Upbeat Song, Dark Lyrics

Elloo peeps!

Its time to chill with some cool tunes again!

So ditch those petty work you're doing and lets rock to this tune.

Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People....




I cant get this song out of my head... LOL so this song is officially the Song of the Week I guess... Hahaha~

Cool song kan? But do u understand the lyrics? It took me few times to actually get it coz the way the singer sang it was kinda slurry... So in the end i had to look it up online...

~*******~
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 six shooter gun.
In his dads 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.

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, 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 slight 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.

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.

Haha pretty dark eh? Rumour has it this song is about the Westroads Mall Shooting. But as explained by the band its actually written from the perspective of a troubled kid. Its to create awareness about gun violence & all. Cool leh?

I'm kinda addicted to this song right now. Cant stop humming to it since the first time I heard it. Now everyday I must listen to this song. Its like a drug that made me go high... XD This song literally made me wanna dance.... XD thats very RARE!

Hahaha so thats it for this post... I wanna continue grooving to this song ^__^

Audios Amigos~
