Poets Of The Fall - Balance Slays The Demon Lyrics




(Deep in the ocean of darkness
In the mirror of light
Balance becomes a stranger
And in your fantasies
He rides a storm on your peace

Beyond the shadows he settled for more
There is a miracle illuminated)

Deep in the ocean of darkness
In the mirror of light
Balance becomes a stranger
And in your fantasies
He rides a storm on your peace
Wake up and smell the danger

Ever the light casts a shadow
Ever the night springs from the light

In the end, it's never just the light you need
When balance slays the demon, you'll find peace
In the end, it's never just the dark you seek
When balance slays the demon, you'll find peace
Find the peace!

(Beyond the lake he called home
Lies a deeper darker ocean green)

Like an evil twin, feel it scratching within
Like an insane sovereign ranger
And his beautiful face with his leathery lace
So can't you see the play he's staging?

Ever the light casts a shadow
Ever the night springs from the light

In the end, it's never just the light you need
When balance slays the demon, you'll find peace
In the end, it's never just the dark you seek
When balance slays the demon, you'll find peace
Find the peace!

([Reversed:] "It will happen again, in another town, called Ordinary")

In the end, it's never just the light you need
When balance slays the demon, you'll find peace
In the end, it's never just the dark you seek
When balance slays the demon, you'll find peace
Find the peace!

(Screaming, new darkness descends on this frail frame
I drown in fathomless black space, will I never scratch the depths of this domain?
I see not, yet nothing could be worse then the shades my mind calls herein
Alone, in my own wake the unraveling of reasons schemed)

  1. mark0 Yo

  2. Chance Brunson

    Found this on spotify listened to it while I was fighting the stranger on god of war just got a ps4

  3. Gabriel Vergilio

    Mais algum BR aqui?

  4. Lu1z 4 3v3r And the voices

    "From beyond the lake he called home
    Lies a deeper, darker ocean green"
    Wait a sec... Was that Zane's poem?

  5. phaeton01

    its like a heavy metal jeff wayne

  6. Mateusz Makowski

    I guess we could all now use a game where Jess and Alan are both playable characters and work in a co-op mode. How about that?

  7. Oxide Overdose

    3:45
    "It will happen again, in another town, called Ordinary"

  8. Christmas Crustacean

    This song is an object of power

  9. Christmas Crustacean

    this is the best OGOA song

  10. X-cessive Desperado

    Who would have thought YEARS LATER that a reversed message would tie into control and expand the Alan Wake lore. Strange times 😂

    Blank

    Wait, what are you talking about

    Kakuzen

    @Blank the latest game from Remedy, "Control" is based in the same universe as Alan Wake. They even have a song from Old Gods of Asgard in it as well, called "Take Control". The main character of Control is from a town called Ordinary, where weird crazy supernatural/paranormal/whatever shit is happening. Who would have thought they'd hide the hint toward it this far back? Lmao

  11. Mini Celeste

    That Yngwie style solo is to die for <3

    penyuwan

    That's olli tukiainen for you, lead guitarist of Poets of the Fall.

  12. Olveyn

    „Even the NIGHT SPRINGS from the light” omg

  13. Tekh09

    It did, in fact, happen again. In a town called Ordinary.



    Now you can take control.

  14. M D

    Reverse the song. At 3:43 theres a secret message hidden. It states, "It will happen again, in another town... called Ordinary." This us where Controls story comes in to Alan Wake.

  15. DevilGearHill

    I just did it guys. On Hard. First try. No Damage. On the observatory floors. While sitting down to continue the game since a long time after some smokin' on 4:20 precise.
    I'm a badass. And this game made me feel so. So it's badass too.

  16. Martin Larsson

    I wonder if Control was already planned at the time of this game, considering the reversed spoken part in this song. Ordinary is the name of the town in that game right?

    penyuwan

    This game started as Alan Wake 2, but due the IP owned by MS back than, It evolved into Control.

  17. The Actual Frozen Cactus ❄️

    This game has the best songs

  18. Ed by VekTor

    three thousand likes for a good song

  19. Cosmico Andromeda

  33. Troublechaser76

  34. Ethan Stapley

  35. TrojanFoxx

    Here's a GOG code for Alan Wake's American Nightmare for PC: VUG55FC138352559B7
    Go to https://www.gog.com/redeem/ to redeem it. It will expire on June 27, 23:59 CEST.

