"Iscariot" as written by Travis Dean Bailey, David Edison Bunton, Joshua Michael Childers, Richard Allan Hall and Eric Allan Koruschak....
These times will try the hearts of men once carved in stone
Brother against brother poison spread within our own

Tonight you die a traitor’s death
A short drop a sudden stop
You know no honor
And now you’re shown for who you are
Tonight you die a traitor’s death
A short drop a sudden stop
You know no honor
And now

So part you lips bring forth a tongue yet Judas borne
Left handed strokes with two edged blades land where they may
A back the best target and truth avoids you still
Cowards, liars, traitors; this song was meant for you

Tonight you die a traitor’s death
A short drop a sudden stop
You know no honor
And now you’re shown for who you are
Tonight you die a traitor’s death
A short drop a sudden stop
You know no honor

    General Commentjudging by the name and numerous references, i would say this is about Judas Iscariot's betrayal of Jesus. Judas was a close friend of Jesus and agreed to have him killed in return for 30 pieces of silver. he then threw the money into a potter's field and hung himself because he realized what he had done. he is known as the traitor so this is about him.
