LYRIC

Look who's digging their own grave

That is what they all say

You'll drink yourself to death

Look who makes their own bed

Lies right down within it

And what will you have left?

Out on the front doorstep

Drinking from a paper cup

You won't remember this

Living beyond your years

Acting out all their fears

You feel it in your chest

Your hands protect the flames

From the wild winds around you

Icarus is flying too close to the sun

And Icarus's life, it has only just begun

It's just begun

Ooh

Standing on the cliff face

Highest fall you'll ever grace

It scares me half to death

Look out to the future

But it tells you nothing

So take another breath

Your hands protect the flames

From the wild winds around you

Icarus is flying too close to the sun

And Icarus's life, it has only just begun

And this is how it feels to take a fall

Icarus is flying towards an early grave

You put up your defenses when you leave

You leave because you're certain

Of who you want to be

You're putting up your armor when you leave

And you leave because you're certain

Of who you want to be, oh

Icarus is flying too close to the sun

And Icarus's life, it has only just begun

This is how it feels to take a fall

Icarus is flying towards an early grave
