I've waited for this moment


And now I see so clearly
All my life and more

What I could not see before

The time is now or never


And this chance won't come again
Throw caution and myself into the wind




There's no promise of safety
With these secondhand wings

What impossible means

But I'm willing to find out

A leap of faith



Parody of an angel


Miles above the sea
I hear the voice of reason

Screaming after me

You flew far to high for

Now you're too close to the sun


Soon your makeshift wings will come undone

But how will I know


Limits from lies

If I never try




With these secondhand wings
There's no promise of safety

But I'm willing to find out


What impossible means
I climb through the heavens

On feathers and dreams

Cause the melting point of wax

Means nothing to me


Nothing to me

Nothing to me


I will touch the sun

Or I will die trying

Die trying



Fly on these secondhand wings

I'm willing to find out


What impossible means
I climb though the heavens

On feathers and dreams


Cause the melting point of wax
Means nothing to me
Nothing to me


It means nothing to me

Miles above the sea

    The story is that of daedalus and his son icharus, who escape the labyrinth on feathered winds bound together by wax and string. Look it up, great story, ancient greek myth.
