Sage Francis // Crack Pipes

Keep free of negative thoughts, everything’ll be fine
We all assume… That it would go back to the way things were
That it would go back to normal soon
Saw the moon in a way that I never seen it before
When I looked up that night into the sky wondering why
Lookin’ for answers, guess I ain’t ask right
I’m guessin’ most of y’all out there know exactly what that’s like
What that’s like, now tell me what’s that like?

Jervis McEntee - The Danger Signal 

Jervis McEntee (July 14, 1828 – January 27, 1891) was an American painter of the Hudson River School. He is a somewhat lesser-known figure of the 19th-century American art world, but was the close friend and traveling companion of several of the important Hudson River School artists. Aside from his paintings, McEntee’s journals are an enduring legacy, documenting the life of a New York painter during and after the Gilded Age.
