"Robin Hood" as written by Damon Minchella, Simon Fowler, Oscar Lloyd Harrison and Stephen Cradock....
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 I'm starting to cry
Come and sit by my 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

    General Commentits great! oh awesome song, it just talks about how everyone takes life so fucking seriously all the time, and if you just lit up a cigarette, and calmed yourself, everything would be fine and peachy

    MemoryJust good time when i was younger, i think that youth is indeed wasted on the young. Great song, fits nostalgia perfectly.

    General CommentRobin Hood is about Simon Fowler revealing he is riddled with the gay. The night he and someone else played Robin Hood and over course your mother cant abide.
