Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

WHO WILL SIT WITH JESUS?

Jesus Christ in heaven
Sometimes he gets real low
But then he turns on his television
And he feels the magic glow

He watches all the people
Who support the killing ways
He shakes his head and wonders
Some debts are never paid

Jesus Christ in heaven
Has been told he shouldn't roam
He shouldn't get too upset
He should just stay close to home
And he cries at night, alone

(chorus)
Who will sit with Jesus
And make him understand
That killing must be defended
The Empire is at hand
Who will sit with Jesus
And look out upon the land
Who will taste the tears of Jesus
Who will take him in their hands?

When the older gods
Were buried in the sun
They slept in golden caskets
Made by the new god's son

Jesus Christ in the doorway
Standing there in silhouette
Jesus Christ, surrender
In the darkness, circumspect

Now Jesus Christ is bleeding
In every wound of hate
He must bleed and bleed forever
It is his godly fate
And he cries at night, alone

(chorus)
Who will sit with Jesus
And make him understand
That killing must be defended
The Empire is at hand
Who will sit with Jesus
And look out upon the land
Who will taste the tears of Jesus
Who will take him in their hands?

Be born again, dear Jesus
We need you here and now
Be born again, dear Jesus
You know the secrets how

Come to us in visions
Come to us and say
We are the chosen people
We know the one, true way

Jesus, why so silent?
Jesus, help us win
And when it's all over
Wash away our sin
And he cries at night, alone

(chorus)
Who will sit with Jesus
And make him understand
That killing must be defended
The Empire is at hand
Who will sit with Jesus
And hold his Jesus hands
Who will taste the tears of Jesus
Who will take him in their hands?

This is too good to not be sung. Anyone have a tune/tab that this could be sung to?
