MC Lars Judas Priest Lyrics

So I ran with nowhere to go
Through the streets of Galilee these faces I don't know
These people all look angry - do they know I killed their God?
For 30 coins of silver I devised the sickest plot
Pontius Pilate washed his hands goodbye of this
So Caiaphas and I devised a plan, sold Christ out with a biased kiss
I'm trying just to get away, he's dying it's my fault
Was he lunatic? Was he the Son of God?
As they took him away on that day, heard Paul and Peter say
"It's you who did betray," I guess it was my fate
Christ was whipped and beaten mocked by people on the hill
Now everyone is quiet 'cause they know our savior has been killed
I went to Calvary - he was hanging from the cross
Crown of thorns upon his head, hope was tossed away and lost
He looked at me and the final thing he said
Was "I forgive you Judas", closed his eyes and he was dead

(Golgotha!) They put my homie on a cross
(Golgotha!) Right now I feel all could be lost
(Golgotha!) Was only doing what you said
Now these people are all talking
They say Jesus Christ is dead

[CHORUS]
(Golgotha!) I know not why I do
This thing you asked me to
(Golgotha!) Upon this cross you lie
To show you cannot die

Judas Priest, I wrote a book about it, never made the Bible
And they say my story's libel I've been feeling suicidal
But the devil's hands are idle and they have nothing to do
With this hell on earth I'm living in, this stuff that I've been through
Looking for a place of comfort somewhere deep inside
Ever since my friend died, all I want to do is hide,
All I want to do is die, tell me why am I so vilified?
Why am I so ostracized? There were 11 other guys!
Synoptic Gospels only three of them explain
Mathew, Mark and Luke's account of what happened that day
But I knew Jesus Christ, I knew him very well
He sent me on a mission some might say would lead to hell
I went to Calvary - Christ was dying on the hill
I went to Calvary - everybody stood real still
I went to Calvary - to see if it was true
The plan he made went through, what he asked me to do
I went to Calvary - Christ was hanging from the cross
Crown of thorns upon his head, hope was not lost
He looked at me and the final thing he said
Was "I forgive you Judas", closed his eyes and he was dead.

[CHORUS]

(Golgotha!) Shall I build your conspiracy?
(Golgotha!) When it all seems lunacy
(Golgotha!) Christ you were a lunatic
(Golgotha!) Were you just a lunatic?

I know now why I do
This thing you asked me to
Upon this cross you lie
To show you cannot die.

Christ, you were a lunatic.
Were you just a lunatic?
