OVERTURE

HEAVEN ON THEIR MINDS

JUDAS
My mind is clearer now — at last all too well
I can see where we all soon will be
If you strip the myth away from the man
You will see where we ail 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
Ail 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 old 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

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

Listen Jesus to the warning I give
Please remember that I want us to live
But it’s sad to see our chances weaking with every hour
All your followers are blind
Too much heaven on their minds
It was nice but now it’s sour
Yes it’s all gone sour
Bethany, Friday night


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
