"Like Callisto to a Star in Heaven" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
Like Callisto To A Star In Heaven
Taken forcefully
A thing which never can be
Erased by time
Since he made you bleed, so violently

Painful is the kick
Inside it makes you so sick
The blood that drips down your thigh
Tarnishes virtue; lies

Wearing a mask familiar
A god forced himself on you
Raping and impregnating
Causing the exile of your life

Changed like Callisto to a star in heaven

[Chorus]
Hate not the flesh that makes me
But seek what lies beneath
My flesh and blood will make the stars
That shake bones underneath

Now a forsaken
Ghost in the eyes of her world
Banished for all time
Since he made you bleed, so violently

Painful is the kick
Inside it makes you so sick
The blood that drips down your thigh
Tarnishes virtue; lies

Wearing a mask familiar
A god forced himself on you
Raping and impregnating

Causing the exile of your life

Changed like Callisto to a star in heaven

[Chorus]

Cast out from the righteous life you loved
Vengeance comes down from the skies above
To wreak havoc and torment the one
Who just gave birth to her true love's son

Cursed to roam the Earth alone, a beast
Witnesses as her son now fully grown
Readied arm to cast a spear, to kill
Can't recognize, all he sees is fear

Wearing a mask familiar
A god forced himself on you
Raping and impregnating
Causing the exile of your life

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis is about the nymph Callisto, a numyph to Artemis, who was never to lose her virginity too stay beautiful, Zeus was obviously attracted to her and digised himself as Artimes 'wearing a mask familiar' in order to get close to her and raped her 'A god forced himself on you, Raping and impregnating'
    , she was then 'cursed to roam the earth a beast' as she changed into a bear 'Causing the exile of your life', she gave birth to a son, Arcas, who perhaps nearly killed his own mother not recognizing her, 'Readied arm to cast a spear, to kill, Can't recognize, all he sees is fear'
    'all he sees is fear' is him seeing his mothers fear. Zeus then placed them in the sky as a constelation, 'Change Like Calisto, To A Star In Hevean'

    General CommentI just want to know how you even managed to get the lyrics for this song, and what seem to be pretty correct ones at that. I can't even understand what he's saying during the chorus!

    If these turn out to be the right lyrics, props to you!!

    PS - This album is f'n fantastic! Can't wait to see Trivium live on Oct 9th!!
