Lyrics
What are you gonna say,
Upon my happy landing,
What are you gonna do,
Without true to understanding,

My love's for everyone,
There is no pick and choosing,
I come from up above,
Beyond this trap your using,

Refrain:

Pharisee,
What are you gonna say,
Pharisee,
What are you gonna do,
Pharisee,
I'm goin' all the way,
Pharisee,
I'm bearing down on you,
-

I warned you fear and hate,
Would lead to hell and drag you down,
Now as I celebrate,
You're gonna hiss and spit and frown,

Now all around the world,
I'll spread my love you took away,
The wise serpent and the dove,
Is gonna laugh and dance and play,

Refrain:

-

Spoken:

Here's the problem, Pharisee,
I taught the people to love and forgive one another,
You brought murder, torture and hatred in my name,

Now your gonna learn what hell is, Pharisee,
It's the Messiah unwilling to play your game,
It's your condemnation turned inward, Pharisee,
My forgiveness is going to blow your mind,

Hiss and spit all you want, Pharisee,
This world is mine until the end of time,

Refrain:
