Icarus Lyrics

Icarus you must have watched the skies
Over a thousand times
Icarus why still expose your eyes
To what they'll never see
Can never be
You won't get a better deal
Icarus these wings are not for real

Was it me who said you'd never fall
If you could read the signs
Icarus, I don't remember all
These words- now meant to be
Disarming me
So there's only one way out
Even though you'll never learn to live without

We've got no control, we're part of the
Lost in a maze and looking for answers
The gods play their game, concealing their hand
Building a strategy, taking their chances

They show you their schemes of promise and hope
Then they break down your dreams and hand you the rope

These are the lines, such are the rules
Stick to the road that you've gotta follow
Don't me misled by jokers and fools
Their image is false and their prophesy's hollow

They poisoned the rains
Polluted the sky
Now they lock you in chains
And tell you to fly

Icarus you have observed the stars
Untill daylight dawned
Oh Icarus if we could reach as far
As half the universe
Free as birds

But you won't make it on your own
No one safely makes that journey all alone

It's a perfect world - but confusing my soul
There's no escape and no prospect of winning
Surrounded by walls - entrapped in a
Where head is tail and the end's the beginning

They lie and they cheat
Deny what you know
Only driven by greed
When you least expect it they deal you the final blow

Things can not be changed
Life can't be undone
You will fly too close to the sun
And you lose it all
You're bound to fall again

Icarus - you must have watched the skies
Over a thousand times
Icarus why still expose your eyes
To what they'll never see
Can never be
Now you found the one way out
Can you tell me what it's really all about

Things can not be changed
Life can't be undone
You will fly too close to the sun
Like you did before
So will many more
Do in times to come

Icarus this game simply can't be won...
