Foster The People - Houdini - Performance and Lyrics

Foster The People  - Houdini - Performance Music Video and Lyrics

Music, Music, Music, let's get back to the freaking music! As a music focused blog I have been lagging lately. News has been too good! This is definitely one of Foster The People's better songs. Actually now that I think of it it's prolly their best song ever. "Pumped up kicks" that was ehhhh, and then the other ones just don't have that hook or that appealing sound that this one does. I found myself able to run to this sweet and tasty jam even though it doesn't feel fast paced or up beat. It is hard to put into words but this baby rocks. I tried creating a Spotify radio station based of this song and what an epic FAILLLLLL. Spotify kept bring up music that was just not in line with what I thought  would be appropriate for this song. Overall I think this band is a great group of talented musicians and I would like to see them come out with some more bangers like "Houdini" from their album Torches.

Check out the inspiration for this song right here. Under writing and recording.

Here are the lyrics:
"Houdini"

Rise above, gonna start the war!
What you want, what you need, what'd you come here for?
Well, an eye for an eye and an 'F' for fight
They're taking me down as the prisoners riot

Got shackles on, my words are tied
Fear can make you compromise
Fasten up, it's time to hide
Sometimes I wanna disappear

Yeah oh

When I feel kinda bad and don't want to stress
Pass it off on a better day
Well you got what you want, and what you never knew
Perfect gift from me to you

Yeah yeah yeah

Got shackles on, my words are tied
Fear can make you compromise
Fasten up, it's time to hide
Sometimes I wanna disappear

Yeah oh

(It's up to your ability)
You never knew what I could find
What would come when we realize
I don't want to compromise

(It's up to your ability)
Yeah I'm scared but I disappear
Running around before it corners you
I can't go because my life's a wreck

(It's up to your ability)
I know that you want me
'Cause it's simple to see of my ability

(It's up to your ability)
Yeah you're undecided
Yeah it's the right feeling
Yeah I don't wanna runaway

You gotta focus on your ability
Focus on your ability
Now focus on your ability
Focus on your ability

Gain again what they want to steal
Gain again what they want to steal
Then gain again what they want to steal
Gain again what they want to steal
