Kansas Icarus II Lyrics

Last updated: 10/13/2011 11:00:00 AM

In the darkness I rise, long before the dawn
I was dreaming of home and the life I led
And now I 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
And do they long for the day when it's over
And they're safe

Now we are cruising above the horizon
Never 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
Never 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...
