Heaven On Their Minds


JUDAS:

My mind is clear 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 began 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 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
isten 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
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!

What's The Buzz?


APOSTLES:

What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening

JESUS:

Why should you want to know?
Don't you mind about the future, don't you try to think
ahead
Save tomorrow for tomorrow, think about today instead

APOSTLES:

What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening

JESUS:

I could give you facts and figures – I could give you plans
and forecasts
Even tell you where I'm going

APOSTLES:

When do we ride into Jerusalem?

JESUS:

Why should you want to know?
Why are you obsessed with fighting times and fates you can't
defy?
if you knew the path we're riding you'd understand it less
than I

APOSTLES:

What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening

MARY MAGDALENE:

Let me try to cool down you face a bit

JESUS:

That feels nice, so nice...
Mary that is good -
While you prattle through your supper – where and when and
who and how
She alone has tried to give me what I need right here and
now

APOSTLES:

What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening

Strange Things Mystifying


JUDAS:

It seems to me a strange thing mystifying
That a man like you can waste his time on women of her kind
Yes, I can understand that she amuses
but to let her stroke you, kiss your hair, is hardly in your
line
It's not that I object to her profession
But she doesn't fit in well with what you teach and say
It doesn't help us if you're in consistent
They only need a small excuse to put us all away

JESUS:

Who are you to criticize her? Who are you to despise her?
Leave her, leave her, let her be now
Leave her, leave her, she's with me now
If your slate is clean – then you can throw stones
If your slate is not then leave her alone
I'm amazed that man like you can be so shallow thick and
slow
There is not a man among you who knows or cares if I come or
go!

ALL (save Judas):

No you're wrong! You're very wrong!
How can you say that!

JESUS:

Not one – not one of you!

Then We Are Decided


CAIAPHAS:

We've been sitting on the fence for far too long.

ANNAS:

Why let him upset us?
Caiaphas, let him be.
All those imbeciles will see,
He really doesn't matter.

CAIAPHAS:

Jesus is important,
We've let him go his way before.
And while he starts a major war,
We theorize and chatter.

ANNAS:

He's just another scripture thumping hack from Galilee.

CAIAPHAS:

The difference is they call him King,
The difference frightens me!
What about the Romans?
When they see King Jesus crowned,
Do you think they'll stand around,
Cheering, and applauding?
What about our people?
If they see we've lost our nerve,
Don't you think that they deserve,
Something more rewarding.

ANNAS:

They've got what they want,
They think so, anyway.
If he's what they want,
Why take their toy away?
He's a craze!

CAIAPHAS:

Put yourself in my place,
I can hardly step aside.
Can not let my hands be tied.
I am law and order.
What about our priesthood?
Don't you see that we could fall?
If we are to last at all,
We can not be divided.

ANNAS:

Then say so to the council,
But don't rely on subtlety.
Frighten them, or they won't see.

CAIAPHAS:

Then we are decided?

ANNAS:

Then we are decided.

Everything Is All Right


MARY MAGDALENE:

Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you oh don't you know
Everything's alright yes everything's fine
And we want you to sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without you tonight
If we try we'll get by so forget all about us tonight

APOSTLES' WOMEN:

Everything's alright yes everything's alright yes

MARY MAGDALENE:

Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead oh then you feel
Everything's all right yes everything's fine
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet
Close your eyes close your eyes
And relax think of nothing tonight

APOSTLES' WOMEN:

Everything's all right yes, everything's all right yes

JUDAS:

Woman your fine ointment – brand new and expensive
Could have been saved for the poor
Why has it been wasted? We could have raised maybe
Three hundred silver pieces or more
People who are hungry, people who are starving
Matter more than your feet and hair

MARY MAGDALENE:

Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you oh don't you know
Everything's all right yes everything's fine
And we want you to sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without you tonight
if we try we'll get by so forget all about us tonight

APOSTLES' WOMEN:

Everything's all right yes everything's all right yes

JESUS:

