Liesure of Lions - Inspired by the art of Tatiana Lopez

from by Shayfer James



Tatiana Lopez:

"March of Crows" is an interdisciplinary collaborative project devised by singer-songwriter Shayfer James. The first "March Of Crows" is collaboration between Shayfer, 16 visual artists, 3 Poets, a director, a Choreographer a lighting designer, and videographer. All based out of Jersey City.

The process begins with visual art. Shayfer has written 16 songs using the work of local artists as prompt. The task was to not only communicate the art through words, but also by incorporating different styles and textures to capture the life of the work.


I’ve severed my hand for a thorn
I’ve pleaded for love at the leisure of lions
I don’t feel alone any more
There’s a ghost at the door
It will leave me in time

I’m not wise
In the ways the like
I’ll find my way
I’ll find my way
I’m not fine
In the way that I was
I’ll find my way
I’ll find my way

I’ve come to this crossroads before
I’ve witnessed the difference
in ravens and crows
I don’t feel afraid any more
There’s a ghost at the door
I’ll be glad when it goes
