"Easy Prey" as written by John Carringto Brewster Jones, B. Brewster, Rick Brewster and Bernard Patrick Neeson....
City parks are filled with easy prey
Nothing but the fear is real
Though you pay for shelter with your heart
Protection don't exist at all
Everybody knows about it
Everybody else but you
They all think it's really nothing
But they'll never understand its real

Oh, everybody knows about it
Everybody else but you
They all think it's really nothing
But they'll never understand its true

    General CommentI feel like he is speaking to this woman about how he thinks she is worth nothing and he refuses to validate her as a person no matter what goodness she possesses or no matter what she does to try to be a good person. In validating, I mean not abusing her and just letting her be. She is "praying for shelter" (when you pray for shelter it is from the storm which is a metaphor for bad things affecting your life) and he is basically saying forget it "protection doesn't exist" of course not from him or anyone she knows. Her life has become extremely difficult for her because of this. She only wants to be a good person and live a clean life. He and everyone else thinks that they know things about her (not really understanding her though) so therefore he takes full advantage and thus she is the "prey". The lyrics being kind of vague but it brings a scenario to mind, I might be wrong ... and so I see my explanation is longer than the lyrics themselves ; )
