Context & Lyrics

Pontius Pilate retells a dream in which he will be entirely blamed for Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.

View Lyrics

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
They 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.