Surely you're not saying we have the resources
To save the poor from their lot?
There will be poor always, pathetically struggling -
look at the good things you've got!
Think! While you still have me
Move! While you still see me
You'll be lost and you'll be sorry when I'm gone

MARY MAGDALENE:

Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and anoint you
Myrrh for your hot forehead oh then you'll feel
Everything's all right yes everything's fine
And it's cool and the ointment's sweet
For the fire in your head and feet
Close your eyes close your eyes
And relax think of nothing tonight
Close your eyes close your eyes and relax

ALL:

Everything's all right yes everything's all right yes

This Jesus Must Die


PRIEST 1:

Good Caiaphas the council waits for you
the Pharisees and priests are here for you

CAIAPHAS:

Ah gentlemen – you know why we are here
We've not much time and quite a problem here

MOB (outside):

Hosanna! Superstar!

ANNAS:

Listen to the howling mob on blockheads in the street
A trick or two with lepers and the whole town's on its

ALL:

He's dangerous!

MOB (outside):

Jesus Christ Superstar – tell us that you're who they say
you are!

ALL:

He's dangerous!

PRIEST 2:

The man is in town right now to whip up some support

PRIEST 3:

A rabble rousing mission that I think we must abort

ALL:

He's dangerous!

MOB (outside):

Jesus Christ Superstar!

ALL:

He's dangerous!

PRIEST 2:

Look Caiaphas – they are outside our yard!

PRIEST 3:

Quick Caiaphas – go call the Roman guard!

CAIAPHAS:

No wait – we need a permanent solution to our problem

ANNAS:

What then to do about Jesus of Nazareth
Miracle wonderman – hero of fools?

PRIEST 3:

No riots, no army, no fightings, no slogans

CAIAPHAS:

One thing I'll say for him – Jesus is cool

ANNAS:

We dare not leave him to his own devices
His half-witted fans will get out of control

PRIEST 3:

But how can we stop him? his glamour increases
By leaps every minute – he's top of the poll

CAIAPHAS:

I see bad things arising – the crowd crown him king
Which the Romans would ban
I see blood and destruction, our elimination because of one
man
Blood and destruction because of one man

ALL:

Because, because, because of one man

CAIAPHAS:

Our elimination because of one man

ALL:

Because, because, because of one, 'cause of one, 'cause of
one man

PRIEST 3:

What then to do about this Jesusmania?

ANNAS:

How do we deal with the carpenter king?

PRIEST 3:

Where do we start with the man who is bigger
Than John was when John made his Baptism thing?

CAIAPHAS:

Fools! You have no perception!
The stakes we are gambling are frighteningly high!
We must crush him completely -
So like John before him, this Jesus must die
For the sake of the nation this Jesus must die

ALL:

Must die, must die, this Jesus must die!

CAIAPHAS:

So like John before him this Jesus must die

ALL:

Must die, must die, this Jesus must, Jesus must, Jesus must
die!

Hosanna


CROWD:

Hosanna, Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J.C., J.C., won't you smile at me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

CAIAPHAS:

Tell the rabble to be quiet we anticipate a riot
This common crowd is much too loud
Tell the mob who sing your song
That they are fools and they are wrong
They are a curse, they should disperse

CROWD:

Ho Sanna Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J.C., J.C., you're alright by me
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

JESUS:

Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd?
Nothing can be done to stop the shouting
If every tongue was still the noise would still continue
The rocks and stones themselves would start to sing:

CROWD (with Jesus):

Ho Sanna Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho Sanna
Hey J.C., J.C., won't you fight for me?
Sanna Ho Sanna Hey Superstar

Simon Zealotes


CROWD:

Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved
Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved
Jesus I am with you
Touch me touch me Jesus
Jesus I am on your side
Kiss me kiss me Jesus

SIMON ZEALOTES:

Christ, what more do you need to convince you
That you've made it and you're easily as strong
As the filth from Rome who rape our country
And who're terrorized our people for so long?

