"Sirens" as written by and Arto/scherer Lindsay....
It seems like this summer it's never ending,
Can you hear the hot wind blow,
It comes at the same time,
Every year.

And we stay out half the night to hide,
From sleeping in our homes,
Its the north wind.

Here come the sirens, hear them roar.
Here come the sirens, hear them roar.
Here come the sirens, hear them roar,
Once more.

I lay back in the room with dark red curtains,
Wake up to the trucks outside my door,
Short of sleep.
And the sky tonight it's a deadly one,
It hardly lets us breath,
Like Ash Wednesday.

Here come the sirens, hear them roar.
Here come the sirens, hear them roar.
Here come the sirens, hear them roar,
Once more.

And when it's hot I like the fast songs,
When I'm tired and I can't sleep,
Play them slow, way down.

Here come the sirens, hear them roar.
Here come the sirens, hear them roar.
Here come the sirens, hear them roar,
Once more.

Here come the sirens, hear them roar.
Here come the sirens, hear them roar.
Here come the sirens, hear them roar,
Once more.

    General CommentI think the correct title of this song is "Here Come The Sirens".

    That aside, this has to be one of the most amazing, tranquil, mysterious and eerie songs I have ever heard, and one of my all time favorites.

    Coming from an Australian band, I feel this song tells the story of a long, sweltering summer's day; the kind of day where you can't move or leave the house or even think for the heat, the kind of day where the cicadas are droning in the background, and the world disappears into a shimmering mirage on the horizon. The "sirens" are the sirens of fire-engines somewhere off in the distance (which are also the "trucks outside" his door), while the singer looks up into the "deadly" night sky, all aglow as the fires reflecting off the smoke, "like ash Wednesday" (one of the worst fires in Australia's history).

    Absolutely spectacular and haunting song.

    General CommentHaunting... all the possibilities that summer holds restrained by our fears and the ever present threat of bushfires... if there is a greater summer song I haven't heard it.
