Icarus

Don’t we all hate the kings that have imprisoned us?
All the rules we can’t refuse until we call their bluff
Eighteen years and you’re almost free, just shy of the finish line
Then you go and show your family promises are made of lies

They love you, far too much, to ever let you go
But I see, a sinking ship, with no lifeboats
I hope those wings, you built to fly, get you high enough
'Cause I promise you, they’ll melt as soon, as the sun comes up
Icarus, weren’t they good enough?
Oh, Icarus, wasn’t their love enough?

Wax and feathers will buy you freedom, but your ignorance will not
I tried to tell you, you don’t listen, you’re only gonna get caught
They weren’t fooled, by the sweaters you wore, to cover all your scars
Can’t you see your broken adventures have torn them all apart?

They love you, far too much, to ever let you go
But I see, a sinking ship, with no lifeboats
I hope those wings, you built to fly, get you high enough
'Cause I promise you, they’ll melt as soon, as the sun comes up
Icarus, weren’t they good enough?
Oh, Icarus, wasn’t their love enough?

You look as though you’ve seen your ghost and I guess that you have
But you won’t stop running this road, drawn to the light ahead
Should your family choose to forgive, they’re stronger than me
I still wonder how many dungeons you’ll need before you see

They love you, far too much, to ever let you go
But I see, a sinking ship, with no lifeboats
I hope those wings, you built to fly, get you high enough
'Cause I promise you, they’ll melt as soon, as the sun comes up
Icarus, weren’t they good enough?
Oh, Icarus, wasn’t their love enough?
Oh, Icarus, weren’t they good enough?
Icarus, wasn’t their love enough?
