Two tall glasses of sweet ice tea
Underneath the sweet gum tree
And the love we once nurtured
You and me
Disintegrating violently
Stick your tongue out
Catch the pieces as they drift down the air
I am
Too slow to catch them all
Not too far gone to care

Two slow summer hours
Spent picking at the bones
Figuring the interest on delinquent loans
Speaking in sad and mournful tones
Trying to squeeze tears out of
Mute stones
Wet your finger
Place it toward the wind
Feel disaster in the air
We are far too slow to outrun it now
Not too far gone to care

    General CommentI think this song is about the Alpha couple and how their relationship got bad and they became alcoholics after they got all that money in Las Vegas.

    General CommentIt's the first song I learned and was able to play on guitar cause it is fairly simple and ooohhhhhh sooooo beautiful. It fit my life perfectly and it will always have a soft spot for me.

    My OpinionI'm pretty sure this song is the return of the couple from Jenny and Fault Lines
