Upon This Rock : Take U Back

The Bardic Tradition of Magick

There are three orders against whom no weapon can be bared—
  • the herald, 
  • the bard, 
  • the head of a clan.
There are three sons of captives who free themselves,—
  • a bard, 
  • a scholar, 
  • a mechanic.

There are three orders who are exempt from bearing arms,—
  • the bard
  • the judge,
  • the graduate in law or religion.

“Now, as I understand it, the bards were feared. They were respected, but more than that they were feared. If you were just some magician, if you'd pissed off some witch, then what's she gonna do, she's gonna put a curse on you, and what's gonna happen? Your hens are gonna lay funny, your milk's gonna go sour, maybe one of your kids is gonna get a hare-lip or something like that — no big deal. 

You piss off a bard, and forget about putting a curse on you, he might put a satire on you. And if he was a skilful bard, he puts a satire on you, it destroys you in the eyes of your community, it shows you up as ridiculous,lamepatheticworthless, in the eyes of your community, in the eyes of your family, in the eyes of your children, in the eyes of yourself, and if it's a particularly good bard, and he's written a particularly good satire, then three hundred years after you're dead, people are still gonna be laughing, at what a twat you were.”

― Alan Moore

Take U Back,
Do Do Do Do

Well, I been told by, 
some people and they all,
say to take U back, 
take you back like a bore. 

I don't call that a reason, 

I just call it believin' in my self.
Do Do Do Do
Even in my self.
Do Do Do Do
I don't call that a reason, 

I just call it believin' in my self.
Do Do Do Do
Even in myself, 
Do Do Do Do
in my self.....
