Soundtracks – The Temple lyrics

[Crowd and Profiteers]
Roll on up for my price is down
Come on in for the best in town
Take your pick of the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine

Roll on up for my price is down
Come on in for the best in town
Take your pick of the finest wine
Lay your bets on this bird of mine

Name your price I've got everything.
Come and buy. It's all going fast.
Borrow cash on the finest terms.
Hurry now while the while the stocks still last

(Repeat 4x)

[Jesus]
My temple should be a house of prayer,
But you have made it a den of thieves.
GET OUT! Get out.

My time is almost through.
Little left to do.
After all I've tried for three years.
Seems like thirty. Seems like thirty...

[Solos from crowd]
See my eyes, I can hardly see.
See me stand, I can hardly walk.
I believe you, can make me whole.
See my tongue, I can hardly talk.

See my skin I'm a mass of blood.
See my legs, I can hardly stand.
I believe you can make me well.
See my purse, I'm a poor poor man.

[Crowd]
Will you touch, will you mend me, Christ?
Won't you touch, will you heal me, Christ?
Will you kiss? You can cure me, Christ!
Won't you kiss, won't you pay me, Christ?

See my eyes, I can hardly see.
See me stand, I can hardly walk.
I believe you, can make me whole.
See my tongue, I can hardly talk.

See my skin I'm a mass of blood.
See my legs, I can hardly stand.
I believe you can make me well.
See my purse, I'm a poor poor man.

(Repeat 3x)

Will you touch, will you mend me, Christ?
Won't you touch, will you heal me, Christ?
Will you kiss? You can cure me, Christ!
Won't you kiss, won't you pay me, Christ?

[Jesus mixed in with crowd]
Too, many of you
Don't push me
There's too little of me
Don't Crowd me

[Jesus after crowd finishes]
Heal yourselves!
