A lot of people call me a nut
I'm unfortunately quick with a pun
Obviously I'm not a literal nut
Though I'll entertain you on that one

So how close would you have to look
To find where the world ends and the nut begins?
The answer isn't good enough in any book
You won't believe how hard that's been

When does the almond stop being part of its shell?

I sat down last night
And pictured what it'd be like
If I were an almond

Now's the part where I tell you to eat me
You can take your pick of which figurative way
Obviously I'm not a literal nut
So I must mean something with what I'm gonna say

Mildly sweet and delicious
Clearly I'm a superfood
But good luck getting me out of my shell
Time for a musical interlude

When does a song stop being part of itself?

I sat down last night
And pictured what it'd be like
If I were an almond

I'd like to think I still haven't been cracked
Stately alone there on that table
I realized that's me in a nutshell
And as to conclusion reaching I wasn't able

At what point does a song come out of its shell?

I sat down last night
And pictured what it'd be like
If I were an almond

I sat down last night
And pictured what it'd be like
If I were an almond
