about

One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands of all time. The raw emotion that Thrice manages to bring into this song and this story is just inspiring. Here is my rendition, hope you enjoy!

lyrics

I stand on the cliffs with my son next to me
This island our prison, our home
And everyday we look out at the sea
This place is all he's ever known

But I've got a plan and some wax and some string
Some feathers I stole from the birds
We leap from the cliff and we hear the wind
Sing a song that's too perfect for words

But son, please keep a steady wing
And know you're the only one that means anything to me
Steer clear of the sun, or you'll find yourself in the sea

Now safely away, I let out a cry
"We'll make the mainland by noon"
But Icarus climbs higher still in the sky
Maybe I've spoken too soon

Oh son, please keep a steady wing
And know you're the only one that means anything to me
Steer clear of the sun, or you'll find yourself in the sea
Won't you look at your wings
They're coming undone
They're splitting at the seams
Steer clear of the sun, for once won't you listen to me?

O, God!
Why is this happening to me?
All I wanted was a new life
For my son to grow up free
And now you took the only thing
That meant anything to me
I will never fly again, I will hang up my wings
O, God!
Why is this happening to me?
All I wanted was a new life
For my son to grow up free
And now you took the only thing
That meant anything to me
I will never fly again, I will hang up my wings
O, God!
