my lyricsbox
My mind is clearer now--
At last all too 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 hand 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 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
Table chairs and oaken chests would have suited Jesus best
He'd 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!
Ah--Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah!!

Listen Jesus to the warning I give
Please remember that I want us to live
So come on, come on, listen to me.
Ah --- ah
Come on, listen, listen to me.
Come on and listen to me.
Ah --- ah
This song is from the album "Jesus Christ Superstar".
