Say, Judas came up to D.C.
He'd been down in Georgia for a while
He drove a 944, he bought with the soul
Of a blond-headed kid with a left-handed guitar

  • could listen to this over and over and over and over
  • clarence! you can do no wrong!
  • my interpretation has always been along the same lines, but the Cobain reference is news to me. thanks haha.
  • The lyrics are about staying out of musical corruption. "Judas came up to DC" - Judas was the betrayer of Jesus in the Bible. "He'd been down in Georgia for a while" - referencing the song Devil went down to Georgia. "He drove a 944 He'd bought with the soul Of a blond headed kid With a left-handed guitar" - referencing Kurt Cobain who also has had problems with management. "His first shot grazed my eye I lost half of my sight And my firstborn's life" - Referencing his first album, which was never released because of management. And also he has a scar by his eye, which makes it interesting. "The second shot knocked off my guitar moon And it made my guitar kinda play out of tune" - saying how his management affected his songs. "But I just kept strumming Like I had nothing to lose He turned the third on himself 'Cause the bastard knew" - Cope remained loyal to his music and refused to let the management take over him, and they let him go because they knew that he never will.
