Icarus II
Kansas Lyrics


In the darkness I rise, long before
The dawn
I was dreaming of home and the life I
Led
I can hear the sound, of the engines
Roar
And I crave the embrace of my
Empty bed
Where I'm safe (there I'm safe)

But the call is clear, and the task is
Set
And my enemies wait in the dark sky
Do they fear the same fear,
Do they dream like us
Do they long for the day when it's
Over
And they're safe

We are cruising above the horizon
Neve knowing if we will return
In a moment we'll loose the
Destruction
And we'll justify all that we burn

Here the air is cold, but my thoughts
Are clear
And so I'm wondering why I must be
Here
For the evil that can come,
From the heart of a man
Must be answered in kind 'til it
Disappears
And we're safe

Now we're cruising above the horizon
Neve knowing if we will return
In a moment we'll rain down
Destruction
And we'll justify all that we burn

Here they come

Dodging all the tracers, sky is full of
Lead
I can see the pilots' faces
Safety in our numbers, eagles
Overhead
We are in the sight of aces

Flak, bursting all around
Friends, going down in flames

Now we're hit, it's happened
This is what I feared
Something's telling me my time has
Come
Though it should be panic, I can feel
A peace
Strangely, now I know my purpose...

Hey boys! Hey, get out while you
Can
I'll try to take us home

I'm going home...

One of the best bands of rock history. Fantastic.

I've been listening to Kansas since high school and still do every day since my drive to work is an hour. Now in my 60's I wonder where has time gone? But Kansas still takes me back to the younger days, the good old peaceful days! Rock on Forever Kansas!

This is the music genious of one Kerry Livgren...

fligemon

Kerry's presence is very much in evidence on this song and most of the songs on this album.  Storytelling set to brilliant musical  composition is always interesting........

Tadeu Graciolli

Agree! Totally!

Marcelo Lima

He is a genius

Kerry wrote all the songs.

For a Livgren-Kansas swan song, I don't think they could have released a better album.

oilingup

when played live, this song segues into the original Icarus

Justin
