Sturgill Simpson – Turtles All the Way Down

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 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

Tool – Rosetta Stoned

Biisi viitannee LSD:n käyttöön ja Keenan intoutuu kriittisehköön sävyyn laulamaan isommasta maailman ymmärtämisestä?!? Ei mitkään yksiselitteiset sanat.

”All righty then
Picture this if you will

10 to 2 am, X, yogi DMT, and a box of krispy kreme’s in my ”need to know” pose just outside of area 51, contemplating the whole chosen people thingy when just then a flaming stealth banana split the sky like one would hope but never really expect to see in a place like this. Cutting right angle donuts on a dime and stopping right at my birkinstocks, and me yelping ”holy fuckin’ shit!”

Then the X file being, looking like some kinda blue green Jackie chan, with Isabella Rossellini lips, and breath that reeked of vanilla chig champa, did a slow mo matrix decent outta the butt end of the banana vessel, and hovered above my bug eyes, my gaping jaw, and my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip and all I could think was, ”I hope uncle martin here doesn’t notice that I pissed my fuckin pants!!”

So light in his way, like an apparition, he’d had me crying out…
”Fuck me!
It’s gotta be
The dead head
The blotter got right on top o’ me
Got me seeing E mutha fuckin T!”

And after calming me down with some orange slices and some fetal spooning, E.T. revealed to me his singular purpose. He said. ”you are the chosen one. The one who will deliver the message. A message of hope for those who choose to hear it, and a warning for those who do not.” Me! The chosen one. They chose me!!!! And I didn’t even graduate from fuckin’ high school!!

(You’d better listen)

Then he looked right through me with somniferous almond eyes
Don’t even know what that means
Must remember to write it down
This is so real
Like the time Dave floated away
See, my heart is pounding cuz this shit never happens to me.

Can’t breathe right now.

It was so real
Like I woke up in Wonderland
All sorta terrifying
I don’t wanna be all alone
While I tell this story
And can anyone tell me why y’all sound like peanuts parents?
Will I ever be coming down?
This is so real
Finally it’s my lucky day
See, my heart is racing cuz this shit never happens to me

Can’t breathe right now.

You believe me don’t you?
Please believe what I’ve just said
See, the dead ain’t touring and this wasn’t all in my head
See they took me by the hand
And invited me right in
Then they showed me something
I don’t even know where to begin

Strapped down to my bed
Feet cold and eyes red
I’m out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Can’t remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

Overwhelmed as one would be placed in my position
Such a heavy burden now to be the one
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending
To write it down for all the world to see
But I forgot my pen
Shit the bed again

Strapped down to my bed
Feet cold and eyes red
I’m out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead.
Sunkist and Sudafed
Gyroscopes and infrared
Won’t help. I’m brain dead
Can’t remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

Can’t remember what they said to me
Can’t remember what they said to make me out to be a hero
Can’t remember what they said
Bob help me
Can’t remember what they said

We don’t know and we won’t know
God damn shit the bed”
