"Superstar" as written by and Tim Rice Andrew Lloyd Webber....
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 you'd had it planned
Now why'd 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)
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)
Only want to know

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?
Jesus Christ
Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?

Tell me what you think
About your friends at the top
Now who do you think besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Buddah was he where it's at?
Is he where you are?
Could Mohamed 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?

(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

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?
Jesus Christ
Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?

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?
Jesus Christ
Superstar
Do you think you're what they say you are?

    General Commentamazing song. i personally think that this song was actually things that Tim Rice/ Andrew Lloyd Webber want to know. like "why is christianity so special?" "what sets you apart form everyone else who claims to be the way?". and things like that. Thank you Tim Rice/ Andrew Lloyd Webber

    General CommentSo do you really believe Christianity is "the way"?
    Your religion is so full of misconceptions that its really pathetic of you to say so...

    General CommentI know this may sound stupid, but what does PR stand for?

    My OpinionGreat song man! I mostly listen to rock and metal, but this is the one exception for me...although, it is a rock opera, so maybe this counts too.

    General CommentI forgot to mention...I think that the reason that Satin took the form of Judas in this scene was simply to torment Jesus. After all, Judas was Jesus' right hand man, and there was much left unsaid.

    General Commenti like the part
    "if you'd come today
    You could have reached the whole nation
    Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication"

    back when i was a kid, this movie actually made me want to turn to God. It didnt install in me the fear of hell like what the catholic church and religious education did.
