Overhead the Albatros Hangs Motionless Upon The Air

Roger Waters
Richard Wright
Nick Mason
David Gilmour

Overhead the albatros hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.
And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the wheres or whys
And something stirs and something tries
And starts to climb towards the light.
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
and lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can.
And no one calls us to move on
And no one forces down our eyes
And no one speaks
And no one tries and no one flies around the sun.
Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Comes streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning.
And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the skies.
