Morphine was formed in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States in 1990 by Mark Sandman (vocals, bass) and Dana Colley (saxophone). Jerome Dupree became the group's drummer in 1991 prior to the release of their debut album, Good. "Low Rock" is Morphine's unique combination of jazz, blues and pop/rock, sung with darkly comic and ironic lyrics. Their guitarless sound relied on an unusual combination of baritone/tenor sax, percussion and a two string slide bass.

- LyricsI hear a voice from the back of the room
I hear a voice cry out you want something good
Well, come on a little closer let me see your face
Yeah, come on a little closer by the front of the stage
I said come on a little closer I got something to say
- LyricsWhere is the ritual
And tell me where, where is the taste?
Where is the sacrifice
And tell me where, where is the faith?
Someday there'll be a cure for pain
- LyricsShe had black hair
Like ravens crawling over her shoulders
All the way down
She had a smile that swerved
She had a smile that curved
- LyricsCandy told me, "Nothing really matters anymore"
And when I ask her what she means she says, "I ought to know"
Candy said she's made arrangements for me in the sand
Candy said she wants me with her down in Candyland
Candy says she wonders, she wonders why we try
- LyricsI'm free now to direct a movie
Sing a song or write a book about yours truly
How I'm so interesting I'm so great
I'm really just a fuck-up and it's such a waste
To burn down these wall around me
