Tom Morello: una poesia per Chris Cornell

Fra i vari tributi a Chris Cornell che nelle ultime ore stanno spuntando in rete, uno dei più commoventi è quello di Tom Morello, che ha voluto dedicare all’amico e collega negli Audioslave (con cui hanno pubblicato tre album: “Audioslave” del 2002, “Out Of Exile” del 2005 e “Revelations” del 2006) una toccante poesia. Morello l’ha accompagnata ad una foto che li ritrae insieme a Tim Commerford e Brad Wilk, gli altri due reduci dei Rage Against The Machine confluiti negli Audioslave insieme a Cornell.

You’re a prince, you’re a snare, you’re a shadow
You’re twilight and star burn and shade
You’re a sage, you’re a wound shared, you’re masked
You’re a pillar of smoke, you’re a platinum heart
You’re a brush fire, you’re caged, you’re free
Your vision pierces, you do not see
You are pieces strewn on the hillside
You’re open armed, you’re armed, you’re true
You’re a revealer of visions, you’re the passenger, you’re a never fading scar
You’re twilight and star burn and shade
You’re the secret veiled, you’re the secret revealed, you’re surrounded no more
You’re not there, now you’re always here
Youre a handsome groom, a loving father, a haunted stairwell
You’re the clear bell ringing, the mountains echo your song
Maybe no one has ever known you
You are twilight and star burn and shade