  36. David Sun

    HEAD BANGS!!!!!!!

  37. Vanspoor's VeePlays

    Shades of Ninja Sex Party, instrumentally. I'd like to hear Danny cover this.

  38. Lazy Dragon

    I just stumbled here and OMG epicness in the first opening seconds!

  39. Aku

    This is 2017.
    We want ALAN WAKE 2.
    TIME IS COME.

    Elixir Indigenous

    stop cribbing, play Control

    M D

    You got it. Its Control, it connects directly to Alan Wake. PROOF: at 3:43 in the song reverse it theres a secret message.

  40. Ibanez777

    Whole band is awesome but the guitarist and vocalist are so good

  41. Reinborn

    1:54 That's the first part of the poem Thomas Zane said in the original game to Alan at the beginning while Alan drifted to sleep! boi!! When I heard that in game, I had to look this song up to make sure I heard right.

    Julian

    Rein The start "Beyond the shadow you settled for, there is a miracle illuminated" Is also a quote from Thomas Zane that you can find on the giant Sun Dial at Cauldron Lake lodge (episode 4) :D

  42. Jennifer Hall

    truly amazing!!!!! i am finding a lot more songs

  43. chris weaver

    It will happen again, in another town, called Ordinary

    M D

    And it did... in Control

  44. Albert Stolz

    A perfect theme for Black Swordsman Arc of Berserk. (If it was made in the 80`s)

    Templar Knight

    They've been remaking the series with its latest anime version and its making a comeback in terms of a new game at the end of this month. Who knows, could still fit in well.

  45. Meg's Games And News

    Alan Wake grabbed me in a way that no other game ever has. It is by far my favorite game of all time. This song is awesome!

    Julian

    Scott Wolfe Agreed, I'm a huge fan and dream that we'll get Alan Wake 2 one day

    Meg's Games And News

    I can only dream of the day we see Alan Wake 2. Just an amazing game.

    M D

    P.S. Controp just came out and is connected to Alan Wake. In fact its continuing the story. Also at 3:43 theres a hidden message in this song if you reverse it.

    Zizan

    Same. Really want new game about him. *sad disappointment noises*

    Zizan

    @Julian the dream. The story in the original was extremely cool. AN finished the story, in the really sweet way.

  46. Sentinel White

    This is what happens when you let Barry do something hahahah

    G Studios

    Well, Barry has good taste.

  47. GmanLives

    0:29 sounds like riff from Angry Again by Megadeth

    Tony Favilla

    From what I'm reading here...you really had no reason to get angry. Should have forgotten about it. Now you seem foolish.

    Pekka Saarinen

    Gggmanlives posted really offensive reply to my first comment and then I just mimicked his style. He deleted the comment and that's why there's one post missing in between. Just like Tony Favilla is apparently talking to an imaginary person.

    Kevin Tablet

    @Pekka Saarinen fuck that lad I can read the full chat now


    You basically had a hissy fit for no reason and went mental. Over a guitar rift. That's like getting upset over not getting your favourite candy.


    In other words, you're a failure in life.

    Pekka Saarinen

    @Kevin Tablet Pray tell how you can read 'full chat' to see the deleted comments?

  48. Enzo porretta

    My dad is the voice of aka wake

  54. ukz carmines

    great song i got all the gamerscore on this game :D

  55. roar880

    I want a part deux! Poets of the fall, (old guards of asguard) kick ass!

  56. Drama Tv Brasil - Animações 3D

    When Alan slays the demons, you'll find peace :v

  57. sebastianwillows

    Alan slays the Demon! :D

  58. Łukasz Kurkowski

    BANGER!

  59. gametron59

    An underrated spin off to an underrated game, and I love the soundtrack In both games!

  60. istvan kenyeres

    My favorite band! Ladies and gentleman, Poets of the Fall! I have all of their albums, OMG they are so good!

    Shadow Knight

    istvan kenyeres they are really good except this is not poets of the fall

    AdriiPing

    oh man it is.

    wboone3

    Cryptid undead It actually is though.

    chiffmonkey

    OGoA are a fictional band in the Alan Wake universe, but really it's Poets of the Fall.

