Mike Shinoda – Lift Off Lyrics

Lift Off by Mike Shinoda | from Album “Post Traumatic”

Released : 2018

Yeah

Lift off like Virgin Galactic
My Richard’s too Branson to fuck with you bastards
Very legendary that’s some matter of fact shit
You’re the opposite of star, it’s like rats spelled backward
I flow poems out to Saturn and past it
Easy as a standard anti-gravity back flip
Satellite tracking can’t map up my tactics
I spit the same shit they split an atom in half with
No, it’s not what I want but it had to be
I spent six months just recharging my battery
Imagine me quitting, what a travesty that’d be
You Space Shuttle Challengers are nothin’ but tragedies
So take care on the path that you’re headed
I’m the father to your star, don’t you ever forget it
I don’t drop mics, only let it smoke where I set it
And I don’t play, even when they press it, get it?

I’m off of the earth, I’ll ride alone
I’m drifting away, out of time, I flow
Away from the truth, away from the night
Away from the day
I’m off of the earth, I’ll ride alone

Please brace for impact, I musta went to space and got sent back
But I’m still intact, in fact, take a picture of me
You can see that I’m a star with your lens cracked
Supernova, in Caesar’s palace [?] my opponents
‘Cause history’ll show, we done been to war like Romans
Did that dance with the devil, held high there’s a kettle
So it’s no wonder why I put this ice on all of my metal
I’ll wear that shit like a medal, used to think I was a joker
No Jared Leto when I said I’d get us out the ghetto
Slam my foot on the pedal, put the studio
When I couldn’t afford instrumentals
Fuck it, record a cappella
Flying coach streaming Coachella until they ban me
Now they like Bambi’s mother’s, dead, I’m onto these Grammies
I’m rolling these grams gladly, purple and green like [?]
Shades on like Velma, hair long like Shaggy
Crush [?] I got my voice rasping
Haven’t slept since California and that shit was last week
Paranoid when I sleep but when I’m high I’m happy
That’s what I need to kiss the sky when I get stuck in the valley
Lift off

I’m off of the earth, I’ll ride alone
I’m drifting away, out of time, I flow
Away from the truth, away from the night
Away from the day
I’m off of the earth, I’ll ride alone
