way up north
down the road a little
back in new england
right here in the middle
and all the way out west
we had our ears to the ground
all of our dreams resting in the same spot
listening for the old sound
it was ringing as clear as crystal
it was shining as bright as gold
grain gathering on the stone floor
and we were spring-heeled and we were real cold
all summer long
deep into autumn
in a high room
and down here in the bottom
down here in the bottom

    General CommentI don't really know what this sound is, that everyone everywhere is listening to, but...Jesus, it sounds so good.
    "we had our ears to the ground
    all of our dreams resting in the same spot"

    and I love

    "it was shining as bright as gold
    grain gathering on the stone floor
    and we were spring-heeled and we were real cold"
    (Spring-heeled typically means able to leap very high)

    General Commenti think its about drugs. you find a place, in this song its a mill. and you go back to that place all the time to get high. you watch the seasons change and your life passes you by. down here on the bottom
