lyrics

Verse 1
You could call him a hero
Or call him a thief
Guess it depends
On who you believe
Took from the rich
Gave to the poor
Seldom find his kind anymore

Look around
for his merry men
Where have they gone
Will he find them when
He comes around
To balance the scales
Or will they claim their hands bound

Chorus
Robin Hood will you awake
Is your spirit dead or just on break
Think I know what you would do
Are you real? I fear you’re fake

Verse 2
Thunder and lightning
Part of a storm
No matter the time
Can be bad form
Take from the poor
Give to the rich
Seems we’ve wandered through that door

Money’s the grease
That rides the wheels
Progress and growth
But I can feel
Roughening ride
As money pools
Out of the center and on the wrong side

Bridge
Robin Hood name of a rose
Sweet of scent with thorns that grow
From the stem that we hold
Two edged sword
Raise or fold

Verse 3
Money likes money
Know this is true
History shows me
Clings to a few
Take from the rich
Give to the poor
Money will go back out their door

Outro
Robin Hood to me opaque
Is your spirit dead or just on break
Hard to know what I should do
Am I real? Or just a fake
