"Judas Cradle" as written by and Bob Mould....
Like the spider spins the web
It goes back to your beliefs
What you said you never said
You're trying hard to find relief

It's not telling truth or lies
It's about convenience
To throw stones and you look stoned
Could you lie and mean it

You'd rock it if you were able
Can you hang with Judas Cradle
Rock me baby off to sleep
Now you've fallen in too deep

You'd rock it if you were able
Can you hang with Judas Cradle

My hands/ Means nothing/ To Me

Have you seen the Judas Cradle
Inbetween the Judas Cradle

As the point gets driven home
You lose your resistance
Splits you down the middle man
And increase the distance

You'd rock it if you were able
Can you hang with Judas Cradle
Throw me back into the fire
Peel the skin away from bones

As the smoke keeps rising higher
As the Judas Cradle moans
Have you seen the Judas Cradle
Inbetween the Judas Cradle

Could you rock the Judas Cradle
Can you rob the Judas Cradle
Hung upon the Judas Cradle
Fall upon the Judas Cradle

    General CommentThis songs seems to be about betrayal, though to me it provides very few clues. The Judas Cradle is a torture device rumored to have been used by the Spanish Inquisition, apparently designed to impale the victim and prevent him/her from falling asleep. Aside from that I can say this is a very angry, bitter song, what a shame the vocals are buried so deep into the mix.

    My OpinionThis song has a lot of references to Christian Evangelism, and I think it is an angry tirade against it.
