Lyrics:
Voice of Judas:(Carl Anderson)
VOICE OF JUDAS

Every time 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’d had it planned.
Why’d you choose such a backward time in such a strange land?
If you’d come today you could have reached a whole nation.
Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication.
Don’t you get me wrong.
I only want to know.

CHOIR

Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ,
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ Superstar,
Do you think you’re what they say you are?

VOICE OF JUDAS

Tell me what you think about your friends at the top.
Who’d you think besides yourself’s the pick of the crop?
Buddah, was he where it’s at? Is he where you are?
Could Mahomet move a mountain, or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that? Was that a mistake, or
Did you know your messy death would be a record breaker?
Don’t you get me wrong.
I only want to know.

CHOIR

Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ,
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ Superstar,
Do you think you’re what they say you are?
(Repeat)

jesus christ superstar! what a creation! i still, after all these years can taste the feelings that were overwhelming me when i first watched this revolutionary, for the time, and still as i can gather, film..a very very young girl, in a province at the end of the world, so far from where everything was happening, and in the middle of dictatorship in my country..we had no information at all, no knowledge of anything, but i could feel as i was watching this film, that a revolution is happening in my days and, most important, that i was part of it..many many years ago..now..oh, no, it’s no time now to make the late account but, today as i came to youtube, to listen once again this great creation of sir Arthur Loyd Weber, after all this talk about his participation in the eurovision contest, i could feel again..a great creation is always fresh..even if the revolution of out times didn’t have the desired results..maybe..
