[Verse 1]
Take your melted wings in hand and drift away
Save your noble dreams for yet another day
For it was you who flew where men never dared
And you who wept when men never cared
And all they could do was laugh and point and say

[Chorus]
Hey Icarus, that's what you get for flying so high
It's not yours to reason why
Did you know men were not meant to cross the sea
And flying like birds is insanity
What kind of fool can you be?

[Verse 2]
But fools fear all they do not choose to understand
And the search for truth is often foreign to many men
Should it be so wrong to see past the sky?
For if I fail then the burden is mine
What harm comes to you if I should live all I can?

[Chorus]
But they say Icarus, that's what you get for flying so high
It's not yours to reason why
Did you know men were not meant to cross the sea
And flying like birds is insanity
What kind of fool can you be?
