        I'm lovin' this song but thought the lyrics were so weird.  I asked my 10yr old what he thought and he said he thought the song was about a school shooting (how sad is that).  I did some lyric readings and research.  

        Listen to the song and read the lyrics.



        I think it's about a disturbed kid going on a killing spree.
        Pumped Up Kicks are a brand of air Nikes which would signify what the 'cool' kids wear and..you better run faster than my gun/bullets... can't be done so he's almost playing with them.

        He finds a gun in his dads closet with other 'fun stuff'.  I'm thinking fun stuff is porn, drugs, ammo, etc.  

        Is he smoking a cigarette or joint?  

        Dad's working late again; which most likely means he stopped at the bar and got drunk.  Dad's got a big surprise; most likely a beating.
        When he pulls the quick trigger, did he kill his dad and then head to school?

        Brilliant how the song lets who know when he slips into some kind of pyschosis and starts talking to his cigarette about the hair on fire.  


        To have such powerful lyrics to a groovy type song is amazing.  How many times have I sat in my car bobbing my head up and down when the song is about something so awful.
