Here lies a man who once thought he could fly
Eyes up to heaven with a hope he could soar
Bird like in dreaming that dreams could bring more
But all he found was a new way to die

Eyes up to heaven he'd look at the birds
Flying and gliding with ease like the air
Piercing the sky while he's dumb struck down here
Feeling an envy untranscribed in words

Bird like he wanted to be so he climbed
Past all the villages up through the trees
Up to the cliffs that overlooked the sea
Dumb that his frame lacked the proper design

Thus all he found was a new way to die
