Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks [LYRICS]


From their Debutalbum: ‘Torches’!

! It’s still just a GREAT SONG, enjoy it guys and it’s definitely no problem to hear the song without heeding the lyrics!

It’s a catchy melody, but here you can see what the song is actually about. The lyrics were written to “bring awareness” to the issue of gun violence amongst youth, which he feels is an epidemic perpetuated by “lack of family, lack of love, and isolation”. (Mark Foster)

“Pumped Up Kicks’ is about a kid that basically is losing his mind and is plotting revenge. He’s an outcast. I feel like the youth in our culture are becoming more and more isolated. It’s kind of an epidemic. Instead of writing about victims and some tragedy, I wanted to get into the killer’s mind, like Truman Capote did in In Cold Blood. I love to write about characters. That’s my style. I really like to get into the minds of the characters.(Mark Foster)

Pumped Up Kicks = Really cool stuff like brand new shoes or expensive clothes etc.

Enjoy and have fun thinking about it!

    After all this time I never bothered listening to the lyrics of this song. Watched a Shotgun Boy video with this song where he dreams of pulled out a shotgun and killing all the bullies in his class. Only then did I actually listen to the lyrics and it kinda scared the crap out of me πŸ˜…

    For ALL have sinned and fallen short from the glory of God. We deserve hell fire. but the free gift from God is eternal life found in Christ Jesus. John 3:16 for God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son and whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life
