Jesus Christ Superstar – Damned For All Time lyrics

JUDAS:
Now if I help you, it matters that you see
These sordid kinda things are coming hard to me.
It's taken me some time to work out what to do.
I weighed the whole thing out before I came to you.
I have no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm ...
Damned for all time.

I came because I had to; I'm the one who saw.
Jesus can't control it like he did before.
And furthermore I know that Jesus thinks so too.
Jesus wouldn't mind that I was here with you.
I have no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm ...
Damned for all time.

Annas, you're a friend, a worldly man and wise.
Caiaphas, my friend, I know you sympathise.
Why are we the prophets? Why are we the ones
Who see the sad solution - know what must be done?
I have no thought at all about my own reward.
I really didn't come here of my own accord.
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time.

    This song is Judas arriving where CAIAPHAS and Annas are to make a deal with them to catch Jesus as seen in blood money. he keeps saying that he didn't think about a reward for what he does and claims that he didn't want to come here but was pushed to do so. He keeps asking them not to say he is damned for all time which could reference how the blame for Jesus' death is often put on Judas.
