Heaven on their Minds - Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice


    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


    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 be 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 you if they think you've lied

    Nazareth's most 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
    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 ev'ry 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
    Ah --- ah ah ah --- ah
    God Jesus, it's all gone sour

    Listen Jesus to the warning I give
    Please remember that I want us to live
    So come on, come on, listen to me.
    Ah --- ah
    Come on, listen, listen to me.
    Come on and listen to me.
    Ah --- ah
