Turtles All The Way Down Song Lyrics

I’ve seen Jesus play with flames

In a lake of fire that I was standing in

Met the devil in Seattle

And spent nine 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 into the eyes of my best friend…

*******

Says my son, “It’s all been done

And someday you’re 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 minds

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..