CROWD:

Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved
Christ you know I love you
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved
Jesus I am with you
Touch me, touch me Jesus
Jesus I am on your side
Kiss me kiss me Jesus

SIMON ZEALOTES:

There must be over fifty thousand
Screaming love and more for you
Every one of fifty thousand
Would do whatever you ask him to
Keep them jelling their devotion
But add a touch of hate at Rome
You will rise to a greater power
We will win ourselves a home
You'll get the power and the glory
Forever and ever and ever
Amen! Amen!

Poor Jerusalem


JESUS:

Neither you Simon nor the fifty thousand
Nor the Romans nor the Jews nor Judas nor the Twelve
Nor the Priests nor the scribes
Nor doomed Jerusalem itself
Understand what power is
Understand what glory is
Understand at all...
Understand at all...
If you knew all that I knew my poor Jerusalem
You'd see the truth but you close your eyes
While you live your troubles are many poor Jerusalem
To conquer death you only have to die
You only have to die

Pilate's Dream


PILATE:

I dreamed I met a Galilean
A most amazing man
He had that look you very rarely find
The haunting hunted kind
I asked him to say what had happened
How it all began
I asked again – he never said a word
As if he hasn't heard
And next the room was full of wild and angry men
They seemed to hate this man – they fell on him and then
They disappeared again
Then I saw thousands of millions
Crying for this man
And then I heard them mentioning my name
And leaving me the blame

The Temple


MONEYLENDERS AND MERCHANTS:

Roll on up – for my price is down
Come on in – for the best in town
Take your pick of the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine
Roll on up – for my price is down
Come on in – for the best in town
Take your pick of the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine
Name your price I got everything
Come and buy it's all going fast
Borrow cash on the finest terms
Hurry now while stocks still last

JESUS:

My temple should be a house of prayer
But you have made it a den of thieves
Get out! Get out!
My time is almost through
Little left to do
After all I've tried for three years, seems like thirty
Seems like thirty

CROWD:

See my eyes I can hardly see
See me stand I can hardly walk
I believe you can make me whole
See my tongue I can hardly talk
See my skin I'm a mass of blood
See my legs I can hardly stand
I believe you can make me well
See my purse I'm a poor poor man
Will you touch will you mend me Christ
Won't you touch will you heal me Christ
Will you kiss you can cure me Christ
Won't you kiss won't you pay me Christ

JESUS:

There's too many of you – don't push me
There's too little of me – don't crowd me
Heal yourselves!

Everything's Alright


MARY MAGDALENE:

Try not to get worried try not to turn on to
Problems that upset you oh don't you know
Everything's all right yes everything's fine

JESUS:

And I think I shall sleep well tonight
Let the world turn without me tonight

MARY MAGDALENE:

Close your eyes, close your eyes
And forget all about us tonight

I Don't Know How To Love Him


MARY MAGDALENE:

I don't know how to love him
What to do how to move him
I've been changed yes really changed
In these past few days when I've seen myself
I seem like someone else
I don't know how to take this
I don't see why he moves me
He's a man he's just a man
And I've had so many men before
In very many ways
He's just one more
Should I bring him down should I scream and shout
Should I speak of love let my feelings out
I never thought I'd come to this – what's it all about
Don't you think it's rather funny
I should be in this position
I'm the one who's always been
So calm so cool, no lover's fool
Running every show
He scares me so
I never thought I'd come to this – what's it all about
Yet if he said he loved me
I'd be lost I'd be frightened
I couldn't cope just couldn't cope
I'd turn my head I'd back away
I wouldn't want to know
He scares me so
I want him so
I love him so

Damned For All Time


JUDAS:

Now if I help you it matters that you see
These sordid kind of things are coming hard to me
It's taken me some time to work out what to do
I weighed the whole thing up before I came to you
I have no thought at all about my own reward
I really didn't come here of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time
I came because I had to I'm the one who saw
Jesus can't control it like he did before
And furthermore I know that Jesus thinks so too
Jesus wouldn't mind that I was here with you
I have no thought at all about my own reward
I really didn't come here of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time
Annas you're a friend a worldly man and wise
Caiaphas my friend I know you sympathize
Why are we the prophets? Why are we the ones?
Who see the sad solution – know what must be done?
I have no thought at all about my own reward
I really didn't come here of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time

