Sturgill Simpson - Turtles All the Way Down
Janill Gilbert stashed this in Music
Love the sound and lyrics to this one. Sturgill is from Jackson, Kentucky, is 36 years old, and just had his first child June 2014, a son :)
I've seen Jesus play with flames in a lake of fire that I was standing in.
Met the devil in Seattle and spent 9 months inside the lions den.
Met Buddha yet another time and he showed me a glowing light within.
But I swear that God is there every time I glare in the eyes of my best friend.
Says my son it's all been done and someday yer gonna wake up old and gray.
So go and try to have some fun showing warmth to everyone,
You meet and greet and cheat along the way.
There's a gateway in our mind that leads somewhere out there far beyond this plane.
Where reptile aliens made of light cut you open and pull out all your pain.
Tell me how you make illegal something that we all make in our brain.
Some say you might go crazy but then again it might make you go sane.
Every time I take a look inside that old and fabled book
I'm blinded and reminded of the pain caused by some old man in the sky.
Marijuana, LSD, psilocybin, and DMT they all changed the way I see
But love's the only thing that ever saved my life.
So don't waste your mind on nursery rhymes
Or fairy tales of blood and wine
It's turtles all the way down the line.
So to each their own til' we go home
To other realms our souls must roam
To and through the myth that we all call space and time.
This is the deepest country song I have ever heard. Wow.
It is! My favorite line is; "But love's the only thing that ever saved my life."
That is a great line!
