Little orphans in the snow
With nowhere to call a home
Start their singing
Waiting through the summertime
To thaw your hearts in wintertime
That’s why they’re singing
Waiting for a sign to turn blood into wine
The sweet taste in your mouth — turned bitter in its glass
Israel… in Israel
Israel… in Israel
Shattered fragments of the past
Meet in veins on the stained glass
Like the lifeline in your palm
Red and green reflects the scene
Of a long forgotten dream
There were princes and there were kings
Now hidden in disguise — cheap wrappings of lies
Keep your heart alive with a song from inside
Even though we’re all alone
We are never on our own when we’re singing
There’s a man who’s looking in
And he smiles a toothless grin
Because he’s singing
See some people shine with glee
But their song is jealousy
Their hate is clanging — maddening
In Israel… will they sing Happy Noel
Israel… in Israel
Israel… in Israel
In Israel will they sing Happy Noel

[Verse 1]
Judas:
Mm, everytime 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 you’d had it planned
Now why’d you choose such a backwards time
And such and strange land

[Verse 2]
If you’d come today
You could have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4 BC
Had no mass communication

[Pre-Chorus]
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong

(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) Only want to know
(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) I only want to know

[Chorus]
Choir:
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you, what have you sacrificed
Jesus Christ, Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are?

Do you think you’re what they say you are?

[Verse 3]
Judas:
Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
Now who’d you think, besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Buddha was he where it’s at?
Is he where you are?
Could Mohammed move a mountain or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that
Was that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death would be a record breaker?

[Pre-Chorus]
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong

(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) Only want to know
(Only want to know) Only want to know
(Only want to know, now) I only want to know

Judas:
My God, I saw him
He looked three-quarters dead
And he was so bad
I had to turn my head
You beat him so hard
That he was bent and lame
And I know who everybody’s
Going to blame
I don’t believe he knows
I acted for our good
I’d save him all the suffering
If I could
Don’t believe our good
Save him if I could

Annas:
Cut the confessions
Forget the excuses
I don’t understand why
You’re filled with remorse
All that you’ve said
Has come true with a vengeance
The mob has turned against him
You’ve backed the right horse

Caiaphas:
What you have done
Will be the saving of Israel
You’ll be remembered forever for this
And not only that
You’ve been paid for your efforts
Pretty good wages
For one little kiss

Judas:
Christ!
I know you can’t hear me
But I only did what you wanted me to
Christ!
I’d sell out the nation
For I have been saddled
With the murder of you
I have been spattered
With innocent blood
I should be dragged
Through the slime and the mud
I have been spattered
With innocent blood
I should be dragged
Through the slime and the slime and the slime and the mud

I don’t know how to love him
I don’t know why he moves me
He’s a man
He’s just a man
He’s not a King
He’s just the same
As anyone I know
He scares me so
When he’s cold and dead
Will he let me be?
Does he love?
Does he love me too?
Does he care for me?
Oh, God

My mind is in darkness now
Oh my God I am sick
I’ve been used
And you knew
All the time
God I’ll never know
Why you chose me for your crime
Your foul bloody crime
You, you have murdered me
You have murdered me
Murdered me
Murdered me
Murdered me

Crowd/choir:
So long, Judas poor old Judas
So long, Judas poor old Judas
So long, Judas poor old Judas

Everytime I look at you don’t understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand?
Youd have managed better if you’d had it planned
Whyd you choose such a backward time and such a strange land?
If you’d come today you could have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4 bc had no mass communication
Don’t you get me wrong – I only want to know

[Intro: David McCreary]
Coming to the stage now
Is our new singer, first time on television, though you’ve probably heard of him
He is the president of the [?] day fan club
Actually I hear that Sinatra has a restraining order against him
Please, help me welcome him to the stage, Tyler Joseph

[Tyler Joseph]
Oh no, no

[Verse 1]
O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appears
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

