Track Name: Icarus Wings
Don't take a chance
On a guy like me
I crash and burn
Every chance I see

Don't try to change
My incredulous ways
Or try and tame
This bulldog in me

I made every bad mistake that can be made
I got third degree burns from my Icarus Wings
I got held at gunpoint for all my change
But joke's on them, I don't got shit to my name

A Nigerian Prince
Offered me all of his jewels
Did I play play him for a fool
Or did I look like a tool?

I tried to dance
With the snake in the grass
But when I owed it some cash
It bit me in the ass

I guess I'm kind of a quirky guy
Allow me now to tell you why
Hey man, I think I'm on the brink
I think it's time I should start to drink

Let's have a pint, or 2, or 3, or 14, or 15, oh God why!
I'm on a steep, steep slope with no god damn breaks
And the wall up ahead of me looks like it's gonna ache

I made every bad mistake that can be made
I got third degree burns from my Icarus Wings
I got held at gunpoint for all my change
But joke's on them, I don't got shit to my name

I made every bad mistake that can be made
I got third degree burns from my Icarus Wings
I got held at gunpoint for all my change
But joke's on them, I don't got shit to my name
