Mark Foster's hommage to disaffected American youth and their Second Amendment right to resolve adolescent angst definitively.
For the grownups "kicks" are sports shoes. Kids with "pumped up" kicks means the cool kids at high school who wear the latest cool gear and (legend tells us) make all the other highschooler's lives miserable.

What a charming little morality tale, complete with a stern message to the parents about their poor parenting skills.


Foster The People _Pumped Up Kicks_ (2010)

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 found a six shooter gun
In his Dad's closet with a box of fun things
I don't even know what
But he's coming for you yeah he's coming for you

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run better run
Outrun my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run better run
Faster than my bullet

Daddy works a long day
He 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
