She left me there in the garage
staggering from the barrage
she waltzed away as my face fell
chalk another sucker to the list she's making

he laughed at me from up above
tucked away with his new love
all I wanted was to tell him what she meant to me
but he gave me nothing

that was when snow fell in october
don't be that Judas
please remember
sympathy beats apathy so bleed compassion

that was the day I truly lost her
he was the Judas
such a coward
I'll erase my memory
forget what happened

some things we can't do ourselves
pennies into wishing wells
she turned awkward silence into painful laughter

you know I'd do the same for you
yet you rolled how the heartless do
I was so much better to you
but I wish I wasn't

that was when snow fell in october
don't be that Judas
please remember
sympathy beats apathy so bleed compassion

that was the day I truly lost her
he was the Judas
such a coward
I'll erase my memory
forget what happened

maybe there's truth in the claim I'm selfish
but I'm not crazy
my name and a heart on the back of your arm
still freshly inked and scabbing
when you said forever
I guess you meant a week

    General CommentI think it's saying "don't be the one to betray God."

    Because Judas was a disciple of God who betrayed him.

    Song Meaningthis is about the songwriter's relationship with his ex. i would assume he caught her cheating on him. but she had his name tattooed on her arm probably days before they broke up, since it was "still freshly inked & scabbing". they must have only been engaged for a week , "when you said forever, i guess you meant a week". i analyzed this song for an english class last year. every song off this album was about his ex.
