"The Siren Song"
by Margaret Atwood

"Shall I tell you the secret
and if I do, will you get me
out of this bird suit?

I don't enjoy it here
squatting on this island
looking picturesque and mythical"

"This song is a cry for help: Help me!
Only you, only you can,
you are unique

at last. Alas
it is a boring song
but it works every time."

"Home at Last"
Steely Dan
"Well the danger on the rocks is surely past,
still I remain tied to the mast.
Could it be that I have found my home at last home at last."
"She serves the smooth retsina
She keeps me safe and warm.
It's just the calm before the storm."

"Calypso" John Denver
"To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean,
to ride on the crest of the wild raging storm.
To work in the service of life and the living,
in search of the answers to questions unknown.
To be part of the movement and part of the growing,
part of beginning to understand.
Aye, Calypso, the places you've been to,
the things that you've shown us, the stories you tell.
Aye, Calypso, I sing to your spirit, the men who have served you so long and so well."
"Love & War & The Sea in Between" Josh Garrels
"I'm sailing home to you I won't be long,
And by the light moon I will press on.
Until I find, my love.
Trouble has beset my ways and wicked winds have blown,
Sirens call my name, they say they'll ease my pain, then break me on the stones.
But true love is the burden that will carry me back home." -Ulysses
