I was once confined in colossal walls Each corner and path lead to the unknown Thought of escaping by flying above this cage On a contraption Daedalus called his own
I saw the end of the labyrinth The sweet smell of liberation filled the air I saw another thing-- much brighter, more captivating To ignore the beauty of Sol, I wouldn't even dare
I knew reaching the sun was pure insanity I knew I wasn't supposed to go near it But what was stopping me? What could get in the way between you and me?
All my efforts flying up were completely wasted It didn't even take a while to realize How the wings made of wax quickly melted Down I go in utter surprise
I used to think that only animals are kept inside cages Now I know why hearts are confined in them, too To keep us from listening to the temptations of its sinful desires Before we realize it all too soon
