lyrics

No stony tower, nor walls of beaten brass
That cuts off Twenty years of life
So well as by reflection, I, your glass
When the cross blue lightning comes
Unto some monstrous state
You and I have heard our fathers say
Know you how much the people may be moved?

You wrong me every way; you wrong me, Brutus
(show of love as I was wont to have)
The fault is in ourselves, that we are underlings
Weary of these worldly bars,
(show of love as I was wont to have)
The fault dear Brutus is not in our stars

How he did shake: 'tis true, this god did shake;
This tongue had not offended so to-day,
And where I did begin, there shall I end;
And that same eye bend the world
All writings to the great
You and I have heard our fathers say
I have much mistook your passion

You wrong me every way; you wrong me, Brutus
(show of love as I was wont to have)
The fault is in ourselves, that we are underlings
Weary of these worldly bars,
(show of love as I was wont to have)
The fault dear Brutus is not in our stars

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.
