Lyrics

Burn My Wings

There’s a Jack in the box
There’s a Jill in the box
There’s a Steve, Anne, Allan and a Phil in the Box

There is me in the box
There is you in the box
And every now and then
I get to change up the locks ‘cause

I am just an
Everyday believer in the power of the people and
You and I can
Change the world forever
If we just apply some pressure

Chorus
And If I burn my wings (burn my wings, burn my wings)
Flying too close to the Sun
You’d bet I’d learn some things (learn some things, learn some things)
Flying too close to the Sun
Like Daedalus and Icarus
My life can seem so damn ridiculous

There’s a space between us
Cried Romulus and Remus
Well the names have changed but it’s still Rome
Something came between us
And we broke the arms off Venus
Like a fragile wishing bone
In an all out tug of war

To build a life of value
based on love is how to
Break the chains that bind us in this history
I find that when compassion
is the force behind my actions
it never steers me wrong
Love carries me along

Chorus
And If I burn my wings (burn my wings, burn my wings)
Flying too close to the Sun
You’d bet I’d learn some things (learn some things, learn some things)
Flying too close to the Sun
Like Daedalus and Icarus
My life can seem so damn ridiculous
