Icarus flew too near the sun
Into the blue his red wax did run
He fell to the earth and sealed the scroll
The daredevil angels unknown would unfold
They are the only ones
The chosen only ones
They are the only ones who are free

Half-human, half-bird ascending so high
No whisper is heard from deep in the sky
On wings as they climb, they beat and they soar
Through space and time towards heaven's door
They are the only ones
The chosen only ones
They are the only ones who are free

In chariots of fury and flame
We head for above to stake out our claim
With radioscopes, electronic eyes
We scan for our hopes in different skies
They are the only ones
The chosen only ones
They are the only ones who are free

Icarus flew too near the sun
Into the blue his red wax did run
He fell to the earth and sealed the scroll
The daredevil angels unknown would unfold
They are the only ones
The chosen only ones
They are the only ones who are free
