Then Are We Decided? Lyrics

Artist: Jesus Christ Superstar

We've been sitting on the fence for far too long

Why let him upset us? Ciaphas, let him be.
All those imbecils 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 Romans? 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't remember this line....)
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 devided.


Then say so to the council, but don't rely on subtly.
Frighten them, or they won't see.

Then we are decided?

Then we are decided.

my version doesnt have this fair...

this song is ONLY in the 1973 film version and was written for the film, due to the fact it was being played to an American audience. They feared that the viewers would be to dimwitted to understand what was happening unless they spelled it out for them. so if you are doing a stage version and looking for lyrics leave this out!!!

Annas tells Caiaphas not to rely on subtlety, not subtly.

Put yourself in my place.
I can hardly step aside.
Cannot let my hands be tied, I am law and order.

The line you can't remember...
"I can hardly step aside".
