lyrics

Baser stars do shut us up
In wishes first, must give me trust
The dearest issue dearly love
Of valour fear and wealth above

To join and kiss like native things
The fortune space in nature brings
Wisdom waiting for the flood
When roar'd the lion royal blood

O you leaden messengers

From simple sources seas have dried
My motive sound the search implies
Ever true a flame to be
With sharp occasions take my leave

But my intents are fix'd on you
With true observance love is true
And with the word the time will bring
On summer blessing virtue sings

O you leaden messengers

Baser stars do shut us up
In wishes first, must give me trust
The dearest issue dearly love
Of valour fear and wealth above

O you leaden messengers

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.
