The Lyrics

[Jesus]
I'm dying
Look at me on the cross,
Try to see gain not loss
I'm dying.

[Thief on Cross]
I'm dying
[thief angrily mouths words as the sound system makes censure sounds]
[Repentant thief on cross]
Shut up fool This dude's cool
We're dying

Here is my decree You are so nice
to-DAY you-u and me Pa-aradise

[Roman Guard]
I'm lying.
Pilate said hang him up
Make him dead shut him up
Then I saw the sham
Jesus Christ He Am
I'm lying.

[Jesus]
They don't understand they are deceived
Please Father forgive it's Easter Eve

[Mary]
I'm crying.
Don't make fun you would too
If your son said adieu
John it's up to you
Care for her like glue
Johnny don't you mind
I promise you I will be fine
I'm crying!

[Woman with drenched hair and a hair color apron]
I'm dyeing
Look at me on theā€¦
[Conductor inaudibly advises singer that she entered onto the wrong stage. Woman scurries off in embarrassment.]

[Judas]
I'm buying!
I am so very rich
[tempo largo]
I can't go on like this
Expiring!

[Jesus]
I'm dying
[a tempo]
After that just believe
Sins go scat
Life receive
"Why?" is what I ask
Father turns His back
I have mighty thirst
Father I commend
My spirit

[Jesus]
[fff]
I'm risen!
[mf, but fortisendo]
Death you'll gyp work is done
Fellowship through the Son
Now to my discipes
Don't forsake my stripes
Witness all of you
I'm always with you
Ascending!

Please accept my apologies for the title. Especially to anyone who might have mistaken it for an autobiographical announcemen. My health is fine, thank you.
