The things you're doing are illegal in your own country
So you travel around the world looking for your heaven
Little girls are waiting there forced to be abused by you, yeah

It was their mother, she made them scream
Even though they were all she had then
But she needed the money if she wanted to survive
So she had to be selfish and gave her kids away
Gave her kids away

And as she's sitting there, she's playing with her girlfriends
She's playing with her dolls and tries to catch a butterfly, yeah
But when the monster comes in, she has to put on make-up again

It was their mother, she made them scream
Even though they were all she had then
But she needed the money if she wanted to survive
So she had to be selfish and gave her kids away
Gave her kids away

And as you're lying there the sheets you lie on are full of blood
The cross you pray on but where's your god
But there was no protection
No there was no protection
There was no protection, no, yeah

It was their mother, she made them scream
Even though they were all she had then
But she needed the money if she wanted to survive
So she had to be selfish and gave her kids away
Gave her kids away

    General CommentIt obviously is about a pedophile wich travels to far-away countries to abuse child prostitutes.

    It also deals with a mother wich has no choice other than putting her daughters in this nasty work in order to make enough money to survive.

    The 'No protection' line can be interpreted two-fold:
    1. The victim has received no protection from God (or from any people).
    2. No condoms were used.

    General CommentAs Shunt already remarked it is about a pedophile.

    The children don't have any protection against this man. Even their mother can't protect them, because she desperately needs money. So desparately that she allows her children to be abused, just to be able to survive.
    Also there wasn't protection from a god or anyone else.
