"Gethsemane (I Only Wanted to Say)"

[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
I'd wanna know, I'd wanna know, my God
I'd wanna see, I'd wanna see, my God
I'd wanna see, I'd wanna see, my God

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
I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
I'd have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord
I'd have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord
If I die, what would be my reward?
If I die, what would be my reward?
I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord
I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord

Why should I die?
Oh, why should I die?
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 you wanting me to die
You're far too keen on "where" and "how" but not so hot on "why"

Alright, I'll die
Just watch me die
See how I die
See how I die
Oh, watch me die
Oh, watch me die

Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
After all I 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 be done
Destroy your only son
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
Now, before I change my mind
