"Icarus Lives!" as written by and Misha Mansoor Thomas Murphy....
Believe in memories to resurrect me

Besieged by falling dreams
Hold them tightly
Adorn my wings to thee, and use them nightly

I'm neither angel nor a demon spawn
Though some will call me god
Gravity is just a law I've wrought

Hear temptation take the sky for all to see
Sheer elation to write in history

I'm neither angel nor a demon spawn
Though some will call me god
Gravity is just a feeble plot

When I said I'd never kneel again
What I really meant
Was (fucking) pull the pin because time is spent

I'm neither angel nor a demon spawn
Though some will call me god
Fuck

Unite with ravens on their shadow flights
As my nocturnal right
Gravity is just a mortal's vice

When I said I'd never feel or see
Love and sight are last resorts for me

    Lyric CorrectionThe lyrics to the clip following this song:

    Thank you for purchasing Periphery's self titled debut long play record, Periphery.
    On this album you'll hear heavy metal, a genre of music from the future.
    Be dazzle by distortion, be bombarded by bass beats, and jitter-bug to Djent.
    We're sure you'll enjoy such finger-popping tunes as Light, Insomnia, and my own personal favorite, Ragtime Dandies.
    These songs and more are played by our talented troop of traveling troubadours, featuring the likes of Misha, the electric light bulb, Mansoor, who was voted the twenty-third most influential person in Brown Magazine and can be found on the cover of this month's Mocha Emporium.
    And look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's Trent Reznor, no, it's Jake Bowen and his seven strings of wonder.
    Rounding off the trio of strings-men is Alex Bois, the man with the arms of steel and the ass of a skunk.
    On drums is Matt Halpern, the only man who can break three symbols with one swing of the stick.
    Our lead singer will be Spencer Sotelo, who's voice goes up like an angel and down like a wounded ox.
    Last, but not least, is Tom Murphy, providing the rumble from down under and is the only member of Periphery decent enough for the institution of marriage.
    Experience heavy metal at it's finest. Periphery, love that shit.
