Greek Mythology: The Flight of Icarus (Daedalus and Icarus)

Wiki: In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus, the creator of the Labyrinth. Often depicted in art, Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus’ father warns him first of complacency and then of hubris, asking that he fly neither too low nor too high, so the sea’s dampness would not clog his wings or the sun’s heat melt them. Icarus ignored his father’s instructions not to fly too close to the sun; when the wax in his wings melted he tumbled out of the sky and fell into the sea where he drowned.

Iron Maiden:

Fly, on your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun,
On your way, like an eagle,
Fly touch the sun.