ANNAS:

Cut the protesting forget the excuses
We want information get up of the floor

CAIAPHAS:

We have the papers we need to arrest him
You know his movements – we know the law

ANNAS:

You help in this matter won't go unrewarded

CAIAPHAS:

We'll pay you in silver – cash on the nail
We just need to know where the soldiers can find him

ANNAS:

With no crowd around him

CAIAPHAS:

Then we can't fail

Blood Money


JUDAS:

I don't need your blood money!

CAIAPHAS:

Oh that doesn't matter our expenses are good

JUDAS:

I don't want your blood money!

ANNAS:

But you might as well take it – we think that you should

CAIAPHAS:

Think of the things you can do with that money
Choose any charity – give to the poor
We've noted your motives – we've noted your feelings
This isn't blood money – it's a fee nothing
Fee nothing fee nothing more

JUDAS:

On Thursday night you'll find him where you want him
Far from the crowds in the garden of Gethsemane

CHOIR:

Well done Judas
Good old Judas

The Last Supper


APOSTLES:

Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in the gentle pool of wine
Don't disturb me now I can see the answers
Till this evening is this morning life is fine
Always hope that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll still talk about us when we've died

JESUS:

The end...
It's just a little harder when brought about by friends
For all you care this wine could be my blood
For all you care this bread could be my body
The end!
This is my blood you drink
This is my body you eat
If you would remember me when you eat and drink
I must be mad thinking I will remembered – yes
I must be out of my head!
Look at your blank faces! my name will mean nothing
Ten minutes after I'm dead!
One of you denies me
One of you betrays me -

APOSTLES:

Not I! Who would? Impossible!

JESUS:

Peter will deny me in just a few hours
Three times will deny me – and that's not all I see
One of you here dining, one of my twelve chosen
Will leave to betray me -

JUDAS:

Cut out the dramatics! you know very well who -

JESUS:

Why don't you go do it?

JUDAS:

You want me to do it?

JESUS:

Hurry they are waiting

JUDAS:

If you knew why I do it ...

JESUS:

I don't care why you do it!

JUDAS:

To think I admired you For now I despise you

JESUS:

You liar – you Judas

JUDAS:

You want me to do it!
What if I just stayed here
And ruined your ambition?
Christ you deserve it!

JESUS:

Hurry fool, hurry and go,
Save me your speeches, I don't want to know – Go!

APOSTLES:

Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in the gentle pool of wine
What's that in the bread it's gone to my head
Till this morning is this evening life is fine
Always hope that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll all talk about us when we've died

JUDAS:

You sad pathetic man – see where you've brought us to
Our ideals die around us all because of you
And now the saddest cut of all
Some one has to turn you in
Like a common criminal, like a wounded animal
A jaded mandarin
A jaded mandarin
A jaded jaded mandarin

JESUS:

Get out! They're waiting! They're waiting for you

JUDAS:

Every time I look at you I don't understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand
You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned

APOSTLES:

Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in the gentle pool of wine
Don't disturb me now I can see the answers
Till this evening is this morning life is fine
Always hoped that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll still talk about us when we've died

JESUS:

Will no one stay awake with me
Peter? John? James?
Will none of you wait with me?
Peter? John? James?

Gethsemane (I Only Want To Say)


JESUS:

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 ever was 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 and 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

The Arrest


JUDAS:

There he is! They're all asleep – the fools!

JESUS:

Judas – must you betray me with a kiss?

