don’t fall asleep at the helm
I lost my heart, my home is the ocean.
The waves underneath will soon be my home.
I will fall asleep.
I'll close my eyes and dream of days when I wasn't all alone.

All that I know is gone
(Take what is left of me now)
All that I know is gone
(Take what is left of me)
Fall deeper and deeper, the sirens are singing your songs.

I'll miss my breath, there's no more left.
I'll miss the sound of the wind at my back.
The depths have a number, they call you by name.
Fall asleep, Davy Jones calls you.
So fall asleep, fall asleep and dream.

All that I know is gone
(Take what is left of me now)
All that I know is gone
(Take what is left of me)
Fall deeper and deeper, the sirens are singing your songs.

~Sleeping with Sirens~

Two months ago, sailors from the King’s royal fleet have been disappearing, said to be pulled off of the side of the boat by beautiful woman dressed with nothing but their voices and scaly tails instead of legs. Few who heard their enchanting voices lived to tell the tale, but those who did have unbelievable need to return to the ocean to their awaiting maidens.

Only days before, a sailor on the King’s most reliable ship managed to catch one of these creatures and, keeping it in a glass coffin-like container, bring it back to show her to the King himself. Baffled by her beauty and singing ability, the King ordered the ship back out to see to investigate exactly what these creatures were.

They were to use the captured creature as bait for her sisters.

But little did the King know, he had two forces working against him. First off, the captured creature was Princess of her kind. Because of her capture, her kind have started preparing for battle. Second, the sailor who had captured the creature was already under her spell, blinded by her beauty, dragging his companions towards their doom.

The morning before the ship set off, the King named the creatures Sirens after the Greek monsters who dragged sailors to their deaths, drowning them.

Be careful, brethren.
The Sirens are singing.
