15. Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks

Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks

Nok sangen, som startede min lidt anderledes musiksmag. Pumped Up Kicks har altid været et hit for mig. Den har en positiv lyd, men sangens tekst er virkelig negativ. Altså sørgelig. Men den rytme og instrumenterne giver den en slags positiv forfalskning. For man kommer jo i en god stemning af sangen og smiler af rytmen, men når man læser teksterne minder det mere om en tragisk historie. Men det er, hvad musik kan gøre. Det kan skjule selv de tragiske historie med positiv rytme. Ligesom i virkeligheden. Folk kan være helt ødelagte inden i, men have e positiv facade på. Pumped Up Kicks er mere end hvad man bare tror. Og derfor er den god.

 

"Yeah the sleight of my hand is now a quick-pull trigger."

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 dad's closet, in the 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 better run, better run, outrun my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet

Daddy works a long day
He 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 sleight of my hand is now a quick-pull trigger
I reason with my cigarette
Then say, "Your hair's on fire, you must've lost your wits, yeah?"

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You 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, run, run, run

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet
