MBLAQ talked about the lyrics for their latest title track “Mirror” and relates it to the departure of their former members, Thunder and Lee Joon.
On June 9th, the remaining three members of the group met with the press as they commemorate the release of their 8th mini-album, Mirror. This will be the first comeback of the group since transforming into a trio following the leave of Lee Joon and Thunder last year.
Using the public for the first time for their sentiments, MBLAQ confirmed that they have used the experience and incorporated it into their lyrics. For example, one part of the track says that, “I trusted you over all other and maybe that’s why it hurts so much. There wasn’t even a word of apology. I cherished you over everything else and it’s hurts so much I can’t. No. I’m okay without you. I pretend I’m doing well without you. Everyone around asks how you are, I don’t know but you’re probably doing well. You’re so busy and always struggling for tomorrow.” To this Seungho explained that depending on one’s viewpoint, the lyrics can be interpreted differently. The group only wanted to disclose the full details of the discord but as there many good memories, they don’t want it ruined. He ended the statement by saying, “Just let us say, we are cheering for each other.”
As the lyrics of the track goes harsher as the track progressed, G.O explained with an additional comment saying, “We can’t say the lyrics are specifically meant for them but because we don’t have too much experience in love we used our current emotion and situations to turn it into a love story,” and “Also we are better singers than the two. So now we have more parts we feel like we can finally sing. Of course, they were better dancers than us.”
The lyrics in question reads as, “I have no time to pay attention to you. Now I take off the filthy clothes and realize what being me really is. Now I begin a bright tomorrow. You need to let things be I hear bad things about me from people around me because of your fake attitude. Well you did leave after telling me a bunch of lies I’m sure you want to come back but now I don’t need you anymore. I guess we drifted apart far enough for you to leave without a word like that.”
Meanwhile, MBLAQ portrayed the image of betrayal and leave through the music video and track of “Mirror” released on June 8th.
