Today’s song of the day is off of the 2007 album “Remapping the Human Soul” by Epik High. Epik High is known for their often satirical hip hop and rap music. “Mr. Doctor” is one of those songs.

While I don’t really understand the Korean parts of the song, the English parts rapped by Tablo are pretty awesome. If you listen closely, you can hear his critiques on the current society (he even takes a jab at George W. Bush… Hehehehe). While this song may not be for everyone, I think that there are a lot of people out there who can appreciate this song as much as I do.

Mp3 player is suppose to be here. Try upgrading to the latest version of flash if you do not see it.

Yeah, he even does a sprinkling of politics and stuff...Tablo is amazing.


yeah i like how they cover other issues besides the overused sex, drugs, money etc…


Tablo’s lyrics are also so...pertinent to real life? But that’s why they’re really good, even if they’re disturbing at times (because they deal with scary things) xD


^ yah it really helps me understand more!


^ Thanks for sharing the translation! ^^


i found translations, not sure on the accuracy though,

05. Mr. Doctor
translation by: chubzy @ soompi; also credits to: epikflow

Rather than burning up my will
I light up a cigarette
In a conversation where I can’t look at the person I’m talking to,
I sit here wasting my breath
My daily pain of my life
Alights the eyes of the government
Someone’s rumor
Spreads like a summer’s flood
The burning sun up in the morning sky…
What if it melts me down?
I fear the world…
Fighting to smile
They try to settle my mind by injecting me with another morphine needle,
The thick curtains closed in my room…
Makes it a room where darkness dries out light
Within my own policies and rules
Even the God lays asleep.
The sign of purity within the white walls and ceiling
I take out my blood drawn sketch of freedom

Crazy graffiti on the walls
I’ve seen things that is not of worth
I have gone too far
Shut up shut up Mr. Doctor X2

blame it on contaminated wisdom
poorly sanitated injections
gory animated visions
no we can’t evade the system
or the virus no survivors
you might as well
just die on us
the iris on the dollar bill’s
got a fukin’ eye on us
and George double-u of course
troubles you
but your chores muzzle you
what’s yours smuggles you
in this slave trade
lie and kill to stay paid
diet pills and AKs
silent hill day trade
mister missus
this is the business
from kiss to kisses
from dish to dishes
the price on your head
is triple sixes
and this is reality
human bestiality
put a bullet in my cavity
to feed your vanity
I’m crazy

I’m Crazy graffiti on the walls
I’ve seen things that is not of worth
I have gone too far
Shut up shut up Mr. Doctor X2

Slowly I get trapped, it’s growing darker…
There isn’t even space for me to lay a foot
My lungs are drowning deeper and deeper
I want to shout and scream
But they’re listening to my voice
I want to spread my hands out
But my wrists has been cut off
Answer me 1, 2
It’s a fight I have in the bright light of the day (midday)
The up roar made of cold hearts
Nothing but a shriek is heard
Looking for freedom was a waste of energy
Nothing but a feather of a pigeon going by
When I wake up light the area wth fire…
A cigarette was nothing but dust
The hands of the government
And it’s rotting dagger
Even if by body is cut and slit…
Even if the war ended without getting caught..
My masterpiece of revenge
Match it to the rhythm of my pulse
My trickery sinking within me…

Crazy graffiti on the walls
I’ve seen things that is not of worth
I have gone too far
Shut up shut up Mr. Doctor X2
crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy…


the song is really nice! but too bad i dont understand korean! *i should start learning* but epik high is always epic~ :D
