Daedalus

Album: The Alchemy Index Volume III (2006)
  • I stand on the cliffs with my son next to me
    This island our prison, our home
    And everyday we look out at the sea
    This place is all he's ever known

    But I've got a plan, and some
    Wax and some string, some feathers I stole from a bird
    We leap from the cliff and we hear the wind sing a song thats too perfect for words

    But son, please keep a steady wing
    And know your the only one that means anything to me
    Steer clear of the sun, or you'll find yourself in the sea

    Now safely away, I let out a cry
    We'll make the mainland by noon
    But Icarus climbs higher still in the sky
    Maybe I've spoken too soon

    But son, please keep a steady wing
    And know your the only one that means anything to me
    Steer clear of the sun, or you'll find yourself in the sea

    Wont you look at your wings
    They're coming undone
    They're splitting at the seams
    Steer clear of the sun, for once wont you listen to me?

    Oh God!
    Why is this happening to me?
    All I wanted was new life for my son to grow up free
    And now you took the only thing that meant anything to me
    I'll never fly again, I'll hang up my wings
    Oh God!
    Why is this happening to me?
    All I wanted was new life for my son to grow up free
    And now you took the only thing that meant anything to me
    I'll never fly again, I'll hang up my wings
    Oh God! Writer/s: DUSTIN MICHAEL KENSRUE, EDWARD CARRINGTON BRECKENRIDGE, JAMES RILEY BRECKENRIDGE, TEPPEI TERANISHI
