Houdini
Death Grips Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Three, four, fuck you, baby
Disjointed Houdini baby
Three, four, fuck you, baby
Disjointed Houdini baby
Three, four, fuck you, baby
Disjointed Houdini baby
Three, four, fuck you, baby
Disjointed Houdini baby
Music use us, fuck, who's this, what?
After before or does this just
Stay fucked, 'kay?
(Baby, disjointed Houdini baby)
Music use us, fuck, who's this, what?
After before or does this just
Stay fucked, 'kay?
(Baby, disjointed Houdini baby)

Arsenic liquid chrome
My carcass for my throne
VCR saliva
Smog China
Swiped, alright, alright
Alright, alright
Invasive clinical
Wayside at intervals
That don't stop
That okeydoke stroke slid into pine box
Bloated bullshit I must maim
Ever met a prick on a metro trip?
Get his hair did like a discotheque
Guess at the V make a simp sweat cheese
What you want to drink, can I need you yet?

Fuck is that, a hairstyle?
This asshole be at pussy church, first
Fuck is that, a hairstyle?
This asshole be at pussy church, first

Three, four, fuck you, baby
Disjointed Houdini baby
Three, four, fuck you, baby
Disjointed Houdini baby
Three, four, fuck you, baby
Disjointed Houdini baby
Three, four, fuck you, baby
Disjointed Houdini baby
Music use us, fuck, who's this, what?
After before or does this just
Stay fucked, 'kay?
(Baby, disjointed Houdini baby)
Music use us, fuck, who's this, what?
After before or does this just
Music use us, fuck, who's this, what?
(Baby, disjointed Houdini baby)

Wake up or flung 'cause I'm detonation
In your head, boom I spray like girl who whip her device
Fuck a warning, that bores me
I'd rather get blazed, I detest you always
Come test me, fucks get sliced
Caught a tiny cougar even she don't wet
Dick get left but he leave real slow
Typical no clue he don't grow
Official "fuck-no" with a capital hoe
Wack hoes wanna piece so a bitch pose
Pack of putos got me rollin' up my windows

Fuck is that, a hairstyle?
This asshole be at pussy church, first
Fuck is that, a hairstyle?
This asshole be at pussy church, first

Music use us, fuck, who's this, what?
After before or does this just
Stay fucked, 'kay?

Stay fucked, 'kay?

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Death Grips's song "Houdini" are notoriously cryptic and difficult to fully unravel. However, there are some themes and motifs that can be interpreted. The song seems to be about the power dynamics at play within the music industry and the ways in which musicians can feel used and manipulated by those who control the industry. The repeated line "music use us" suggests a sense of exploitation, while the references to Houdini and other images of subversion and escape hint at a desire to break free from these constraints.


The lyrics also touch on violence and aggression, with references to arsenic and slicing up "fucks." This could be seen as a reaction to the frustrations that come with feeling trapped and powerless in the music industry. The final lines about "music use us, fuck, who's this, what?" suggest a sense of confusion and uncertainty about how to navigate this space and whether it's even worth it.


Overall, "Houdini" is a complex and enigmatic song that deals with themes of power, control, and rebellion in the music industry.
