Since the beginning, man has pushed himself to the limits trying to achieve the impossible. Discoveries and inventions are perhaps our way to escape from the mundane or to simply alter our lives. Such an effort is in the myth of Daedalus and Icarus, a compelling story of how necessity facilitated the invention of something that was never meant for man, and how it led to his downfall. Myth it may be, but the story of Daedalus and Icarus begs to show us that the power of man has no limits. And also that we should be very careful how to use this power.

Listen to “The Air Raid Siren”, Bruce Dickinson’s Isolated Vocal Track Below! 

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 birdsong 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 touch the sun. Yeah.

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 touch the sun. Yeah.

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, touch the sun. On your way, like an eagle. Fly. Fly as high as the sun.

We all dream to soar, often disregarding the warnings of those closest to us. Even in failure, we somehow become legends!
