Judas Lyrics

(I'm becom-, I'm becom-, I'm becoming..!)
(I'm becom-, I'm becom-, I'm becoming..!)

You are beautiful, on the inside
You are innocence personified
And I will drag you down and sell you out
Run away!

I am cold like December snow

    Fighting your inner demons. Everyone has an inner demon that they must fight. Some let it escape and become criminals, others are blessed with having one light enough to ignore or barely having one at all, and then some fight it hard every day and never give in. This is about the 3rd. Fighting the demon inside.

    I think that this song could be about addiction and that inner battle with himself to overcome it

    From the outside looking in you will never see it.. from the inside looking out you can never explain it... until you've experienced it... it's a perfect interpretation of personality disorders such as narcissism and borderline, some of the most heinous ways to abuse another educate yourself help spread the word

    It’s a song written by Chris Jericho from the point of view of fellow wrestler Kevin Owens.

    To me this is a song is obscure and purposefully.
    To me It represents an existential crisis of someone who has a festering demon (perhaps addiction) and sees the pain it causes to others. Yet nurtures this darkness and almost enjoys the pain It causes as it’s one of the few things he’s thats his own.
    At the same time he questions “what have I become?” how did I fall down this rabbit hole.
    It’s someone at a crossroads. The Judas is safe, it can push people away and keep a barrier up for him. But he also sees the damage it causes the innocent around him.
    Great song.

    I think it is what you want it to be. After all he was struggling with resigning with wwe or going another path and being labeled a Judas. But I'm a wrestling mark.

    The singer is speaking to a loved one (a lover, a family member) whom he is trying to warn about how messed up he's become. Most of the song is a cry for help from the damned - a person who is reflecting on the wasted path of his life and all his horrid mistakes and actions. Chris Irvine ("Jericho") may even be referring to himself, since he is a middle-aged man, and certainly has done his share of hard living. It can also be the lament of a person who has hit bottom, or come to the end of a wasted life.

    This song is very ominous and is in fact as they say an evil song, please keep an open mind as I explain and be mindful I loved this song until just a few minutes ago i was sleeping with this song playing waking up to this realization

    You are beautiful on the inside
    You are innocence personified
    And I will drag you down and sell you out
    Run away

    Here he describes Human as we were made in the image of God the only embodiment that can ever be truly innocent and he explains how he will drag us down and sell us out, sell us to who?
    think about it

    I am cold like December snow
    I have carved out this soul made of stone
    And I will drag you down and sell you out
    Embraced by the darkness, I'm losing the light
    Encircled by demons, I fight

    Here he describes how his soul is corrupted and again that he will sell us his fans out (Again I have been his fan since his EWC days)
    He has fallen to darkness and lost the light as he says at a time he fought this evil but continues to explain how he infact became evil

    What have I become, now that I've betrayed
    Everyone I've ever loved, I pushed them all away
    And I have been a slave to the Judas in my mind
    Is there something left for me to save
    In the wreckage of my life, my life

    And betrayed everyone he once loved, how? by selling us all out as Judas sold Christ out.
    He then Laments is there a way for him to be saved after the matter.

    I'm becom-, I'm becom-, I'm becoming
    I'm becom-, I'm becom-, I'm becoming
    Judas in, Judas in my mind
    I'm becom-, I'm becom-, I'm becoming
    I'm becom-, I'm becom-, I'm becoming
    Judas in, Judas in my mind
    Judas in my mind

    In his mind and in a sense he has in fact become Judas for his betrayal this song will lead many astray by merely enjoying it

    It's about the evil within and trying to save someone else from that evil.

    Adding to my first post.

    The song just jives. Everything! vocals, lyrics, drums and guitar. It's perfect and just relates to some shit I've had in my life for sure. I'm sure that's why it's number 1 on iTunes.

    Such a great song! Lyrically one of the best I've heard in a very long time. The author has related with everyone in the world! Anyone; who's ever fought demons in their mind, wether it be drugs, gambling or any type of addiction. I've literally played this song a 100 plus times since I downloaded it a few hours ago.

    My opinion: he is speaking of becoming the demons, he is fighting! Betrayed everyone he loves for the demons he battles.

    Maybe an addiction; a lot of addicts lose the light, and are overcome by their demons. By pushing everyone you love out of your life, you're more likely to be overcome by your thoughts and demons.
