Predator

 

Lost in the canyon

Waiting for the moon to rise

Misunderstanding

The far off distant cries

 

There’s a black crow on a hanging branch giving you an evil look

Something stirring in the dead of night and it wants whatever you took

 

Chorus:

The wind’s about to change

There’s a haunted cloud coming your way

Oh you can't escape your fate

You’re finding out too late

The predator just became the prey

 

Darkness surrounding

And now you're running in place

Heart is pounding

In your eternal chase

 

Your shadow falls behind somehow there's no end in sight

It's you and you alone for now your fears echo through the night


Chorus

There in an instant

Reflection comes alive

We’re all a victim

Of our own disguise

 

Chorus

And the winds, they’re gonna change

And that haunted cloud, is well on its way

Oh you can't escape your fate

You’re finding out too late

The predator just became the prey
