Poets of the Fall – Illusion & Dream (Live w/ Lyrics)


Do you believe in dreams? So do I! So thank you for believing in us for all these 10 years! Look in my eyes I’ll make you see We’re drifting aimlessly Blind in a world of make believe You hear them sing their songs off key N’ nod like they agree Buying the need to be discreet I’ve got no hand in matters worldly, I hardly care at all What’s going on fails to concern me,
cos I’m locked behind my wall But you know what drives me out
Out of my mind It’s whatever makes you see, makes you believe And forget about the premonition you need to conceive That the images they sell are illusion & dream In other words… Dishonesty Yes! If I speak ill, please humor me Won’t rant on endlessly Just thought I’d try to make you see It doesn’t solve a thing to dress it in a pretty gown A stone will not need you to guess if You’re still going to drown So you know what drives me out
Out of my mind It’s whatever makes you see, makes you believe And forget about the premonition you need to conceive That the images they sell are illusion & dream In other words dishonesty So can you name your demon? Understand its scheming I raise my glass and say “here’s to you” Can you chase that demon? Or will it fuckin’ take your freedom? I raise my class and say “here’s to you” I’ve got no hand in matters worldly, I hardly care at all What’s going on fails to concern me, cos I’m locked behind my wall But you know what drives me out
Out of my mind It’s whatever makes you see, makes you believe And forget about the premonition you need to conceive That the images they sell are illusion & dream In other words dishonesty So whatever makes you see, makes you believe And forget about the premonition you need to conceive That the images they sell are illusion & dream In other words dishonesty

  1. I love this song so much. They sound incredible live, I only wish to be able to see them one day.

  2. You guys are my favorite band…man whenever you guys came I could not go to your concerts….man it sucks to see your favorite band come to India and not being able to go there…

  3. This is by far my favorite song. Thank you so much for uploading this video, seeing it live is so amazing!

  4. Beautiful music and pretty faces. This can't be real. I must be dreaming .

  5. My one of the most favourite song, hauntingly beautiful lyrics. Please Come back to India again

  6. This is a little xmas gift in advance for my soul, kiitos you guys๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–

  7. People who turn to pink floyd to learn philosophy should check out The Poets for the real deal. I havenโ€™t seen a single band TILL DATE who write such philosophical and thought provoking lyrics that constantly keeps the dopamine firing in our brains for the multiple interpretations one can come up with.
    This song talks about the concept of Maya and what ever you see seeping you is just a dream. Life is just a ride and nothing more. This song is a true โ€˜sign of lifeโ€™. And what a way to have it ordered right before you go and โ€œsleepโ€, to wake up to a new morning, a new life.

  8. Dear Poets of the Fall.
    Your music and lyrics are the only true and honest thing that remain for me in this world, built on illusions, smokes and mirrors.
    Thank you for existing.

  9. my favorite song from the album "Signs of life"! If she sounds good in recordings, I can't imagine how beautiful she is in LIVE performances!) Cool, thanks

  10. One of my favourite songs from Sign of Life. It is in top 3 in my personal POTF playlist. Love it. And i want MORE)

  11. I cannot believe this piece of gold has less than ten thousands views, people nowadays really lost their taste in music.

  12. Poets of the Fall are incredible! I saw them in concert in Minsk last year, and will go to listen this nice band again and again!๐Ÿค—

  13. "Illusion & Dream"

    Look in my eyes I'll make you see
    We're drifting aimlessly
    Blind in a world of make believe

    Hear them sing their songs off key n' nod like they agree
    Buying the needs to be discreet

    I've got no hand in matters worldly
    I hardly care at all
    What's going on fails to concern me
    'Cause I'm locked behind my wall
    But you know what drives me out
    Out of my mind oh

    It's whatever makes you see
    Makes you believe
    And forget about the premonition you need to conceive
    The images they sell are Illusion and Dream
    In other words dishonesty

    If I speak ill please, humour me
    Won't rant on endlessly
    Just thought I'd try to make you see

    It doesn't solve a thing to dress it, in a pretty gown
    A stone will not need you to guess if, you're still going to drown
    So you know what drives me out
    Out of my mind, oh

    It's whatever makes you see, makes you believe
    And forget about the premonition you need to conceive
    The images they sell are Illusion & Dream
    In other words dishonesty

    So can you name your demon?
    Understand it's scheming
    I raise my glass and say "Here's to you"

    Can you chase your demon?
    Or will it take your freedom?
    I raise my glass and say "Here's to you"

    I've got no hand in matters worldly
    I hardly care at all
    What's going on fails to concern me
    'Cause I'm locked behind my wall
    But you know what drives me out
    Out of my mind oh

    It's whatever makes you see
    Makes you believe
    And forget about the premonition you need to conceive
    That the images they sell are Illusion and Dream
    In other words dishonesty

    So whatever makes you see
    Makes you believe
    And forget about the premonition you need to conceive
    The images they sell are Illusion and Dream
    In other words dishonesty
    With silence comes peace
    With peace comes freedom
    With freedom comes silence

  21. Look in my eyes I'll make you see
    We're drifting aimlessly
    Blind in a world of make believe
    Hear them sing their songs off key n' nod like they agree
    Buying the needs to be discreet
    I've got no hand in matters worldly
    I hardly care at all
    What's going on fails to concern me
    'Cause I'm locked behind my wall
    But you know what drives me out
    Out of my mind oh
    It's whatever makes you see
    Makes you believe
    And forget about the premonition you need to conceive
    The images they sell are Illusion and Dream
