Icarus

falling away from the sun

the clouds fly by as the air leaves my lungs

and yes this is all my own doing

I’d give in to decay if perfection is won

too much ambition is fatal

shuffling doesn’t change what’s on the table

I’ve learned you can give all you’ve got

but fate shows no mercy on those who aren’t able

if you feed the beast, it feeds on you

but starve it out, and you’ll starve too

so pick your poison in which to drown

decide your fate but don’t turn around

no you can’t be king with half a crown

these wings of wax won’t hold me long

I’ll be gravity’s chosen one

and you’ll see my folly for what it was

don’t fly too close to that tempting sun

oh I’m falling, I’m falling, I’m falling, I’m falling now

oh I’m falling, I’m falling, I’m falling, I’m falling now

but if you feed the beast, it feeds on you

but starve it out, and you’ll starve too

so pick your poison in which to drown

decide your fate but don’t turn around

no you can’t be king with half a crown

no you can’t be king with half a crown
