Memory: I saw his eyes move behind the mask of his face and flicker with delight at my fear. Without the words I couldn’t say beware of that one, he is danger.

Lesson: Trust your instincts. Even young, even innocent, you knew.

lyrics

There's a predator lurking
On the verge of being seen
And normally I wouldn't care
Cuz nothing frightens me
Except the predator pacing
Round the edge and marking me
Ostensibly I wouldn't flinch
But he's been haunting me

He's a predator
I know he's a predator

There's a predator sliding
Back and forth behind his eyes
That casually he tries to hide
But no one tells me lies
Even the predator waiting
For the offspring of the prize
That got away

He can't keep his desires at bay

His eyes will say
What his mouth will not give away
Predator
His eyes will say
What his mouth will not give away

Predator
I know he's a predator

A child is allowed to be innocent
When monsters stay under the bed
But she learns very soon
That outside the cocoon
Monsters can carry balloons instead

Predator

There's a predator standing
By the rudder of the boat
Sadistically he dips me into fear
To watch me float
Evade the predator whispering
So no one else can hear

I don't know why I know this
But I gotta get away from here

Run away
His eyes will say
What his mouth will not give away
Run away
His eyes will say
What his mouth will not give away

Predator
I know he's a predator
I know he's a predator
I know he's a predator
And he missed me by that much
