"Daedalus (What We Have)" as written by and Ellis Ludwig-leone....
[male voice]
I saw it all
Happened on the golden sheets
In the morning
You were asleep
Hazy in your golden days

There was a child
Moving on a mother's breast
Breathing only
Dust in the light
But you know it's awfully hard
To dream

I was a knight
In my mother's arms
Black as mourning
Wearing the lights
Glowing so my sister
Could see

I felt it all
But you know it's awfully hard
To talk about it
Try to recall
The girls when I was seventeen—
A dream

[female voice]
Know this can't be right
But it's awfully hard to fight
When it’s going quickly and it's like
We're half asleep
There's no rosy almost days behind
These painted lady eyes
Let it go and all that they imply
Get over me

[male voice]
I was afraid
When I left my home
And my mother
Sadness, my friend
She used to play for me
And sing

[female voice]
Know this can't be right
But it's awfully hard to fight
When it’s going quickly and it's like
We're half asleep
There's no rosy almost days behind
These painted lady eyes
Let it go and all that they imply
Get over me

It's hard to talk about
When inside you're freaking out
When it's going quickly and you doubt
You're anything
But it's what we have instead of God
What we have instead of God
What we have instead of God
We're anything

But it's what we have instead of God
What we have instead of God
What we have instead of God
We're anything

What we have instead of God
Like the moment after love
When we know we finally kill the buzz
So we can sleep
And we can finally let it lie
While the days keep passing by
Carried on the little deaths we die
Then we can sleep

[male voice, singing over female voice]
Where have you been?
Wish I could talk to you
I’ve been dreaming
I don't wanna die
Lying on the palest sheets
In the morning
I felt it all
But you know it's awfully hard
I don't wanna die
Lying in my mother's bed
In the morning
