Through Dust, Through Rain

Therion

Through Dust, Through Rain Lyrics

[SOPHIA]
Dear child of mine, pain turns to destiny...
Down from the mountains, in the form of a rose
The thunder of oceans shall bring forth the ghost
Of an infinite star that will rest in my tree
Like the full moon of night
Descending like me
Such is my journey
No matter where my spirit shall travel
You will be there...

[HELENA]
Winter sheds its grief in snow
Summer weeps
It must be so
Thus let thee live
Unseen, unknown
Light is the body and no more than a shell
Releasing our spirits to heaven or hell
While embracing my love to let go of your hand
And to reach for a kingdom forgotten by man
Forgive my sister, she would not come
This travel, she said, you must do alone...

[SOPHIA]
Bring to heart Johanna's name
Through my blood you share the same
To hold, to keep through dust, through rain

[HELENA]
Say you knew
Yes only you could grow the seeds of time
Run and flow through silver snow
Of mountains spring must climb
From this hill, to waters still
My heart will guide your way
Love and wrath, my epitaph
Before your name I lay

About “Through Dust, Through Rain”

Chapter 2. Scene 1.
In this scene, Sophia lies dying in her bed, with her daughter, Helena, by her side. Helena expresses sorrow at Sophia’s dying, but Sophia expresses serenity and grace in the face of the inevitable. Sophia also thanks Helena for being with her and the two discuss Sophia’s magical work (which they say enriches the human spirit).

The two also introduce Johanna, Helena’s sister, by name, describing her refusal to support Sophia’s magical work and from this her resulting refusal to accompany Helena to see their mother one last time. Sophia, as her last wish, begs Helena to bring Johanna into what they both view as true understanding of the spirit.
