... And so they sing one thing and mean another. ...

... to make our Angelinia a free and peaceful land again ...


And you sang, "Sail to me
Sail to me, let me enfold you"
Here I am, here I am
Waiting to hold you.

Tim Buckley and Larry Beckett
Song to the Siren

[covered by
This Mortal Coil


A blue muscle from the moon
pulls our ship toward a sheaf of rock
where they lie. They are as naked
as scissors and sing with the same
promise of release. Their red songs
rise around us like flamingos. ...
