Then We Are Decided lyrics[CAIAPHAS]
We've been sitting on the fence for far too long [ANNAS]
Why let him upset us?
Caiaphas, let him be
All those imbeciles will see
He really doesn't matter[CAIAPHAS]
Jesus is important
We've let him go his way before
And while he starts a major war
We theorize and chatter[ANNAS]
He's just another Scripture thumping hack from Galilee[CAIAPHAS]
The difference is they call him "king,"
The difference frightens meWhat 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?[ANNAS]
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[CAIAPHAS]
Put yourself in my place
I can hardly step aside
Cannot let my hands be tied
I am law and orderWhat about our priesthood?
Don't you see that we could fall
If we are to last at all
We cannot be divided[ANNAS]
Then say so to the council
But don't rely on subtlety
Frighten them, or they won't see
Then we are decided?[ANNAS]
Then we are decided
