Pink Floyd - Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun Lyrics




Little by little the night turns around
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotus's lean on each other in yearning
Over the hills a swallow is resting
Set the controls for the heart of the sun

Over the mountain watching the watcher
Breaking the darkness, waking the grapevine
Knowledge of love is knowledge of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine

Set the controls for the heart of the sun
The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun

Witness the man who waves at the wall
Making the shape of his question to Heaven
Whether the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving?

Set the controls for the heart of the sun
The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun

  3. andrei quaresma

    Memorável. Descobri em uma entrevista que eles se aplicavam de tal forma que queriam ser perfeitos em sua execução .

  4. Смелый Русский

    Очень круто

  5. Ho Fla

    Great rendition! I do only know the old version, published in the Seventies.


    This looks like filmed yesterday, so beautiful.

    PINK FLOYD... THE BEST..

  8. Roger Thornhill

    I love Pink Floyd and the great variety in their repertoire. Difficult to tell which is my favourite song, and I probably don't need to think about it and give myself a headache, but this live interpretation of "The Set" is definitely one of them. Great lyrics, great band achievement what else ? I've listened to it merely 10 times in a row which is something I rarely do in music

  9. Kirley Kirley

    Blow sir Paul McCartney pink floyd should have been the top act

  10. Thayer Mann

    From this to "money" Dark side of the moon was a good album but a mundane Pink Floyd album.

  11. heady

    this is magic!!!!!! speechless!!!! crazy!!!!! wonderful and heaven!!!!!!!!!

  12. Zeljko Bedenikovic

  21. Rudy Day

  22. miux

    Drum overdose.

  23. Ben Vasilinda

    The original song had all 5 members singing on the song and it’s the only one they ever all sung on together. Makes this song pretty important in PF history.

  24. Raphael Fritzler

    I remember the first time seeing this movie... it was more than just an lsd experience. Thank you.

  25. jonnyenglish1973

    Went to pompeii today .. there is a floyd exhibition..but i have to say this music is just fucking wierd..and all you folks out there that think its genius are also ficking wierc..im listening to this via my power beats 3 and its just painful on the ears..im gonna try another track but this is really pretty shit

  26. Kalliopi Dananaki

    It gets always creepy and mystic when Roger sings.... i f.... love this man <3

  27. Bruce Lee 7

    HAKKI BLUOYD

  28. Robin Potter

    Thanks for posting, I picked the right video of this song. Those eyes on the woman from Pompeii look like they're staring into you. Poor people.

  29. vietdroid

    It's just me or this song sounds like Tool?
    Better: doesn't Tool sound like this song?

  30. Alice in Chains LS 4

    You do not find the music, the music finds you.

  31. Joseph Mohalok

    You tube sucks with so many adds

  32. Joseph Mohalok

    2 adds really ! Omg

  33. Andres Jimenez

    En los 60 podian sonar muy extraño pero si analizas bien no es algo que cualquiera con un buen sintetizador y una bateria no pudiera hacer. Lo que sucede es que si le pones Pink Floyd a cualquier improvisaxion o ensayo ya dicen que es grandioso.

  34. mouna mejri

    My godness this song can't explain this feeling !! My drug band can't get enough ...

  35. SpaghettiKillah

    I went out on a date with a chick and this came on the radio. I stopped the car and started to listen...she asks what the fuck is this ?
    I asked her: where would you like me to drop you off honey? 🤣🤣
    I could tell there's no fucking way I can have a meaningful relationship with this person 😂

  36. Dd Stois

    Les dieux des dieux

  37. Ben new land

    From 2000 A.D no Modern rock bands have artistic talent to play like this. They only love to play and sing hip hop songs, pop songs, party songs.

  38. Scott Oswald

    Thanks 🤔 to my brother 👊 for some 🤔 of my music 🤔!!!!

  39. Marcelo Costa

    PUTA QUE PARIIIU

  40. Chandra Kristian

  42. Luis Hernandez

    Wuau simplemente pink Floyd 2019 y sigue siendo lo más chingon

  43. BeefheartLynch

    I love Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun. It's one of my favorite early Floyd songs. This Pompeii version is stunning, but I give the slight nod to the live Ummagumma version. Just a really great post Syd piece, lyrically great and musically strong.

  44. George B

    Ingenious band

  45. Hyennus Squatch

    This is why i worship Pink Floyd :)

  46. Arturo Lopez

    The best. Their style is extremely different to others Band. The soundeffects & other weird sounds that you can hear just like that you are flying or walking in the outer space.

  47. tanish sood

    "Set the (YouTube) controls for the start of the next Pink Floyd song"! Think I'll go for "Echoes"😊

  63. Kevin Rittenhouse

    One thing I noticed, Roger loves that gong

  64. abdennour elhadda

  70. misterjohn john

    I leteratly said out loud at the end on the big scream around 7 minutes or so "fucking hell Roger"

  71. misterjohn john

    Not so much technology then, so creativity process is completely different from 2019.
    Which is best.
    With limitations one has to be creative.
    With so much choice, one can be too overwhelmed.
    I certainly prefer a human drummer, unless a machine is appropriate for the music.
    👍

  72. SLARIO

    6:27 they knew the score :)

  73. Enthalpia Entropia

    Genius ,....!

  77. Klaus Toth

    look into the eyes of the pompeiians. set the controls for the heart of the sun.

  78. Anonimo ??

  79. Strat BMX15

  83. Jimmy Smart

    Syd is on guitar even though he’s not in the video

  84. Fernanda Gonzalez

    La percusión de mason provoca algo tán bacan en el tema .

  85. Mark Stead

    Wow blatant paganism and I used to be so blissfully ignorant in my younger years. The butterfly the axe, the sun god, Janus and Pan a bit of everything Nice one Pink Floyd.. And, a Great song.I visited Pompey but I couldn't bring myself to look at those poor souls reaping the results as an ensample for us all..https://youtu.be/uuT_4XElXOU

  86. cool killer

    very snaky, dark, and mystic .. almost like a very evil conspiracy.. ah im amused !

  87. De Curval

  90. Johnny Bravo

    The greatest band ever to walk the Earth!

  91. gunnergrunt69

    Do you wonder what the ghosts of the people of Pompeii thought of this band of musicians playing in their ancient amphitheater?

  92. Nathan F. Cox

    I wish Tame Impala would cover this track. Just saying.

  93. Alicia Leighton

    Your set into the heart of the spell. So get your new spell up date. At your set .com=+

    ORGASMIC!

    "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun"

    Little by little the night turns around
    Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
    Lotus's lean on each other in yearning
    Over the hills a swallow is resting
    Set the controls for the heart of the sun

    Over the mountain watching the watcher
    Breaking the darkness, waking the grapevine
    Knowledge of love is knowledge of shadow
    Love is the shadow that ripens the wine

    Set the controls for the heart of the sun
    The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun

    Witness the man who waves at the wall
    Making the shape of his question to Heaven
    Whether the sun will fall in the evening
    Will he remember the lesson of giving?

    Set the controls for the heart of the sun
    The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun

  96. Scott Davis

    Another masterpiece by arguably the best band to form 🤷🏻‍♂️

  97. Puerto de Beethoven

    I once used the sun's gravity to sling shot back into time.
