Jesus Christ - Superstar

The Text of the 1st Scene: Judas

My mind is clearer now -
at last all to well.
I can see where we all soon will be.
If you strip away the myth
from the man, you will see
where we all soon will be.

Jesus! You've started to believe
The things they say of you?
You really do believe
this talk of God is true?
And all the good you've done
will soon get swept away.
You've begun to matter more
than the things you say!

Listen Jesus! I don't like what I see.
All I ask is that you listen to me.
And remember -
I've been your right man all along.
You have set them all on fire,
they think they've found the new Messiah.
And they'll hurt you
when they find they're wrong.

I remember
when this whole thing began,
no talk of God then -
we called you a man.
And believe me -
my admiration for you hasn't died,
but every word you say today
Gets twisted round some other way

And they'll hurt you
if they think you've lied

Nazareth your famous son
should have stayed a great unknown.
Like his father carving wood -
he'd have made good.
Tables, chairs and oaken chests
would have suited Jesus best.
He'd have caused nobody harm
- no-one alarm Listen Jesus do you care for your race?
Don't you see we must keep in our place?
We are occupied - have you forgotten
how put down we are?

I am frightened by the crowd
For we are getting much too loud.
And they'll crush us if we go too far -
if we go too far

Listen Jesus to the warning I give!
Please remember that I want us to live.
But it's sad to see our chances
weakening with every hour.

All your followers are blind,
too much heaven on their minds
It was beautiful but now it's sour
Yes, it's all gone sour.

Listen Jesus to the warning I give
Please remember that I want us to live
So come on, come on
He won't listen to me.....
