If the album is called "Siren," it would be a little spooky. I was on the bus last night going home from work and "In God's Country" came up. I hadn't heard it in a while and was thinking to myself how even though I can't seem to remember what I ate for dinner the night before, I can sing along in my head to songs I haven't heard in years. I had a similar experience last week when listening to "The End" by The Doors. I probably hadn't heard that song all the way through in over a decade, but I could easily remember every line.
Anywho -- in the part of "In God's Country" I found myself fixating on the "like a siren she calls to me," line. I remember thinking when I was in high school, I thought of the word siren in that song as a police siren, or something of that nature -- a sort of warning. But now, I looked at it as a mythological siren, calling Bono to crash into something, or something ominous like that. I remember thinking of that word last night and thinking how it's funny your views change with time and had a private moment of the beauty of language and words and meanings.
Siren would be a great title for a U2 album, filled what that standard Bono ambiguity. It could mean an alarm, a warning, or a "siren who calls to him." I'd dig it, if it was true, which who knows if it is.
