Samples / Lyrics[edit]

  • Samples a vocal shot of Colonel Abrams "Trapped"
    • Throughout the track, the phrase "what you're" can be heard, slightly pitched up and with a possible slight vocoder effect. Credit to Brady Brignac for this discovery. [1]
  • Throughout the song is the voice sample saying what appears to be "Watch it", followed by "It's alright".
  • Backwards: "There are a lot of different 'me's, you know. There's the mad me, when I get angry."
    • [DC] [Second quote: same Sesame Street vignette as "Whitewater" lyrics] [2]
  • Samples the song "Getaway" by music group Earth Wind and Fire throughout the song. [3]
    • "I know we can!" plays at 2:17 in Sixtyten as well as in Getaway.
  • Samples the song "On Your Face" by music group Earth Wind and Fire (forwards at 2:27, reversed at 3:28 and elsewhere in the song). [4]
    • When the sample is reversed and corrected for pitch "Keep a smiling face" plays at 3:28 in Sixtyten, taken from 1:10 in On Your Face. [5]
  • The separate vignette at the end of the track is believed to be a composition named "Blueberry".[6]
