"Don't Look To The Eyes Of A Stranger" as written by and Stephen Percy Harris....
Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Don't look trough the eyes of a fool
Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Somebody's watching when the light goes down

Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Don't look trough the eyes of a fool
Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Somebody's watching when the night comes down

Feel someone's watching you
You gotta get away
Is it the first time
You've ever felt this scared

Feel the adrenaline pump
Your heart begins to race
Begin to run now
The sweat runs down your face

Don't know which way to turn
You'd better hide yourself
He's getting closer now
You'd better improvise

Just hope you never reach
The point of no return
Could be the last time
You see the light of day

Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Don't look trough the eyes of a fool
Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Somebody's watching when the night goes down

Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Don't look trough the eyes of a fool
Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Somebody's watching when the light goes down

Don't look to, Don't look to
Don't look to the eyes of a stranger

Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Don't look through the eyes of a fool
Don't look to the eyes of a stranger
Somebody's watching when the light goes down

Don't look to the eyes of a stranger

    General CommentMaiden tried all kind of musical things in this song. Like short pauses before plummeting back into the song. Good song. Can't say I like the ending. Kinda rushed and sounds bad, in my opinion, though I'm open to persuasion (it'll take one LOAD of persuasion).

    General CommentThis song is about a stalker who finally goes too far I think.

    General CommentYeah, it's basically about a stalker, rapist, etc. that might be stalking or looking for people to attack...or about the fear of not knowing whom around you might be a stalker, rapist, etc....kind of like the song, although just like The Clansman, they could've shortened the song and it'd be much better since it gets pretty repetitive.

    General CommentI believe in the "30 Years of the Beast" book, Steve mentioned that he wrote this about his difficulty making eye contact.

    General CommentI think this song is warning people not to look at 'the small', because sensations transfer very quickly in a short time and when the sun goes down when that 'small' is reflecting on their truth they will have your presence in your mind and it might prove to be a drain for you. I only get this reading because of the use of the world 'stranger' and 'fool'. I don't think there is tooo much in this song.
