I want to know what inspired Stephen Jenkins to write "The God of Wine" and what it means to him. Does anyone know of a book or website that would tell me? Thanks.

I doubt there is any book or website that has the meaning for that specific song.
I looked at the lyrics and my interpretation of it is: it is about an alcoholic and how boose ruins his life. It costs him everything, he even loses his girlfriend/wife because of his problem, but even after she is gone he keeps on drinking. There are also some Greek themes in the song I can't figure out. It talks about the god of wine (Dionysus), Zodiac signs, and Sirens from the Oddesy, (the sirens could also mean police sirens.)
If you really want a good interpretation take the lyrics to a teacher or professor who has a background in poetry interpritation.
