about

The story of Icarus and Daedalus as told posthumously from Icarus' point of view.

lyrics

Set on my wings.
A man flies
until the wax melts.
Fell to my death.
A man’s depth
is not beautiful.
Send a message
if you care
for the body.
Fell to the sea,
the water
is not here for me.
Feathers and wax
won’t hold my limbs aloft.
Father,
what were you thinking?
Sing me
back to Athens.
When the echoes come
you’ll find me there.
Anoint my head
with the oil.
A man’s depth
Is not beautiful.
Feathers and wax
won’t hold my limbs aloft.
Father,
what were you thinking?
Feathers and wax
won’t hold my limbs aloft.
Father,
what were you thinking?
Feathers and wax
won’t hold my head aloft.
Father,
what was I thinking?
