Sayings of Judus Christ
When you were praying before Jesus Christ,
When you intended for sacrifice
When you were searching the lost paradise,
When the world desired justice,
I lifted my head with pride,
I am Judas Christ.
When the world waged worshiping the good
They ousted out evil for good,
When they shunned reality in bad mood,
To extend my brood,
I inscribed evil lines in pure wood.
I unmasked the façade of his goodness,
I unclothed his holiness;
I didn't consider him pious,
I am Judas, the rebellious.
I am the rebel on earth,
I don’t understand Jesus’ worth.
I only believe in freedom,
And often in rebellion.
I didn't denounce Jesus,
I only denounced his views,
I didn't hate him,
I only hated his theories.
And I received the award you gave,
I knew how you could behave
But he forgave.
Considering me a naive hater.
My animosity made him Jesus,
My cruelty earned him honors,
My treachery made him almighty,
My extremism transformed him into deity.
I never was his disciple,
I was always destructive,
I only knew devil’s definition,
I am vile beyond description.
I am Judas Christ,
Far better than Jesus Christ.
You only read about Judas kiss,
Sing songs on Judas priest,
But Judas doesn't mean betrayal,
It doesn't signify burglar.
I love to see Jesus bedecked,
I will rewrite Old Testament.
I don’t belong to Judas kiss,
I don’t signify triple six,
I am not Friday the 13th,
I have no connection with crucifix.
I even admire cryptex,
I am my own rex.
I am the rebel on earth,
I don’t fear if it’s dark;
I can tear apart purity like a shark.
I am baneful like a preying hawk.
I truly desire to pierce the veils,
I want to shun all holiness.
I am the warrior of light,
I am the knight of atheists,
I’m the soldier of optimists,
I've strong hatred for pessimists.
I crave for slaying the misogynists,
I’m truly Judas Christ.
I am the voice of vice,
I don’t listen to Jesus’ advice,
How long will you obey tyranny of cathedrals?
And remember Judas’ betrayal?
I am survivor of sins,
I’d fallen for Mary Magdalene,
I’m savior of sinners,
I do worship freedom fighters.
I razed the monument of purity,
I gazed at prostitutes with dignity.
I saw savages of cruelty,
Still I love sinners passionately.
I’m always child at heart,
Even if you call me a dirt,
I won’t let myself hurt!
I’m fighter, explorer. Philosopher,
I am revolutionist among sinners,
I made Jesus torn apart,
I am Judas Christ to your coward heart!
