This man in my presence, who stands at my entrance/
Accompanied by the Jews, demanding a sentence/
Asking me to judge is odd/
They have their own law, but they want him dead, cause he said he was the son of
God/
Should I pay homage, he looks harmless/
Even minus the carnage and bondage of convicts/
I'm confused, caught up in this conflict/
That some Jews want this man dead is a mind trick/
If he speaks, it could set up his release/
He'd be deceased if left to the chief priests/
Salivating with accusations and allegations/
How they're saying he's straying and swaying all the Galileans/
Technicality, formality, of legality/
For conviction, no jurisdiction in Galilee/
I now pause, without cause, left like south paws/
To send them to Herod as my out clause/

-The mystique and the mystery, he speaks so convincingly/
It leaves me shaking like a tremor/
'Cause if he is, who I think he is/
Make no mistake, I'm facing a dilemma/
I'm faced with a dilemma/
Facing a dilemma/
I'm faced with a dilemma/
This is my dilemma, this is my dilemma/-

The turned away, is back like vertebrae/
I can extend some help, he won't even defend himself/
What's with this man before me/
When faced with remarks inflammatory, defending yourself should be mandatory/
Another cause for concern/
It seems my wife had a dream, she tossed and she turned/
About this man that's righteous, unplanned crisis, the chief priests carried in/
steer clear of him, cut it out like a C-sarian/
Is he the king that would reign with supremacy/
I could set him free courtesy of clemency/
Don't treat me like I'm some dumb novice/
That can't tell unjust barters, for martyrs, with trumped up charges/
Regardless, whatever they claim, cleverly maintain/
Steadily takes aim at this target hardest/
This cat could feel the wrath/
Now I'm curious, about to catch a case of curiosity killed the cat/

-The mystique and the mystery, he speaks so convincingly/
It leaves me shaking like a tremor/
'Cause if he is, who I think he is/
Make no mistake, I'm facing a dilemma/
I'm faced with a dilemma/
Facing a dilemma/
I'm faced with a dilemma/
This is my dilemma, this is my dilemma/-

Should I absolve him/
Are you the king of the Jews, he said that's what I have called him/
To speak in absolutes there is much dispute/
He said he's here to testify of the truth, what is truth/
I'm an overlord/
But he's talking to me like he's laying his life down of his own accord/
Saying I can in no way condemn/
Unless its given from heaven, and he who turned me over has the greater sin/
His servants would've swarmed his opponents/
I guess that's sort of an omen, if,
Indeed he's a king that was born for this moment/
He wasn't knocked off his helm, and he's not overwhelmed/
He said his kingdom is not of this realm/
It's not my plan, to squash this man/
Consider the significance, if innocent, now in ignorance I will then wash my
hands/
Maybe I can bring them to choose/
The madman Barabbas or this king of the Jews/

-The mystique and the mystery, he speaks so convincingly/
It leaves me shaking like a tremor/
'Cause if he is, who I think he is/
Make no mistake, I'm facing a dilemma/
I'm faced with a dilemma/
Facing a dilemma/
I'm faced with a dilemma/
This is my dilemma, this is my dilemma/-
