Wrong. | Reviewer: useful idiot | 8/19/07
"Well, for those who don't know..." As if you know? You don't know anything, quit pretending like you have some sacred knowledge above and beyond anyone else's. All you have is a comforting lie.
"God places challenges in our lives that we will never fully understand..." Wait, huh? I don't see cause and effect having any motive to challenge us. Blood clot hit Judith the same way it hits everyone. If you want to say it's a learning experience for all involved then go ahead, but don't say that there was some motive in a natural occurrence.
"God never abandons us..." Again, you can't even say for sure WHAT god is doing right at this moment, let alone if it is 'abandoning' us.
"For example, I was anorexic I can be angry at God for a 5 year struggle in my life or I can embrace it..." Or you could place the blame upon your genes but credit yourself for getting help and willfully overcoming what you did.
Maybe one day you will open your eyes and quit living in a world of fairy tales.
think? | Reviewer: Mike | 8/11/07
Maybe you people should just take the song as an expression of anger, and not the preaching of a psychologically disturbed threat to the whole of christiandom. Why do people feel that others expect their opinions to be taken as gospel? Do you think that Maynard is trying to tell you what to think, when he writes these songs, or is it possible that he might be intelligent enough to expect (or at least feign it out of a sense of quality) each of us to make our own intelligent choices, regardless of what some celebrity tells them. Maybe this IS how the guy lets go of his anger? Maybe it's not. Maybe he lets go of it in some other way that he doesn't let the public in on? We don't own these people you know. How do you know enough about the guy to start the verbal diarrhea because of 40 or 80 lines of text he sang to us once?

My Opinion | Reviewer: Mickey | 7/23/07
Personally, I think the song is what many should religious ppl should do, I was a christian for hmmm . . . 20 yrs and never got to taste the stuff "god" said in his "holy" book. Im now an athiest and will stay that way till I find a reason to change.
Judith | Reviewer: Julian | 7/13/07
I think anybody that has taken offense to to this song(generally christians) shouldn't even bother posting your comments. I was born and raised catholic, and I can't say I ever had what you call an "enlightening experience".
Correct me if I am wrong but religion has been the cause of war for thousands of years. Also there are so many different beliefs, and religions that have existed for thousands of years before christianity. So it's really ridiculous for you to sit hear and criticize Maynard's lyrics. Christianity is just as solid as greek mythology, sorry but I am not going to believe in something unless I see it. I never asked to have a life, so why should I have to suffer and get dealt shit all the time. If there is a god he doesn't seem to kind and loving, and unless you show up at my house with God himself standing next to you, I will remain to believe that it was just a lie to gain power. I mean just look at this world, it's completely fucked!
personally... | Reviewer: sami lu | 7/8/07
seeing as how his mother is judith marie this song was obviusly written with his feelings surrounding her faith. she was in a wheelchair for over 27 years and continued to believe in Christ desipte what had happened, and apparently maynard found that disgusting and sheep-like.
but if you go on to the new tool album 10,000 days and read the lyrics to the songs dedicated to his mother who passed away, i think you'll find a different opinion coming from him.
Great song | Reviewer: Walter | 7/10/07
This song was written about his mother Judith Marie. She was confined to a wheel chair for reasons I don't remember. She was devout in her religion and he feels that someone that followed God that close and faithfully for something like that to happen means her god betrayed her.
possibly... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/30/07
I have heard that the song is about his mother judith, who was a devout catholic she died and the blanks pretty much fill themselves in from there..
Personal opinion | Reviewer: Brian | 6/30/07
I've listened to Tool and A Perfect Circle and seen them both perform live. I also know now what his mother went through after everyone who has commented on this song mentioned. However, I enjoy listening to the band mainly for their music, not lyrics. He does have a right to use his freedom of speech. It is poetic and well written. However, it's very unfortunate that he has these opinions. I understand his anger with what his mother dealt with. At the same time, isn't he disrespecting his mother by making a mockery of the God that she herself chose to believe in? Hopefully someone someday will help him deal with his emotional issues and he'll write some songs that have more taste than F*CK your God. Doesn't sound like it took too much thought to come up with that line. I'll pray for him and I hope others will too. And to clarify, this isn't me passing judgement. He's a very talented man with musical abilities way beyond my own. I'm just saying it's unfortunate that such a gifted man is so obviously depressed and confused.
