What We Don't See

Saxon Crow

Out of the corner of your eye 

The tingling on your neck

The shiver running down your back 

The sense that something's there 

The voice you hear right by your ear 

The shadow that's not your own 

The sudden change in temperature 

When you know you're not alone 

The stories told when you were young 

Come drifting in your head 

And suddenly they seem so real 

As you hide deep within your bed

Because what you don't see is sometimes real 

There's mystery still around 

And we forget that where we live

Is still something's hunting ground 

So carry some iron and a rabbits foot 

Some milk and garlic too 

And respect the old and wizened ways 

Because there's truth in what was told 

And just remember folklore was taught 

Way before you were born 

When men and mystery were intertwined 

When we followed natural law