  61. PS4NextGenGamer

    "It will happen again, in another town, a town called Ordinary."

    mjolnir112

    @VegasBEAR There were incidents in the 70s in bright falls which involved the old gods of asgard

    VegasBEAR

    @mjolnir112 I know but this is a new song happening after ordinary

    Ryan Resendez

    @VegasBEAR hey you're not supposed to look at those plotholes, get away from there.

    sebastianwillows

    @VegasBEAR But the old guards weren't making songs during Alan Wake. "Again" most likely refers to Thomas Zane awakening the darkness.

    mjolnir112

    @sebastianwillows This is from American Nightmare, where Barry was the Old Gods manager a couple of years after Alan Wake happened. Though how much of American Nightmare is canon is anyone's guess.

  62. Cavedweller7700

    This moment obviously tried to recapture the glory of the one Alan wake scene (oh, you know which one). While it may not have reached that apex of epicness, it was pretty awesome and I loved the reference.

    Ken Proctor

    Control has a new song from Old Gods of Asgard that gets used in a way that just as awesome. Heck, it might even top the concert from Alan Wake.

  63. Carl Moreton

    its over 9000!!!

  64. grarghov1

    This is something makes your head bang even in the middle of utter desperation

    It is far the best of the 80s mood songs written in the 21st century, even beating Steel Panther :)

    Eric Johnson

    +grarghov1 Why do people call it, the 21st century it's 2015, 2115

    grarghov1

    +Eric Johnson actually years are considered natural numbers where zero does not represent any value, it represents the lack of value.

    So there was no "zeroeth" year, 1 AD followed 1 BC, not 0 AD :)
    and it is the same reason that the period from 1 AD to 99 AD is called the FIRST century, not the "zeroeth". So the period between 2000-2099 is the 21st century :)

    Eric Johnson

    No I'm still going with twentieth.

    Irradiated Phenix

    +Eric Johnson so you're stupid

    G Studios

    I really don't care what century we end up in, i'l never change, and i'm one of the few people that can actually say that and stick to it.

  65. Thomas Cahyuti

    So we've switched from Stephen King-esque horror to 80's action flick...

    Which is AWESOME.

    jarrod nash

    Thomas Cahyuti so basically from a Steven king novel to a Steven king movie?

    Shadow Knight

    Thomas Cahyuti nothing wrong with that

    Jeremy Roberts

    So they went from In the Mouth of Madness to They Live?

    Elixir Indigenous

    yeah so good news, the Alan Wake sequel was just released....only under a different name. It's called Control. So guys, the backwards message here says "it will happen again in another town, a town called Ordinary". The protagonist in Control is from a town called Ordinary, where reality was altered very similar to in Bright Falls.

    Lu1z 4 3v3r And the voices

    @Elixir Indigenous It's not a sequel, it's a different game, granted it has a connection to Alan Wake, but we don't actually play as Alan or actually have any connection to the story, the evidences (Aka the manuscript page and the reports about some of the characters) are just some kind of teaser, teasing us for the eventual release of Alan Wake 2

  66. themanclaw2

    Love how Barry was like, 'Gonna make this all 21'st century,' ... Song sounds like 80's metal (not that that's a bad thing).

    Spider Jerusalem

    Barry was the true hero of the game for producing this song.

    Shadow Knight

    carlos martinez he didnt

  67. Slowbravic

    Jesus fucking christ this song kicks ass............must...metal.........all the things...

  68. The travel of time

    is this their only song?

    Samuels Gr

    No, the name in the game (alan wake) are old gods of asgard but their real name is poets of the fall and have a lot of good songs. :D

  69. Channel123

    It sounds like something straight off a 80s movie soundtrack, which is kind of awesome. 

  70. bj ja

    They should do the prequel about the story of the old gods of asgard fighting the darkness, that would be bad ass

    David Sun

    Holy shit that's a great idea !

    G Studios

    David Sun  I'd buy that, great idea, btw.

    Cosmico Andromeda

    Agree, i played the game back in 2013 and i thought that would be cool
    I've been playing it again (ty Humble Bundle) and i think it's now a cooler idea

  71. The Lovely Penguin

    "It'll happen again, in another town, a town called 'Ordinary.'" That's the reversed part.

