Believe in memories to resurrect me

Besieged by falling dreams
Hold them tightly
Adorn my wings to thee, and use them nightly

I'm neither angel nor a demon spawn
Though some will call me god
Gravity is just a law I've wrought

Hear temptation take the sky for all to see
Sheer elation to write in history

I'm neither angel nor a demon spawn
Though some will call me god
Gravity is just a feeble plot

When I said I'd never kneel again
What I really meant
Was (fucking) pull the pin because time is spent

Unite with ravens on their shadow flights
As my nocturnal right
Gravity is just a mortal's vice

When I said I'd never feel or see
Love and sight are last resorts for me

    I know icarus is the guy in Greek mythology who flew too close to the Sun and melted his wings. The title is Icarus Lives so... Maybe it's metaphorically speaking about failing and falling down... Not giving into someone or something so "Never kneel again" I love this song the acapella version is just as good.
