"Sirens of Titan" as written by and Alistair Ian Stewart....
I was drawn by the sirens of Titan
Carried along by their call
Seeking for a way to enlighten
Searching for the sense of it all

Like a kiss on the wind I was thrown to the stars
Captured and ordered in the army of Mars
Marching to the sound of the drum in my head
I followed the call

Only to be Malachi Constant
I thought I came to this earth
Living in the heart of the moment
With the riches I gained at my birth

But here in the yellow and blue of my days
I wander the endless Mercurian caves
Watching for the signs the Harmonians make
The words on the walls

I was drawn by the sirens of Titan
And so I came in the end
Under the shadow of Saturn
With statues and birds for my friends

Finding a home at the end of my days
Looking around I've only to say
I was the victim of a series of accidents
As are we allI was drawn by the sirens of Titan (as are we all)

As are we all
I was drawn by the sirens of Titan (as are we all)
As are we all...

    General Commentit is written "The Sirens of Titan" by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. a science-fiction book that Al Stewart found very addicting.

He came from Earth with his dog, Kazak was only able to fully materialize on Titan one of Saturn's moon and he befriends a robot that was supposed to deliver a message to another planet. Malachi Constant who has to escape from the wars and when he goes to titan he gets stranded with the robot. while Rumfoord goes to Earth.
