Poets of the Fall – False Kings (Official 4K Video w/ Lyrics)


Getting lost singing their song Caught up in all I’ve done It’s all I know, but not what I need Cut by my love, cut till I bleed So I want to run to your shelter tonight Run to the shelter tonight United in silent resistance Of bowing to false kings So let me run to your shelter tonight Run from this meaningless pantomime I’ll swallow my pride, give up the pretence Of bowing to false kings Bought their smiles, liquid and smooth Took their words for the truth Edge of light and shade My broken soul once more enslaved So I want to run to your shelter tonight Run to the shelter tonight United in silent resistance Of bowing to false kings So let me run to your shelter tonight Run from this meaningless pantomime I see the false kings I see that all this Must end When there’s no love in my embrace Cold blood runs through my veins If I soar without grace Do I still soar I need the love in your embrace Open doors, brand new ways End my wars and erase And I’m yours So I want to run to your shelter tonight Run to the shelter tonight United in silent resistance Of bowing to false kings So let me run to your shelter tonight Run from this meaningless pantomime I’ll swallow my pride, give up the pretence Yes, I wined and, and I dined on, on that cyanide

  1. Marko is one of those few singers out there who can carry the most weird make-ups with extraordinary confidence. He is also talented enough to match his expressions to the make up he is wearing. Take this song, Daze and Carnival of Rust for example. And of course his voice adds to the wow quotient 🙂

  2. Beautiful, they should do the next Bond intro song; what are the movie producers waiting to ask them? I think Marko would also make a great villain for the movie
    Aaaah!!! the more I hear it, the more I enjoy this song, its lyrics, the orchestration and that beautiful silky voice of Mr Saaresto's
    Prime quality! For those who disliked the video, I really do not get why

  3. The only thing I don't like is that Marko's getting old, however, that, that golden voice is not ageing a single second! #timelessness

  4. One of the best songs in the album and live it was PHENOMENAL. Seriously, I got chill the whole time they were playing this. The new album is so good can't wait to see them live again <3

  5. So let me run to your shelter tonight

    Run from this meaningless pantomime

    I'll swallow my pride, give up the pretence

    Of bowing to false kings
    #perfection

  7. Голос и манера исполнения. Они ВЕЛИКОЛЕПНЫ!
    Песня просто не выходит из моей головы. При прослушивании её я получаю наслаждение.

  8. It is a wonderful song, I never know if I am a false king and always try not to be, but who knows, it is up to anyones interpretation, that is what makes this song so great for me.. a few think I should be some kind of leader in my country but I am not quite ready for such a task, taking on an entire countrys future in my hands feels a bit over my head 🙂

  9. False kings

    Getting lost singing their song

    Caught up in all I've done

    It's all I know,

    but not what I need

    Cut by my love,

    cut till I bleed

    So I want to run to your shelter tonight

    Run to the shelter tonight

    United in silent resistance

    Of bowing to false kings

    So let me run to your shelter tonight

    Run from this meaningless pantomime

    I'll swallow my pride, give up the pretence

    Of bowing to false kings

    Bought their smiles, liquid and smooth

    Took their words for the truth

    Edge of light and shade

    My broken soul once more enslaved

    So I want to run to your shelter tonight

    Run to the shelter tonight

    United in silent resistance

    Of bowing to false kings

    So let me run to your shelter tonight

    Run from this meaningless pantomime

    I see the false kings

    I see that all this

    Must end

    When there's no love in my embrace

    Cold blood runs through my veins

    If I soar without grace

    Do I still soar

    I need the love in your embrace

    Open doors, brand new ways

    End my wars and erase

    And I'm yours

    So I want to run to your shelter tonight

    Run to the shelter tonight

    United in silent resistance

    Of bowing to false kings

    So let me run to your shelter tonight

    Run from this meaningless pantomime

    I'll swallow my pride, give up the pretence

    Yes, I wined and, and I dined on, on that cyanide

  10. I first thought this song was about love – and then I saw the video. If you know what gambling is like, it is a genuinely thrilling song.

  11. Poets of the Fall? Wow!, I remember the song "Late Goodbye" from Max Payne. Didn't know they were Finnish. Hyvin!

  12. Mark Saaresto is a great vocalist and a great performer also. In my opinion he should seriously consider following an acting career.I believe all of us would love to see him in a movie ,that would be amazing.He reminds me of Benedict Cumberbatch aren't they such unique personallities these two?

  13. I complety love you guys. Everytime I listen to one of your songs, you, take my heart, break it into pieces, repair the broken pieces and make it a new heart, ready to live your music one more time, over and over again… I love it!!!

  14. Sometimes, your false kings aren't a group.

    Sometimes, "they" are a single person who you loved with all your heart, but were not loved in return.

    I swallow my pride, give up the pretense…yes I wined on and I dined on that cyanide.

  15. Just a random question which may be answered before: Is the guy who checkmates Marko the same one who loses his GF in "Dancing On Broken Glass"?

  16. Amazing voice and amazing song! Feels like honey and absinthe – sweet and dizzy with
    bitterness tinge. Nothing to say but "BRAVO"!

  17. I love this band so bad… Marko's voice is like a liquid, soft fire in my skin. And those references to other songs/albums…. Simply perfect! "Getting lost singing their song…" That's how I feel. No words to describe it.

  18. Justin beiber has 43 M subscribers and this brilliant band has only 250 thousands
    Yes ladies and gentlemen this is the stupid world we're living in right now

  19. Hey is Marko was one a Batman fan or something lol "it's all i know but not what I need " like in Batman he's the one that Gotham deserves but he's not the one that Gotham needs "also he's frequent love with the jocker face and this time Batman villain 2 face he's acting on lol

  20. Smoothness of the beats and the soothing feeling this song gives to the heart and mind …… I am loving it.

  21. What a magnificent baritone! I’ve been following POTF for 2 years and I’ve never got disappointed by their songs! And this song has become one of my favorites!

  22. last year i had the pleasure to witness the poets perform live at NH7 Weekender at Shillong….still the best night of my life

  23. Found this song when I started to read Brandson Sanderson first, modern mistborn series book Alloy of Law….the song and the book mood are in just a perfect harmony…

  24. The best thing about the songs they make is the raw emotion they manage to evoke. I don't feel emotion as deeply as others, at least I don't think I do, but POTF songs always make me feel. Best band ever.

  25. An older Bond, ready for retirement. The opening spread, this song over a montage of Bond playing Baccarat in numerous casinos over numerous years, numerous women on his arms – in his rooms dead or otherwise – afterwards. It would be epic.
