lyrics

Long time ago in the silver city
Ruled a king at the core of the world
The man well-known for his versatility
Was only afraid of the Reaper's sword
He asked his way to the oracle
« Your fate is a coin that soon will be tossed,
Your grandson's eyes in a year will sparkle,
And his hand throw you beneath the moss »
His pure daughter, was immediately locked
In a big tower, to prevent her from love
But the lightning god, in no way can be blocked
As a raining gold, to attain her he strove

How come there's such a beauty in here
I dove from the sky your senses to stir
I'm the rain shining through your veins
In your cave I'll be gold leave me reins
Let my shower infiltrate your skin
On my shoulder give me a broad grin

« And, then, the baby was born
I raised him, in the silent tower
But, now, I'll have to face the consequences
My father heard my son, screaming out loud
His wrath was like never before but his fear
Eating him even more
So, in a grievous, livid, hateful oath
He doomed me, his one and only daughter
Heir of his legacy, heart of the city, his flesh and his blood
To be thrown in the dreadful storm of the ocean
Me and my son in a box made of sheer wood
At the mercy of the streams and of a sure death
Ah please, help me, Zeus help me, help me, help me ! »

The waves are beginning to be smoothed out
I can see the light through the box holes
Here the voice of the earth forward
Smell the grace of our saviour now

Long time ago, far from the silver city
A fisherman kept the Reaper at bay for us
My son will grow, thanks his net abilities
The golden rain won't be in vain
