Overture Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Every time I look at you
I don't understand
Why you let the things you did
Get so out of hand
Verse 2
You'd have managed better
If you'd had it planned
Now why'd you choose such a backward time
And such a strange land?
Verse 3
If you'd come today
You could have reached the whole nation
Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication
Don't you get me wrong
Verse 4
Only want to know
Verse 5
Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Verse 6
Jesus Christ
Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?
Verse 7
Jesus Christ
Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?
Verse 8
Tell me what you think
About your friends at the top
Now who d'you think besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Verse 9
Buddah was he where it's at?
Is he where you are?
Could Muhammmed move a mountain
Or was that just PR?
Verse 10
Did you mean to die like that?
Was that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death
Would be a record breaker?
