SamGamez: Houdini musical talent? He was a EscapeArtist In the late 1800s early 1900s
this song has nothing to do with Houdini! Feel free to tell me.
Nick C.: How cun this videeo how ovr 20 mileun vuus when therez onlie 7 THOWsind
people in the wurld?
Keisha Taylor: Did he say "pickleing me down is a prisoners right"??? WOAH OK LOL!
Phil Lauritzen: What does this have to do with Houdini?
Maya W: Alright, guys, here goes another crazy illuminati theory....
So, let's start from the beginning:
1. FTP is trying to escape the illuminati. "That's crazy!" you're probably
saying and/or thinking right now. Or maybe if you're from the UK you're
saying, "That's a bloody mess!" That's exactly what I'd say if someone
tried to toss my favorite band into a fictional tank of Satan worshipers.
Ouch. For the record, I love FTP, so this is as painful for me as it is for
those of you who are reading it.
2. Okay, so for illuminati escaping proof:
1. The video. In the beginning of the video, the members of FTP are
dressed plainly. Navy blue, dark, plain colors and clothes. Nothing
special. Okay. No big deal. So then their stage equipment falls on them and
kills them. Double ouch. So now they're dead. They can't think, can't make
decisions for themselves, anything. They're dead.
2. A mysterious Asian-looking man is brought into the picture, and him
and his little band of suited men jump in to handle the situation. There's
a concert soon, and they can't just cancel it. The Asian man and his little
band get to work on FTP. They dress up in all black and begin... wait for
it... wait.... TO CONTROL THEM. Coincidence? I. Think. Not.
3. Alright, so FTP is no longer in control. They can't decide what they
want. They've been taken over by this mysterious band of Asians. They're
turned into robots (note the wires and all inside of Mark's face at 1:30 )
Thanks to these people, they get super famous and glitzy (note the clothing
change at 2:07 ).
4. His lyrics!
- Got shackles on, my words are tied: he's obviously saying he can't
do and say what he wants. When you're in the illuminati, you can't speak
out how you want.
- Fear can make you compromise: fear? fear of what? Getting in trouble
for saying things he shouldn't?
- Well you got what you want, and what you never knew: he got the fame
he was searching for. And also a host of other things he never wanted or
knew he'd have to face.
- Running around before it corners you: 'it'? What the heck is 'it'?
His ability? Nope. He's singing about focusing on your ability, so why
would he run FROM it?
- Then they can't get what they want to steal: 'They'? Kind of
ambiguous, isn't it?
5. And last but not least: the song title. Houdini was a famous what?
Like I said, I love FTP's music as much as the next gal, but hey...
