Come to our arms simple sailors

Come to our arms simple sailors
Nothing to fear on our reef
The waves that appear as our gaolers
Are certain to save you from grief

We sing on our rocks to you sailors
And call you to come to our arms
We don’t need escape from our gaolers
Our victims will fall for our charms

A promise of love to all sailors
Is all that our song seems to say
We cannot escape from our gaolers
But sailors are welcome to stay

The truth never heard by the sailors
Is hidden in beauty of song
We lure them to death by our gaolers
Our curse we can only do wrong

Feeling a little out-gunned here, but I am not in a mood to write serious stuff.
