Albatross (3:13)

Cover of Smother

From Smother and 2 other releases

The Albatross Songfacts says: Lyrically, the song alludes to Coleridge’s classic symbol of guilt in his poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With guilt comes blame and self-flagellation as Hayden Thorpe croons regretfully, “the secrets that I should have shared.”
