Collide

Story Behind The Song

Taken from the Greek tale of Icarus, this song details the story of a man who lets himself become a cheater. Behind closed doors, and in the shadows he is the master of his fate. He is flying high, until he is discovered and realizes that his wings are made of wax, and he has flown too close to the sun. This is his tale of falling from grace, and his ultimate demise as he plummets towards his own judgement.

Lyrics

I thought I had it under control,
Glaces oh so slightly,
What harm could it do.
A few late night behind closed doors,
It was all too easy to hide it from you

I was the master of my destiny

So wake me up from this dream
Before I get to the ending
Paying the price for feeling alive,
And paying more than I'm willing

Flying close to the sun on wax wings
A temporary escape and deadly
Finally I can see where the grass is green
Just before I collide into the sea

I was soaring through the sky,
Again all warning flying much too high.
Then she stopped answering the phone,
Message cold and stale, standard alibis

Then my vision shifts to melting wings

So wake me up from this dream
Before I get to the ending
Paying the price for feeling alive,
And paying more than I'm willing

Flying close to the sun on wax wings
A temporary escape and deadly
Finally I can see where the grass is green
Just before I collide into the sea
