The Melting Point Of Wax Lyrics - Thrice

Review The Song (5)



I've waited for this moment
All my life and more
And now I see so clearly
What I could not see before.
The time is now or never
This chance won't come again
Throw caution and myself into the wind.

There's no promise of safety with these secondhand wings
But I'm willing to find out what impossible means.
A leap of faith.

Parody of an angel
Miles above the sea
I hear the voice of reason
Screaming after me
"You've flown far too high boy now you're too close to the sun,
Soon your makeshift wings will come undone"

But how will I know limits from lies if I never try?

There's no promise of safety with these secondhand wings
But I'm willing to find out what impossible means.
I'll climb through the heavens on feathers and dreams
'Cause the melting point of wax means nothing to me.
Nothing to me
Nothing to me

I will touch the sun or I will die trying.
Die Trying.

Fly on these secondhand wings
Willing to find out what impossible means
I'll climb through the heavens on feathers and dreams
'Cause the melting point of wax means nothing to me
Nothing to me
Means nothing to me
Miles above the sea.

Thrice's old stuff | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/29/10

I'm a die hard Thrice fan and I agree that Artist in the Ambulance (and their older cds) could do with some re-mastering. Their sound really evolved after Vhiesseu and became a lot more clena--but there are so many nuggets in their old stuff, I'd love to see their new producer get ahold of the old originals.

That's all I have to say. The way the song was actually played, wasn't really that impressive, but the written words are incredible.

If you really want a great song, listen to part 2 "Daedalus". It tells the story from the father's point of view and the song is much more well-played.



Icarus | Reviewer: Carlos | 11/3/08

This song seems to be sung by the greek mythology character Icarus. Icarus and Daedalus, a talented craftsman and his father, attempted to escape from their exile on the island of Crete by making wings out of wax and feathers. Before they took off from the island, Daedalus warned his son not to fly too close to the sun. Overcome by the giddiness that flying lent him, Icarus soared through the sky curiously, but in the process he came too close to the sun, which burned his wings. Icarus fell into the sea. There are many interpretations of this story, but the consensus is that it is a warning against rash actions.

pretty pretty pretty lyrics. Not bad vocals on this. Overall it's a good song, though not the best.
