“Medieval Warfare” – Grimes [Audio Single]

LYRICS

Grimes “Medieval Warfare” Lyrics

Baby I’ve been lookin’ for a diamond
I could never touch it and it shines like ice
Everything is written in the sky and
Baby you can have it if you say it nice
Come on, baby, let’s do somethin’ ugly
Somethin’ you would never touch yourself
Now let it bleed from me
I just wanna see it come out

Are you big? Are you ugly?
Can you kill a man with your hands?
Are you hot? Do you want me?
Think I don’t understand?

Baby I’ve been sleepin’ with a rifle
Shotgun, grapeshot, tryptophobe
Baby I got somethin’ you can stifle
Tie me, I won’t leave
Come on, baby, let’s do somethin’ pretty
Somethin’ you would never touch yourself
Just let it bleed from me
I just wanna make you come out

Are you big? Are you ugly?
Can you kill a man with your hands?
Are you hot? Do you want me?
Think I don’t understand?
Are you big? Are you ugly?
Can you kill a man with your hands?
Are you hot? Do you want me?
Think I don’t understand?
Are you big? Are you ugly?
Can you kill a man with your hands?
Are you hot? Do you want me?
Think I don’t understand?
Are you big? Are you ugly?
Can you kill a man with your hands?
Are you hot? Do you want me?
Think I don’t understand?

On Wednesday, Canadian indie pop artist Grimes premiered “Medieval Warfare,” her contribution to the soundtrack for the film Suicide Squad. Check it out above on Spotify.

Grimes pairs ethereal verses with a cloying, catchy chorus, featuring daring, superhero-themed lyrics like “Are you big? Are you ugly? / Can you kill a man with your hands?” The electronic track stars a trip hop-influenced beat and synth harmonies.

In an interview with Zane Lowe, Grimes addressed the challenges of an indie star writing music for a blockbuster, saying:

The pressure was pretty extreme… I kept getting caught up in, “Do you want it more weird or more normal?” So I made the end more weird and the beginning more normal.

Suicide Squad: The Album is available today on Amazon, and “Medieval Warfare” is also available as a single on Amazon.
