[KOR – ENG Translation] 잔나비 (Jannabi) – 새 어둠 새 눈 (Land of Night)

Legend is one of the year’s brilliant rock releases so far, and I’d say “Land of Night” is my favorite track on that album. Art-rock decadence, prog structure, and these striking lyrics all do their part.

잠든 빛 따돌리고 저 바닷속
헤엄쳐 가자
새 어둠이 오면은 그제서야
새 눈을 뜨자
머나먼 그곳에 닿으면
우린 꿈도 말도 다 잊을 거야

숨죽여 나의 친구여
이건 나를 위한 노래야
숨죽여 나의 친구여
이건 나를 위한 노래야

“빛이 있으라”
“빛이 있으라”

잠든 빛 따돌리고 저 바닷속
헤엄쳐 가자
새 어둠이 오면은 그제서야
새 눈을 뜨자
머나먼 그 곳에 닿으면
우린 꿈도 말도 다 잊을 거야

증명해 내 사랑이여
나를 위한 거라 했잖아
증명해 내 사랑이여
나를 위한 거라 했잖아

“빛이 있으라”
“빛이 있으라”

잠든 빛 따돌리고
새 어둠이 오면은

밤의 나라로 가요
잿빛 담요를 두르고
온 세상이 다 함께 새까만 속
형형색색 발하면
눈을 눈을 감아라

무섭거든 도망치거라

Lose the sleeping light and let us
Swim through that ocean
When new darkness arrives let us then
Open new eyes
When we arrive in that faraway place
Dreams, words, we will forget it all

Hold your breath, my friend
This is a song for me
Hold your breath, my friend
This is a song for me

“Let there be light”
“Let there be light”

Lose the sleeping light and let us
Swim through that ocean
When new darkness arrives let us then
Open new eyes
When we arrive in that faraway place
Dreams, words, we will forget it all

Prove it, my love
You said it’s for me
Prove it, my love
You said it’s for me

“Let there be light”
“Let there be light”

Lose the sleeping light and
When new darkness arrives

Let’s go to the land of night
Wrapped in an ashen blanket
When the whole world together in pitch black
Glows in shapes and colors
Close your eyes, your eyes

If you are afraid, then flee
