There's a weakness, in the window
I place my footprints, in the dark room
There's lonely voices, like a scarecrow
In the hallway, like a lost ghost
In the bedroom, I see a shadow
From the moon with light from a candle
On a bed frame, lies a girl
Her reflection, in the mirror

Ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
I like your eyes wide
Ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
Been knocking at your backdoor
Ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
nervous like a knife fight
Ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
Be careful what you ask for

I do this from time to time
Where I can never wake from a bad dream (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
When I can never say the things I mean (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I like to watch you as you sleep (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I like to think of you with me

It's a dark night, on the West Coast
Then a soft breeze, as the sun rose
Then the phone rang, like a gunshot
Like a siren, on the beach rock
There's a message, at the river
A certain package here to deliver
When the day breaks, after nightfall
I will be there, you know I will

Ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
I like your eyes wide
Ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
I'm knocking at your backdoor
Ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
nervous like a knife fight
Ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
Be careful what you ask for

I do this from time to time
Where I can never wake from a bad dream (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
When I can never say the things I mean (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I like to watch you as you sleep (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I like to think of you and me
(From time to time)

I can hear you breathe,
I'm feeling the shake
And the sound of my heartbeat
Can't let go...
Do you know?
I'm feeling the pain
Of my first love
I won't let it go... Can't let go

I do this from time to time
Where I can never wake from a bad dream (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I can never say the things I mean (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I like to watch you as you sleep (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I like to taste you as you bleed (from time to time)

I do this from time to time
Where I can never wake from a bad dream (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I can never say the things I mean (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I like to watch you as you sleep (from time to time)
I do this from time to time
Where I like to think of you and me
(From time to time)

    This song is clearly not about murder...it's clearly a song about love. Tom even says "I'm feeling the pain of my first love" which here is to be taken literally. He can't get over the fact that he still feels the way he always has, but she doesn't feel the same way he does. The watching her while she sleeps thing is not meant in a creepy way at all, just an expression of how much he loves her. He's nervous, and can't find a way to tell her what he means or how he feels. "Be careful what you ask for" is a warning to himself to be careful how deeply he gets into this sort of love/obsession with something he can't have. And a final side note, the line that says "like a siren on the beach rock" is obviously a reference to the sirens of mythology and their seductive powers, while they care nothing for those they lure in.

    Tom is in love with a woman who he feels he has no chance with. The woman becomes lonely and depressed and tom is there for her, but unlike her, he looks at her and is in love. He tries to casually tell her his emotions but cannot say the right thing. He also tries to conquer his love for her but can't.

    It's about how tom got arrested for being drunk in public he heard sirens and there was a cross dresser in his jail cell

    Siren's is about how tom feels about a person who is like a siren on the water, they lure him in with a beautiful song.
