Keep in mind what I originally posted from Austin. Emphasis mine:I asked Austin about it, back at the end of February. Here's what he said:The text from the aria comes from a variety of global "hero's journeys," either from history or mythology. Joan of Arc, the Aenied, Beowolf, etc ... all in original languages.
The text was assembled in collaboration with a fellow composer who's somewhat of a literary guru. Ultimately the push/pull of matching text with music entailed making changes to the music and to tweaking the text.
Yes, it may be a mistake. It may also be a deliberate change. We won't know until we hear from Austin.
I saw this quote on gamefaqs and actually thought everyone knew this.
