A Million Men Lyrics

Miss Maggie was way too young to understand,
Why she got thrown into someone else's hands,
Why she woke up to strange men,
They tore her to pieces
And she couldn't comprehend,
Why she was locked up in a basement
Filled with men,

    Alrighty, y’all who are saying she escaped, SHE DIDN’T ! The words “Heading toward the light” and “ Angels swoop down and grab me” Explained everything! She probably killed herself because she couldn’t take it anymore and she didn’t want to get raped anymore. At least she went to heaven.

    Based on a real life story, the song talks about a girl name Maggie who is sold to men for drugs/money. The men then proceed to do awful things to her and she starts to notice (maybe around ten years old) that the things that's happened to her aren't normal. She finally escapes but can' t live a normal life.

    A Million Men is about a little girl named Maggie was sold to sex by her mother for money to buy drugs. Maggie was raped everyday since she was 5 until she might have ended her life or has escaped. I think she escaped, she turned 17 and has a boyfriend when saying "How will my boyfriend understand! I'm 17, with a history of a Million men~"

    I think Maggie was sold into sex trafficking by her mother so her mom could buy drugs. In my opinion, she tried to escape and was killed, because it is rare that people escape from sex trafficking and even more difficult when they r alone trying to escape. Also, she talking about running 2x, maybe she thought she escaped when she went to heaven and then realized the angels saved her.

    I'm gonna explain it sort of breifly. Candy. Aka DRUGS. Her mother sold her to some people for drugs. "Maggie" was forced into sex and was raped often at a young age. She was understanding that kids at her school didnt go through that and that it wasnt right and that it would take a lot to get out of the mess she was in.

    Ya'll stupid this is based on a real story so here is the real story: Annabelle forest who was forced to sleep with 1,800 men since the age of 8. She did it because her mother said if she didn't then god wouldn't love her

    This character, Miss Maggie was trafficked by her mother at a very young age so she could buy drugs. Melanie Martinez is trying to raise awareness for child and sex trafficking and how hard it is for victims to fit back into the society.

    This is one of the folk songs Melanie wrote when she was an emo teen. She has already said she has written about sex traffic, referring to A Million Men. This song also talks about pedophilia, when a lil girl named Maggie was sold to lots of men by her mother, and she was raped and abused a million times by a million men ( "Should have gone to school, instead she did them", "they tore her into pieces and she couldnt comprehend", "all those promiscous games she had to play"). This is really dark and heavy.

    This song is easily telling you about what happened to Maggie the little girl in the song it talks about her years and what happened. The phrase "She sold me for candy" means that her own mother sold her for drugs to a "Million Men".
