Starset – Icarus

Icarus

[Verse 1]
Fell out of the air and you broke your wings
Like you do it every other time
Made a new pair out of broken things
To give it all another try
And you climb right up to the highest peaks
And reach up to the edge of the world you seek
Afraid of heights or you don't believe
You could ever be good enough

[Chorus]
Go on then Icarus, take your turn
You always fly right up until it burns
Your wings you never could change, always the victim
Into the flames again
Go on then Icarus, take your turn
You'll never go through them

Head in the clouds
Buried your feet in the ground
Telling yourself it's the world that holds you down
But you got your chin held high
And your chest pumped up
The replica of a [?]
You were made for skies but you called bluff
Thought you'd never be good enough

[Chorus]
Go on then Icarus, take your turn
You always fly right up until it burns
Your wings you never could change, always the victim
Into the flames again
Go on then Icarus, take your turn
You'll never go through them

[Post-Chorus]
You'll never know through them
You'll never know through them

[Bridge]
Torn back down, back down again
You've got your heads in the clouds, on the ground again
Looking for a scapegoat to hold your feat
Pounding on your chest so you don't feel weak
You fall back down, back down again

[Chorus]
Go on then Icarus, take your turn
You always fly right up until it burns
Your wings you never could change, always the victim
Into the flames again
Go on then Icarus, take your turn
You'll never go through them
