'Judas' is a song from the 1993 album Songs Of Faith And Devotion by Depeche Mode.

Notes

Martin Gore tells Australian newspaper In Press:

"'Judas' is an arrogant love song. We are not condoning unsafe sex. It is about wanting one hundred percent of someone in a relationship – the ultimate arrogance."

Alan Wilder said in the May 1993 issue of Keyboard magazine:

"[T]he beginning of "Judas" has Uillean pipes recorded straight, with backwards reverb mixed in."

Lyrics


Judas

Is simplicity best

Or simply the easiest

The narrowest path

Is always the holiest

So walk on barefoot for me

Suffer some misery

If you want my love

If you want my love


Man will survive

The harshest conditions

And stay alive

Through difficult decisions

So make up your mind for me

Walk the line for me

If you want my love

If you want my love


Idle talk

And hollow promises

Cheating Judases

Doubting Thomases

Don't just stand there and shout it

Do something about it


You can fulfill

Your wildest ambitions

And I'm sure you will

Lose your inhibitions

So open yourself for me

Risk your health for me

If you want my love

If you want my love

If you want my love

If you want my love
