You opened the eyes of those who were blind
I opened the throats of the innocent
Your presence brought healing to broken mankind
My presence brought torturous torment
(I can still hear their screams in my mind)
Now between us the masses pass judgment
Naked before them - the wolf and the lamb
One man they'll deliver, one they will damn
The devil or angel, which will go free?
Which one will writhe on the crucible tree?
Plumb the depths to this sea of insanity
Find the lack of mankind in humanity
My jaws are still wet with the lifeblood I drew
From the hearts of their brothers and friends
So I curse at the crowd and I spit upon you
It's a joke, we both know how this ends
What more proof do they need to pursue?
Kill me now while the madness descends
Their verdict rings out like a clarion bell
Like a kiss from the lips of Lord Judas
The rabble condemns the Anointed to hell
And I know I shall never forget this
For you've taken my place in the furnace
You will die on the cross of Barabbas
