S.D.S.
Mac Miller Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Close my eyes before I cross the street
If a car about to hit me, then he ought to beep
Watching Dawson's Creek 'til I fall asleep
It's harder than it seems, I'm under water in my dreams
I'm in awe, this jigsaw, puzzles not complete
I'm just an idea, nothing concrete
Came to raise limits, get higher than plane engines
They tryna change with us, but come to the same difference
Shut your pie-hole, I'm dope and I know
My voice sound like it was a sample off a vinyl
I don't mind those hatin' on my style
I tend to take the high road, get stoned and fly low
I'm no God, I don't think that I'm a human, though cause I'm so odd
People sellin' drugs cause they can't find no job
Wonder if Christ made a million off selling the cross
Let bygones be bygones, my mind strong as pythons
The day that I die on will turn me to an icon
Search the world for Zion or a shoulder I can cry on
The best of all time, I'm Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan

Somebody do somethin'
Somebody do somethin'
Somebody do somethin'
Somebody do somethin'
Yeah yeah yeah somebody move somethin'
Yeah yeah somebody move somethin'
Yeah yeah somebody move somethin'
Yeah yeah yeah somebody move somethin'
It ain't no party like aristocratic party ey
Said, ain't no party like aristocratic party ey

Yeah yo sipping Jameson like I was majored in whiskey flavoring
When I'm drunk, I'll cut your head off and leave it dangling
FlyLo's still tryna put me on to Ableton
Asian women love me, I look like David Duchovny
In kindergarten, used to put some condoms in my cubby
In case one of these hoes was tryna fuck me
I ain't nobody, and neither are you
Been contemplating if I even still believe in the truth
I'm so stubborn, I'd rather write my own history book
Where the world don't give a fuck 'bout how you physically look
All your songs are sixteen's and a hook
We're here to reinvent music, it's time for the revolution
I'm down for the movement, trying not to lose it
Jewish Buddhist tryna consume the views of Christianity
Wonder if Hindus like to eat fish soup
If it's true, they should hit Alaska in an igloo
I hear the fish biting nice right now
I can't figure out life and feel right right now
Boo, if I think it, I should say it, there's a reason that I write it down
Spit the shit that leave a diaper brown, poo

Somebody do somethin'
Yo yo somebody do somethin' (somebody do somethin')
Somebody do somethin' (somebody do somethin')
Somebody do somethin'
And, somebody move somethin'
Yo yea yo somebody move somethin'
You right there,




Somebody move somethin'
Somebody move somethin', yo yo yo yo yo

Overall Meaning

In Mac Miller's song "S.D.S.," the lyrics are a stream-of-consciousness reflection on life, dreams, and the search for meaning. The lyrics begin with a simple idea: closing one's eyes before crossing the street. However, the song quickly turns more philosophical as Mac Miller contemplates the incompleteness of life, the idea of raising limits, and the failure of people to change despite their efforts. He muses on the nature of his own identity, calling himself "just an idea, nothing concrete," and wonders whether he is human or something else entirely.


The song's chorus is a call to action, imploring somebody to do something, to move something. The verses continue with Mac Miller reflecting on his own life, his alcohol consumption, and his experiences with women. He discusses his stubbornness and the desire to write his own history book, one that does not place value on physical appearance. He also suggests that he is part of a musical revolution, dedicated to reinventing music and keeping it fresh.


Overall, the song showcases Mac Miller's introspection and his willingness to grapple with deep philosophical concepts. The lyrics are dense with meaning and reward close listening and analysis.
