lyrics

You call him Icarus
I call him quality control
to find how high we can go
fall into the shiny sea
to find exactly what ‘too high’ means

Shackleton and two good men
out in the wasteland on the ice
they felt a fourth man there besides
keeping pace just out of sight
all along that Subantarctic night

who is that who walks beside you?
Was it frostbite, where you snowblind?
Who was in that plane to guide you?
Call them saints or the ghosts of pilots
until I have walked or flown where you have gone,
I’ll never know
You can call them what you like and I will keep my counsel
you can put your feet up on the table
I’ll get in the drinks

Ten days off the coast of Maine
Running hard before a swell
I spied a tall man at the helm
Kept us heading true for home
then left me as he found me, all alone

And you will know how high we can go
They’ve come to show
how high
we can go
