APOSTLES
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a 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
The end...
Is 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'll be 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
No! Not I! Who would?! Impossible!

JESUS
Peter will deny my 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 runied your ambition.
Christ you deserve it.

JESUS
Hurry, you 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 a 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 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 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 and it's all because of you.
And now the sadest cut of all:
Someone has to turn you in.
Like a common criminal, like a wounded animal.
A jaded mandarin,
A jaded mandarin,
As a jaded, jaded, faded, jaded, jaded mandarin.

JESUS
Get out they're waiting!
Get out, they are waiting!
Oh, they're waiting for you!

JUDAS
Everytime 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 had it planned...

APOSTLES
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 all talk about us when we've died.
