Sturgill Simpson “Brace For Impact (Live A Little)” Lyrics

One day you wake up
And this life will be over
Every party must break up
For burdens to shoulder
We’re dying to live
Living to die
No matter what you believe
And all of us cry
For the ones we must leave

So go and live a little
Bone turns brittle
And skin withers before your eyes
Make sure you give a little
Before you go to the great unknown in the sky

Some will beg for forgiveness
From someone above
For something they did
To someone they love
Some scream like a baby
Some go out crying
Some bid the world goodbye
And welcome to die

Go out and live a little
Bone turns brittle
And skin withers before your eyes
Make sure you give a little
Before you go to the great unknown in the sky

Alternative country musician Sturgill Simpson has shared an official music video for a new song titled “Brace For Impact (Live A Little).” The track is from Sturgill’s upcoming album, A Sailor’s Guide To Earth. Watch it above via YouTube, and check out his interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe below:

Created by Matt Mahurin, the video features Sturgill performing the song while an animated sequence is shown to accompany the song’s lyrics.

Sturgill has pushed the envelope when it comes to songwriting and production in country music, and “Brace For Impact (Live A Little)” is another example of his experimental nature. Steady drums and thick bass lay down a solid groove, while slide guitar mastery and warm keys give way to psychedelic sound effects towards the end. If Merle Haggard had been in Pink Floyd instead of Gilmour, this may have been the sound they would have created.

Since his critically acclaimed 2014 album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, Simpson hasn’t released much new music. Last month, a new song of his called “Sugar Daddy” was unveiled as the theme song to the HBO series Vinyl. “Brace For Impact” is the first taste we’ve heard from his upcoming 2016 album.

A Sailor’s Guide To Earth will be released on April 15, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon.

Just last week, Simpson also announced a bunch of tour dates for 2016. For the latest music, news, and tour dates from Sturgill Simpson, check out his Zumic artist page.