    Darth Thel

    So I'm playing Control right now, just started but the protagonist is from a town called Ordinary where something happened.

    uiki

    @Darth Thel oh, you'll find WAY more than that..

    brio man.

    ya estaban haciendo control desde 2012, sin duda remedy es genial

    M D

    Ok how the hell did you know that?

    Zizan

    @Darth Thel don't get ur hopes up. This game is more of the SCP foundation then Alan Wake. So yeah.

  72. Omni

    I had to stop playing the game to listen to this song on the radio. Holy shit its good.

  73. Zero Stas

    What If I told you this -> B(alan)ce

    JKPOrigins

    @Zero Stas Haha! Awesome.

    DevilMaster

    What if I told you this: "Ever the NIGHT SPRINGS from the light".
    And this: "Like an evil twin, feel it SCRATCHing within"

    RyoRapture

    XD.... Awesome observation Love it

    Keven Rivera

    @Zero Stas *hits blunt*
    Whoa, you just opened my third eye... 😂😂😂

  74. leohpndbz

    Looks like ozzy osbourne and van halen.

    Audrey B

    I assume you already know that the real band is Poets of the Fall, but yeah, when I first played the first game I thought the vocals on "Children of the Elder God" sounded EXACTLY like Ozzy, to the point where I had to google if it was him or not.

  75. Андрей Ерофеев

    Deep in the ocean of darkness
    In the mirror of light
    Balance becomes a stranger
    And in your fantasies he writes a storm on your peace

    Beyond the shadow you settle for
    There is a miracle, doom belated

    (Song)
    Deep in the ocean of darkness
    In the mirror of light
    Balance becomes a stranger
    And in your fantasies he writes a storm on your peace
    Wake up and smell the danger

    (Chorus)
    Ever the light cuts the shadow
    Ever the night springs from the light

    In the end
    It’s never just the light you need
    When balance slays the demon
    You’ll find peace

    In the end
    It’s never just the dark you seek
    When balance slays the demon
    You’ll find peace

    Find your peace! Oh YEAHHH!

    (Opening Voice)
    Beyond the lake he called home
    Lies a deeper, darker ocean green

    (Song)
    Like an evil twin
    Feel it scratchin’ within
    Like an insane sudden rangin’
    And his beautiful face with his leathery lace
    So can’t you see the play he’s staging?

    (Chorus)
    Ever the light cuts the shadow
    Ever the night springs from the light

    In the end
    It’s never just the light you need
    When balance slays the demon
    You’ll find peace

    In the end
    It’s never just the dark you seek
    When balance slays the demon
    You’ll find peace

    Find your peace! OH! YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH! AH!

    (Chorus)
    In the end
    It’s never just the light you need
    When balance slays the demon
    You’ll find peace

    In the end
    It’s never just the dark you seek
    When balance slays the demon
    You”l find peace

    Find your peace! OH YEAH!

    (Voice)
    Screaming, new darkness
    Descend on this frail frame
    I drown in fathomless black space
    Will I never scratch the depths of this domain?
    I see not, yet nothing could be worse
    Than the shades my mind calls herein
    Alone, in my own wake
    The unraveling
    Of reasons schemed

    Spartan Prime

    yes, fluttershy had to be the one to post the lyrics for this song, it's TOO badass for her! XD XD

    Fenix92

    Thank's a lot ^_^

  76. Mc Gowan

    who else thinks post of the fall should tour under old gods of asgaurd?

    Aren

    Would be absolutely great, but I think they'd need a bit more material under that name. Since there's only three songs, and all.

    G Studios

    Aren Harper Would be sick, a Norse themed metal band would be badass in general.

  77. Mr. Meeseek

    OH.. MY.. GOD I LOVE THIS SONG!!!

  78. OrochiBorgieman

    That backwards message at 3:44

  79. killersheaven82

    Alan Wake is one of my favourite games of all time, i have all achievements in that game. And i get all achievements only in games i enjoy the most. Alan Wake is one of these games, i hope they announce a Alan Wake 2 for the XBOX One. Common Remedy release Quantum Break, announce a Alan Wake 2 and everything will be OK.

    M D

    You got it. Control is directly connected to Alan wake. PROOF: 3:43 in the song theres a secret message reverse it to hear it.

  80. Jake Fass

    When balance slays the demon, you'll find Pete. FIND THE PEEEEETE.

