Gethsemane

[Jesus:]
I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cup away from me for I don't want to taste
Its poison
Feel it burn me, I have changed, I'm not as sure as
When we started
 
Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
Listen, surely I've exceeded expectations tried for three years
Seems like thirty
Could you ask as much from any other man?
 
But if I die
See the saga through and do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree
I'd wanna know, I'd wanna know my God (2x)
I'd wanna see I'd wanna see my God (2x)
 
Why I should die
Would I be more noticed than I ever was before?
Would the things I've said and done matter anymore?
I'd have to know, I'd have to know my Lord (2x)
I'd have to see I'd have to see my Lord (2x)
If I die what will be my reward? (2x)
I'd have to know, I'd have to know my Lord (2x)
 
Why should I die? (2x)
Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain
Show me there's a reason for your wanting me to die
You're far too keen on where and how and not so hot on why
 
Alright! I'll die!
Just watch me die!
See how I die!
 
Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
After all I've tried for three years seems like ninety
Why then am I scared to finish what I started
What you started - I didn't start it
God, thy will is hard
But you hold every card
I will drink your cup of poison
Nail me to your cross and break me
Bleed me, beat me, kill me, take me now -
Before I change my mind
 
Thanks!
