One little girl
Told to know her place
Told she must believe
And do what he says
One little girl
Taught that she is small
Taught that she is less
And man's decree is law
One little boy who'd know her too well
But that one little boy could send her to hell
One little man who'd care if she cried
But that one little man would leave her
And then she'd die
One little girl
Is beaten 'till she faints
Told that this is love
Told that she will have to take it
One little girl
Is just a bit confused
Thought that she was human too


One little girl
Couldn't run away
Anywhere she'd go
The rules and men the same
One little girl
Couldn't take the pain
Numbed herself 'till none remained

    General CommentSad song. I don't fully understand it though... It sounds like the girl and the boy have known each other for quite some time, but the boy decides to turn on her and treat her like dirt.

    What I like about this song is the use of the word 'little'. When referring to the girl, it's used to mean frail and defenseless. But when it's used to describe the man, its meaning changes to mean weak and disrespectful.

    I also like the way the music sounds. It's got that angry sound that makes you hate the "one little boyl".

    My OpinionI feel like this song is about either rape or some type of domestic violence. It just gives me this overwhelming impression of being about male dominance.
