We don't need to worry
'Cause when we fall, we know how to land

'Permission to Dance' is a power anthem that will encourage you to forget the fears holding you back and unleash your inner fighter, even when you know that you might face failure. In other words, this song serves as a reminder that it is okay to fail because we can always get back stronger than before. You know what they say; what doesn't kill you makes you stronger!

2) So What

So what
Don't stop and worry yourself
It's good for nothing
Let go
Although there's no answer yet
You can start the fight

'So What' will push you to do what you want to do and not mind anything or anyone that comes your way. In life, there will be people who tell you what is right or wrong. Giving us the 'I don't care' vibes, BTS encourages you to live young, wild, and free in this song. 

3) Not Today

If you can't fly, then run
Today we will survive
If you can't run, then walk
Today we will survive
If you can't walk, then crawl
Even if you have to crawl, gear up

The boys in this song show their support for all the underdogs in the world. They express how we might be ordinary and an extra, but we become extraordinary when those two words are combined. As aggressive as the song sounds, the lyrics will motivate and remind you that one day you may lose, but not today!

4) Outro: Wings

I knew these small feathers would become wings
I knew the wings would make me fly
I had that faith
Along with laughter

If you're in search of a song that will motivate you to get up, put your chin up and fly finally, this is it. A beautiful symbolism of how small actions (feathers) will sprout up into significant achievements (wings), 'Outro: Wings' is all about being brave and believing in the wonders you can do.

5) Answer: Love Myself

Loving myself might be harder
Than loving someone else
Let's admit it
The standards I made are more strict for myself
The thick tree rings in your life, 
It's part of you, it's you
Now let's forgive ourselves

The lyrics of this song resonates with BTS' message to their fans, and it explains all the reasons why self-love is just as important as loving others. 'Answer: Love Myself' also resembles the band's campaign with UNICEF to end childhood and teenage violence.
