Balance
The Mountain Goats Lyrics


Two tall glasses of sweet iced 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
But not too far gone to care

The Chunky Trucker

This is a great song. I have to learn it for this upcoming band concert I have for my school, and being that there's no sheet music I gotta learn it by ear. I really don't ins listening to this song over and over.

I came here because of Joseph Fink

I tried listening to this album once. I'm glad Fink's new podcast is giving me a reason to listen again.

(I'm guessing you're not from the podcast though?)
