"Siren" as written by and Christoph/betkierowicz Krause....
Haste not thine wisdom, for the hollow is ta'en -
By whom, know I not; 'lack! am I of twain -
And as a crux - cede I my words -
Fro my heart wilt thou ne'er
Have I been 'sooth sinsyne.
Be left without - come!

Thine voice is oh so sweet, I speer thine pine,
Ryking for me:
Ryking for thee;
"List and heed", thou say'st
Wistful, whistful -
Chancing to lure.
Chancing to lure,
Skirl and skreigh, but for thine ears, aye, lown 'tis -
Dodge na 'way herefro, do come here in eath!

Mayhap lured by the scent of lote -
'Od! - the foetid - eft hie back I mote;
For what I did my soul atrounced,
How I wish for thee again,
O! do believe me, 'twasn't a frounce.
Will I give thee it: Troth.

Thine voice is oh so sweet, I speer thine pine,
Ryking for me:
Ryking for thee;
"List and heed", thou say'st
Wistful, whistful -
Chancing to lure.
Chancing to lure,
Skirl and skreigh, but for thine ears, aye, lown 'tis -
Dodge na 'way herefro, do come here in eath!

    General CommentOkay, so here's what I've translated the lyrics to mean, based on what I understood, and what I looked up. It was kind of elusive, since half of it is in Old English... but I think I've gotten at least kind of close.
    If you want the short version, the song is a Siren's song, which the legends talk about a Siren singing to lure someone who will be ultimately led to his grave.

    Here's my translation--
    Do not rush your thinking For the hollow is taken (I don't understand the second part's context...)
    I do not know who took it alack, I am of Twain (again, context, but twain refers to one of a pair)
    As the heart, I surrender to my words (Crux, reffering ot the essential part or core of something, and cede, meaning surrender to)
    *From my heart you will never
    I have been, since that time (Synsine meaning since that time)
    *Be left alone-- come!
    *Your voice is oh so sweet
    I steal your affection
    *Calling for me (Okay, so I couldn't find the definition of Ryking, but that's what I gathered from context)
    Calling for you
    *Listen, and heed, you say
    wistful, wistful (in a longing or melancholy way)
    *Chancing to lure
    Chancing to lure
    Skirl and Skreigh (to emit a high, shrill tone or to play music. I'm going to go with high pitched music) But this song is for your ears alone
    Do not run away, but come here
    Perhaps, lured by the scent of lote (lote is a hardwood tree)
    (Okay.... This line I had the hardest time with... All I could find was that foetid meant having foul odor and hie means to hasten or quicken.
    What I did was my soul's calling
    *How I wish for you again
    Oh, do believe me, it wasn't a trick
    *Will I give you troth (a pledge, that they'll always be true. Think betrothal)
    *Your voice is oh so sweet
    I steal your affection
    *Calling for me (Okay, so I couldn't find the definition of Ryking, but that's what I gathered from context)
    Calling for you
    *Listen, and heed, you say
    wistful, wistful (in a longing or melancholy way)
    *Chancing to lure
    Chancing to lure
    Skirl and Skreigh (to emit a high, shrill tone or to play music. I'm going to go with high pitched music) But this song is for your ears alone
    Do not run away, but come here
