I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine
I dreamed I saw St. Augustine
Alive as you or me
Tearing through these quarters in
The utmost misery

With a blanket underneath his arm
And a coat of solid gold
Searching for the very souls
Whom already have been sold

"Arise, arise," he cried so loud
With a voice without restraint
"Come out, ye gifted kings and queens
And hear my sad complaint

No martyr is among ye now
Whom you can call your own
But go on your way accordingly
But know you're not alone"

I dreamed I saw St. Augustine
Alive with fiery breath
And I dreamed I was amongst the ones
That put him out to death

Oh, I awoke in anger
So alone and terrified
I put my fingers against the glass
And bowed my head and cried
