Silenced by death in the grave
William Butler Yeats couldn't save
Why did you stand here
Were you sickened in time?
But I know by now
Why did you sit here, ah...

In the grave, in the gra-a-ave
In the grave, in the gra-a-a-ave?

Why should I blame her
That she filled my days with misery
Or that she would of late have taught
To ignorant men most violent
Ways or hurled the little streets upon the great
Had they but courage equal to desire

Sad that Maud Gonne couldn't stay
Da da da da, but she had Mac Bride anyway
And you sit here with me on the Isle Inisfree
And you're writting down ev'rything
But I know by now
Why did you sit here, ah...

In the grave, in the gra-a-ave
In the grave, in the gra-a-a-ave?

William Butler...
William Butler...
William Butler...
William Butler...

Why should I blame her
Had they the courage equal to desire
William Butler...
William Butler...
William Butler...
