I Am The Light

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?


    Includes unlimited streaming of BARDS: Of The Morning Star via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

The Shining One experiences his first illumination event and sees that he is connected to, and part of all things.


I am the light, I am the glory,
I am the writer and I am the story
I am the fire, and I am the tinder,
I am the tree and I am the splinter
I am the alpha, wiggling in mud slimes,
I’m the omega, I am the end times
I am the light – It’s high time I shine

I am the joiner and I am the splitter,
I am the diamond, I am the glitter
I am the finger and I am the trigger,
I am the smaller and I am the bigger
I am the meek and I have the power,
I am the raincloud and I am the shower
I am the light – It’s high time I shine

I am the wind and I am the blower,
I am the knowing and I am the knower
I am the willing and I am the able,
I am the diners and I am the table
I am the eyes by which you can see me,
I am the key with which you can free me
I am the light – It’s high time I shine

I am the ocean, I am the beaches,
I am the fever, I am the leeches
I am the seed and I am the flower,
I am the dungeon and I am the tower
I am the true love which is never ending,
I am the space time through which we are bending
and I am the light – It’s my time to shine

I am the bell that’s ringing
I am the song that’s singing
I am the bee that’s stinging
And I am the light
It’s my time to shine
It’s high time I shine
