Flight Of Icarus

Lyrics

As the sun breaks, above the ground,
An old man stands on the hill,
As the ground warms, to the first rays of light
A birdsong shatters the still.

Icarus son of Daedalus and Naucrate.
Great Song luv Maiden!!!!
an emotional male lead vocal performance
Was my brother's fav. MAIDEN SONG," LIKE THE PHOENIX I WILL RISE ABOVE THE ASHES" MINE TOO
Oh this is mind & my brother's most prrsonal Maiden dong
@chris knight---rig h t on man! Historical, biblical, ancient, contemporary , imaginative and visionary would best describe these lyricists from Maiden. Especially Harris. The best &most dynamic in rock period!

I love this song!! <33
I always loved how Iron Maiden added history & folk lore to their music
Daddy issues?
Back stabbing is MOFO.. Awesome song.
Dickinson is a bad a**
Ahh Bruce Dickinson and iron maiden truly one of the best metal bands of all time kick a** band love pretty much all their stuff!!
This is my favorite vocal performance by Bruce Dickinson but not my favorite song.
My favorite by Maiden.

Yeah it does sound like there's a little bit of Dio influence in this song.
It reminds me of my big bro.
I like this f**kin band!!!
One of the last bands to bring their own sound to the table & match it w/ great songs. These days the bands basically grabbed one band's detuned sound & have run with it. Hell even tho Priest shared the 2-gtr thing like Maiden, you could tell 1 from the other then. These days, bands are dead set on all having the same detuned sound.
Great album
In the name of God my father I'll fly - Hell yes!!!!!
First song I ever sang,That I could hold a note for a long time.At least it seemed like a long time, HA ha ha!!!!!

I wish I could fly.

SATANISTS!!! ! Just kiddin'.
This song KILLS!!!
old man stands on the heeel
I liked Dio... before he ran off Vivian Campbell, that is. But Dio's solo work never matched the epic feel of Maiden. In fact, they never TRIED to match them.
This song made me fall in love with Maiden
Sorry, Steve Harris and Jimmy Bain bass and songwriting skills are nowhere near the same level...Bain is a great guy but Harris' methods of madness are at the root of Iron Maiden resulting in completely dissimilar style from Dio...
What a great F***ing song. Agree with Tim.... definately one of the top 5 ......
Definitely in my top 5, Maiden best song list
There are not enough references to dragons, rainbows, and sorcery to be Dio-esque. But, it would be an interesting mix to have RJD do a cover of this song. Unfortunatel y , that will never happen now. Via con Dios, Dio!
Sounds just like Ronnie James Dio!
One of the Best Song of these beasts..
one of my favorite Iron Maiden songs
all time favorite !!!!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Flight of Icarus rules!
