L'enfant De Mort

This song is by All Living Fear and appears on the album Home Too Soon (2003).

How long since I saw, you were just a little girl
You were playing with your dolls and toys
But now you've swapped your toys for boys
Unprepossessing daughter of Eve
How much for him to bear your scars of life
For beauty and looks bring no salvation
Your body, to him, you sacrifice
Now that you're older do you regret what you have done
What's the price of popularity, the cost of having so much fun
I, He, You, We, They
Thou shall kneel before him pray
Thou shall pay heed to his warning
Listen little girl can't you hear him calling
I said listen little girl
Because the Devil is calling for you

Naked I find you, cast aside and thrown away
Your dress so pretty, torn asunder
The last vestige of modesty
Unto the earth your child was born
Bastard son, product of a nightmare
Helpless infant, innocent it appeared
Helpless infant, the key to all living fears
So he grew to loathe you for the pact that you had made
The day he discovered a demon was your lover
The boy became a man, the mother just a vassal for hate
