Damned For All Time / Blood Money

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice and appears on the musical soundtrack Jesus Christ Superstar (1973).

Judas:
Now if I help you
It matters that you see
This sorta kind of things are coming hard to me
It's taken me some time
To work out what to do
I waited the whole thing up
Before I came to you
I have not thought at all
About my own reward
I really didn't come here
Of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time

I came because I had to
I'm the one who saw
Jesus can't control it
Like he did before
And furthermore I know
That Jesus thinks so too
Jesus wouldn't mind that I was here with you
I have not thought at all
About my own reward
I really didn't come here
Of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time

Annas, you're a friend
A holy man and wise
Caiaphas, my friend
I know you sympathise

Why are we the prophets?
Why are we the ones?
Who see the sad solution
Now what must be done?
I have not thought at all
About my own reward
I really didn't come here
Of my own accord
Just don't say I'm
Damned for all time

Annas:
Cut the protesting
Forget the excuses
We want information
Get up off the floor

Caiaphas:
We have the papers
We need to arrest him


You know his movements
We know the law

Annas:
Your help in this matter
Won't go unrewarded

Caiaphas:
We'll pay you in silver
Cash on the nail
We just need to know
Where the soldiers can find him
With no crowd around him
Then we can't fail

Judas:
I don't want your blood money

Caiaphas:
Oh, that doesn't matter
Our expenses are good

Judas:
I don't need your blood money

Annas:
But you might as well take it
We think that you should

Caiaphas:
Think of the things
You can do with that money
Choose any charity
Give to the poor
We've noted your motives
We've noted your feelings
This isn't blood money
It's

Annas: (spoken)
A fee

Caiaphas:
A fee nothing more

Judas:
On Thursday night
You'll find him where you want him
Far from the crowds
In the garden of Gethesmene

Well done Judas
Good old Judas
