The Lyrics

This is a serious song, almost completely devoid of humor. See detailed explanation of the lyrics in the postscript.
Just gonna stand there and watch Him bleed?
That's alright because His blood is what we need.
Just gonna stand there while Jesus dies?
That's alright because in three days He'll arise.
In three days He'll arise.

I can't take you back in time to see.
I can only tell you what it felt like.
Flesh ripped up and the blood squirts as the nails strike.
He can't breathe, His chest is tight, and He won't fight.
The whole world is wrong. He's right. But people still spite.
Dripping with blood, hear the crowd hate.
It's like a crimson paint and they laugh and want Him to suffer, and suffocate.
He dies and they put Him in the tomb, His prophecy dates Him, the world still hates Him.
And in three days - Wait, where ya going?
"He's maggot food." No He ain't. Keep track.
He's coming right back. Jesus lives again!
We're not insane, cuz we know God is good and God is great.
The only man without sin gave His life, and took the pain.
Whether you're bad or you're worse, the way is the same for all:
Just believe, right now call upon His name.
The Lord does the rest.
He's never gonna die again.
But faith is enough to kill sin.

Just gonna stand there and watch Him bleed?
That's alright because His blood is what you need.
Lord Jesus hanged there and let them chide.
God was right, and I will live because He died.
I'll live because He died.
I'll live because He died.

The chief priests so full of hate they form conspiracy
Judas with 'em they meet and Jesus' disciples never knew what hit 'em.
Jesus snatched from the garden.
Satan's priests gonna get Him
mutilated til you're sick from looking at Him.
The priests all wanna hit Him, wanna do something to hurt Him
and they slap Him in the face, spewing venom in their words when they spit 'em.
They mocked, pulled out half His beard,
scourge whips hit Him nail Him down pin Him.
So lost in their envy that they kill Him.
But we all are the culprit, for all have sinned.
Morons say to heaven there are different ways.
Guess their brains are severed.
Want the way? Trust the Lord today.
Trust in Jesus never? There'll be hell to pay,
screams like broken records play forever.
Don't say that you're a victim, cuz you're to blame.
You won't get another chance.
Hell is no nintendo game. Satan lied again.
Gospel's simple. Must believe Christ is risen.
Trust Him now and call upon His name.

Just gonna stand there and watch Him bleed?
That's alright because His blood is what you need.
Just gonna stand there and watch Him die?
That's alright cuz He'll come back and make us fly.
With faith you're gonna fly.
(The rapture's drawing nigh.)

Don't you know there's lost souls, saved souls, nothing in between,
yet you keep track of your good works like they'll make you clean.
But my sins are just as bad as yours are, but God forgave me.
When it comes to God, the world is blinded.
If you'd read God's book, maybe you'd see your best efforts stink.
Maybe Christianity isn't as crazy as you think.
You should feel what happens when the scourge pour ya and the nails gore ya,
But I know that Christ loved you so much, He took it for ya.
Go outside, pick up the tracts off the sidewalk.
Don't see the severity of your fate when God talks?
My own sins are my fault. Beam in your own eyeball.
Next time you're judged you'll be a smudge on the Bride's wall.
"Next life"? There won't be a next life!
Devils advertise: "Reincarnate all the lies"
The Lord ain't playing games. And He's coming back.
Satan is a liar. Heathen, Don't forget when Jesus lands again
He will stomp you til you're dead and set the world on fire.

