Yo, hey yo it's me myself and I
Yeah I'm back again
I played the background watching what's been happening
I never thought when I was fucking up in school that this shit would even
Work
If it doesn't I'll be cool
Even if for now I only manage to scrape by
As long as I'm living off of rap it's a great life
So I'm gonna take my ways I create this
And take time cock back and aim at a great height
This is it though, I'd better step forward then
It's a chance to be forever airborne
But I'm never happy with the second best score
While I'm chasing after a dream I never slept for
Just to get my rap on
Talking about whatever I have done
Find believe even when I have none
So fuck it, I'm about to have fun
And not think about this life, cause we only have one

I'm sorry that I'm so late, yo I slept in
You can't blame me, I was having the best dream
I was watching my life up on the big screen
Had the present on pause, flicking to the next scene
It had me and everybody coming together
Sky high while we're running the heaven
Let me take you to a place where it's summer forever
So there'll be no chance in hell of feeling under the weather
But look, I know that I can be whatever I believe
I keep my feet grounded and bring the sky to me
Most people have grown egos
But it's so see through, I'll show that there's no need too
Even go that route
I did it before, but see I know that now
But see I know it's hard, but I laugh in the face of death
While living life on the edge without a safety net
Lets go

I heard the sky is falling down, but that's me flying up again
The sky is falling... falling...
I see the sky is falling down, though they got me going up again
The sky is falling... falling...
I'm falling again...

See I know it's a fight to the top
And any other day, yo you're likely to flop
Some lies will arise in your eyes and entice you to stop
But the sky is the prize that I want
And now to show my style and to boast my skills
And I don't know how but I know I will
Cause I have to be the best
It's win win for me cause rap relieves the stress
The industry now is in a big crisis
It's innocently down(loading?) by these kid pirates
And if your listen out and think this shit fire,
Stop being ignorant now, you think it's sick, buy it
Uh, I understand if you don't buy it
Supporters need the supporters who go find it
But for now I'm gonna go flying
I'm so high that you won't find me so don't try it

I heard the sky is falling down, but that's me flying up again
The sky is falling... falling...
I see the sky is falling down, though they got me going up again
The sky is falling... falling...
I'm falling again... aaahhhaaa...
Cause even when I'm falling I'm flying
The sky is falling... falling...
Cause even when I'm falling I'm flying
I know your trying to call me down... down...
The sky is falling... falling...
Before the sky will reach the ground...

I heard the sky is falling down, but that's me flying up again
The sky is falling... falling...
I see the sky is falling down, though they got me going up again
The sky is falling... falling...
I'm falling again...

The sky is falling...

    It's about how no matter what life deals you, follow your dreams. If you never try, it won't ever happen. Believe in yourself, be a good person & good things will follow. Way to go 360... Melbourne is a great city & only "up the road" from g'town.

    The take off was the first song written on the album, 360 and styles wored all day on the beat and at the end of the day styles said to 60, ill do it you go home, 360 gets this call and styles is like its finished, hed done a chorus and everything and from then on the words just came out straight away and it was the first song on the album finished.

    I think that what the meaning of the take off is that no matter how bad something is, theres always something that will lift your spirit cause theres someone to save you.