PETER:

What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening

PETER AND APOSTLES:

What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening
Hang on Lord we're gonna fight for you

JESUS:

Put away your sword
Don't you know that it's all over?
It was nice but now it's gone
Why are you obsessed with fighting?
Stick to fishing from now on

CROWD:

Tell me Christ how you feel tonight
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you fell that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?
Do you think that you may retire?
Did you think you would get much higher?
How do you view your coming trial?
Have your men prove at all worth while?
Come with us to see Caiaphas
You'll just love the High Priest's house
You'll just love seeing Caiaphas
You'll just die in the High Priest's house
Come on God this is not like you
Let us know what you're gonna do
You know what your supporters feel
You'll escape in the final reel
Tell me Christ how you feel tonight
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?
Come with us to see Caiaphas
You'll just love the High Priest's house
You'll just love seeing Caiaphas
You'll just die in the High Priest's house
Now we have him! Now we have got him!

CAIAPHAS:

Jesus you must realize the serious charges facing you
You say you're the Son of God in all your handouts – well
is it true?

JESUS:

That's what you say – you say that I am

ANNAS:

There you have it gentlemen -
What more evidence do we need?
Judas thank you for the victim -
Stay a while and you'll see it bleed!

CROWD:

Now we have him! Now we have got him!
Take him to Pilate!

Peter's Denial


MAID BY THE FIRE:

I think I've seen you somewhere – I remember
You were with that man they took away
I recognize your face

PETER:

You've got the wrong man lady I don't know him
And I wasn't where he was tonight – never near the place

SOLDIER:

That's strange for I am sure I saw you with him
You were right by his side and yet you denied

PETER:

I tell you I was never ever with him

OLD MAN:

But I saw you too – it looked just like you

PETER:

I don't know him!

MARY MAGDALENE:

Peter – don't you know what you have said
You've gone and cut him dead

PETER:

I had to do it don't you see?
Or else they'd go for me

MARY MAGDALENE:

It's what he told us you would do -
I wonder how he knew...

Pilate And Christ


PILATE:

Who is this broken man cluttering up my hallway?
Who is this unfortunate?

SOLDIER:

Someone Christ – King of the Jews

PILATE:

Oh, so this is Jesus Christ, I am really quite surprised
You look so small – not a king at all
We all know that you are news – but are you king?
King of the Jews?

JESUS:

That's what you say

PILATE:

What do you mean by that?
That is not an answer
You're deep in trouble friend -
Someone Christ – King of the Jews
How can someone in your state be so cool about your fate?
An amazing thing – this silent king
Since you come from Galilee then you need not come to me
You're Herod's race! You're Herod's case!

MOB:

Ho-Ho Sanna Hey Sanna Sanna Sanna Ho
Sanna Hey Sanna Ho and how
Hey J.C., J.C. Please explain to me
You had everything where is it now?

King Herod's Song


HEROD:

Jesus I am overjoyed to meet you face to face
You've been getting quite a name all around the place
Healing cripples raising from the dead
And now I understand you're God at least that's what you've said
So you are the Christ, you're the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you're divine – change my water into wine
That's all you need do and I'll know it's all true
C'mon King of the Jews
Jesus you just won't believe the hit you've made around here
You are all we talk about the wonder of the year
Oh what a pity if it's all a lie
Still I'm sure that you can rock the cynics if you try
So you are the Christ, you're the great Jesus Christ
Prove to me that you're no fool walk across my swimming pool
If you do that for me then I'll let you go free
C'mon King of the Jews
I only ask what I ask any superstar
What is it that you have got that puts you where you are?
I am waiting yes I'm a captive fan
I am dying to be shown that you are not just any man
So if you are the Christ yes the great Jesus Christ
Feed my household with this bread – you can do it on your
head
Or has something gone wrong? Why do you take so long?
C'mon King of the Jews
Hey! Aren't you scared of me Christ? Mr. Wonderful Christ?
You're a joke you're not the Lord – you are nothing but a
fraud
Take him away – he's got nothing to say!
Get out you king of the Jews! Get out of my life!

Could We Start Again Please?


MARY MAGDALENE

I've been living to see you
Dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this
This was unexpected
What do I do now?
Could we start again please?
Could we start again?

