The Arrest - Jesus Christ Superstar/Soundtrack Version Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
(Judas)
There he is
They're all asleep, the fools
Verse 2
(Jesus)
Judas, must you betray me
With a kiss?
Verse 3
(Peter and Apostles)
What's the buzz
Tell me what's happening
Hang on Lord
We're gonna fight for you
Verse 4
(Jesus)
Put away your sword
Don't you know that it's all over
It was nice but now it's gone
Why are you obsessed with fighting?
Stick to fishing from now on
Verse 5
(Crowd)
Tell me Christ how you feel tonight
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?
Do you think that you may retire?
Did you think you would get much higher?
How do you view your coming trial?
Have your men proved all worthwhile?
Verse 6
Come with us to see Caiaphas
You'll just love the high priest's house
You'll just love seeing Caiaphas
You'll just die in the high priest's house
Verse 7
Come on God this is not like you
Let us know what you're gonna do
You know what your supporters feel
You'll escape in the final reel
Verse 8
Tell me Christ how you feel tonight
Do you plan to put up a fight?
Do you feel that you've had the breaks?
What would you say were your big mistakes?
Verse 9
Come with us to see Caiaphas
You just love the high priest's house
You just love seeing Caiaphas
You'll just die in the high priest's house
Verse 10
Now we have him, now we got him
Now we have him, now we got him
Verse 11
(Caiaphas)
Jesus you must realize
The serious charges facing you
You say you're the son of God
In all your handouts
Well is it true?
Verse 12
(Jesus)
That's what you say
You say that I am
