John Legend

"The Last Supper"

[APOSTLES]
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine (pool of wine)
Don't disturb me now; I can see the answers
'Til this evening is this morning, life is fine
Always hoped that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll still talk about us when we've died

[JESUS]
The end
Is just a little harder when brought about by friends
For all you care, this wine could be my blood
For all you care, this bread could be my body
The end
This is my blood you drink
This is my body you eat
If you would remember me when you eat and drink

I must be mad thinking I'll be remembered
Yes, I must be out of my head!
Look at your blank faces!
My name will mean nothing
Ten minutes after I'm dead!
One of you denies me
One of you betrays me -

[APOSTLES]
(spoken indistinctly)
Not I! Who could? Impossible!

[JESUS]
Peter will deny me in just a few hours
Three times will deny me - and that's not all I see
One of you here dining, one of my twelve chosen
Will leave to betray me -

[JUDAS]
Cut out the dramatics! You know very well who -

[JESUS]
Why don't you go do it?

[JUDAS]
You want me to do it?

[JESUS]
Hurry, they're waiting

[JUDAS]
If you knew why I do it...

[JESUS]
I don't care why you do it!

[JUDAS]
To think I admired you, for now I despise you

[JESUS]
You liar, you Judas

[JUDAS]
You want me to do it!
What if I just stayed here and ruined your ambitions?
Christ, you deserve it!

[JESUS]
Hurry, you fool, hurry and go
Save me your speeches, I don't wanna know
Go!

[APOSTLES]
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine
What's that in the bread it's gone to my head
'Til this morning is this evening, life is fine
Always hoped that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll all talk about us when we die

[JUDAS]
You sad pathetic man; see where you've brought us to?
Our ideals die around us, all because of you
And now the saddest cut of all:
Someone has to turn you in
Like a common criminal, like a wounded animal
A jaded mandarin
Like a jaded mandarin
Like a jaded jaded faded, faded, jaded mandarin

[JESUS]
Get out! They're waiting! Get out!
Woah!
They're waiting for you

[JUDAS]
Every time I look at you, I don't understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand
You'd have managed better if, if you'd had it planned, woah yeah

[APOSTLES]
Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine
Don't disturb me now; I can see the answers
'Til this evening is this morning, life is fine
Always hoped that I'd be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll still talk about us when we've died
