Best 'Meaning ' of this BEAST song ^.^ ( in my opinion ) again thanks to everyone :D

Yeah it's about a kid who's teased and not as fortunate as the "other kids with the pumped up kicks." The part where it says dad's coming home with a surprise....yeeahh pretty sure the surprise isn't something pleasant. Guy's got a crappy life & jerk family so he's shootin'. I personally find it amazing that this is the general idea yet it sounds so happy.

This songs about robbie hawkin who brought a gun to a mall and shot 9 people including himself after his parents neglecting furthermore kicking him out, his dad would beat him when he was little. wrote a note to family/friends, brought a revolver to the mall. "He'll look around the room" he went to the 3rd floor and shot randomly. "He wont tell you his plan" only told them in the note saying he will become famous and the cowboy stuff means he's having fun with the idea of how cool it will be.

This song is not about Robert Hawkins of the Westroads Mall shooting in Omaha. Robert was long estranged from his parents and lived with friends. The people he chose to open fire on were mostly middle-aged people over 40's with only Maggie Web (24) remotely close to his age (19). Robert also wasn't a loner, which the cowboy characteristics refer to (six shooter, cigarette, etc). This song is about isolation and a kid losing it and Foster is recalling the killer's perspective.
