The Dam At Otter Creek
Live Lyrics


When all that's left to do
Is reflect on what's been done
This is where sadness breaths
The sadness of everyone

Just like when the guys built the
Dam at otter creek and all the
Water backed up
Deep enough to dive
We took the dead man in sheets
To the river flanked by love
Deep enough to dive
Deep enough to dive

Be here now
We took him there and three
In a stretcher made from trees
That had passed in the storm

Leave the hearse behind
To leave the curse
Be here now

This is song starts with some sounds barely there
Then the guitar leads you in
And Passionate vocals
And lyrics about death - It is about cremation near a river 'dead man in sheets'
about life- be here now
then the baseline hits
immediately hollowed by the occassional drum
while the voice soars into leaving the curse behind
and the drums start a beat
and get faster
while passion in the voice follows the quickening.
And climaxing
back in to fading guitars

This is a masterpiece - which for those of us who bought the cd when it first came out casually started the CD and stunned us,
And every song that followed just kept us just as engrossed.

Please point me to someone creating such stuff today.
Please

When all that's left to do is reflect on what's been done
This is where sadness breathes, the sadness of everyone
Just like when the guys built the Dam at Otter Creek and all the water backed up
Deep enough to dive
We took the dead man in sheets to the river flanked by love
Deep enough to dive
Deep enough to dive
Be here now, be here now, be here now, be here now

I saw the guys who built the Dam at Otter Creek and all the water backed up, backed up, backed up
Deep enough to dive

We took him free and a three in a stretcher made from trees that had passed in the storm
Leave the hearse behind, to leave the curse behind
Be here now, be here now, be here now, be here now, be here now
We took the dead man in sheets to the river flanked by love
We took the dead man in sheets to the river flanked by love
Be here now, be here now, be here now, be here now, be here
We took the dead man in sheets to the river flanked by love
We took the dead man in sheets to the river flanked by love
Flanked by love, flanked by love, flanked by love, by love, love, by love, love
Right, take it off, take it off, take it home, Miss Marple, take him on, Phillip, please, so

Lyrics

When all that's left to do
Is reflect on what's been done
This is where sadness breathes,
The sadness of everyone
Just like when the guys
Built the Dam at Otter Creek
And all the water backed up
Deep enough to dive
Oh
We took the dead man in sheets
To the river flanked by love
Deep enough to dive
Deep enough to dive
Be here now, be here now,
Be here now, be here now

I saw the guys who built the Dam at Otter Creek
And all the water backed up,
Backed up, backed up
Deep enough to dive
Yeah

We took him free and a three in a stretcher
Made from trees that had passed in the storm
Leave the hearse behind,
To leave the curse behind

Be here now, be here now,
Be here now, be here now,
Be here now

We took the dead man in sheets
To the river flanked by love
We took the dead man in sheets
To the river flanked by love
Be here now, be here now,
Be here now, be here now,
Be here
We took the dead man in sheets
To the river flanked by love
We took the dead man in sheets
To the river flanked by love
Flanked by love, flanked by love,
Flanked by love, by love, love,
By love, love
Right, take it off, take it off, take it home,
Miss Marple, take him on, Phillip, please, so

This is where sadness breaths 
The sadness of everyone

Just like when the guys built the

Water backed up 
Deep enough to dive

We took the dead man in sheets 
To the river flanked by love 
Deep enough to dive 
Deep enough to dive

Be here now 
We took him there and three 
In a stretcher made from trees 
That had passed in the storm

Leave the hearse behind 
To leave the curse 
Be here now

It's not a stretch to say this was one of the greatest albums ever, not just in the 90's but in any era. Throwing Copper is flawless.

Sons of the West Red, White & Blue

I was 18 when came out. Trashed the guts out of it.

Kevin Smith

I agree

bossanova

I don't think there was a single bad song on Throwing Copper. I almost forgot just how good Live was at one point. 

Shaun Armstrong

I saw Live live. They blew my brains out.

Television Mouth

Yeah they were I really love Mental Jewelry and Secret Samadhi are great album but Throwing Copper is my all time favorite album from the 90s I can’t think of one bad song or mediocre only wish that Top and Waitress were a bit longer

ChumleyChumchizer

My opinion, this is one the last great rock concept albums. It was designed to be consumed from start to finish. Not in bits.
