Sturgill Simpson
Language: English



[2016]
Parole e musica di Sturgill Simpson, classe 1978, sicuramente uno dei principali innovatori e rifondatori dei generi Country e Americana.
La canzone che chiude il suo ultimo album, “A Sailor's Guide to Earth” (dove c'è anche una splendida cover di “In Bloom” di Kurt Cobain)

A Sailor's Guide to Earth

Stai lontano dall'esercito, figliolo, non devi pensare che uno debba essere un pupazzo per essere un uomo... E stai lontano anche dai media e dai social, sono solo cave di stronzate...
I done Syria, Afganistan, Iraq, and Iran
North Korea tell me where does it end
Well the bodies keep piling up with every day
How many more of em they gonna send

Well they send their sons and daughters off to die
For some oil
To control the heroin
Well son I hope you don’t grow up
Believing that you’ve got to be a puppet to be a man

Well they cut off your hair and put a badge on your arm
Strip you of your identity
Tell you to keep your mouth shut boy and get in the line
Meet your maker over seas

Wearing that Kim Jong-il hat
While your grandma’s selling pills stat
Meanwhile, I’m wearing my ‘can’t pay my fucking bills’ hat

Nobody’s looking up to care about a drone
All too busy looking down at our phone
Our ego’s begging for food like a dog from our feed
Refreshing obsessively until our eyes start to bleed
They serve up distractions and we eat them with fries
Until the bombs fall out of our fucking skies

Turn off the TV
Turn off the news
Nothing to see here
They’re serving the blues
Bullshit on my TV
Bullshit on my radio
Hollywood telling me how to be me
The bullshit’s got to go
