¹ T/N: In Sea, a hidden track of LOVE YOURSELF: Her, BTS sings about how the sea it has dreamed of is actually another desert. Sinking to the bottom of the sea with no light, they face their shadow.
² T/N: Path is another hidden track of their discography (2 Cool 4 Skool; BTS’ debut single album), where they talk about their path as artists at the onset of their career. In Black Swan, it is the fear of losing the pure passion and love for music that makes them feel lost (in the first half the song) and stand back up again (in the second half of the song).
³ T/N: In Butterfly, “My Kafka on the shore, please don’t go to the forest over there”
In FAKE LOVE, “A forest of just us, you were not there. I forgot the route that I came along.” / In Kafka on the Shore (Haruki Murakami; RM is a known fan of Murakami), the forest is a kind of labyrinth that represents the understanding of the self.
⁴ T/N: In The Last, “The greed that used to be my weapon now swallows me, ruins me, and puts a leash around my neck.” | In Interlude : Shadow, “People say, in that bright light, it’s splendor / But my shadow rather grows even bigger, sallows me, and  becomes a monster.”
