Shilo's Ancient Work...


Rafael Davis: American Artist 1986-2014      Letter to Rafe:   Fine, we’ve much to do  & we’ll carry you from California blue  we’re evergreen all for you  scatter on these paths so true    (you) wide alive  riding down the sky  on an undersized motorbike  mirrored eyes  but you’d never hide  you’d just never hide    & it got dark back there  but that don’t make you disappear  you made quite a mark back there  that’s just how you reappear  & it’s fine…    Fine, your soul is freed  some day we’ll each take your lead  such a rare, rare breed  you got a lot of what these other folks need  & I’m off to Manhattan  with your guitar and a black pen  while some will seek quiet lands  some will speak with mountains    (chorus)    when I heard your song on the radio  it was jubilant like a rodeo  with a taste of the real, real snow  we were far from where the cold winds blow  So host our Justice!  Torch some lies for the rest of ‘em  And if you can hear this  We’ll meet you right here in the midst of it…

Letter to Rafe:

Fine, we’ve much to do

& we’ll carry you from California blue

we’re evergreen all for you

scatter on these paths so true

(you) wide alive

riding down the sky

on an undersized motorbike

mirrored eyes

but you’d never hide

you’d just never hide

& it got dark back there

but that don’t make you disappear

you made quite a mark back there

that’s just how you reappear

& it’s fine…

Fine, your soul is freed

some day we’ll each take your lead

such a rare, rare breed

you got a lot of what these other folks need

& I’m off to Manhattan

with your guitar and a black pen

while some will seek quiet lands

some will speak with mountains

(chorus)

when I heard your song on the radio

it was jubilant like a rodeo

with a taste of the real, real snow

we were far from where the cold winds blow

So host our Justice!

Torch some lies for the rest of ‘em

And if you can hear this

We’ll meet you right here in the midst of it…
