Poets of the Fall – Locking Up the Sun (Live w/ Lyrics)


My, my! Good evening everybody! How are you doing tonight? You know, I gotta feeling …that they’re keeping the spring away from us I have a feeling …that they’re locking up the sun They’re locking up the sun, the light of reasons gone N’ hope has been successfully undone The question’s burning on, where is it coming from Cause no-one seems to know the monster born It’s a bad trip on a sinking ship,
when no-one seems responsible Scapegoat to rock the boat,
yeah, we need someone expendable Volunteers to face the fears, can we be sensible And find a way to break the fall, find out the cure for all Is there a hero somewhere,
someone who appears and saves the day Someone who holds out a hand and turns back time Is there a hero somewhere,
someone who will never walk away Who doesn’t turn a blind eye to my crime They’re locking up the sun, they have their chosen one You know this time they’ll make him play along They’re taking to the arms, the fathers and their sons There’s nowhere left to run It’s a bad trip on a sinking ship,
when no-one seems responsible Scapegoat to rock the boat,
yeah, we need someone expendable Volunteers to face the fears, can we be sensible And find a way to break the fall, find out the cure for all Is there a hero somewhere,
someone who appears and saves the day Someone who holds out a hand and turns back time Is there a hero somewhere,
someone who will never walk away Who doesn’t turn a blind eye to my crime And in the emptiness, there’s a solution just look within yourself for absolution Cause in the emptiness, there’s a solution just look within yourself for absolution Is there a hero somewhere,
someone who appears and saves the day Someone who holds out a hand and turns back time Is there a hero somewhere,
someone who will never walk away Who doesn’t turn a blind eye to my crime This…they’ll be locking up the sun!

  1. I hope they do well in 2018…I mean obviously they do great but they are underrated…you have our support continue concerts more and more…and make songs more famous…

  2. how did i only stumble upon this band last week and they've been around for years making awesome music? i have to thank spotify "discover weekly" for turning me onto these guys.

  3. They performed this on my birthday in 2013. My favorite band, ever. 🙌🙌🙌

  4. So. Much. Talent. The guitar, the bass, the drums; pure beauty of sound. The lead singer … omg mind blown I cannot even fathom being able to have the lung capacity, the vocal stability, the amazing range. He twirls and jumps and not once do you hear it. Amazed I am so glad every one of them got together and created this masterful music. Thank you for being pure bliss on the ears.

  5. Just got home from seeing them in Amsterdam. 😀 And Locking up the Sun was among the songs played.

  6. I found POTF 2 weeks ago when I went to sleep wit' YouTube playing Disturbed play list aaand woke up to this cool band! Awesome sauce, y'all!! <3

  7. long time ago I played max Payne on my first computer, that game gave me this band 😀 than some years later I played Alan awake and the story continues 🙂