Just gonna stand there and let men burn?
That's not right, because Christ wants them all to turn.
Just gonna stand there and let them fry?
Preach it loud that they can live because He died.
I'll live because He died.
In heaven I'll reside.
EXPLANATION OF LYRICS: "Just gonna stand there and watch Him bleed?" The Lord Jesus Christ, who is the only begotten Son of God the Father (Jesus is also God Himself since God is a Trinity - 1 John 5:7), bled to death on a wooden cross that He was nailed to by the Roman government about 33 A.D. at the demands of the Jewish religious leaders who saw Him as a threat to their power. The Romans crucified people in public. "That's alright because His blood is what you need." We avoid hell by having our sins washed away by His blood through faith (Romans 3:25, Revelation 1:5). "Flesh ripped up" Before Jesus was crucified, He was scourged (Matthew 20:19, 27:26, Mark 10:34, 15:15, Luke 18:33, John 19:1), leaving bloody "stripes" all over His body. (Isaiah 53:5 "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.") "He won't fight." Jesus could have stopped them from killing him, but allowed them to for our sakes. (John 10:17-18 "...I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.") "The whole world is wrong. He's right. But people still spite." (John 7:7 "The world...me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil." Romans 5:12 "...all have sinned..." Hebrews 4:14-15 "...Jesus the Son of God...was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." 1 Peter 2:21-22 "...Christ...did no sin..." 1 John 3:5 "...ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.") "hear the crowd hate." When Pilate showed a bloody, scourged Jesus to the angry crowd, they still yelled "Crucify him, crucify him." (John 19:1-6) A little later, when Jesus was on the cross, people "reviled" and mocked Him (Matthew 27:39-43). "He dies and they put Him in the tomb, His prophecy dates Him" Jesus told people ahead of time how long He would be dead (Matthew 12:40). "Whether you're bad or you're worse" Being a "relatively good person" is irrelevant to your salvation; no sinner can be good enough to get to heaven (Psalms 39:5 "...every man at his best state is altogether vanity...") "the way is the same for all" (John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.") "Just believe, right now call upon His name." Do you believe the Lord Jesus has the power to save you from going to hell? Then ask Him to (Romans 10:1-13). "I will live because He died." (Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 "...I declare unto you the gospel...that Christ died for our sins... And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day..." Romans 1:16 "...the gospel of Christ...is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth...") "The chief priests so full of hate they form conspiracy Judas with 'em they meet" They paid Judas Iscariot to lead them to Jesus so they could arrest Him (Matthew 26:14-16). "and Jesus' disciples never knew what hit 'em. Jesus snatched from the garden." They came to arrest Jesus at night when His disciples were sleeping (Matthew 26). "get Him mutilated til you're sick from looking at Him." By the end of Jesus' torture "...his visage was so marred more than any man..." (Isaiah 52:14). "So lost in their envy that they kill Him." (Matthew 27:18) "Gospel's simple." (2 Corinthians 11:3-4) "Must believe Christ is risen." (Romans 10:9) Jesus rose from the dead and later ascended up to heaven, where He will be until... "He'll come back and make us fly." This is what is commonly referred to as the rapture, a time when all born-again Christians will be caught up to the sky with Jesus (1 Thessalonians 4) right before the rest of the world goes through the 7 year period called the Great Tribulation. "Maybe Christianity isn't as crazy as you think." Lost people cannot understand spiritual things (1 Corinthians 2:14), so real Christians appear crazy to them (Acts 26:24). (1 Corinthians 1:18 "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.") "when the scourge pour ya" The scourges they used on Jesus had sharps things attached to the cords to shred the flesh, and hence, spilled so much blood that Jesus was like a bucket of blood being "poured" out. "Go outside, pick up the tracts off the sidewalk." A gospel tract is a small paper booklet that tells you how to avoid hell, usually with quoted scripture. Sidewalks often are littered with tracts discarded by those who don't want them after being handed one. "My own sins are my fault." As opposed to your sins which are your fault. The singer is saying 'Don't dodge the issue by changing the subject to me.' Many lost people, when confronted about their need to be saved, will complain about the hypocrisy of Christians and point out the soulwinner's relatively minor flaws or sins while ignoring their own greater sin - the sin of refusing to accept Jesus Christ, hence "Beam in your own eyeball", a reference to Matthew 7:3, a reference which turns the tables on the lost person's misuse of Matthew 7:1 ("Judge not...") out of context to say that the soulwinner can't tell the lost person he's lost! Hence, the frustrated soulwinner also bites back with "Next time you're judged you'll be a smudge on the Bride's wall!" a reference to the blood of the heathen staining the horses of the saints (Revelation 19:7-8,11-16 with 14:19-20), who make up the "bride of Christ", which is likened to a "house" with walls made of "lively stones" (1 Peter 2:5). "Heathen, Don't forget when Jesus lands again He will stomp you til you're dead" After the Great Tribulation, the Lord Jesus returns on a white horse to tread "the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God" (Revelation 14:19-20 with 19:15) with the saints following on their own horses (Revelation 19:14). "and set the world on fire." (Revelation 20:6-10, Psalms 97:3, 2 Peter 3:10) The singer says "Heathen, Don't forget" these things to bring to mind the nature of God as a righteous Judge, because deceived sinners like to think that since "God is love" He wouldn't let anyone go to hell. He should and He will. "Just gonna stand there and let men burn?" You can indirectly prevent people from going to hell by telling people the gospel so they will ask Jesus to save them (1 Corinthians 4:15). "Christ wants them all to turn." Jesus doesn't want anyone to go to hell, but to turn to Him for salvation. (2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord is...not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.") "Preach it loud that they can live because He died." (Romans 10:13-15) Click here to learn more
