He also will bow | Reviewer: Chris | 3/1/10
The first few times I heard this song, before I actually heard the lyrics, I thought it was pretty awesome. The music still is killer, but, yes I have problems with the lyrics just like some of the others who have posted here. I'm not wanting to attack Maynard or any of you that defend his views. First off it's not my place to defend God, He's big enough, He can and will stand up for Himself if He thinks it's necessary. Besides He's already forgiven Maynard for his words so it's not my place to hate him or wish him ill will. I just want to clarify somethings for those who've never read the Bible or been taught anything about who God is. God didn't paralyze or cause Maynards mom pain. It is not God's will that anyone should suffer. If you have the time and access to a Bible read the book of Job. It explains how many Christian's believe the world works. God allowed something bad to happen to his mom but he didn't cause it. Our sin brought pain and suffering upon us not God. The song says she didn't stick the spear in Christ's side. Well, actually she did, and so did I. Our sin is the only reason Christ had to die, so in turn I can say it was my hands that held the spear that killed Christ. Judith knew this and that is why she continued to worship God. I feel sorry for Maynard not only because he lost his mom and he watched her suffer, but also because his mis-directed anger will only keep him from ever coming to know the God that loves him so much he was willing to die for him. He will meet Him one day though, and I believe with all my heart when he looks in the face of the Christ, that he said those words about, his heart will break and as a flood of understanding fills him he will bow before Christ weeping and beg for forgiveness, as will all of us. Only, for him, I fear it will come too late. Which is so sad. With the talents God gifted him with, He could have done so much through Maynard, and instead of being welcomed into eterniity with his mom he will have to be turned away as God tells him "depart from into everlasting darkness, I never knew you". I hope someone reads this and wants to find out more about who God really is. If you seek Him you'll find Him, He's not hiding. And more than anything I hope Maynard himself comes to understand how his mom could worship the God he questions and come to know and worship the same Christ she did and spends eternity with her.
Author's honest pain and anger over powerful mythical beliefs which are truly powerful but worthless | Reviewer: Garyla | 3/2/10
This is a really sad soul and heart wrenching song about the author's honest pain and anger over powerful mythical "religious" beliefs which are truly powerful but baseless just like everyone once believed the world was "flat" despite the facts to the contrary!!!!
lol wut | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/24/10
Look if you don't like the song, its message, or your take on its message don't waste your time arguing with people who do. It's a song which simply means it was made for money. I happen to like it, it has a nice overall sound and has a strong steady flow of emotion in every note. It's provocative art like most of the work Keenan is famous for making.
~Have a nice day Internet.
same old story | Reviewer: Eric Roberts | 2/24/10
well first off his mother didnt just die of some desease she suffored for 27 years then died and the whole time this was going on she remained a devout christen. yet she still died. anyone who says fuck your lord or whatever is fully in the right after going through that and having nothing to show for it besides a dead mother. and as for calling them anti god fags your doing faith a favour or is something in some book about loving your neighbour you fucking hippocrate. why shouldnt he blame god? if god created everything he created bad and desease or the means of the creation so bam he had the leading role in her death. and i dont know how putting your hand to a fire is the same as getting a condition you have no controll over..im stumped. its almost like the two comments before mine have never heard nething else by maynard due the pure stupidity in thier words. so fuck your religion there is nothing about it concrete, its a web of lies and old stories. unless ne of you can tell me something unfathemed i suggest you stay from commenting on tool, a perfect circle, and pusifer songs.
Look... | Reviewer: Doesn't matter | 2/20/10
Well, according to me if something that really matters is the MESSAGE because song is basically about giving a MESSAGE. See, here I think that his mother died of a paralysis attack (Not certain if he is really relating to his mother) can't you just be optimistic about it. It could have been worst. How about some other disease which wud have been even worse than paralysis. Thousands of ppl face millions of problems for fuck sake and why is GOD the only one to be blamed. Anyways, when you are sending a message you do realize the consequences. The Havoc that your message might cause. The virus of hate you might spread. Most of all this kinda shit is only done to gain attraction. I don't like this song, But hey, what if i tell some teenager "HEY YOU WANNA LISTEN TO BADASS SHIT GO CHECK OUT THIS SONG, IT SAYS FUCK JESUS AND FUCK LORD" woah and there you go. A singer knows what he is saying, deeply realizes the consequences that his message will cause, despite of knowing that, they still do it... Some of them, specially these ANTI-RELIGION ANTI-GOD kinda typical fags. Better listen to Cannbial corpse or Death Or a better band insted of listening to anti-religion bullshit. Grow up.. If you tell me that your mum died because of bla bla bla disease, then i will refer you HATEBREED-NEVER LET IT DOWN instead of anti-jesus or anti-religion horse shit.
Where is Satan??? | Reviewer: Corey Love | 2/14/10
His lyrics are Fucked Up cuz it has nothing to do to his mother , he stated that he is a anti religion thats all ,, he wants to tell people that he is Somthing Of this shit Fuckem ,, but the thing is that these mother fuckers never mention SATAN as the one who does all these bad things and show people how to commit stuff that violate the human rules i dont understand these stupid people ,,, we do have some rockers that they blame it on satan but they believe in satan ,,, the thing is that they know that satan is the one should be blamed because of all these wars and trubles but they like satan and they say that they want to live this way and their religion is based on bad things ,,,,, okay what i spit is crap okay ,,, he blame God because of his mother right ,, okay i`ll tell you this ,, Open a Fire then put your hand into it what will happen??? you`ll burn your hand the question is who did this to you??? Hell yeah you Mothaphaka you are the one who did that to himself , there is no need for you to blame GOD cuz you did that ,, Dont forget that any bad thing happens to you is from satan and every good thing happens to you is from GOD,,,, dont forget this , is thats good!!! anybody who doesnt and didnt like what i said he can stick his finger in his ass , and Fuck himself is thats good!!!!

