Subject: RE: Songwriting 101
Sirens got a bad rap! I wanted to get across the idea of a compelling call from afar. Nobody dies in the song. The moth and flame one is probably worse. (Crackle - poof!) Moths aren't really drawn to flames anyway - I believe they're drawn to electric lights because the frequency makes the lights pulse, and the moths think they're navigating in between divided bits of moonlight and go into the light instead of through it sideways. Or something like that, but I digress...
