MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA SONG BREAKDOWN thread

Song: HOME
Translation: @BTS_Trans

(I was bored one day...😔Just a series of interpretations... I’ll do one song at a time. Excuse my word vomit/babbling.)

#BTS #TheGroup #PCAs + @BTS_twt
+ 1ST VERSE: This talks about being nervous or anxious to go out to the world. Seems like BTS being nervous about touring the world, yet they say “the whole world is my home.”

#LoveYourselfSpeakYourself #TheConcertTour #PCAs + @BTS_twt

+ 2ND VERSE: Even BTS thinks it’s “crazy for myself” or ridiculous almost. In this verse they talk about their disbelief in this somewhat illusory reality they’re living in. They talk about the pressures they experience, and thinking that it can’t go all in the way they want to+
+& that they’re supposed to be an “example to the world.” They “left home” wanting everything to be real more than thinking it was all real from the start.+

#BoyWithLuv #TheMusicVideo #PCAs + @BTS_twt
3RD VERSE: This verse talks about the consequence of leaving home. How they did “shine with flashin’ lights” and “got lotta friends.” Then it follows with how BTS remembers the past, how they felt like they could get anything they wanted. The talk about seeing the ocean before+
+ opening the “door” seems to say that they know what they are about to get in the firsthand (and were aiming for it). Or that they have achieved things before they got through that door to the ocean.
+ 4TH VERSE: This verse seems to talk about having a glass filled and feeling it empty. Like the more successful they are, the more they feel empty. And the more they are together with someone, the more they feel alone… Seems like there’s a disconnect with the reality.+
+ How they feel separation from reality and distance from that person after being with that person.+
+ CHORUS (2 STANZAS): The “Mi Casa” they’re talking about seems to pertain to ARMYs. They feel “rich” and when they say “turn it on in advance, your switch,” it seems to pertain to turning on the ARMY bombs/lightsticks like a house’s light—a sign of welcome.

(2nd stanza) This+
+ talks like “home is where the heart is.” This talks about how the other person gives BTS comfort and “ease.” Also talks about ARMYS and how “everywhere will become my home” if they are there. It talks about yearning again and how that other is that person who can appease their+
+ yearning.

2ND CHORUS/PRECHORUS/BRIDGE: This talks about longing or missing someone and also wanting their love and needing their touch.+
+ 5TH VERSE: This verse seems to talk of the feeling when there are no lights. With the “lights out,” there is a pervading sense of desolation/isolation and being “pathetic.”+
+ 6TH VERSE: This talks about the expectation that BTS have everything they want. The “big house, big cars, big rings” that they once wanted or hoped for in No More Dream. +
+ 7TH VERSE: This verse talks about having everything yet still feeling like they lack something. How there is a paradox of feeling fulfilled yet still unfulfilled or unsatisfied. Yet a difference is the mention of having something to return to.+
+ 8TH VERSE (CHORUS AFTER THIS): This talks about how BTS remembers the other person when they had “nothing to show” and how they “could smile at the thought of” that person. Despite distance.+
+ BRIDGE: This talks about a plea for that other person to welcome them to their “home,” to continue to let them in, and also to make them finally say “hello” that they weren’t able to do so before.+
+ CODA CHORUS (DIFFERENTLY WORDED): This verse seems to be addressed directly to their “Mi Casa.” If the previous verses were descriptions or recollections, this one is a verse of encountering that “Mi Casa,” and what they wanted to say to that person. But a twist is that the+
+ other person did turn on their “switch” and have therefore welcomed them.

2ND CHORUS (REFRAIN): These last 2 stanzas are rephrasings but we see that there is indeed reciprocation or a perceived one @ least. These verses continue to be about what they want to say to the other.
