At the beginning of the song there's a passage in Portuguese:
"Esteja alerta para as regras dos 3
O que você dá, retornará para você
Essa lição você tem que aprender
Você só ganha o que você merece"
Translated to English:
"Beware of the rule of 3
What you give, will get back at you
This lesson you must learn
You only get what you deserve"
Note that this is the first song on Portishead's THIRD album.
The spoken passage is a sample of Claudio Campos, a Capoeira master, reciting an adaptation of the Wiccan precept of the Threefold Law
. When the song was debuted at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Minehead, England in December 2007 it was titled "Wicca."
