The Siren’s Call

She hears her ocean call
It echoes in her shell-like ears
And she casts one more glance at me
And casts herself into the sea
She’s in Poseidon’s thrall
His rolling waves engulf the tears
She’s weeping as she sings to me
And pulls me down into the sea

She comes for me each night
Down on the lonely shore
One of Triton’s daughters
She tastes of salty water
She sings and I can’t fight
I can’t resist her anymore
The siren sings her pretty song
To me, tonight but not for long

Once in her arms I find in tentacles I am entwined
Sinking down, down below, to fathom where the dead men go
The Captain surrenders, the crew will all fall
One by one to the sound of the siren’s call

There’s seaweed in her hair
Her skin is cold and blue
She’s singing underwater
The song the devil taught her
For her, a mere affair,
I’ll be forever true
She’s all I want, complete
Her lips are cold and sweet

She drags me down so deep
To realms of the Leviathan
To dark forbidden mysteries
That lie in wait beneath the sea
And this is where I’ll sleep
far from any sight of land
With one long kiss goodnight
She slowly rises to the light.

I hope she doesn’t weep for me, it’s really not too deep for me
I’ve simply traded light and air for one night in her watery lair…
The Captain surrenders, the crew will all fall
One by one to the sound of the siren’s call
