​Daedalus

This song is by Thrice and appears on the album The Alchemy Index: Vols. III & IV - Air & Earth (2008).

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 the birds
So we leap from the cliff and we hear the wind sing
A song that's too perfect for words

But son, please keep a steady wing
You know you're 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
That we'll make the mainland by noon
But Icarus climbs higher still in the sky
And maybe I've spoken too soon

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

Won't you look at your wings?
They're coming undone, splitting at the seams
Steer clear of the sun
For once, won't you listen to me

Oh gods, why is this happening to me?
All I wanted was a new life for my son to grow up free
And now you took the only thing that meant anything to me
I will never fly again, I will hang up my wings

Oh gods, why is this happening to me?
All I wanted was a new life for my son to grow up free
And now you took the only thing that meant anything to me
I will never fly again, I will hang up my wings

Oh gods!
