"Albatross" as written by Keith Levene, John Wardle and John Lydon....
Slow motion, slow motion
Getting rid of the albatross
Sowing the seeds of discontent
I know you very well, you are unbearable
I've seen you up far too close
Getting rid of the albatross

Frying rear blinds
If I wanted
Should I really
If I run away, run away

Riding along on the crest of the wave
Getting rid of the albatross
Another will not forget
I know you very well

Run away, run away
Should I
I run away
Getting rid of the albatross
I know you very well, you are unbearable
I see you far too close
If I wanted to, if
Run away, run away
I ran away, I ran away

    General CommentIt's about the Sex Pistols and perhaps in effect, punk, which Lydon was very disillusioned with at the time. Getting rid of the unbearable albatross with slow motion "non music."
