Paroles officielles de la chanson "Pumped Up Kicks"

[Verse 1]
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 6-shooter gun
In his dad's closet
Hidden in a box of fun things
And I don’t even know what
But he’s coming for you
Yeah, he’s coming for you

[Hook]
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

[Verse 2]
Daddy works a long day
He be coming home late
Yeah, 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
Appears on Torches 1. Helena Beat 2. Pumped Up Kicks 3. Call It What You Want

The character in the song, Robert, is a manically depressed adolescent, who dreams of violence towards his classmates and peers.
This song details his plans and ambitions for a school shooting, and dives deep into the causes of his emotions.
Although this song is peppy and upbeat, Foster uses this to mask the true meaning of the song, and makes for a beautiful yet haunting composition.
