Poets of the Fall – Drama for Life (Official Video w/ Lyrics)


I’ve got this madman in my mind, this prolific designer and he’s working overtime and he gets all wired up Higher and higher as we fly, We’re Poets of the Fall Perfect, near fatal headlong dive A blueprint for life, blueprint your life Aggressively primal cultural high This mental Versailles is much grander than the lies You tell yourself to get through the night Sentenced to drama for life He tears a stampede through my head, wild and horny Just one chance to kill it dead, but I will embrace it Into the darkness on we ride, to gamble is all Perfect, near fatal headlong dive A blueprint for life, blueprint your life Aggressively primal cultural high This mental Versailles is much grander than the lies You tell yourself to get through the night Sentenced to drama for life If all the isms and doctrines of life were a gentle breeze instead of that usual judgmental freeze, would we all be as easily shanghaied to their cause, as now we seem to object every clause, and would we have the unerring nerve to go after our deepest desires with a similar verve, who would it serve Perfect, near fatal headlong dive A blueprint for life, blueprint your life Aggressively primal cultural high This mental Versailles is much grander than the lies You tell yourself to get through the night Sentenced to drama for life

  1. I so love their songs! A music that sweeps you away with it, with lyrics triggering ideas in your head and still not dictating what to dream of. Awesome work guys!! 🙂

  2. Why so underrated? I mean, a shaking ass Nicki Minaj gets billion of views…
    I lost my faith in humanity. POTF is one of the best band I've ever seen!

  3. The man inside is all twitchy and jittery, while the man on the scene is primarily characterized by the smooth, fluid motions, but occasionally they swap their roles for a brief moment, blurring the line between them.
    It's great.

  4. Marko's jacket and this whole song reminds me of John Simm's version of The Master and it just makes it 1000 times better (if that is even possible).

  5. Man, you guys should get sponsership so you can come perform in the US. I'd love to see you guys perform live. Shit… I'd buy VIP tickets!

  6. Crazy…
    The music of today speaks the absolute truth and nobody seems to get it
    Crazy crazy world
    You should wake up guys
    Just sayin

  7. Marko has such an amazing voice, and can be so expressive with his body, face and eyes, it's insane. This band, and Marko especially, are amazing!

  8. Kiitos !

  16. A prisoner, a fortune – telling machine in a carnival, an evil clown/jester, a mime, a robotic part of a machine with high functioning AI, a casino player dressed in "Bond" style, a gentleman from the old times, a ghost/madman in mind… And here I'm waiting patiently to the day I get to see this wonderful guy nominated for both a worldwide music award and an Oscar…

    What, asking for much? His talent deserves all awards in the world!

  22. I AM sentenced to Drama for Life. I took the 'PERFECT NEAR FATAL HEAD LONG DIVE'. IT IS MY BLUEPRINT FOR LIFE.

  23. 0.75 speed = easy to see the sped up bits of the video while still allowing the song to able to be listened to

  24. I AM THE Living Represenative of The Prolific Designer. I Took The Perfect near Fatal Headlong Dive at 5 years old. I AM communicating to You! Do You not Hear Me? I AM Deliberate to Your reason for being.

  25. Feel like there is darkness within You? Well, that darkness is The Brightness of Lucifer, Your Creator and Champion of Jesus. Why would Lucifer Champion Jesus? Simple, He's His SON.

  26. "This mental Versailles is much grander than the lies" gets me every time. I don't know if it's because I find some deep meaning in it or if I just adore the way he sings it or both.

  27. I've got this madman in my mind

    This prolific designer

    And he's working overtime

    And he gets all wired up

    Higher and higher

    As we fly

    We're Poets of the Fall

    Perfect, near fatal headlong dive

    A blueprint for life

    Blueprint your life

    Aggressively primal

    Cultural high

    This mental versailles

    Is much grander than the lies

    You tell yourself to get

    Through the night

    Sentenced to drama

    For life

    He tears a stampede through my head

    Wild and horny

    Just one chance to kill it dead

    But I will embrace it

    Into the darkness

    On we ride

    To gamble is all

    Perfect, near fatal headlong dive

    A blueprint for life

    Blueprint your life

    Aggressively primal

    Cultural high

    This mental versailles

    Is much grander than the lies

    You tell yourself to get

    Through the night

    Sentenced to drama

    For life

    If all the isms and doctrines of life were a gentle breeze instead of that usual judgmental freeze

    Would we all be as easily shanghaied to their cause, as now we seem to object to every clause

    And would we have that unerring nerve to go after our deepest desires with a similar verve

    Who would it serve?

    Perfect, near fatal headlong dive

    A blueprint for life

    Blueprint your life

    Aggressively primal

    Cultural high

    This mental versailles

    Is much grander than the lies

    You tell yourself to get

    Through the night

    Sentenced to drama

    For life

  28. Марко, с превеликим удовольствием ждём вас в России!
    Конечно, денег на ваш концерт у меня не будет: я простой учитель, но остальные фанаты, думаю, очень вас ждут!
    Спасибо за ваш труд!

  29. Anyone looking to understand the music of Poets of the Fall, look into the works of Carl Jung. The singer is the self, or ego. The "you" is the shadow, or id. Yes, that word in Show Me This Life was indeed "id-ly", not "idly", he didn't mispronounce it.

    Jung was diagnosed with psychosis, which he claimed actually helped him study the human psyche. Look at where Marko is in the video for Lift – Psycho Ward, managing to interpret the Rorschach tests while the examiners cannot. Another person made reference to, this time in Clearview/False Kings' chess imagery of the "Game of the Century", is Bobby Fischer – who potentially had a similar affliction (if that is even the right word), or at the very least was made reference to in the (highly Jung inspired) film Inception as being someone navigating within the mind.

    Jung also heavily relied on the work of the alchemists in laying out the symbolism he would use to describe the process of individuation, through the stages of Nigredo, Albedo and Rubedo. Black, White and Red. Go right back to the video for Late Goodbye. There are three cars in the video. Guess what colours they are.
