"Delta 1406" as written by Mike Posner, Emanuel Griggs and Roderick Marshall....
I can't come down
Not today I feel alright
They believe every word I say and it seems so jaded
Every place I go feels so jaded
People all around but I'm all alone
The clock in my head won't stop tickin'
The clock in my head won't stop tickin'
The phone in my hand rings all day long
I've been in l.a almost 5 months now
I'm trying to pretend it feels like home oh oh

Maybe I flew to far
Shooting stars leave no mark
I can't come down
Not today I feel alright
They believe every word I say and it seems so jaded
Every place I go feels so jaded
People all around but I'm all alone

I know my dad only gotta few years now
He's gonna cry when he hears this song
And things with mom have become so weird now
I gotta book hotels for my Detroit shows, oh oh

Maybe I flew to far
Shooting stars leave no mark
I can't come down
Not today I feel alright
They believe every word I say and it seems so jaded (jaded)
Every place I go feels so jaded (jaded)
People all around but I'm all alone

    Song MeaningI think it's his quick rise to fame that's getting to him. It's a song about him being homesick. He even said he wrote it on the flight Delta 1406 from Detroit to LA. He's a stranger around everyone and he's growing apart from his home. Maybe he also regrets leaving everything behind. His fame is a big subject here, especially when he says "Shooting stars leave no mark" meaning that rising to fame too fast means you'll just fall back soon, and have nothing to show for it.
