Flight of Icarus

heavy metal metal Iron Maiden NWOBHM hard rock


Daedalus, a skilled craftsmen in exile in Crete, fashioned two pairs of wings out of wax and feathers for himself and his son, Icarus, to escape prison walls. Before they took off from the island, Daedalus warned Icarus not to fly too close to the sun, or too close to the sea. Overcome by curiosity, Icarus soared through the sky, but in the process he came too close to the sun, which melted the wax. Icarus soon had no feathers left and that he was only flapping his bare arms. And so, Icarus fell to his death into the sea.

Flight of Icarus - Iron Maiden

As the sun breaks above the ground
An old man stands on the hill
As the ground warms to the first rays of light
A birdsong shatters the still

His eyes are ablaze
See the madman in his gaze

Fly on your way like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your wings like an eagle
Fly and touch the sun

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears
Look the old man in his eyes
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd
In the name of God my father I fly

His eyes seem so glazed
As he flies on the wings of a dream
Now he knows his father betrayed
Now his wings burn to ashes to ashes his grave

Fly on your way like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your wings like an eagle
Fly and touch the sun
