The theme of Icarus appears in a lot of art and music. Here is one of my favorites, Icarus Ascending by Dan Fogelburg.
Soaring alone upon a threatening wind Just fix your eyes on the horizon Cut off from everything You've known or have been I shouldn't think it's so surprisin' Spiralling upward on a freshening lift Reaching the realms of fleet Apollo You have been given the most sacred of gifts You must be fearless now and follow
[Chorus:] Don't look down Though your heart may be weary Don't look down Though your wings are on fire Don't look down Though the night may seem endless There's a reason you're flying This fast and this far
Let your faith be your strength And your love be your guiding star Venturing further than The length of your sight Out past the reach of your beginnings There is a gamble in each Proud act of flight But the losses pale before the winnings Circling and diving with this Freedom you've found Illusion blows apart and scatters There is no darkness in this place That we're bound Love is the only thing that matters
