The Lyrics

On July 14th, 2003, the bank I work for was robbed. I was in the lobby when the two guys ran in. One had a pistol, and he moved towards the counter to grab all the money. The other had an AK-47. I know this because he aimed it right at me when he told us to get on the floor. They were gone in 90 seconds, and no one was hurt. They haven't been caught yet, though, and I'm sure the scars of stress will linger around for me and my co-workers for a long time. Can you say Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome? Well, welcome to my therapy...
Robber of mine
Tell me why you cause fear
You know I just closed my eyes
My safe world disappeared
Robber of mine
Send me back to the day
When I was still na´ve and cool
Before you aimed your AK

I remember my desk
Watching the clock
I loved it when the time flew by
But then you made it stop
You told us not to move
You told us not to speak
You took away our place to hide
That makes it all so bleak

Robber of mine
Tell me how did it go
You had our lives inside your hand
But you did not seem to know
Robber of mine
Tell me what do you see
When you look down at your stolen cash
From the last robbery

I was doing my job
Doing all that I could
It wasn't easy for me to hit the floor
When I saw your black hood
You put us all in danger
With a for a handful of bills
I still don't understand it now
And I guess I never will

Someone just robbed the bank
Someone just robbed the bank
Then they ran away
Someone just robbed the bank
Then they ran away
Someone just robbed the bank

Someone just robbed the bank
Someone just robbed the bank
Then they ran away
Someone just robbed the bank
Then they ran away
Someone just robbed the bank

Robber of mine
Tell me why you cause fear
I just closed my eyes
And the world disappeared
Robber of mine
Tell me how do you sleep
With the people that you terrified
Was the money that sweet?

Now I'll never feel safe
Now I'll never be the same
I will always have fear inside
I will always be lame
But I'm a grown man
With a wife of my own
And I swear I'm going to still be strong
After all your money's blown

Then they ran away
Someone just robbed the bank
Then they ran away
Two guys just robbed the bank
Then they ran away
Somebody just robbed the bank
Then they ran away
Somebody just robbed the bank
Then they ran away...
