[Lyrics]

As the sun breaks above the ground an old man stands on the hill
As the ground warms to the first rays of light a bird song shatters the still
His eyes are ablaze, see the madman in his gaze

Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly and touch the sun

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears, looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd "In the name of God my father I'll fly!"
His eyes seem so glazed as he flies on the wings of a dream
Now he knows his father betrayed, now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave

Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun

Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly toward the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly...

Fly as high as the sun

''Flight Of Icarus'' is a song from Iron Maiden's album,Piece Of Mind,and it was released in 1983.

'Flight Of Icarus' is very loosely based on the ancient Greek myth of D├Ždalus who was imprisoned by king Minos of Crete. He and his son Icarus fashioned wings from feathers and wax and made their escape, but Icarus flew too near the sun, melting the wax that held the feathers, and he fell to his death in the sea.

''It's a really good song but we much prefer it live. We tend to play it a little bit faster live. Looking back on it now we feel we could have played it at the faster speed on the album. This little extra touch gives it a bit more fire. If you're counting solos, this is Dave. '' Steve Harris
