lyrics

So what, if I'm the cautionary tale
So cooler heads, some day they may prevail
As hubris is a deadly sin, a sin producer
And if, a man, in circumstances like
Phaethon, needs confirmation, why
Even gods of prophecy can't change the future

And Icarus rose like the Phoenix
And flow his way to hell
He said, "My life, it now has meaning...
And mama, it's just as well."

So when, in all your loves and lives and hurts
In places where you're served your just deserts
Can it be pain beyond belief that gives us meaning?
Or will you try, though it's a grim mistake
To take your bow and steal that piece of cake
That was a lie, you know, Marie, there is no such thing

And Icarus rose like the Phoenix
And flow his way to hell
He said, "My life, it now has meaning...
And mama, it's just as well."

And who, if all these consequences bring
To be the prince or Minotaur or King
Can it be said the same of things that steal their seeming?
Or see, this time, we never had a choice
Like little frogs still hopping (hoping) for a voice
What is a myth, a story told of morals gleaming...

And Icarus rose like the Phoenix
And flow his way to hell
He said, "My life, it now has meaning...
And mama, it's just as well."

Yes mama, you know, it's just as well.
