“Icarus” by Eli Cuomo

How high can you fly before falling down
How low can you go before you don’t care
How insane are you before you’re a clown
How equal are you before you are fair

Why do we care what other people think
Why are we in a state of conforming
Why do we care if a man is in pink
We all want clothes we aren’t affording

We care about what others have to say
But that means we never think on our own
And there is a very big price to pay
For someone that is real down to the bone

Why do we do the kinds of things we do
Why don’t we do the things we want to
