Not-So-Good Friday

Pilate’s Dream

I dreamed I met a Galilean
A most amazing man
He had that look you very rarely find
The haunting hunted kind.

I asked him
To say what had happened
How it all began
I asked again
He never said a word
As if he hadn’t heard . . .

And next the room was full
Of wild and angry men
They seemed to hate this man
They fell on him and then . . . disappeared again

Then I saw thousands of millions
Crying for this man
And then I heard them mentioning my name—
and leaving me the blame.

JCSS overload

Pilate’s Dream

Lyrics: Tim Rice
Voice: Barry Dennen, original cast JCS 1970

I dreamed I met a Galilean
A most amazing man
He had that look you very rarely find
The haunting hunted kind.

I asked him
To say what had happened
How it all began
I asked again
He never said a word
As if he hadn’t heard…

And next the room was full
Of wild and angry men
They seemed to hate this man
They fell on him and then – disappeared again

Then I saw thousands of millions
Crying for this man
And then I heard them mentioning my name –
and leaving me the blame…
