Icarus is a song written by Marie McAuliffe. In 2014, Keegan took a very heavy interest in this song when it was just maturing into something big while Marie was emptying her folder of GuitarPro files. Upon getting hold of the song file, Keegan augmented into and changed it, until he managed to make it into what you hear before you.

The lyrics are talking about the classic tale of Icarus, with the twist that the Son of Daedalus is creating a symphony, or a play, that is incredibly out of reach from any artist he brings it to, no matter how knowledgeable of a wizard, until he finally plunges into frustration and insanity.


Confined by some imaginary barrier played by people of today.
I will be the one to overcome this, the man to change this ordinance.

With my wings made out of wax and feathers, I will, Take flight, And rise.
Above everyone else, UNSTABLE. I soared, so high, my wings, would melt
Until I crashed into the sea...

Burn. Fall. Constrained like everyone else, by what you can play.

Determined to, create, an incredible masterpiece, unmatched, superlative,
Something too intense, nonpareil. no one to help.
The masters are all perplexed, I took too deep a delve.

I am trapped.

I am powerless.

Once, ages ago, I was committed to create an incredible craftsmanship, unmatched, a paragon,
Something too extreme, unplayable, no one to help, I'm in Hell.
Every maven that I asked, couldn't parallel,
I had failed.
