Alanis Morissette – Predator Lyrics

Predator Lyrics – Alanis Morissette

First I am spotted across the room
Sussed out for the degree of naïveté
When I make the cut then all systems go
And you take your first step toward me

My eyes are invitations
My welcome sign is bright
My armor is porous enough to be worked by your design
My honesty’s commendable but won’t pull your heart strings
This magnet for predators is dying to be discerning

Your system of madness to mimic connection
Then you engender my trust as you pounce
You isolate and then divert attention
Distract from deception, keep me in the dark

My eyes are invitations
My welcome sign is bright
My armor is porous enough to be worked by your design
My kindness is commendable but won’t pull your heart strings
This magnet for predators is trying to be discerning

You kept me off balance with your charming deflection
You kept me distracted, couldn’t pick this apart
What started as union turned to isolation
And you are obsessed with your prey

My eyes are invitations
My welcome sign is bright
My armor is porous enough to be worked by your design
My trusting is commendable but won’t pull your heart strings
This magnet for predators is learning to be discerning
