Judas

Amber

Back and forth
Pendulums swinging;
Back and forth
Birds singing;
Back and forth
Bells a-ringing;
Back and forth
Prophesies saying.

Silver coins kiss his mind:
Betrayal awaits, so unkind.
Toxic thoughts: an acid rain
Shower down and make their stain.

Was there amber in the sky?
Behind the tree where Judas hung?
An oil painting filled with crimson dye?
And late sorrows on his tongue?

Back and forth
Trust broken;
Back and forth
Tears awoken;
Back and forth
Tombs reopen;
Back and forth
Truth has spoken.

the truth tastes like blood
it drips from my mouth
standing still in my red shadow
my teeth are red
red like my rage

Judas kisses
wash my feet of the dirt
I walked through
the truth is still the truth
in outer space
and blood is still red
red like my rage

nooses smile golden loops
hanging like lies
smiling at me
but all I taste is blood

JUDAS

SHOW YOURSELF!
Show yourself to the world!
Get out of this kingdom
and feel the guilt
that you should!
I do not want you
walking these streets!
Get away from my family
and leave my friends alone!

Go (ab)use someone else!
Take your kisses of betrayed
affection away!
I see right through your
lies!
I see beyond your masks
and I am scarred
by your true form!

I don’t want you to
let me think you care!
The feelings you leave me with
make me angry!
Infuriated!
I cared for you,
I opened up to you,
I helped you,
but YOU BETRAYED MY TRUST!

Yet I always knew!
Once betrayed, I forgave.
Again!
Forgiveness!
Again! And again!

Take the traitor away!
Get out! Get out!
GET OUT, JUDAAAS!
