Beck – Country Down Lyrics

Oh country down
Where I found my proving ground1
All along the floodline
Wheels are turning around
The hills roll out like centuries2
Pass by without a sound
Just a mile outside of town3

Down-river bound
Where the lemon-tea-sky fell down4
A plot against your will
Is furrowed into your brow
Against your better judgment
It’s all behind you now5
Just a mile outside of town

What’s the use
Of being found?6
You can lose yourself
In some good ground7
In the weeds8 hiding
Down the river right next door
There’s no frame around your picture
Just a view through my back door9

Time evermore
You just found what you’re looking for10
A tiger rose
Growing through your prison door
Reaching for sunlight11
Can’t see it anymore
Just a mile from my back door12

You could wake up on a lifeboat ‘neath the sun
On a ladder up to the sky
You’re standing on the lowest rung
Holding a lifeline13
Using my best defense
Running in the undertow
I couldn’t fight against14

Oh lay me down15
Where we found my proving ground
All along the floodline
Waves16 are turning around
The hills roll out like centuries
Pass by without a sound
Just a mile outside of town17
