Sirens Of Titan

Album: Modern Times (1975)
  • 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... Writer/s: ALISTAIR IAN STEWART
