Avian
Mac Miller Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Look, concoctions of hamantashens, launching a bottle rocket
Done being nice, I'm here for your life and all the profits
I'm not your conscience, you nuts? almonds and hagen dazs
Auction off your grandfather's watch, from the holocaust
I'm iconic, naked walking in the garden and bird watching
Alarming all of these cardinals like I need a pope
Puffing that white smoke, get faded and play the maestro
I'm ice cold, bunny slippers, nice robe
Sneaky bitch stole my rolly last night yo
I might know some dyke hoes who can
Fight though
Walking on a tight rope, underneath a microscope
But close up, we all just molecules and isotopes
What psychic don't know the future?
To live life you kids might, just close your computer
The street lights might blind you though
Make a collage and look at it through a kaleidoscope

There's a bird in the sky
Look at him fly
Why

Clutchin on the pound
I was runnin' round
Life's a motherfuckin joke so we fuck around
Feel like I do this in my sleep
Literally, I do this in my sleep

A little tv money, dollars for sense of humor
Scholar for my attendance like bueller, so no use for a tutor
Some cold brews in the cooler
Coming through in the wood grain pt cruiser, stuntin'
I'm pissed off like a blind person looking for a restroom
Probably be dead soon inhaling cigarette fumes,
Sorry for that blind people comment, that was just rude
And I was raised better, say god bless you
I'm kenny powers, you more of a debbie downer
My bitch taking off her trousers every time I get around her
I'm nasty, I never shower, go sleep on a bed of flowers
Not into this conversation, I've been in my head for hours
I'm out

There's a bird in the sky




Look at him fly
Why

Overall Meaning

The lyricist is bragging about his luxurious and extravagant lifestyle involving food, clothing, and money. He compares himself to a naked person in a garden birdwatching, which is usually associated with peaceful and serene surroundings. However, the subsequent lines reveal that he is actually living a life of excess and greed, willing to auction off a family heirloom for a profit. He also boasts about stealing or having access to drugs and hiring women to fight for him. The lyrics suggest a lack of concern for morality or ethics and a focus on material possessions and individual pleasure.


The line "what psychic don't know the future?" seems to be a reflection on the uncertainty and unpredictability of life, regardless of someone's supernatural abilities. The lyricist advises the younger generation to not rely on technology and to experience life away from screens. He acknowledges that living in the current society can be overwhelming, as if walking on a tightrope under constant scrutiny. However, he also acknowledges our shared humanity, reminding listeners that we are all made up of molecules and isotopes.

What psychic don't know the future?
No one can predict what lies ahead, so why waste too much time fretting over it?


To live life you kids might, just close your computer
In order to truly live life to the fullest, young people must disconnect from technology and experience the world around them


The street lights might blind you though
Urban life can be overwhelming and all-encompassing, making it difficult to find a clear path forward


Make a collage and look at it through a kaleidoscope
Instead of getting bogged down by the details of life, try to take a step back and appreciate the bigger picture, viewing it in a more colorful and dynamic way


There's a bird in the sky Look at him fly Why
The beauty and freedom of nature is awe-inspiring and thought-provoking


Clutchin on the pound I was runnin' round Life's a motherfuckin joke so we fuck around Feel like I do this in my sleep Literally, I do this in my sleep
Life feels meaningless and absurd, so I spend my time aimlessly and without much thought or effort


A little tv money, dollars for sense of humor Scholar for my attendance like bueller, so no use for a tutor Some cold brews in the cooler Coming through in the wood grain pt cruiser, stuntin'
Despite the lack of direction in my life, I still enjoy some small successes and pleasures, like earning money from TV appearances and having a good sense of humor


I'm pissed off like a blind person looking for a restroom Probably be dead soon inhaling cigarette fumes, Sorry for that blind people comment, that was just rude And I was raised better, say god bless you
I'm angry and frustrated, even in situations that shouldn't normally bother me, and I know that my reckless lifestyle will likely lead to an early death


I'm kenny powers, you more of a debbie downer My bitch taking off her trousers every time I get around her I'm nasty, I never shower, go sleep on a bed of flowers Not into this conversation, I've been in my head for hours
I'm confident and self-assured, while those around me seem pessimistic and negative. My relationships are based on sexual attraction rather than any real emotional connection, and I have a carefree, messy lifestyle that others might find off-putting


I'm out
I'm done with this conversation or situation, and I'm ready to move on to something else
