and the we are decided lyrics – andrew lloyd webber

then we are decided

we’ve been sitting on the fence
for far too long

why let him upset us?
caiaphas, let him be
all those imbeciles will see
he really doesn’t matter

but jesus is important!
we’ve let him go his way before
and while he starts a major war
we theorize and chatter

he’s just another scripture
thumping hack from galilee

the difference is they call him king
the difference frightens me!

what about the roman’s?
when they see king jesus crowned
do you think they’ll stand around
cheering and applauding?
what about our people?
if they see we’ve lost our nerve
don’t you think that they deserve
something more rewarding?

they’ve got what they want
they think so anyway
if he’s what they want
why take their toy away?
he? s a craze

put yourself in my place
i can hardly step aside
i cannot let my hands be tied
i am law and order
what about our priesthood?
don’t you see that we could fall?
if we are to last at all
we cannot be divided

then say so to the council
but don’t rely on subtlety
frighten them, or they won’t see

then we are decided?

then we are decided
