(Judas) My God, I saw him He looked three-quarters dead And he was so bad I had to turn my head You beat him so hard That he was bent and lame And I know who everybody's Going to blame I don't believe he knows I acted for our good I'd save him all the suffering If I could Don't believe Our good Save him If I could
(Priest) Cut the confessions Forget the excuses I don't understand why You're filled with remorse All that you've said Has come true with a vengence The mob has turned against him You've backed the right horse
(Caiaphas) What you have done Will be the saving of Israel You'll be remembered forever For this And not only that You've been paid for your efforts Pretty good wages For one little kiss
(Judas) Christ! I know you can't hear me But I only did what you wanted me to Christ! I'd sell out the nation For I have been saddled With the murder of you I have been spattered With innocent blood I should be dragged Through the slime and the mud I have been spattered With innocent blood I should be dragged Through the slime and the mud
I don't know how to love him I don't know why he moves me He's a man He's just a man He's not a king He's just the same As anyone I know He scares me so! When he's cold and dead Will he let me be? Does he love me too? Does he care for me? Ohhhhh...
My mind is darkness now My god I am sick I've been used And you knew All the time God I'll never ever know Why you chose me for your crime For your foul bloody crime You have murdered me! You have murdered me!
