System of a Down: Honey Meaning

The song is about an abusive father who forces his children into prostitution. Maria ran away to escape her family, and her passion was her tarnished innocence and ruined childhood. Her dad was no longer a man as he was a monster, and she was free of the corrupting influence of money on her family and life. The narrator is another child, doomed by God to suffer the abuses of his father, and he swears to treat his children better than he was treated. His mom tries to care for him the best she can despite her husband's tyrannical wishes, hence the son loves her.
The last stanza is the father panicking when he realizes the babysitter is about to stumble on his prostitution ring. Not sure what the first stanza is all about, just general [faux] religious stuff that sounds good probably.

"I WILL NEVER MARRY, 'TILL I'M READY,
TO BE THE PERFECT MAN,
MOMMY I LOVE YOU"
well its easy to underestand if you were part of the people that werent adoctrinated and werent traumatizated because "they" uses autosuggestions as it says "to be the perfect man" to prevent an opposition in the governemnt they can do what they want on it and nobody will say a shit because were forced to become part of the doctrine is very very complex to underestand all this just a few people underestand this like me
