***Warning, Real Country Music below**** MUahahahaha

"Turtles all the way down"
by Sturgill Simpson

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 inside that old and fabled book
I'm blinded and reminded of the pain caused by some old man in the sky
Marijuana, L S D, psilocybin, and D M T 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

["Turtles all the way down" is a jocular expression of the infinite regress problem in cosmology posed by the "unmoved mover" paradox. The metaphor in the anecdote represents a popular notion of the myth that Earth is actually flat and is supported on the back of a World Turtle, which itself is propped up by a chain of larger and larger turtles. Questioning what the final turtle might be standing on, the anecdote humorously concludes that it is "turtles all the way down".

The phrase has been commonly known since at least the early 20th century. A comparable metaphor describing the circular cause and consequence for the same problem is the "chicken and egg problem". The same problem in epistemology is known as the Münchhausen trilemma]

I saw your warning.. I'd say that was more of a folk song, than country.

Great lyrics.

I'd agree it's a folkish song, but the album itself is country. And, a type of country you just don't hear! Metamodern Sounds of Country Music is the name of the album. Great songs! It's his second album. However IMO Metamodern is definitely the better of the two and an album, if you can appreciate good country music, that's worth checking out.

Can't place a rhythm, but it sounds like general rainbow family music. That's not saying it's bad at all. Just that I might hear it by a tree at a gathering.

I like the title.

edit: I've heard his music before. Didn't realize it until I looked him up. Thanks for refreshing me.
