Old Gods of Asgard - Take Control (Lyric Video)

"Take Control" is a song featured in Control performed by Old Gods of Asgard, the fictional counterpart of the band Poets of the Fall.


Take control

Take control

I see a vision rising, dreary

Fading in as children play, twilight games

In the town called Ordinary

An eye of light reveals a gateway to doomsday

In that projection of reality

Something passes through the stars, shifting walls

Enter agents of ill fantasy

For evil holds you in its arms, false alarms

[Reversed audio: Landing on the polar star and rushing on to the red room, find the cord to take you to a secret rendezvous.]

Illusory, treading on reality

Polaris in a web of hypocrisy

Take control

Take control

Oh, can't you see, see the light is fading?

And in the night the demons rage and call your name

No deeper madness than your own making

Visions lashing blades of shame, but will you take the blame?

Hissing noises in the hallway

Bloodshot eyes, staring through, what seeds are sown?

Who'll survive the blood-red power play?

Who'll take control, whose name will be known?

[Reversed audio: The diamond will tell you where; 1, 19, 7, 1, 18, 4, 9, 19 ("Asgard is")]

Illusory, reality's all fallacy

Polaris in a web of hypocrisy

Take control

Take control

I wish I'd had the wherewithal to find you when I had the chance

Instead I danced with death in fervor's skin

I missed the moment before the fall to recognize I had a voice

A choice to stop it all from happening

If only I could save you from the pain

A rising sense of awe and wonder

A might I see has always been deep within me

I can feel my inborn power

I call the shots when it's all finally clear to see

And so I'm drawn ever deeper

In the Oldest House and all these empty rooms

This vacant, spellbound mystery motel

Where I'm the keeper, where I set the rules

[Reversed audio: In their drunken fever states, see them both profoundly; the pyramid in the stone file becomes a spruce tree]

Potency is my new reality

Polaris living now inside of me

I control

I control

I control