I agree with the comment below me, it's a simple confliction of beliefs. It applies to anybody who's been alone in the dark and never heard any whispers. The imagination is a powerful tool, if you put a child in a controlled enviroment until this child grew to be an adult. Whatever items you gave him or ideas you talked about will flourish in his mind. Eventually these mental instruments would develop into his own logical base of thoughts thus creating his own belief system. This could be as simple as worshipping a door-knob so it will someday open itself. Take a step back, think about it. If god does not exist then religion is still a scary yet fascinating facade that a majority of people hold strong, lifelong convictions with.
Judith | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/24/10
First off The title Judith has nothing to do with religeon. Judith, is his mothers name. His mother is very into religeon even after she was paralyzed. He is trying to understand why she still believes in a god or a Jesus Christ after her paralization. He then says f**k your god lord and Jesus Christ because after her years of faithfulness she got repaid by being paralyzed and he doesn't understand why she still has faith. Wow it is that simple. I don't know why you all start getting religous.
ohhhh yeahhh | Reviewer: leroy | 1/23/10
half of you lack the education to inerperet this song in any aspect. you can twist it any way your heart desires but it doesent make you right. fuck your god. fuck your religion and most of all fuck you and your middle class parents in their ugly assholes you ignorant fuck.
Religion as a metaphor | Reviewer: biopaint | 1/14/10
This song really seems to use religious terms as a metaphor only. The ‘you’re God, you’re Christ’ parts seem to refer to an all powerful figure who the subject of the song, Judith, is devoted to as if this person was a god. Really most religions can fit this metaphor because they all seem to involve a certain level of unquestioning devotion.
Of course this person is nothing like the kind and just God depicted in any of the branches of Christianity. The song is about an abusive relationship where Judith is the one being abused yet she is devoted to her abuser as if he/she was a God.
I can relate to this song really well. My brother is trapped in an abusive relationship. Me and my family are trying to get him away from his girl friend but nothing we can do seems to help. He is devoted to her as if she was a deity.
Religion | Reviewer: Leon | 1/14/10
If Ken can show me the scientific proof that Jesus was alive again three days after his dead I will convert instantly. Not sure why we should have respect for somebodies religion. e.g, why should I have respect member of the Roman Catholic church, knowing what in their name has been done. Would you respect my choice as being a neo-nazi? deus_absconditus explanation is what it is. Period.
explanation | Reviewer: deus_absconditus | 1/5/10
This song was originally written as an open letter to his mother. She had a cruel man who always smashed and later left her.
She never questioned blaming her god, and that was, what made him so angry and hateful towards religion...
Much ado about Judith... | Reviewer: Vixen | 12/28/09
Everyone is waging war over a song that was clearly written by a very emotional man... Maynard's lyrics are often those that make you think and are open to interpretation but I don't think he meant for this to cause war between fellow fans or people who have heard the song. I think that if religion didn't exist in the first place, there wouldn't be a bunch of people getting offended by this song... but that's just my opinion and since religion DOES exist and Maynard did become angry enough to write this song about it, we should respect and see it or what it is: Maynard's personal emotional experience put into song. People shouldn't be so quick to judge and condemn others over it, but rather try personally identify with it and if they cannot, leave it alone.. Why don't you people stop religious warfare on a song's discussion board and instead do just that? You don't agree wth Maynard and cannot relate? Awesome... Leave his art alone then. I fail to see how it is that mentioning religion in a song suddenly gives people the right to shove their belief's down other people's throats. Religion is such a touchy subject - you honestly don't see people getting so hectically wound up over any other subject - and Maynard could have written beautifully metaphoric lyrics about a young girl who trusts in her teddy bear to take her tears away every time her heart breaks, and you'd see people of all religions adoring the song. But because he put this out there so blatantly people decide that it's not interpretable. If you think about it openmindedly, the main theme of this song is about trusting something or someone even though they give you no reason to do so and how that trust is seen through the eyes of someone who hurts when you do every time that trust is betrayed. Stop using the usage of 'God' as an excuse to be a judgemental bigot. Look at the bigger picture - you didn't write this song so you don't have to try defend YOUR faith, unless this song made you change your mind? To those who say they are Christians and like this song - I admire you and wish we had more open minded Christians like you around. To the non-believers that continue to bash religion in this discussion; you aren't acheiving anything. You are supposed to give your opinion on the song and not religion. I think this is a very haunting song and I really enjoy listening to both Tool and A Perfect Circle.
Ancient Roman Historical Documents | Reviewer: Ken Santarelli | 12/26/09
Actually, there are non-Christian ancient historical documents from the Roman Empire that make mention of a man, named Jesus (or Joshua) that was known as a teaching among the Jewish people, he died via crucifixion, the judge that presided was named Pilate, and 3 days after his crucifixion, he was alive again. THESE ARE NON-CHRISTIAN HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS! Look for yourself if you don't believe me. I'm a man who demands scientific, archeological, and historical proof before trusting any statements, and my demands were satisfied. The only reason you demean the name of Jesus is because you haven't done the research for yourself....or perhaps you're in denial....
right | Reviewer: zeit | 12/21/09
MJK's mom had aneurism when he was 11 and couldn't care for him; the song is about that, the fact she still kept her faith...don't really much blame him and for those bible thumping peices of ignorant @#$%#@...grow up and get a life-really! This musice is way too smart for you.
