Lyrics:

When all there'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
Oh, be here now
Oh, be here now
Oh, be here now
Oh, be here now
Just like when the guys built the dam at Otter Creek
And water backed up, backed up, backed up deep enough to dive
Yeah, hey-ah, hey-ah
We took him three and three
In a stretcher made from trees that had passed in the storm
Leave the hearse behind to leave a curse behind
Oh, be here now
Oh, be here now
Oh, be here now
Oh, be here now, yeah
Oh, 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 in glory
Oh, be here now
Oh, be here now
Oh, be here now, yeah
Oh, be here now, yeah
Oh, be here
We took the dead man in sheets to the river
Flanked by the river, flanked by the river, by love
Flanked by love
Flanked by glory, yeah
Flanked by glory, yeah

Latest reviews

The Dam at Otter Creek is a great song, definitely a good introduction but not Live's best work.
The slow start allows the listener to get eased into the album, and when it finally picks up speed at around the three-minute mark, it elevates the chorus very nicely. Though it is very good and highlights a lot of Live's skills, like the pacing shifts, it doesn't necessarily live up to their greatest hits. In my opinion, a lot of the song is a little too shouty, and while the lyrics are interesting, they don't have the same depth and variation that many of the other songs on the album do. Overall, definitely quality but doesn't reach the same heights as some of their others, though I could see why some would rate it higher.
