    Earthquake

    Expelling the strict order of gravity
    Abducting all creature and man
    Rebelling against synthetic culture
    Tyrannically ruling the land
    Hurtling mortar and brick in his rage
    Questioning the will of the world
    Usurping his masters that kept him enslaved
    Assuming control of his realm
    Killing all hope in the days set to pass
    Electing a silence at last

    The Blinding of Icarus

    Daedelus, craft me the means to challenge mortal men
    I want to glide the bluest skies beyond the Crete island
    The labyrinth, far too confined nor bright enough for I
    So father will you heed my call and help me reach the sky

    These wings you've weaved from my own dreams will free me from my plight
    It's time to leave the darkness for I'm beckoned by the light
    Farewell, ta-ta, my great papa, your hope now lies with me
    Though there can be no burden on the shoulders of the free

    With one fine sweep, and then repeat, I'm starting to ascend
    These feathers grant me flight and my desires grant me strength
    I'm rising high!
    I really am!
    I'm one now with the clouds
    I look back at your bedimmed figure deep within the shroud

    I heed your warnings wisely as I'm taking to the breeze
    All birds return back to their nests but I have yet to feed
    I indulge in this fantasy that you've made out of wax
    And now only the island gulls dare follow in my tracks

    The light of the day's a dream-weaver as I look to the sands
    The golden-blue collage of hue spins straight out of my hands
    Now suddenly, I look to sea, but I struggle for sight
    Instead my eyes are blinded by the sun and all its might

    How do I turn, I've never learnt, for I am just a man
    I'm feeling ever-powerless, a prisoner of the land
    My mass is gaining fast, as I feel feathers gracefully bow
    For like a living candle, I'd ignited unavowed

    Oh light, you were an acolyte to Hephaestu's deep rage.
    You sought me as a sacrifice, my powers disengaged
    My eager pride impairs itself now moments from the drink
    Your mocking glow, omnipotent, as now you watch me sink

    Exchange my heart for grey skies
    And rain down my love like hate
    Soak me with our tears together
    Strip me of my innocence
    I bare only guilt
    Lost within the rising tides
    A trust eroded

    Exchange my heart for grey skies
    Let it rain, let it rain

    Never saw this thread before. Leaf, you're pretty damn good! Seems like you might be going through some shit right now, so if you ever want to talk or something I'm available my friend.
