This song was written around a short and simple poem I concocted using the myth of Icarus to poke at questions about confidence. He probably had too much of it, which is something a lot of us can relate to. Usually when we fly too close to the proverbial sun, we don't really plummet to the earth, but our confidence often can. Unlike Icarus, we can often build ourselves back up again, and look the situation from another angle. We can be wiser than Icarus and make our next flight by the light of the moon instead.


Take this
The moonlight
Never melted wax
Didn't think of that
