Siren's Song

from by The Dread Crew of Oddwood

lyrics

Lost their way and drifting at sea
As time and life had ceased to be
The lust for more, forevermore
Held this crew’s hope of reaching shore

Off the bow a thick fog crept
While tightening, empty stomachs wept
For nowhere else, was land in sight
To sail on or sail blind

Fighting just to stay awake
As tired bones began to quake
But surely as their lives were through
Winsome voices called this crew

Release your strength and come to me
No need for hope, now you are free
Let these words compel your heart
All pain and sorrow will depart

Their song had cast an enticing allure
Rendering all their judgment obscure
Into the mist the vessel turned
For safety no one was concerned

Splintered masts and shattered hulls
Unseen by sunken eyes in skulls
Mocked them from the hungry rocks
for they would never reach the docks

Striking hard against the reef
The crew would soon find relief
Oblivious to untold doom
And what the voices would consume

Release your strength and come to me
No need for hope, now you are free
Let these words compel your heart
All pain and sorrow will depart

When ageless beauty seeped aboard
No one cared to raise their sword
Glistening, naked bodies swarmed
And soon the feast began

Lungs were punctured, faces gored
Flesh was eaten, blood was poured
Hungry, feral voices roared
This hopeless voyage now at an end

Release your strength and come to me
No need for hope, now you are free
Let these words compel your heart
All pain and sorrow will depart

Dead men have no tales to tell
With your death our stomachs swell
There’s no warning to this fate
Once you hear our song it’s too late