I've been very hopeful, so far
Now for the first time
I think we're going wrong
Hurry up and tell me
This is just a dream
Oh could we start again please?
Could we start again?

PETER

I think you've made your point now
You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home
Before it gets too frightening
We ought to call a halt
So could we start again please?
Could we start again?
Could we start again?
Could we start again?
Could we start again?

Wish I could reassure you
Wish I could talk to you and tell you how I feel
I've been very careless
This I don't deny
But could we start again please?
Could we start again?

You surely know I love you,
But something in me stands aside, and lets you slip away.
Perhaps that's what you wanted,
Perhaps I want that too.
Oh could we start again please?
Could we start again?
Could we start again please?

Judas' Death


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 gonna blame
I don't believe he knows I acted for our good
I'd save him all this suffering if I could
Don't believe... our good... save him... if I could

PRIEST 3:

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 vengeance
The mob turned against him – you 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 shall be dragged through the slime and the mud!
I have been spattered with innocent blood
I shall 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?
My mind is in 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!

CHOIR:

Poor old Judas
So long Judas

Trial Before Pilate


PILATE:

And so the king is once again my guest
And why is this? Was Herod unimpressed?

CAIAPHAS:

We turn to Rome to sentence Nazareth
We have no law to put a man to death
We need him crucified – it's all you have to do
We need him crucified – it's all you have to do

PILATE:

Talk to me Jesus Christ
You have been brought here – manacled, beaten
By your own people – do you have the first idea why you de-
serve it?
Listen, King of the Jews
Where is your kingdom?
Look at me – am I a Jew?

JESUS:

I have got no kingdom in this world -
I'm through, through, through!

MOB:

Talk to me Jesus Christ!

JESUS:

There may be a kingdom somewhere – if you only knew

PILATE:

Then you're a king?

JESUS:

It's you that say I am
I look for truth and find that I get damned

PILATE:

But what is truth? Is truth unchanging law?
We both have truths – are mine the same as yours?

*MOB:**

Crucify him!

PILATE:

What do you mean? You'd crucify your king?

MOB:

We have no king but Caesar!

PILATE:

He's done no wrong – no not the slightest thing

MOB:

We have no king but Caesar! Crucify him!

PILATE:

He's done no wrong – no not the slightest thing

MOB:

We have no king but Caesar! Crucify him!

PILATE:

I see no reason – I find no evil
This man is harmless so why does he upset you?
He's just misguided – thinks he's important
But to keep you vultures happy I shall flog him

MOB:

Crucify him!

(Thirty nine lashes)


PILATE:

Where are you from Jesus? What do you want Jesus? Tell me
You've got to be careful – you could be dead soon – could
well be
Why do you not speak when I have your life in my hands?
How can you stay quiet? I don't believe you understand

JESUS:

You have nothing in your hands
Any power you have comes to you from far beyond
Everything is fixed and you can't change it

PILATE:

You're a fool Jesus Christ – how can I help you?

MOB:

Pilate! Crucify him!
Remember Caesar – you have a duty
To keep the peace so crucify him!
Remember Caesar – you'll be demoted, you'll be deported
Crucify him!

PILATE:

Don't let me stop your great self-destruction
Die if you want to you misguided martyr
I wash my hands of your demolition
Die if you want to you innocent puppet!

Superstar


VOICE OF JUDAS:

Every time I look at you I don't understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand
You'd have managed better if you'd had it planed
Why'd you choose such a backward time and such a strange
land?
If you'd come today you would have reached a whole nation
Israel is 4 BC had no mass communication
Don't you get me wrong – I only want to know

CHOIR:

Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ!
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ Superstar!
Do you think you're what they say you are?

VOICE OF JUDAS:

Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
Who d'you think besides yourself's the pick of the crop?
Buddha was he where it's at? Is he where you are?
Could Mohammed move a mountain or was it just PR?
Did you mean to die like that? Was that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death would be a record-breaker?
Don't you get me wrong – I only know

CHOIR:

Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ!
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ Supersta
