Icarus

lyrics

I found that the frost in my boots
Makes nice with my sole
Pulls scars from my head
Uncarved by the touch of breaths set undone
Though odd in their shape they amplify once.
We made life an entrance so grand
Had no welcome in, with no one to stand
Against the grain grown, just cultured through shock
We are some animals

Cold nights, “officer please, I need to get home so that I can feed-
Nothing, no family, just undeserved wealth
“I think I’ve seen enough.”
You, your life, your god damn life
I think there are rifts corroding your sight
You’ll stand to starve, to see once again that
We’re fucking animals

When Icarus fell I wept alone
Entertained my silence so black
It came, it saw, it conquered me
It’s birth by singularity

Now days seem a little less sane
A little more warped, a little less sharp
But content, that I am, content that I have
To spoil my mind again

I saw god, burn my wings with glaring light
That’s fine, it’s nothing more than karma left for those who try at all
