Heaven On Their Minds Lyrics

Artist: Jesus Christ Superstar
Album: Jesus Christ Superstar Soundtrack

My mind is clearer now
At last
All too well
I can see
Where we all
Soon will be
If you strip away
The myth
From the man
You will see
Where we all
Soon will be

You've started to believe
The things they say of you
You really do believe
This talk of God is true

And all the good you've done
Will soon be swept away
You've begun to matter more
Than the things you say

Listen Jesus
I don't like what I see
All I ask is that you listen to me
And remember
I've been your right hand man all along
You have set them all on fire
They think they've found the new Messiah
And they'll hurt you when they find they're wrong

I remember when this whole thing began
No talk of God then, we called you a man
And believe me
My admiration for you hasn't died
But every word you say today
Gets twisted 'round some other way
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied

Nazareth's most famous son
Should have stayed a great unknown
Like his father carving wood
He'd have made good
Tables, chairs and oaken chests
Would have suited Jesus best
He'd have caused nobody harm
No one alarm

Listen Jesus, do you care for your race?
Don't you see we must keep in our place?
We are occupied
Have you forgotten how put down we are?
I am frightened by the crowd
For we are getting much too loud
And they'll crush us if we go too far
If we go too far

Listen Jesus to the warning I give
Please remember that I want us to live
But it's sad to see our chances weakening with ev'ry hour
All your followers are blind
Too much heaven on their minds
It was beautiful, but now it's sour
Yes it's all gone sour
Ah --- ah ah ah --- ah
God Jesus, it's all gone sour

Listen Jesus to the warning I give
Please remember that I want us to live
So come on, come on, listen to me.
Ah --- ah
Come on, listen, listen to me.
Come on and listen to me.
Ah --- ah

Carl Anderson!
by Trilby on 2/6/2009 2:43am
correct me if I'm wrong, but i'm fairly sure the bit labelled "Jesus" is actually still sung by judas, in the film version judas is alone on top of a cliff is he not?

I love being pedantic

Great song and musical! Whoever wrote the lyrics added one too many lines at the end of the 8th verse. And some words are missing....

by scott on 2/27/2009 10:39am
Trilby, the part that says 'Jesus' is Judas singing the word 'Jesus'....not a part for Jesus to sing.

This song is the best! When I fist listened this song, I shivered! It was something that I can't explain, and this actor/singer is just INCREDIBLE, I fell in love with his voice! It is a nice movie!!

A great singer no doubt. What got to me the most was the message. Very powerful and poignant. It always get me thinking about Judas role in this whole saga. He was the only one thinking straight!!

by John on 3/9/2010 2:29pm
Who sings this
by Pepe on 3/25/2010 5:24am
He aprendido de memoria todas las canciones de Jesucristo Superstar. He visto el video cientos de veces. ¿Seré adicto?. Solo decir que tanto Evita como esta obra me apasionan. Should I have said this in English? I don't think so. You should learn Spanish. It's far more easier.
by CJ on 3/29/2010 3:08am
OK a couple of questions
firstly, who is this Carl Anderson?
cos the one i have got and in fact im watching right now is the one made in 2000 and its the one where all the men are wearing leather jackets! judas is played by Jerome Pradon and he is my favourite actor of all time!!!!!!!
by mandy on 4/6/2010 1:18pm
i love carl anderson!

