Clutch - Oh, Isabella Lyrics




Ratted out in hades
Forced to return
To rockville
With nothing but a rucksack
Hard lesson learned

Foul council of leeches
Want silence and bedlam
Take refuge
And a dagger to the bites
Then suck out the venom

Oh Isabella
Your ship's run aground
Kneel at the sword
Scream at the clouds
Oh Isabella
There's smoke on the wind
Jaguar and fever
Have taken your men

Running on the tightrobe
Woven by spider
While the canyon
Teeming with shoppers
Grows wider and wider
What demons possessing
The clock and the compass?
Surrender
Run headlong to the void
The reptile's among us!

Oh Isabella
Your ship's run aground
Kneel at the sword
Scream at the clouds
Oh Isabella
There's smoke on the wind
Jaguar and fever
Have taken your men

Chained to the oxcart
With a chest full of arrows
The villagers
Are burdened with cedar
By back and by barrow

Scrub brush from the wasteland
Snake in a tree
Remember
When they throw the torches in
Breathe, breathe, breathe

Oh Isabella
Your ship's run aground
Kneel at the sword
Scream at the clouds
Oh Isabella
There's smoke on the wind
Jaguar and fever
Have taken your men

Oh Isabella
Your ship's run aground
Kneel at the sword
Scream at the clouds
Oh Isabella
There's smoke on the wind
Jaguar and fever
Have taken your men

  11. Richard Gonzales

    An epic Song that easily gives " The Rhyme of The Ancient Mariner " a run for its cargo.!!!

    Anonymous S

    That's exactly what I was thinking about when I heard this song

    Richard Gonzales Gonzales

    Sarahi Sarabia :It’s because Neil and His Courageous Shipmates accomplished something as timeless ,in half the time ; but without losing any of the swashbuckling sense of adventure and the tragic sort of longing that both songs so deeply inspire

  12. Michael Rollo

    so fuckin poetic.Queen Isabella would be honored.Neil  Fallon for prez!

    Here's the lyrics, since I couldn't find any vids with them added.

    Ratted out in hades
    Forced to return
    To Rockville
    With nothing but a rucksack
    Hard lesson learned
    Foul council of leeches
    Want silence and bet 'em
    Take rebute
    And a dagger to the bites
    Then suck out the venom
    Oh Isabella
    Your ship's run aground
    Kneel at the sword
    Scream at the clouds
    Oh Isabella
    There's smoke on the wind
    Jaguar in fever
    Have taken your men
    Running on the tightrope
    Woven by spider
    While the canyon
    Teeming with shoppers
    Grows wider and wider
    What demon's possessing
    The clock and the compass
    Surrender
    Run headlong to the void
    The reptile's among us
    Oh Isabella
    Your ship's run aground
    Kneel at the sword
    Scream at the clouds
    Oh Isabella

    Have taken your men
    Chained to the ox cart
    With a chest full of arrows
    The villages
    Are burning with cedar
    By bag and by barrow
    Scrub brush from the wasteland

    Running on the tight rope woven by spider, when the canyon teaming with sappers grows wider and wider? What demons possessing the clock and the compass surrender, run head long to the void the reptiles among us. bunununa bununa na na !!!

    Mrcabe

    yuhh babe give suck

    Michael Rollo

    you must be beautiful

    Richard Gonzales

    I actually wrote a song for My Band :Sick Rick and The Terminal Terror , called : "Isabella :Beyond The Bells of Midnight " that prophesied Your coming ... and if lacks The power or The artistic aim of CLUTCH's Mighty ode to one so named ... it is simply because I haven't yet added the finishing touch that comes from knowing the prophecy has already come to pass into the world : Pure Lightning , in The Shape of a Woman!!!

    Rômulo Medina

    Don't forget the classic brazillian folk music called "Isabela" from Bonde do Maluco!

  20. ian russell

    these guys deserve to be more well known

    J C

    ian russell True fans of rock know Clutch.

    bob bobo

    True, but its like a private club of those who know. How they didnt get more widely known in the mainstream is hard to say. I think the lack of selling out has something to do with it lol.

    George Montgomery

    yeah, agreed, signed to countless record labels, till they made their own; Weathermaker. Their music is varied & progressive but they never, ever sold out. All albums differ, but they have to differ. Seen 'em in Belfast & they didn't dissapoint. Love these guys & if you don't know 'em...you're loss!

    Katrina Pennington

    @George Montgomery I seen them at Earth Rocker 2 last year, in West VA. USA. It was an awesome show, my first for them. And it was sooo fucking hot. Well worth it though.

    John Rairigh

    ian russell I completely agree, it’s 2019 and they still don’t have a lot of views

  21. Harrison Jones

    neil is my husbando

    Shaun

    notafraidoffuture

    Your void has been filled with your own excrement.  ORDINARY

    OpalAuge

    Paul Kruger

    +Cerberus LOVE.

    i like pie

    +Cerberus i agree

  29. bob bobo

    One of my favorite Clutch songs off the new album. I read an interview with Neil saying his inspiration for this song was time traveling explorers searching for the fountain of youth and he imagined if he was one of them as he drove down the turnpike to rockville maryland. Isabella is of course Queen Isabella and her love struck explorer Columbus sort of cursing the sky as his expedition falls apart. It quite genius.

    Albert Wesker

    @monsterbap Great Hugh Jackman movie ! 

    Richard Gonzales

    The Concept and The progression ; the nods towards a Thin Lizzy and Maiden that Sult unashamedly but not shamelessly , adds on with a firm hand ... it pits CLUTCH , Our own Explorers of time and space , against all of The Prog Rock bands and their over celebrated concept albums ... this song carries the others :?One bullet after Elephant slug after another into the eye -Mouth of The void ... The abyss shrieking because it recognizes them for Who and What They are : The Four Horse Men -Gun Slingers galloping Hell Bent for The Tower at The end of The Apocalypse .

  30. vcm2

    If this doesn't make the hairs on on the back of your neck stand up, and you head start banging, I don't know what to tell you. Go back to the factory, your soul is missing....

  31. ReinerShelton

    you must prove yourself to be worthy, and pray to Neil's beard for forgiveness

  32. immortalclutch4

    This....just this.....wins the internet

  33. UncleJersey409

    Saw them live in Houston a few months ago. Fucking awesome. Underrated if you ask me

    Daniel Rice

    UncleJersey409 underrated is a fucking understatement!! they're straight up AMAZING !!!!!

  34. Dodo Burger

    Chuck Norris is powerless against Clutch Norris!

  35. BloodyRockGOD14

    not a badass guitar player, but figured out how to play it)

  36. BloodyRockGOD14

    not a badass guitar player, but figured out how to play it)

    Spike 70

    BloodyRockGOD14 not a bad ass guitar player? Sorry bro but he is a fucking badass.......

  37. METLEDSABBATHICA UDO

    I CANT STOP WITH THE CLUTCH :)

  38. Isaiah

    Chuck Norris shaved his beard because it was intimidated by Neils Beard.

    Michael Rollo

    chuck Norris was made from just one of neil's beard hairs

  39. A Ham

    I stopped listening to Clutch for a couple years, then I heard this album out of fucking nowhere and it blew my socks off. Neal, will you please forgive me for, albeit briefly, straying form the gospel of the almighty beard?

  40. rezi1989

    Great song! Love the way it transitions between the chorus riff and the gentle jam bits... and then... man, fuck it. I love Clutch.

  41. Ynffy

    Winning!

  42. MrShongololo

    Beast indeed!
