He's a perfect stranger,
Like a cross
Of himself and a fox.
He's a feeling arranger
And a changer
Of the ways he talks.
He's the unforeseen danger
The keeper of
The key to the locks.
Know when you see him,
Nothing can free him.
Step aside, open wide,
It's the loner.

If you see him in the subway,
He'll be down
At the end of the car.
Watching you move
Until he knows
He knows who you are.
When you get off
At your station alone,
He'll know that you are.
Know when you see him,
Nothing can free him.
Step aside, open wide,
It's the loner.

There was a woman he knew
About a year or so ago.
She had something
That he needed
And he pleaded
With her not to go.
On the day that she left,
He died,
But it did not show.
Know when you see him,
Nothing can free him.
Step aside, open wide,
It's the loner.
