lyrics

How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
Why do you start at Things so fair
I would not sleep
So give us a light there, give us a light
I would not sleep

So withered and so wild
Upon her skinny lips their speeches shine
Yet you speak lies, you speak lies

Like lead upon me
Lead upon the air
She goes down at twelve
Allegiance clear

How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
Why do you start at Things so fair
I would not sleep
So give us a light there, give us a light
I would not sleep

Restrain in me
The cursed thought
That nature goes with grace
and great prediction

Darkness tell us truths
But their candles are all out
This bloody piece of work
their candles are all out

How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
Why do you start at Things so fair
I would not sleep
So give us a light there, give us a light
I would not sleep

So withered and so wild
Upon her skinny lips their speeches shine
Yet you speak lies, you speak lies

How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
Why do you start at things so fair
I would not sleep

How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
How goes the night, boy?
I would not sleep
Why do you start at things so fair
I would not sleep
So give us a light there
give us a light there
give us a light there

about

The William Shakes

The William Shakes is as much a concept project as it is a band. Written, produced, and fronted by Mark McGettrick, The William Shakes decontextualizes Shakespearean prose to the tune of alternative indie pop.
