All the other kids with the pumped up kicks--

I really, REALLY love this song. I honestly think it's pretty damn creepy. I think it might be the fact that it's from the point of view of a homicidal teenager, but it has such a happy tune and fucking WHISTLING in the background. It gives such an inside look to the mind of the teenager who's pretty much lost their mind and is out for blood in his school, with a 'six shooter gun' riding on his hip.
The lines that absolutely shoot shivers down my spine (pretty much the whole second verse) are:
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 have lost your wits, yeah

The reason it freaks me out so much is because it relates to me so much. It's kind of terrifying.
It scares me because I don't want to be like, well, 'Robert.' The homicidal the song is talking about.
I don't think (I'm POSITIVE..hopefully) that I'll never lose my mind enough to open fire on my fucking school (okay, yeah, it'll never happen), but it still scares me. I don't know. It's a great song, very interesting lyrics, awesome beat, cool microphone filter. Just creeps me the fuck out.
