Heaven on their minds (Video)

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 get 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, your 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 :|


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

Listen, Jesus, to the warning I give
Please remember that I want us to live
But |: come on :| he won't listen to me
Come on, listen, listen to me
Come on and listen to me!
