I Want To Live

  • 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

Unable to die with any finality, The Shining One searches for
redemption, ultimately deciding that life is more important than death.

lyrics

I want to live to see a face that isn’t there
I want to live, I roll over and you’re not there
I’m only standing on the shore,
I’ve had some friends but I want more
I’ve seen the future and it’s all mine,
Want to be perfect I’m taking my time
I’ll try not to act like I’m so far away,
Try to be right in whatever I say
Deeper feelings recurring
Again and again and again and again
A complex spiral that leads me to spin

But I want to live to feel the earth turn one more time
And I want to live to feel a face that isn’t mine
I’m only standing on the shore,
I’ve had some fun but I want more
I’ll try not to act like I’m so far away,
Try to be right in whatever I say
Deeper feelings recurring
Again and again and again and again
A complex spiral which leads me to spin
