don't mind my yelling. i fell to the sea chasing the sun. if i shout i will drown faster.
ICARUS!
YOU ARE A BOY OF WAX AND MOLTEN GOLD!
YOUR FLIGHT WAS NOT FOLLY AND YOUR NEED FOR FREEDOM WAS NOT HUBRIS!
THEY NAMED A SEA AFTER YOU THEY NAMED AN ISLAND AFTER YOU!
YOU WERE YOUNG!
YOU WERE YOUNG!
THEY HAVE MADE AN EXAMPLE OF YOU!
LOOK AT YOUR HANDS DO YOU FEEL THE SALTWATER BOILING DO YOU SEE YOURSELF ENGULFED IN FLAME DO YOU BURN LIKE A SHOOTING STAR!
I AM SORRY!
ICARUS!
I AM SORRY!
