And so the King Is once again my guest And why is this?
Was Herod unimpressed? We turned 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 Talk to me, Jesus Christ You have been brought here Manacled, beaten by Your own people Do You have the first idea Why You deserve it? Listen, King of the Jews Where is Your kingdom? Look at me, am I a Jew? I have got no kingdom in this world I'm through, through, through There may be a kingdom for me Somewhere if I only knew You're a king Yes You can see I am I look for truth And find that I get damned What is truth? Is truth unchanging law? We both have truths Are mine the same as Yours? Crucify Him, crucify Him What do you mean You'd crucify your king? We have no king but Caesar He's done no wrong No, not the slightest thing We have no king but Caesar Crucify Him 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 Crucify, crucify One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven Twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen Nineteen, twenty, twenty one, twenty two, twenty three, twenty four Twenty five, twenty six, twenty seven, twenty eight, twenty nine Thirty, thirty one, thirty two, thirty three, thirty four Thirty five, thirty six, thirty seven, thirty eight, thirty nine 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 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 You're a fool, Jesus Christ How can I help You? Crucify Him, crucify Him, remember Caesar You have a duty to keep the peace So crucify Him, You'll be demoted You'll be deported so crucify him 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
