About Judas

"Judas" is a song by American singer Lady Gaga, recorded for her second studio album, Born This Way (2011). It was released by Interscope Records on April 15, 2011 as the second single from the album. Written and produced by Lady Gaga and Nadir "RedOne" Khayat, it is an electro house song about a woman in love with a man who betrayed her. It embodies the incidents that have haunted Gaga in the past, and its core meaning refers to the negative parts of her life that she cannot escape. Gaga has further explained that the song was also about honoring one's inner darkness in order to bring oneself into the light. The artwork for the single was designed by Gaga in Microsoft Word. In spite of a polarizing impact on several religious groups, the song was generally well received by critics, who likened the song to "Bad Romance" with some noting it should have been the album's lead single. "Judas" received generally positive reviews from most music critics. The song has a similar sound to Gaga's previous RedOne-produced tracks, including "Poker Face", "LoveGame", "Bad Romance", and "Alejandro". It contains three distinct hooks and a house-influenced break down. Gaga explained that the lines spoken during the breakdown talk about her as beyond redemption, regarding the traditional views of what a woman should be. "Judas" initially had a strong sales opening, but was less successful commercially in comparison to Gaga's previous singles. The song reached the top ten of the charts in most major music markets, and also reached the top of the charts in South Korea.

Whoa whoa I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as
Whoa whoa I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as
Juda-as! Juda-ah-as! Judas! Juda-ah-as
Juda-as! Juda-ah-as! Judas! Ga-ah ga-ah

Juda-as! Juda-ah-as! Judas! Juda-ah-as
Juda-as! Juda-ah-as! Judas! Ga-ah ga-ah

When he calls to me, I am ready
I'll wash his feet with my hair if he needs
Forgive him when his tongue lies through his brain
Even after three times he betrays me
Ah oh I'll bring him down, bring him down, down
Ah oh a king with no crown, king with no crown

I'm just a holy fool,
Oh baby it's so cruel but
I'm still in love with Judas baby
I'm just a Holy Fool, oh baby it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas baby

Whoa whoa I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as
Whoa whoa I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as
Juda-as! Juda-ah-as! Judas! Juda-ah-as
Juda-as! Juda-ah-as! Judas! Ga-ah ga-ah

I couldn't love a man so purely
Even darkness forgave his goofy way
I've learned love is like a brick you can
Build a house or sink a dead body

Ah oh I'll bring him down, bring him down, down
Ah oh a king with no crown, king with no crown

I'm just a holy fool, oh baby it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a holy fool, oh baby it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
Whoa whoa I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as
Whoa whoa I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

In the most Biblical sense,
I am beyond repentance
Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind
But in the cultural sense
I just speak in future tense
Judas kiss me if offenced,
Or wear an ear condom next time

I wanna love you, but something's pulling me away from you
Jesus is my virtue and Judas is the demon I cling to I cling to

Just a holy fool, oh baby he's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a holy fool, oh baby it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Whoa whoa I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as
Whoa whoa I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as
Juda-as! Juda-ah-as! Judas! Juda-ah-as
Juda-as! Juda-ah-as! Judas! Ga-ah ga-ah
