Past the Space Needle, golden shower on pedestrians
"Excuse me, that’s my bad, that’s my eagle and he shouldn’t have"

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – Gold Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

His eagle flew past the space needle and “golden showered” the people walking below.

Remember this dude from “Thrift Shop”?

Mack is referring to the actual Space Needle, a unique landmark and addition to the skyline of Seattle.

Mack should’ve checked his science! Birds don’t really pee; their urinary waste comes out in their poop, and it’s white, not gold.
