Democracy According to Barabbas


We chose Barabbas
And we choose him still;
Everyone thinks they’d pick the Messiah —
But no one ever will

Christ is too good for us
with whom shall we drink a beer?
Our dark friend, that’s whom —
then he’d kill us too, no fear

We chose Barabbas
And we’d pick him yet
Everyone says, I’d take the Messiah —
But then what would we get?

When the Lord doth love us
We turn our heads in shame;
Herod, Judas, Barabbas, Cain
our fascination for the darker name

Yes. we chose Barabbas
He’d surely win again
The Lord can’t get elected;
Not one time out of ten.