  81. Mark Larsen

    Just finished American Nightmare, yeah 2 years late.  But this song mesmerized me.  What a rush this song was, vintage mid-late 80s metal sound.  Loved it!

  82. MrOSUrocker

    this song is so awesome!

  83. MrSolarGames 2.0

    I felt the power of this song!!

    epiclepticgs

    This song pumps me up like nobody's business.

    Zero Stas

    Songs are like manuscripts, holds great power!

    Shadow Knight

    epiclepticgs its supposed to

    G Studios

    Well, that's heavy metal for ya, you're suppose to feel its power, and respect the stories it tells.

  84. Gurlui Octavian

    Alan Wake was one of the best games from Remedy, even if they worked 5 years for it it worth it and i'm really sad Alan Wake's not remedy's next game, but i still cant wait for quantum break :)

    Spartan Prime

    This is the time developers should spend on games, because there are no bugs OR glitches in the game! Gameplay, story and graphics were perfect!

    lolusuck386

    @Gurlui Octavian Remedy hasn't made a bad game yet; first Max Payne and then Alan Wake. I'm looking forward to Quantum Break as well.

    Tsugako -Tekken

    and now they have everithing they need to make the sequel, got the rights, got the money, and got the liberty to do so, after their next game alan wake 2 will come

    Zizan

    Bad news bud, it ain't good, Control has more of the SCP-ish filling. So yeah. No true Alan Wake game for us.

  85. Deathbrewer

    I REALLY want Alan Wake 2 but I know they are busy on Quantum Break.. :(

    Deathbrewer

    @***** In Alan Wake they "confirmed" Alan Wake 2. They never completely killed it off, just moved onto Quantum Break next since Alan Wake didn't sell on the consoles well at the time, making it not an immediate priority(it sold a ton on the PC version when it finally came on). The sequel is unsure but not completely dead yet.. we'll see what happens once they have Quantum Break out and they can restrospectively look at how the actual value of the Alan Wake franchise is a lot higher than they gave it credit for,  particularly when properly released and marketed (no console exclusivity for 2 years killing your game).. But judging by them doing Quantum Break solely on the Xbox One with an exclusive deal... I'm scared too.

    epiclepticgs

    @***** Are you kidding? Financially it wasn't the best, but that's because a lot of people can't appreciate a good story line when they see one, everyone is so fixated on linear cod shit that they don't stop to pay attention to something that's actually good.

    Tom Leary

    @epiclepticgs Good eye seeing that story has become second fiddle to gameplay don't get me wrong gameplay is important but story is what is truly lacking these days even games that seem to have a solid story screw it up some where along the line (I am looking at you Mass Effect) I love Alan Wake it had a new plot gameplay was solid and was a lot of fun to see it all turn out at the end. Wish they would get around to finishing the story however the number of cliff hangers these days are getting on my nerves.

    epiclepticgs

    @Orion Mandrake *looks at valve*

    masako x

    alan wake basicly tanked because ms decided releasing it on the same month as red dead redemption

  86. Ryan Karolak

    The perfect song to get pumped up to when battling the darkness.

    Håkon

    My thoughts exactly :D

    Manu

    exactly! :D when this music came up when you were battling a horde of "takens" inside that telescope laboratory for the imaging array that moment was sick!love this game!

    DevilMaster

    "Taken" is invariable.

  87. The Sixth Account

    "You've got the touch" by Stan Bush would play when you beat him and then you would get an achievement called "Did you just punch out Cthulhu?" resulting in the greatest ending in videogame history.

  88. RedHazeBand

    this sounds old school as fuck poets should do more like this.

  89. Patzuu

    senkin fokktor :D

  90. fokktor

    You're welcome : 3

  91. grarghov1

    hehe...thought the same, sounds like an Ozzy song from his 80s solo era :)

    ask Randy Rhoads to cover it :)

  92. SyntheticSoul2000

    And then you woke up...

  93. grarghov1

    OMG

    i'm just listening to the song 6 times in a row

    PERFECT

  94. Vidcrate

    Check out my funny video including this song.

  95. WARTY

    ole hyvä! your welcome!

  96. Hale Hortler

    There should have been a finall showdown with Mr. Scratch to this song!
    The trap was cool and all, but I felt a little betrayed for not being able to kick his smug ass properly.

  97. Jak Daxter

    Yes indeed, epic it is.
