Foster the People - 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 takin me down as the prisoners riot

The shackles on my words are tied
Fear can make you compromise
Fasten up it's hard to hide
Sometimes I want to disappear

When I feel kinda plain and I'm in destress
I pass it off on ability
Well you got what you want what you never knew
It's a perfect gift from me to you

(Yeah yeah yeah)

The shackles on my words are tied
Fear can make you compromise
Fasten up it's hard to hide
Sometimes I want to disappear

(Raise up to your ability)
Never knew that I could find
Won't come with realize
I don't want to compromise

(Raise up to your ability)
Can't stand when I disappear
Runnin around 'cus I'm filled with fear
But I can't go 'cus my life's a wreck

(Raise up to your ability)
I know that you want me
Throw me into the sea
For my ability.

(Raise up to your ability)
You're still undecided
I just wanna leave you
But I don't wanna run away

Focus on your ability
Focus on your ability
Gotta focus on your ability
Focus on your ability

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

"Houdini" is a song by American indie pop band Foster the People from their debut studio album "Torches". Written by the group's frontman Mark Foster, the song was first released as a promotional single exclusively in the United Kingdom on April 1, 2011. The song was released as the album's fifth single on May 15, 2012. It is featured on the soundtracks for video games SSX and Sackboy: A Big Adventure and in the episode "Yes, Then Zero" of Gossip Girl. The song appeared in the 2012 film LOL. It also appeared in the TV shows Awkward and Suits. This song is a lyrical representation of Foster’s fears of rejection, and his fierce internal conversation on whether to experiment with his music or just to stick with what he knows, and get by on only his musical talent.
