What I Know

from Reattachment by Dan Jacob Wallace

lyrics

robin hood
stole from everybody that he could
even from the poor ones when he could
that’s what i know

let them say what they want to
it’s ok, they’ll always love you
it’s nothing but a fancy form of hope
that their lives won’t always be sad

elizabeth
all she ever did was hold her breath
waiting for that man to take her hand
that’s what i know

let them thank who they need to
it’s ok: they’ll always need you
it’s just another fancy way to dream
that one day they all will be free

when it all comes down to you
you don’t know what to do with
all these things that they have given you
brother that’s the way this game’s always been played
though no one ever ever ever wins, no…

anyday, almost anytime or anyplace
you can find someone who’s got no face
it’s always been that way

let them be who they need to
it’s ok: they’ll always need you
it’s just a flight of fancy they still dream
that one day you all will believe

when it all comes down to you
you don’t know what to do with
all these things that they have given you
brother that’s the way this game’s all overplayed
though no one ever ever ever wins, no…
