Houdini – Foster the People

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

Again again what they want to steal
Again again what they want to steal
Then again again what they want to steal
Again again what they want to steal

Broken Jaw – Foster the People

Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

I’ve broken every law
All the words come out my broken jaw
I don’t know anything
But then I act like I know everything

Don’t want to talk about it
What do you see when you dream about it?
I had been broke down from my enemies
I’m drifting farther from my memories

And then you take it away

Everyday I’m fighting ’cause I can’t read you
Lost in the moment, then I come back down
Lost in the sight I try to reach out
Just a little bit closer, then I come back down

You tell me, “What’s my name?”
I’m the same I’ve just been rearranged
Smile through a joke inside
Yeah, I’ve been hiding with nothing to hide

Don’t want to talk about it
What do you see when you dream about it?
I had been broke down from my enemies
Just holding a piece of what’s been left of me

And then you take it away

Everyday I’m fighting ’cause I can’t read you
Lost in the moment, then I come back down
Lost in the sight I try to reach out
Just a little bit closer, then I come back down

Pushing me, pushing me, I can feel it, yeah
Just a little bit higher, then I come back down
Climbing over people ’cause I’ve nothing
I’m waiting, I’m waiting around

Sometimes you find yourself waiting,
Waiting for someone to come around
And it’s hopeless, hoping to be found
Then it arrives and says, “You’re perfect, my love”
And I,
I know why
I know why
I know why

But you said, “I don’t know”

READ  Love - Foster the People

You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know, you don’t know” [x3]

You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”

So take it away, yeah
When you find and heal my broken jaw, yeah
Lyin’ near where I slayed my hero, yeah
What you need is hiding in yourself, yeah

Pumped Up Kicks – Foster the People

Robert’s got a quick hand.
He’ll look around the room, he won’t tell you his plan.
He’s got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth, he’s a cowboy kid.
Yeah, he found a six shooter gun.
In his dad’s closet hidden with a box of fun things, and I don’t even know what.
But he’s coming for you, yeah he’s coming for you.

[Chorus: x2]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Daddy works a long day.
He’ll be coming home late, he’s coming home late.
And he’s bringing me a surprise.
‘Cause dinner’s in the kitchen and it’s packed in ice.
I’ve waited for a long time.
Yeah the sleight of my hand is now a quick-pull trigger,
I reason with my cigarette,
And say, “Your hair’s on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.”

[Chorus: x2]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

[Whistling]

[Chorus: x4]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Pseudologia Fantastica – Foster the People

Say you in the morning it seems
As I could chop one of us seeking life in
Through words bend the teeth through the wall
I promised I would rid the world of feral animals

I see you smile with your feet up like a hero’s
We know you’re off to save your reputation
Strong and fearless in your breath just like a hero
Are you shopping in your though while you’re bleeding in the wind

Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my faith?
All the promises you made never realized
Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my strength?
All the promises you made never realized

Feel the air what you like
Another weekend massacre, your opinion
Don’t be afraid of the night, it’s a drag you have to call for me to survive

I see you smile with your feet up like a hero
We know you’re off to save your reputation
Strong and fearless in your breath just like a hero
Are you shopping in your though while you’re bleeding in the wind

Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my faith?
All the promises you made never realized
Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my strength?
All the promises you made never realized
