lyrics

Can you hear them siren songs?
It’ll make you crazy ‘fore too long
Make sure there are solid battle lines
Or you might not come out of this alive

Can you hear them creatures’ sing?
Voices smooth as silk and sheen
Sad songs of bittersweet melodies
While they touch your heart and
sweep you off your feet


They are beautifully enchanting
(and) can captivate the throngs
They won’t waste another breath
before it’s sung them siren songs


Met a girl from Fredericksburg
Who played guitar and sang her words
She could kill you with a look
From the stage she planned and schemed
and carved her hooks


She was married far too early
And won’t will them off at bay
She could sleep with every
guy she tranquilized by her Siren songs


I’m not waiting for a sign
To windup in your cross-hair lines
Are you a new age femme fatale?
In your “meadow starred with flowers” and sunken sails


You were minions for a maiden
And were given wings of gold
You won’t waste another day before you’ll know
You are beautifully enchanting
And are truthful more than wrong
You won’t waste another breath before you’ve sung
Your siren song