My Opinion | Reviewer: Kevin | 6/29/07
This song can mean many things according to the author's opinion (only Maynard knows his true intentions, which i think were many) But what I think is that the song is completely about his anger towards how his mom had kept faith in god, even after being paralyzed, obviously he has experienced stuff that has made him angry against Christianity , but in the end I think Maynard wrote a song that is genius, which Maynard to me will always be because of his satirical lyrics, which I have sympathy for and love because most people can connect to it.Thanks for reading this.
Judith | Reviewer: Emily | 6/30/07
I do agree that Maynard does have the right to voice his views; however, when he says 'he did it all for you' it is clearly sarcastic he is voicing his question as to why his mother remained in her faith in Jesus Christ after her stroke leaving her paralyzed. It is sarcastic saying look what he did for you, you didn't kill didn't insert the spear into his side why you?
Well, for those who don't know God places challenges in all of our lives that we will never fully understand. Yes, Jesus CHrist did do it for us and he is our savior. I do agree that God does never abandon us but we Him. We have the choice of free will and wander astray. Isaiah 53:6 'All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.'
Maynard is definately a talented artist but I truly do pray that he will learn that his mother's paralysis was not a curse from Christ but a way that God challenges us to put our faith first. We will never have the capacity to understand what the will of God is but this I can say it is for a greater purpose one that it seems his mother surely understands. He needs to let go of the anger that he has against God for his mother's stroke. For example, I was anorexic I can be angry at God for a 5 year struggle in my life or I can embrace it and mentor for a group at my church for women who are trying to recover from eating disorders. There is a greater purpose for every challenge.
Mayland??? | Reviewer: Suckafreesunday | 6/20/07
What is Mayland. Does someone not know how to spell or am i missing something. Be kind and fill me in. If not its MAYNARD!
Omfg people | Reviewer: Molly Ann | 6/17/07
Stop worrying about what Maynard is saying, for Gods sake, stfu. Maybe you dont agree, but if thats the case, stfu, leave the site, and dont listen to A Perfect Circle or Tool ever again. If he was so scarred by his experience with his mother, Judith, he has a right to say anything he wants about it. He doesnt have to believe in your God, my God or anyone elses for that matter, and if this song is so offensive to you, please, just excuse yourself now. Ya know what Im saying? I mean, people complain so much about things that can easily be solved. Personally, I like Tool, I like A Perfect Circle, and Im not sure where I fall with beliefs, but I agree completely with what he's saying. Way to go on another fucking amazing song. Top notch. Thanks. And btw, before another hate comment is left, dont you think that complaining to people who dont know you OR Maynard is being a little ignorant. Wtf are we gonna help with if you have a problem? Go at them with our keyboards for you? Doubtful.
Judith | Reviewer: Cameron Lum | 6/17/07
this song is definately one of my favorites. maynard puts his views through perfectly, im glad im not the only one with doubts this strong against the christian religion, he expresses it so well, the first time you hear it, it just sounds so familiar.
this song is PERFECT! this entire ALBUM is perfect. and A Perfect Circle is Manificent.
loads of fun to play | Reviewer: Ella | 6/15/07
i think he's just really hurt from what happened to his mum when he was eleven and he's confused about christianity in the first place, and he thinks that god had caused his mother's problem and he doesn't understand why she would still be faithfu. But in my beliefs, it is your fault what happens to you. alot of people don't like to hear that, because they don't want to accept that.
but anyway, he's just confused and hurt as far as i can tell. it's an awsome song, it's stuck in my head now! the guitar is beautiful and fun to play with your amp up LOUD XD
