On The Ground lyrics
On The Ground
- It’s funny when you want it
Suddenly you have it
In this sense, Rosé singing the lyrics “gold’s just plastic” could refer to how something so affluent and beautiful on the exterior to the public, is in fact fake on the inside, with many artists feeling like they must live “staged” lives.
The promise of becoming a star as a trainee is a goal in which lots of young aspiring Korean artists must work towards everyday, yet once they achieve this status in the limelight and become famous, they often question whether this is the life that they can commit to for the rest of their career
- I’ve been thinking back on you and I:
Here 'you' is the Rose before she got famous, 'I' is the present Rose as an artist
- Nah but they don’t hear me though (Yeah what goes ...:
In the post-chorus, Rosé sings from two perspectives: herself, and someone who hates her.
Therefore, Rosé makes it clear that she knows what others say about her and her fellow bandmates, but ultimately dismisses them, due to their lack of knowledge of who she truly is as a person; from working tirelessly to push herself as an artist.
- I’m way up in the clouds
And they say I’ve made it...:
Here, Rosé acknowledges her current status, and the acknowledgements and compliments she gets from others, whilst also remaining aware of the fact that before her fame, she already had everything she ever needed, and is content with her life.
