time is what keeps things from happening at once.
i will show you fear in a hand full of dust.

Once I was Icarus
I soared through the sky
I feared no evil
I saw no lies.

Once I was Echo
free and far better free
now a wasted breath
nobody wants to see

Once I was Achilles
brave and strong,
was hurt on my weak point
then I was gone

Once I was Ioa
happy and carefree
yet one event
made a beast of me.

The events we go through change us, from the innocence and purity of childhood to the realistic cynicism of adulthood.
