NOTE: This song became Sefronia - After Asklepiades After Kafka
the first movement of Sefronia on the self-titled 1973 release

(The Dream Belongs To Me

Sefronia shook the black cat bone at me
And I was only wax in the spell of fire
Oh my coal black nigger

When black coal burns
It ripens into a rose

She pried the whip out of her master's hand
And lashed at her own skin
So she'd be master

How could she know
This was just a dream
Born of a new knot in the bullwhip
