Outside I hear them talking
Could it be it's me they're mocking
An eye for an eye is all that matters anymore

Pilate put me in this prison
And I deserve what I've been given
A life for a life and that's the one I'm dying for

I caught the eye of a man who was beaten
I saw the truth, even I believed him
Now I can tell from my cell, who they're wantin' more

I hear them cry, "Release Barabbas!"
In disbelief I turned to Jesus
He looked at me and He said go free, you're the one I'm dying for.

For the one who is hurting and the one who has done wrong
For the one who needs healing and feels like hope is gone
For the weary who can't carry his cross anymore
You're the one, You're the one I'm dying for

For the one with all the questions and the one who just believes
For the one who casts the first stone and the one down on her knees
For the weary who can't carry his cross anymore
You're the one, You're the one
You're the one, You're the one I'm dying for
