Silenced by death in a 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?

In the grave
In a grave
In the grave
In a grave

"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
She had MacBride anyway
And you sit here with me
On the isle Innisfree
And you're writin' down anything
But I know by now
Why did you sit here?

In the grave
In a grave
In the grave
In a grave

"Why should I blame her
Had they but courage equal to desire?
Had they but courage equal to desire?"
