"Talking to Sirens" as written by William David South, Brendon Arthur James, Thomas William George Welham and Adam Michael Wilson....
The sirens own the call
They call when you are gone
The sirens talk a lot
And I talk back, too

From the back of my head
To the back of my neck

And you must have come quickly
When you heard the sirens talk to me
And you know your way perfectly
And you have such rhythm in your feet

The battle's just begun
It's already been won
It feels like ecstasy
It feels much more to me

From the tip of my tongue
To the top of my lungs

And you must have come quickly
When you heard the sirens talk to me
And you know your way perfectly
And you have such rhythm in your feet

Always last when you've nothing to gain
Always won when you're the only one playing
Always last when you've nothing to gain
Always won when you're the only one playing

And you must have come quickly
When you heard the sirens talk to me
And you know your way perfectly
And you have such rhythm in your feet

    General CommentHow come no one has commented this one? It's great, using "sirens" as symbol of people you feel attracted to, in allusion to that legend of sirens leading sailors astray by singing.
    I think it's about someone who nearly fell in love with the "wrong" person, the "sirene", but then the right one "came quickly" and saved him. You can sense the confusion and euphoria of being in love in the melody. also it's all about admiring that person who knows his way "perfectly".
    Great song.

    General CommentThe sirens own the call = the sirens only call

    Always last when you've nothing to gain = Always lost when there's nothing to gain
