Icarus

Celebrity on the rise, everything you do gets publicized
The grass looked so green in the light, now you're just dreaming of a private life

Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
You're just a modern day Icarus

Celebrity on the rise, don't leave your friends beneath your tires
You're livin' large now, but don't you know? You can never outrun your shadow

Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
You're just a modern day Icarus

"Hey poor Icarus too close to the sun,"
These wise words of a father spoken to his son.
Came from nowhere to take over the scene,
But the scene ended much too fast, know what I mean?
I mean at first it it seemed like it would be a blast
Got too big, too fast, it got too hot for that ass.
"You can't move the masses with shit that don't last.
You got a 3 year run, max, so don't get gassed.
You'll get outgunned, outmanned and outclassed.
Any questions asked was answered in the past.
People hate you, but they want to smoke all your grass,
There's a lot of puff, puff, but there's hardly any pass.
That's why all that gets thrown in the trash.
Your career is over like the parties that I crash.
I'm tryin' to tell ya, boy you really need to switch.
You got wings made of wax and the sun can be a bitch.
You might not want to listen, I think that you should,
Falling from this height will mess you up good.
That's why a word to the wise is sufficient...
Don't be all belligerent and indignant.
No matter what the pigment, you feel it when it's hot.
You'll be a star for a couple and suddenly you're not.
And you're going to wish that you would just die.
All you got to do is just spread your wings and fly."

FLY
FLY
FLY
FLY

Politicians on the take, got your dirty fingers in every decision you make
Getting down on society, you're movin' on up, ridin' the wave of greed

Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
Too fast, too strong, too hot to hold on
You're just a modern day Icarus

We're flying, we're flying, we're flying so high
Into the sky, into the sky

We're flying, we're flying, we're flying so high
Into the sky, into the sky
