An Irish Airman foresees his Death (by W B Yeats)

Watch the video for Keane- A Bad Dream - here

I know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate
Those that I guard I do not love;
My country is Kiltartan cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan's poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public man, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;
I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.

A Bad Dream is inspired by the WB Yeats poem `An Irish Airman foresees his Death'. It is written through the eyes of a soldier, and questions his conscience as a human being.

Written by one of the country's most respected song writers and lyricists of this century, and sung by arguably the greatest voice of his generation, Keane release one of the most acclaimed tracks from their Number One second album, `Under The Iron Sea'.

Keane have recently completed their captivating UK and European sold-out tour, where `A Bad Dream' stood out as one of the live highlights of the show.

This year the trio have firmly established themselves as one of Britain's most treasured bands and have achieved International success not seen from a UK act in many years.
