"Judas" as written by and Kai Hansen....
You promise us a bright golden future
You say you will save the world
That there will be no more hunger and pain
But we only see your golden hands

You say you take care of our survival
Sending us missiles instead
But you just betray us, deny us and lie
And you always say you would

Fight for freedom, fight for rights
I see treason in your eyes.

Judas - rulin' with an iron hand
Judas - sittin' in the government
Judas - I am not a Jesus Christ
Judas - you will be the one who's crucified

Your worship money and economy
There's nothing that you wouldn't do
If the payment is right you don't care about life
'Cause economy is your truth

You are the one selling terror and pain
In all the parts of the world
You are preparing the final grand slam
But you keep on tellin' you'll

Fight for freedom, fight for rights
I see treason in your eyes.

Judas - rulin' with an iron hand
Judas - sittin' in the government
Judas - I am not a Jesus Christ
Judas - you will be the one who's crucified

Judas, Judas - are you still human?
Judas, Judas - I can't believe it
Judas, Judas - dealing with evil
Judas, Judas
You'll keep on telling you'll

Fight for freedom, fight for rights
I see treason in your eyes.

Judas - rulin' with an iron hand
Judas - sittin' in the government
Judas - I am not a Jesus Christ
Judas - you will be the one who's crucified

Judas - rulin' with an iron hand
Judas - sittin' in the government
Judas - I am not a Jesus Christ
Judas - you will be the one who's crucified

    General CommentThis song for me is about the Antichrist raising, it uses some expressions like "rulin with an iron hand", ut's used in the Bible to describe the Antichrist

    General CommentGod, where do you see satanism in this ?! It's just a song about government and politicians who betray their voters like Judas betrayed Jesus Christ. This is an allegory......nothing about antichrist....Kay hansen doesn't worship satan for christ sake !!!

    General CommentI agree with vehuiah, this used to be a recurrent theme in Helloween's first albums - many of their songs were turned against the "rulers" and the politicians, especially against the western civilization governments (remember "and the Russians won't be so late... uncle Sam don't wanna wait..." ?)

    General CommentReeks of christian-fueled anti-semitism. Judas has become a popular scapegoat for Jesus' death. Kai is german.

    General CommentBut all in all the song is about a politician(king emperor tyrant) that promises to get into power, probably by making people fight(fight for freedom) but he is in only for the money(judas) and doesn't care about(crucified guy!)people. In the end he is just like or worst than the last one. Unlike Judas he doesn't seem to have remorse though. (Justice die!)