No, no
Oh no

[Verse 2]
O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

Oh no, no, no
Oh no, no, no, no, no

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

[Outro: David McCreary & Tyler Joseph]
Tyler Jefferson everybody, round of applause
Wow, that was dark
That was dark
You do realise that it’s Christmas
The carols great
Carol is greats, but so is Betty but she doesn’t make me want to cry
I hear you’re going on tour
Yeah, my band and I
Oh your band, let me stop you right there
Elvis never needed a band
I’m not Elvis
You didn’t need to tell me twice
Tyler Rae-Jepsen everybody
Thank you, so Merry Christmas Tyler
Get off the stage
Ma, I’m tryna
Bring back Tyler, he’s got something, am I right

[Verse 1: B.o.B]
Yo, I don’t care who listening
I find it kind of sickening
We send billions to Israel
But shit on Flint, Michigan
A country founded off of immigrants
Now we want to build a wall to keep out all the immigrants
What you witnessing
Military exercises demonstrated on citizens
Anti-war petitioning
Drone strike incoming
Homeless vets decorate the street, can’t get no income in
How do you save a world that can’t be saved?
How do you raise a child that won’t behave? (Preach)
Waking up from the lies, I feel betrayed
I’m guessing the rabbit hole we dug was actually just a grave
Skeletons in the closet, they fossilized
Niggas want the truth sugar coated and carmelized
Life is like a science fiction book where the author dies
Well I ain’t dead yet cuz the hit hadn’t been authorized

[Chorus]
I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
I will survive, I walk alone
Look in my eye
So give me justice, give me peace
Or give my freedom back at least
So we can meet up in the street, you decide

[Verse 2: B.o.B]
Who you bow to?
Elected councils, full of scoundrels
Who now rule, the world around you
While wearing houseshoes
They clown you
You wear your house, or your whole house full
Regimes don’t die; they change they name and the accounts move
Life goes on with or without you
Words fall on deaf ears, I think they soundproof
The sound of justice makes us cringe
But how can we stand the sound?
You can’t even stand your ground
A noose around your neck, the sharpest minds will cut them down
Caught inside the web, the internet is tightly wound
Every day a hundred k feel more like a couple thou’
What’s a dollar to a pound?
What’s a pound to the crown?
Look, ay
I’m sick of waiting, man this flag i’m sick of waving
No more participating
Time to form our own nation
You call it integration, I call that discrimination
They say it’s risk i’m taking
I call it decision making

[Chorus]
I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
I will survive, I walk alone
Look in my eye
So give me justice, give me peace
Or give my freedom back at least
So we can meet up in the street, you decide

[Verse 3: B.o.B]
You not an activist, you’re more like a re-activist
False flags, crisis actors trying to re-enact some shit
Stories don’t match, I never believe half the shit
While they’re sneaking pass a law we’re easily distracted, ay
Trying to get through to these dense fucks
You’re too stupid to insult
I say the shit anybody can prove
I don’t know, guess if it rhymes it’s got to be true
Look, cheap tricks and fabricated speeches
Blonde hair, blue eyes – they even fabricated Jesus
Just look at the salary paid to teachers
It’s obvious they don’t want us to graduate into leaders
Clearly, in court videos don’t prove much
Why is news cameras in the courtroom, huh?
Even if it’s just a game, I hear the signal louder
I think I got the message, they don’t really care about us

[Chorus]
I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
I will survive, I walk alone
Look in my eye
So give me justice, give me peace
Or give my freedom back at least
So we can meet up in the street, you decide

God rest ye merry gentlemen

To save us all from Satan’s pow’r
When we were gone astray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem, in Israel
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
The which His Mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

[Verse 3]
Fear not then, said the Angel
Let nothing you affright
This day is born a Saviour
Of a pure Virgin bright
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan’s pow’r and might
O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Hey!

Close every door to me
Hide all the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light
Do what you want with me
Hate me and laugh at me
Darken my daytime
And torture my night
If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers
Lie far from this world

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel are never alone
For I know I shall find
My own peace of mind
For I have been promised
A land of my own

(Choir)
Close every door to me
Hide All the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light

La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la

(Joseph)
Just give me a number
Instead of my name
Forget all about me
And let me decay

I do not matter
I’m only one person
Destroy me completely
Then throw me away
If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers
Lie far from this world

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel
Are never alone
For we know we shall find
Our own piece of mind
For we have been promised
A land of our own
