BTS Songs With Deep Meaning
BTS songs are deep. They really strike deep. Some of their songs helped me transition through tough phases. So, I decided to write about some BTS songs with deep meaning. I hope you find peace here.
#1 Agust D: The Last
On the other side of the famous idol rapper
Stands my weak self, it’s a bit dangerous
They keep coming back again from time to time
Hell no perhaps that might be my true self
Damn huh feeling estranged in reality
The conflict with ideal, my head hurts
Around the age of 18, I developed social anxiety
Right, that was when my mind was gradually polluted
At times I’m scared of myself too
Thanks to the depression that takes over me
And all my self hatred
Comparing my dead passion with others
It’s now a part of my daily life
On the first visit to psychiatric ward
My parents came up with me
We listened to the consultation together
My parents said they don’t truly understand me
I don’t understand myself well either
Then who would understand?
Friends? Or you? Nobody knows me well
Habitual saying uh
I don’t give a shit I don’t give a fuck
All those words uh
Those words are said to hide my weak self
Those days I wish I could erase
Right, that performance day
Which I don’t remember very well
The day I confronted myself
When I hid inside the bathroom
Because I was scared of people
That time I, that time I
I thought success would make everything fine
But you see, but you see
As time goes by, I feel like I’m turning into a monste
The time I want to erase, that’s right, the memories I want to erase of that day I had at the concert.
On the other side of the famous idol rapper stands my weak self, it’s a bit depression, ocd, they keep coming back again from time to time.
In this song, Suga addresses depression and self hate in the most honest manner as possible. He talks about things without sugar coating it. This is probably the most honest depiction of depression in any song ever.
#2 No More Dream
I wanna big house, big cars & big rings
But in reality, I don’t have any big dreams
Haha I live an easy life
Even if I don’t dream, no one says anything to me
Everyone is thinking the same as me
When we were still young
I said I’ll go to some university
Okay, mum, I’m going to the library
[Pre-Chorus: V, J-Hope]
What is you that you dreamed of?
Who do you see in your mirror, I gotta say
Go your own way
Even if you live a day
Put weakness away
[Verse 2: Jungkook]
Why don’t you say anything? You don’t want to study
You’re too afraid to quit the school, right? See, you’re getting ready for school
Grow up, don’t just talk, You have a weak mind boy
(Stop!) ask yourself, when did you try hard
This song is for all those people with little or no ambition. In this song, they ask you to follow your dreams, pursue it like there’s no tomorrow. The reason being, you’ll lose yourself even before you know it. The song is a symbol for most Asian kids, as they are forced to do things which they don’t like, meet social expectations and carry the burden of their parents. So, if you are looking for some serious inspiration to follow your dreams, then this song is something you should listen to.
Dream is gone, no time to breathe
School, house and PC room is all we have
We live the same life
And have to become number one
For us it’s like a double spy between dream and reality.
The song talks about students being overwhelmed by the expectations placed on them by elders, and the effect it has on their mental well being.
In this song, BTS talks about the enormous amount of pressure elders put on students and how it affects their mental well being. As kids, Asian kids are forced to study a lot and get into a good school, so that they can get a high paying 9 to 5 job and show it off to others. Students are also forced to compete with one another on a regular basis and get beaten or thrashed if they fail to achieve their goals. Lastly, by the time they’re in highschool, most kids get sent into cram schools where there is enormous amount of pressure on the kids. The pressure is so huge that, South Korea has the highest suicide rate in the whole world, all thanks to this one reason. This is one of the best bts song about social issues.
