Robin Hood Lyrics

When you’re starting to choke take some pills with your coke
It’s inspirational
When your life is a mess light one more cigarette
It’s so logical

Well it’s something your mother can’t abide
But it’s something that I freely prescribe

Take yourself for a ride
It never felt so good
As the night that you and I played Robin Hood
Stealing from the backrooms of my mind
Remembering a time when we were five
A time I thought we’d left behind

When your starting to cry
I’ll Come and sit by your side
I will love you so
And when nightmares come
I will try to be fun, even though;
I’m so scared you know

Well it’s something your mother can’t abide
But it’s something that I freely prescribe

Take yourself for a ride
It never felt so good
As the night that you and I played Robin Hood
Stealing from the backrooms of our minds
Stealing from a time when we were five
A time I thought we’d left behind

Stealing from the backrooms of our minds
Stealing from a time when we were five
A time I thought we’d left behind

When you’re starting to choke take some pills with your coke
It’s hysterical
