Lost Brave Saint Saturn Lyrics

While searching for the lyrics to "Daylight" for the previous post, I ran across two songs listed as Brave Saint Saturn lyrics which aren't on either of their albums. I'm prety sure that Reese wrote them, so they must have just been cut from one of the albums and just happened to make it onto the internet. Here they are:

Albatross
Around my neck there is an albatross.
Some people think it looks, looks like a cross,
But it's not, it's - well it's an albatross.
There to remind me of who I'll never be, never be, never be.

Hung around my neck with pride,
This piece of wood where Jesus died.
I know I'll never be like You,
But, God, I want to try.

Around my neck there is an albatross.
Some people think it looks, looks like a cross,
But it's not, it's - well, it's an albatross.
There to remind me of who I'll never be, never be, never be.

The Sound
If I only had an ocean to compliment this sky
I'd pull it down, I'd paint it for you and never question why
Cause red would mean you love me
And blue would mean you care
And black my heart were left to those with cold uncaring stares
This is the burning of a dream
This is the burning of a dream

The sound now turns to silence
But I keep spinning around
Naked in the rain of my own tears
As they fall into the bucket of your apologies
And i'm closing everyone else's eyes
Because you rowed ashore
Not to see the volume rise again

Feels like i'm waiting in the last hiding place on earth
Hang this noose around my neck but i'm saved
For one hundred thousand memories wash ashore
Be swept away by forever
Sail away from you
Now the rain has ended
So the sun can shine through me

The sound now turns to silence
But I keep spinning around
Naked in the rain of my own tears
As they fall into the bucket of your apologies
And i'm closing everyone else's eyes
Because you rowed ashore
Not to see the volume rise again

Only you could row my boat ashore
And only you could set my fears at rest
Couldn't see the lack of sympathies regress
I'm still waiting
I'm still waiting for your grace

The sound now turns to silence
But I keep spinning around
Naked in the rain of my own tears
As they fall into the bucket of your apologies
And i'm closing everyone else's eyes
Because you rowed ashore
Not to see the volume rise again
