The Siren Lyrics
Playing to the seas
Hearken to the sound of calling
Who tied my hands to the wheel?
The Zodiac turns over me!
Come to me...
Somewhere there my fate revealed...
I hear but how will I see?
I tied myself to the wheel

This song is based off of Homer's "The Odyssey"
The Sirens were a creature that was half human, half bird that sang so wonderful, that men would be drawn to their voices sending them overboard and to their death.
Odysseyus had his men put wax in their ears and he told them to tie himself to the wheel. He also told them to not untie him when they went oast the island.
When they passed the Island of the Sirens, Odysseyus repeatedly told his crew to untie him so he could view The Sirens...But the crew denied his requests...
