I only want to say If there is a way Take this cup away from me For I don’t want to taste its poison Feel it burn me, I have changed I’m not as sure As when we started
Then I was inspired Now I’m sad and tired Listen, surely I’ve exceeded expectations Tried for three years, seems like thirty Could you ask as much from any other man?
But if I die See the saga through and do the things you ask of me Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree I’d want to know I’d want to know my God I’d want to see I’d want to see my God
Why I should die Would I be more noticed than I was ever before? Would the things I’ve said and done matter any more? I’d have to know I’d have to know my Lord I’d have to see I’d have to see my Lord
If I die what will be my reward? I’d have to know I’d have to know my Lord Why should I die? Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain? Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain Show me there’s a reason for your wanting me to die You’re far too keen on where and how but not so hot on why Alright I’ll die! Just watch me die! See how I die!
Then I was inspired Now I’m sad and tired After all I’ve tried for three years, seems like ninety Why then am I scared to finish what I started What you started -- I didn’t start it God thy will is hard But you hold every card I will drink your cup of poison, Nail me to the cross and break me Bleed me, beat me, kill me Take me now Before I change my mind....
