lyrics

Once you hear the siren’s song
It’ll haunt you all night long
Go that way you’re bound to pay your toll
It’s the devil in disguise
And every time you tell your lies
It takes a few more pieces of your soul

I’m not a sinner
As it goes, I’m no saint
I sleep through the winter
Lie in wait until the rain dries
The fatal flaw
Within us all
We try to tame fire
Light me up and let me go
The way they tell it
You’d forget it’s never all bad
Just don’t expect for them to catch you
When you fall back
It’s awful late
You think you’ll make it through the tall grass?
Set me up and let me go

Might be a dreamer
As it goes, I’m not alone so
I know recourse
Is never more
Than just a stones throw
You want enlightenment
Start lightenin’ your own load
Pull the pin and let me go
When dogs are sleepin’
You’d do best to let ‘em lie now
Don’t be compelled
To delve in wells
Already dried out
You want direction
Start by gettin’ off of my cloud
Cut me loose and let me go

It’s all a prison
As it goes, I’m on the outside
The crystal walls
I long to leap
They keep me bound tight
You bate your breath
Or better yet
I’ll take it outright
I paid my debt so let me go
Your footing’s weak
You put your teeth
Before your tongue now
They gave you rope enough
They’d hoped you’d never come down
The hours east
As shadows creep
Across the sundial
Steal a kiss and let me go

The sirens sing a song that’ll put you to a true test
Can’t you see it’s just the devil in a blue dress
Wolf comin’ with her sheep clothes on
But she don’t mean to keep those on
