Song meaning of Saturn by SZA


A nihilistic SZA talks about an existential crisis in the song's lyrics, expressing dissatisfaction with Earthly life and wondering if justice can ever prevail in the world. She also wishes that life was about something other than misery. She regrets that the idea of nirvana, or escape from suffering is not available and asks why decent people always seem to suffer unfairly from karma, as they all seem to die young and poor.


SZA considers moving to Saturn, where she might be able to escape her bad habits and the hurt of broken relationships, in search of a life that could be better than her current one on Earth.


Lyrics of Saturn by SZA


If there's another universe

Please make some noise (Noise)

Give me a sign (Sign)

This can't be life

If there's a point to losing love

Repeating pain (Why?)

It's all the same (Same)

I hate this place

 

Stuck in this paradigm

Don't believe in paradise

This must be what Hell is like

There's got to be more, got to be more

Sick of this head of mine

Intrusive thoughts, they paralyze

Nirvana's not as advertised

There's got to be more, been here before

 

Ooh (Ooh, ooh)

Life's better on Saturn

Got to break this pattern

Of floating away

Ooh (Ooh, ooh)

Find something worth saving

It's all for the taking

I always say

 

I'll be better on Saturn

None of this matters

Dreaming of Saturn, oh

 

If karma's really real

How am I still here?

Just seems so unfair

I could be wrong though

If there's a point to being good

Then where's my reward?

The good die young and poor

I gave it all I could

 

Stuck in this terradome (Ooh)

All I see is terrible (Ooh)

Making us hysterical (Ooh)

There's got to be more, got to be more

Sick of this head of mine (Ooh)

Intrusive thoughts, they paralyze (Ooh)

Nirvana's not as advertised (Ooh)

There's got to be more, been here before

 

Ooh (Ooh, ooh)

Life's better on Saturn

Got to break this pattern

Of floating away

Ooh (Ooh, ooh)

Find something worth saving

It's all for the taking

I always say

 

I'll be better on Saturn

None of this matters

Dreaming of Saturn, oh

 

(Ooh, ooh, ooh)

(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
