about

The alternate acoustic version of "Post Rock Country". The lyrics are the same but the music is different; it's slower and is a sort of parody/tribute to country music. This is as close as I'll ever get to making it myself.

lyrics

I'm going down to post rock country
I'm gonna get lost in post rock country
I'm leaving town for post rock country
I'll find myself in post rock country

I'm heading west to the old quiet flatland
Out past the cities and their lights and people
No more noise just the plains and prairie
No more trees just the earth and post rock

I'm going to take a trip and head out nowhere
I'm going to go until the land looks familiar
I'll look around at the fences and pasture
I'll see the farmers and their limestone post rock

I'm going to a place that doesn't make sense
I'm going to a place that might not exist
I'm going to visit the Garden of Eden
I'm going to see the sins enshrined in stone
If I'm lucky I'll find the van with
The World's Largest Collection of the
World's Smallest Versions of the
World's Largest Things

Then I'll see if I can meet the makers
Find the house with the weird rock garden
See the rebarbs and dolls in the bathtub
Admire art made of circuitry and toys
Take a break in the fork statue park
Wander through a museum for eccentrics
Call it grassroots, call it outsider
This must be some wonderful anomaly

I'm going down to the Garden of Eden
I'm gonna get lost in an awesome artcar
I'm leaving town for a strange little haven
I'll find myself surrounded by weirdness
