Part-time superstar
Do you know what you really are?
Just ash from a god's cigar

Part-time superstar
You're a pretty little meteor
Burnin' up in the atmosphere
Yeah, you know what you are

You rise and fall like this
Like some new Icarus

Part-time superstar
Do you know what you really are?
Just the blood from a broken heart

Part-time superstar
They say you’re never gonna go far
You can’t fight an unwinnable war
You gotta own what you are, you're a part-time superstar

You spread your wings like this
And fall like Icarus
Yeeeah, now you know what you are

Part-time superstar
Just the blood from a broken heart
Just the ash from a god's cigar
And I don't wanna be a part-time superstar no more

Hey, you are the face of the new youth
You take the place of the old truth
Now the world knows who you are
Another fifteen-minute star
And you know what this is:
The age of Icarus, Kid Icarus
