“Overhead the albatross hangs motionless up on 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”

* Please excuse the audio quality. The interview was recorded amid a backdrop of noise. I did the best I could do to bring the quality to the utmost.
