Bleeding Protons

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:

    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?

Long after the extinction of human life, a legion of mechanical robots
banish one of their kind for flesh worship, just as the seeds of life are
delivered and once again sewn by the Shining One’s companions.


Waiting for some kind of sign,
Some evidence of the divine

They mustn’t grow flesh so they sent it away
And deep in the desert they said it must stay
It sits growing larger and larger each day
It’s now grown so large that it can’t get away

Nerves grow so slowly - must grow them faster

The sparkling space dewdrop which fell from the sky
Was tracked on its course by the robotic eye
They came bearing gifts which so many had sought
But the price in the end wasn’t quite what they thought

To be human, making humans
Making humans to be human
