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’m frightened by the crowd For we are getting much too loud And they’ll crush us 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....
