Blind Faith.


JUDITH by A Perfect Circle
You're such an inspiration for the ways
That I'll never ever choose to be
Oh so many ways for me to show you
How the savior has abandoned you
Fuck your God
Your Lord and your Christ
He did this
Took all you had and
Left you this way
Still you pray, you never stray
Never taste of the fruit
You never thought to question why
It's not like you killed someone
It's not like you drove a hateful spear into his side
Praise the one who left you
Broken down and paralyzed
He did it all for you
He did it all for you
Oh so many many ways for me to show you
How your dogma has abandoned you
Pray to your Christ, to your god
Never taste of the fruit
Never stray, never break
Never---choke on a lie
Even though he's the one who did this to you
You never thought to question why
Not like you killed someone
It's Not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side
Talk to Jesus Christ As if he knows the reasons why
He did it all for you
Did it all for you
He did it all for you..

The lead singer's mother - Judith Marie Keenan - spent the last 27 years of her life in a wheelchair partially paralysed by a stroke. Instead of turning her back on god - the stroke only strengthened her belief in god. It's something her son couldn't comprehend. He saw her actions as blind faith and further questions her blind belief in a vengeful god. It's something I really relate too and continues to grow in significance.
