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


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 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 a 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 and hide 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 a crime And in the emptiness, there’s a solution Just look within yourself for absolution And 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 a crime

  1. This song is just soooo amazing… omg. These guys are my absolute favorite band, and that's coming from an american where they aren't very popular!

  2. Awesome band, awesome songs, and music videos that have so much meaning in them to add to the words used.

  3. Thinking about making a montage of superhero clips with this song. Good idea?

  4. Its sad that other shitty songs and music has more views and shit… But when they'll discover this, they'd be like "this is gold! Where has this been all my life" .. Its sad they don't respect talent anymore :/

  5. Proud to say I've had a few people I know become interested in this band just from listening to a few songs. The conversation usually goes:

    – "I like this song. Who is this?"
    – Poets of the Fall
    – "Who?"
    – Poets of the Fall
    – "I've never heard of them"
    – It wouldn't surprise me that you haven't. They're from Finland.
    – "Nice. I should check them out."

    😀

  6. i only just came across them today…i keep clicking and clicking and clicking…seems like they don't know how to write a bad song

  7. There are no solutions in the emptiness. The real solution is in the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

  8. Audience provided by VLC media player!!!.. Jokes apart, great song with a very deep meaning.

  10. Ok poets of the fall on my shit list and I'm checking it twice……the fuck…the list shit wasn't santa clause it was like the Jews fear of men with list……shit Hitler played out the end time in part…..and now the rest do…..but lock up the soon….that sucks…..I was in foster care they tortured and killed my mother pretending to resesitate it was bullshit I'm right…imagine scene from I know what you did last summer……what are you waiting for…what are you waiting….fuck I beat a guy into a fucking coma come on…..I'm not great I'm not bad or good…not very ugly either……..but I am……laughable but so is most things….looked into the mirror and laughed at god…. nothing…maybe it was pitty

  11. Maybe it was grace my fucking grace……a man's grace…..which is sad but apparently the United States is partial sustained by my soul….muha boo boo I'll get like a fucking nut job thanking God wants his creation destroyed…or laughed at….or his mother killed…….that sucked low point in my life to be sure….

  12. To answer the question this song asks, yes, there is a hero who can do that. His name is Adam Warlock. Marvel universe, infinity gauntlet storyline. Once he gets the gauntlet from Thanos, he gains the ability to change whatever he wants, and can restore what Thanos screwed up.

  13. Now take that sober chip sheet metal what do u get toward the sun

  14. i think song goes well with superman christopher reeves and tom welling. Super savior on DC.

  16. God all he needs is the right material and exposure and wham bam bop boom instant supper Star. Fantastic vocals!!!!

  17. 2:48 – best metaphor in the vid.. turning the cone face thing into a dunce cap once they see the light… how clever was the guy who came up with this video anyway? jeez. love it ;D

  18. Fake is your war as well.. fight for glory seen one and relished..mahi re aaaaaaaaaass was to stink the country..

  19. He looks like the short hair version of chad kroeger sometimes and sometimes and sometimes like corey Taylor. But he definitely sounds like corey Taylor

  20. Once again, I have to say… I LOVE this band! I'm so glad YouTube suggested them to me!

  21. Nice sinister scheme! That`s exactly the way i think too. Brave people unite! This world concern us all! From waste clearance over human and animal rights to tax usage. It`s time to suspend all the parasites! We`re all responsible for our Planet! Wake up people!

  22. The point that they are flawless but not famous explain and describe the whole story of music industry … just simple … they don't want you to have knowledge and be aware of what's going on … keep going … there is no way to wake up people who pretend to be asleep … but we hear you guys
