Childhood's End Lyrics
So what, there's nothing left to do
And you and your obsessions and your crucifix
As if what I thought mattered much to you
And you were always my friend from Childhood's End
This ''childhood's end'' song by the band KISS out of ''carnival of souls'' album that might have been inspired by the 1962 cult classic movie by the same name. About the Protagonist in the song as being one of Satan's pervert messingers playing a demon masquerading as a friend and trying to guide the end of his friend's dream that was in the past. There seems a lack of hope and faith in the soul trying to be taken out of this song by the demon trying to assimilate his illusion on his friend that reminded itself when Jesus ''was'' his friend a very long time ago and trying again in a different form in this time to manipulate this new soul of a friend towards his ''childhood's end'' dream to get something out of him that he needs by taking the hope away from him not to be saved by Jesus that became our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ A Rock and not to roll for us Christians and a stumbling stone for the demon to trip on.

Gene named the song after the book Childhood's End by Arthur C. Carke, which he had just finished reading. Tommy Thayer and Bruce Kulick had interpretation into the guitar riffs. As for the lyrics, Gene wrote a story about two friends, with one who died before his time and the other who missed his friend. Gene thought of the the title as the end of innocence. The song was recorded by Bruce Kulick, Paul Stanley, Eric Singer and Gene.
I got this information from a book in one of the KISS Box Sets.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
