Me and kids would ride and listen to this song, not knowing the title or lyrics at first, and it was mesmerizing.

Now that I have finally found it, it is extremely 'hypnotic' and amazing. Apparently it's the hottest thing right now.

And rightfully so.....


When you read the lyrics, it will become quite obvious of the theme. Bullied kids-turned-shooters.

Ok....some of you are going to immediately write the song off, but from my research, the lead singer wrote to explain the mentality of some of these teen, namely Columbine.

Again, it is rather catchy and I promise you won' get it outta your heads


Lyrics:

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 of his mouth, he's a cowboy kid
He found a six-shooter gun
In his dad's closet with in 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
All the other kids with the 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'll be coming home late and 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've 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
All the other kids with the 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

Run run run run
Ru-ru-ru-run run run
Ru-ru-ru-run run run run
Ru-ru-ru-run run run ru-run run

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
All the other kids with the 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

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
All the other kids with the 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

I liked the song when it first came out, but the radio has really overplayed it. Then, the more I heard it, the more I realized it was simply repetitive. It has two verses, and the rest is just a repeat of the chorus. Songs that are catchy like this one do that quite often.

But also, songs that are catchy and simple will die faster than most other songs, at least in my opinion.

I hope not....

Its hauntingly addictive.... I think that yes, it is soooo hot that that it may be difficult to top this one....

but either way, I think the nation has come to LOVE it.

Kind of annoying.

i kinda like this song too. But yes, it is terribly overplayed on the radio. To me though, its one of those songs, that just gives me the feeling that the rest of the album is crap.
