Lyrics

왜들 그리 다운돼있어?
뭐가 문제야 say something
분위기가 겁나 싸해
요새는 이런 게 유행인가
왜들 그리 재미없어?
아 그건 나도 마찬가지
Tell me what I got to do
급한 대로 블루투스 켜

아무 노래나 일단 틀어
아무거나 신나는 걸로
아무렇게나 춤춰
아무렇지 않아 보이게
아무 생각 하기 싫어
아무개로 살래 잠시
I’m sick and tired of my everyday
Keep it up 한곡 더

아무 노래나 일단 틀어 (틀어)
아무렴 어때 it’s so boring
아무래도 refresh가 시급한 듯해 쌓여가 스트레스가
배꼽 빠질 만큼만 폭소하고 싶은 날이야 yo
What up my dawgs 어디야 너희
올 때 병맥주랑 까까 몇개 사와 huh

클럽은 구미가 잘 안 당겨 (ay)
우리 집 거실로 빨랑 모여
외부인은 요령껏 차단 시켜
밤새 수다 떨 시간도 모자라
누군 힘들어 죽겠고 누군 축제
괜히 싱숭생숭 I want my youth back
좀 전까지 왁자지껄
하다 한명 두명씩 자릴 떠

왜들 그리 다운돼있어?
뭐가 문제야 say something
분위기가 겁나 싸해
요새는 이런 게 유행인가
왜들 그리 재미없어?
아 그건 나도 마찬가지
Tell me what I got to do
급한 대로 블루투스 켜

아무 노래나 일단 틀어
아무거나 신나는 걸로
아무렇게나 춤춰
아무렇지 않아 보이게
아무 생각 하기 싫어 (don don don)
아무개로 살래 잠시 (why)
I’m sick and tired of my everyday
Keep it up 한곡 더

떠나질 못할 바엔
창밖은 쳐다도 안 봐
회까닥해서 추태를 부려도
No worries at all
이미지 왜 챙겨 그래 봤자 우리끼린데

Oh 늦기 전에 막판 스퍼트
20대가 얼마 안 남았어
편한 옷으로 갈아입어

You look nice, get ’em high
얼핏 보면 그냥 코미디 (코미디)
이렇게 무해한 파티 처음이지? (처음이지?)
만감이 교차하는 새벽 2시경
술잔과 감정이 소용돌이쳐

왜들 그리 다운돼있어?
뭐가 문제야 say something
분위기가 겁나 싸해
요새는 이런 게 유행인가
왜들 그리 재미없어?
아 그건 나도 마찬가지
Tell me what I got to do
급한 대로 블루투스 켜

아무 노래나 일단 틀어
아무거나 신나는 걸로
아무렇게나 춤춰
아무렇지 않아 보이게
아무 생각 하기 싫어 (don don don)
아무개로 살래 잠시 (why)
I’m sick and tired of my everyday
Keep it up 한곡 더
아무 노래나 일단

La la la, la la la la la la
La la la, la la la la la la

아무 노래 아무 노래 아무 노래나 틀어봐
아무 노래 아무 노래 아무 노래나 틀어봐 yeh
아무 노래 아무 노래 아무 노래나 틀어봐
아무 노래 아무 노래 아무 노래나 K.O.Z

Full Lyrics

In a world increasingly governed by disconnection and disillusionment, ZICO’s ‘Any Song’ has emerged as an unexpected anthem. With a laid-back groove that belies its deeper sociocultural critique, the track reflects the ennui that pervades the digital age. It’s not just about the surface-level engagement — it deftly encapsulates the zeitgeist of a generation in a seemingly innocuous party track.

But this is no ordinary party song. It’s an artful blend of catchy rhythms and insightful commentary on the malaise that many young people feel. ZICO, known for his laser-sharp perception of contemporary culture, delivers an offering that resonates with those looking to escape the mundane, if only for a moment. Below, we dive deep into the layers of ‘Any Song,’ peeling back the nuances laced within its infectious beat.

Dance Away the Apathy: ‘Any Song’s’ Call to Action

The song begins with a questioning incipit — why is everyone so down? Immediately, ZICO confronts listeners with a query that reverberates through our collective consciousness. The lyrics then propel us into action, compelling the listener to turn on any song and dance with reckless abandon. It’s not about the music; it’s about the act of liberation from our ruminations, the shackles of daily life that we become so tangled in.

‘Any Song’ becomes a sonic escape hatch, where ZICO invites us to engage in the simplest form of joy: music and movement. By summoning this impulse, ZICO doesn’t only give us permission to let go — he insists on it.

The Illusion of Carefree Spirit in Monotonous Existence

‘I just wanna dance like nothing’s wrong,’ ZICO croons, encapsulating a desire to exude an exterior of nonchalance. This pursuit of outward carefreeness while battling inner tumult is a generational front. The facade we are implored to maintain is strained and ‘Any Song’ becomes an anthem for acknowledging that pretense.

The repetition of the word ‘any’ suggests a level of indifference that is acutely relatable — it doesn’t matter what song plays, what dance moves are performed, or what thoughts are pushed away. This mantra reflects the inner scream for a respite from the continuous cycle of monotony and the craving for a moment of release.

The Search for Identity in ‘Any’: ZICO’s Hidden Commentary

ZICO masterfully uses the concept of ‘any’ to reflect the stripping of identity — ‘I want to live as Anybody for a while.’ In a society where individuality is championed, yet ironically mass-produced, these lyrics touch on the existential struggle of self-definition. Amidst identity crises and social pressures, becoming ‘Anybody’ feels like the only viable escape; a temporary yet seductive solution.

The song serves as a commentary on social conformity and the depersonalization that can come with trying to keep up with ever-changing trends and expectations. It’s a critique of the superficiality within everyday life and a satirical take on the role that performing for our peers plays in self-perception.

Lyrical Laughter and the Pursuit of Fleeting Joy

There’s a poignant admission where ZICO appears to derive pleasure from the idea of a laugh so profound it knocks the wind out of you. ‘I wanna laugh until my belly hurts’ — the verse is an ode to those rare, genuinely uninhibited moments of joy that become deeper cries of the soul.

This line highlights the stark contrast between these treasured instances of happiness and the default state of play: a stale, mundane atmosphere where laughter is as scarce as authenticity. The desire for reprieve from society’s oppressive grip, just enough to belly laugh with friends, becomes a rallying cry in ‘Any Song.’

The Clock Ticks on Youth: A Reminder to Seize the Moment

In a mixture of somber realization and subtle urgency, ZICO remarks on the fleeting nature of youth. ‘Before it’s too late, let’s sprint at the end; Not much of my twenties is left.’ These words are not just a memento mori; they are a call to reclaim the dwindling currency of our younger years before it’s irretrievably spent.

He implores listeners to swap their constrained selves for more comfortable attire — both literally and metaphorically. Here, ZICO isn’t only referring to the physical comfort of clothing but also to the comfort of being one’s true self. This metaphor serves as an invitation to drop the societal mask and genuinely embrace the moment, with all its raw, unpolished simplicity.
