This ethereal Satellite Flight track finds an angry Kudi targeting people who trash talk him, then won't look him in the eyes when he walks into a room. However, he goes on to rap about feeling rejuvenated and being in a positive space. Cudi wrote the song in the early 2010s when he was in a dark place. "But, you can tell in the lyrics I was on my way to understanding where I needed to be," he told Complex magazine." I was starting to grow and mature there. There were little inklings of little hints there. That song was definitely that. I was on my way to climbing out the darkness and that verse kind of proves it."
Satellite Flight is a mixture of instrumentals and rapped songs. Cudi told Complex magazine that he won't rap unless he's inspired. He explained: "I have a bunch of powers but unfortunately I cannot write raps unless I'm ultimately fueled to write a rap, and it happens every so often. When it does happen it happens in the way of a 'Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now.' Where I've been waiting to unleash and I finally have and even though you haven't heard many raps from me, it's just enough to have you satisfied. Also, I aim for timeless. That's always a goal."
"Cleveland Rocks" was written by an Englishman. Ian Hunter wrote the song after touring America in the late '70s and finding that Cleveland was by far the most receptive city to his brand of Glam Rock.
