A Thousand Lives Later

from BARDS: Of The Morning Star by BARDS

  • Mystic Tape Deck successfully funded production of this 50 Page illustrated full color book and companion 16 song CD via Kickstarter in 2019:

    www.kickstarter.com/projects/mystictapedeck/mystic-tape-decks-magical-musical-mythology

    The book is a collection of reprints of several recruitment pamphlets issued by an underground musical/spiritual cult known as the "Cloak Of Nazili" in the early 1970's - complete lyrics with full color plates of original artwork by PS Perkins.

    This edition serves as the minerval guide to the Cloak, a mere introduction to the the world of and beyond the confines of one of the world's most underground, elusive and bizarre hermetic cults. A basic cosmogony and foundation of the surface mythology is cryptically laid out for eager believers and bold adventurers alike. A fusion of reality and fantasy, a "megafictional" blend of myth and fact that at once seeks to explain not only our current place and predicament as a species, but how we got here, and where we might be headed.

    What secrets will the next installment hold?
    What new strange and esoteric truths are waiting to be revealed?

about

In a state of illumination, the Shining One reflects upon his past
with a mixture of pride and regret.

lyrics

I crawled in the mud and I screamed at the sky
I learned how to fall and I learned how to fly
I have loved, and I’ve lost, confirmed and contrived
And I have lived a thousand lives

I’ve whispered temptation into archbishop’s ears
As I wiped all the blood from the tips of their spears
Damned all the souls who were bled by their knives
And I have lived a million lives

I’ve sewn poison apples and eaten them all
And rung aged bells hung in old ancient halls
I am dark and I shine, with no reason or rhyme
And I have died a thousand times

Exacted my will and my ways on the world
Been crushed by the weight of the stones which I hurled
Death brings no end to the course of my crimes
And I have died a million times

Across sunny glades there’s a clear bell that rings
As I add yet another bead to my string
I shall welcome the end if it ever arrives
As I have lived a thousand lives