I think this is an amazing voice, i like the singer: Carl Anderson
by Bobby Havens on 1/10/2012 4:08pm
People always complain about Jerome Pradon`s performance as Judas in the 2000 film . I don`t understand the hate ! I thought BOTH Carl Anderson and Jerome did an AWESOME job as Judas ! They BOTH showed his anger , confusion , desperation and guilt PERFECTLY albeit in different ways ! Don`t you people understand if Jerome tried to sound like Anderson , his performance would`ve TOTALLY failed ? So , he was wise to make it his own !
by Ella-Jose on 2/12/2012 4:41pm
Hi, I'm playing Judas in the school play we're doing and am performing to over 300 people x I'm in middle school xx x
by Billy D. on 2/28/2012 10:24pm
My favorite song. I have not heard or seen the 2000 version, however Carl Anderson's rendition is nothing short of sheer brilliance. The anguish, the rationale, the sorrow! The voice of Judas Iscariot eternal! (R.I.P.) Carl.
by Billy D. on 2/28/2012 10:31pm
Addendum: This song sets the tone for the entire story from the point of view of Judas. Without the betrayal, there would be no Christianity. He knew what he had to do. And committed suicide. A stunning collaboration by Webber and Rice!
by Billy D. on 2/28/2012 10:40pm
Addendum: (Lyrics)
It's "Nazareth, your famous son ..."
by l3X on 4/22/2012 12:31pm
great musical, love it...
by miklf on 5/12/2012 10:41am
its goooooood song. my favorite
by Sora on 6/26/2012 7:39am
We're doing Jesus Christ Super Star, and I'm gonna try out for Judas, with this. Haha.
by pincopallino321 on 8/13/2012 8:15am
wonderful song as of those of Jesus christ Superstar,of the rest
by The Great Juan on 9/14/2012 6:19am
I hope I could play in Jesus Christ Superstar as Judas even once. :)
by Damajdkand on 10/22/2012 8:07pm
First of all shut up this is a musical that was later made into a movie so all stop with the movie comments. Two, it is not labeled JEsus, judas songs the name Jesus, learn the song
by Fruit loops on 4/19/2013 4:24pm
I have to just let you all know that Tim Minchin is THE Judas
by Ifyouknowwhatimean on 6/5/2013 4:08pm
So beautiful, my favorite musical
by Tapeman on 7/30/2013 9:00am
I love this song! So much passion and energy. But don't turn it into a history lesson. The whole play "Jesus Christ Superstar" is not a history lesson. It is quite possible based on the text that Judas stole from their own little treasury (bag of money of which Judas was in charge). He had a political agenda. He didn't understand what the Scriptures he grew up with, were all about (God's redemption of mankind). He betrayed God's son, the second part of the triune God. Judas's story is a sad and tragic.
If you are open minded, I strongly suggest you study the uniqueness of the Judeo-Christian Bible, and run it through the same filter you run all ancient history through.
If you read a comentary by a doubter, then read a comentary by a believer. Contrary to popular culture, there are thousands and thousands of absolutely brilliant men and women with amazing pedigrees and skills who are or have become died in the wool believers. You will be blown away!! But I do love that play.
by olet on 3/6/2014 9:18pm
I never miss listening to the album Jesus Christ Supestar with original cast Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson... and this song is one that I never can help but repeat again and again.. mighty vocals and performance!
by Efgea 25 1989 on 3/26/2015 12:08pm

I try to translate this song to Dutch but it's harder than i think.
I've got an idea to translate it for a new version of a tv show called the passion because the songs they sing are not related to Jesus but are songs of famous Dutch artists.
by Aaron on 12/2/2015 6:19pm
Most annoying song on the face of the earth
by you smell aaron on 3/22/2016 10:54am
by Joost on 3/30/2016 1:02pm
Hmm, I still like the original version of Murrey Head the most. (The version of 1970). Carl Andersen only came to the show in 1971 I think.
by Why would you say that Aaron on 12/13/2016 3:52pm
Why would you go to a song just to make fun of it, Aaron??????
by Mark Burrows on 5/5/2017 5:35pm
It still surprises that folks haven't got the clarity that there are multiple recordings of Jesus Christ Superstar. The first was the Concept Album which was a collect of various performers from the folk and rock industry including vocalists and musicians. The second version was the first recorded Broadway version. Then there was the Movie Soundtrack which had different lyric arrangements and two different songs. Then came a few more Broadway recordings. The original concept album was the first and only time such a thing was done by some one other than a rock band. A feather in the cap of Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. They never did it again. The Who recorded three versions of Tommy, the original concept album 1969, then with the London Symphony Orchestra in 1972 and then finally as a movie soundtrack in 1975. The second and third versions had guest performers. Opinion is irrelevant, it is all a matter of respect for the perspective.
