Don't talk to strangers
Cause they're only there to do you harm
Don't write in starlight
'Cause the words may come out real
Don't hide in doorways
You may find the key that opens up your soul
Don't go to Heaven cause it's really only Hell
Don't smell the flowers
They're an evil drug to make you loose your mind
Don't dream of women
'Cause they'll only bring you down

Hey you, you know me, you've touched me, I'm real
I'm forever the one that lets you look and see and
Feel me I'm danger, I'm the stranger
And I, I'm darkness, I'm anger, I'm pain
I am master, the evil song you sing inside your brain
Drive you insane

Don't talk, don't let 'em inside your mind
Run away, run away, girl

No, no, no don't let them in your mind
Protect your soul

Don't dance in darkness
You may stumble and you're sure to fall
Don't write in starlight
'Cause the words may come out real
Don't talk to strangers
'Cause they're only there to make you sad
Don't dream of women
'Cause they'll only bring you down

    Its not as complicated as some may seem about this song. No need to look too deep into this one. The song is about trust and some things are not always what they seem. Ronnie wrote this song during his beak up with wendy. This is not opinion its fact. (about the song being written when the beak up occurred). Something could look and feel like gold and it turns out to be steel. A priest may be evil.

    Although parts of this song do have that "What on earth are you talking about?" quality that a lot of Dio lyrics do, it's slightly less indecipherable than say, Holy Diver.

    Personally, I think that the song's about dissapointment and being let down. It emphasises the bleakness of life by warning us of the darkness that lurks behind the seemingly innocent.
