Daedalus

Album: The Alchemy Index Volume III (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • Following up on their song "The Melting Point of Wax," this tells the story of The Flight of Icarus from Icarus' father's perspective (Daedalus). Icarus built wings made of wax and feathers, but not heeding his father's advice, he flew too close to the sun and his wings melted. The speaker is Daedalus, who hopes for Icarus to live a better life, and the sorrow involved when Icarus falls to his death. >>
