Clutch - Struck Down Lyrics

Struck down by a vision of beauty
Said I was struck down by a long legged archer
Oh the city was hot, but my blood ran cold
Oh, the city went dark, keep calm and carry on.
I was a young man, only 19 years old.
I was a young man so very far away from home.

Ah she got me, struck down, right through the heart, struck down.
Ah she shot me, struck down, right through the heart, struck down.

Keep calm and carry on, reefer madness quiets the falling bomb.

I want to be an old man, damn you, von Braun.
I've been laid low by a blinding light.
I've been torn asunder by the banshee's wail.

Ah she got me, struck down, right through the heart, struck down.
Ah she shot me, struck down, right through the heart, struck down.

Keep calm and carry on, reefer madness quiets the falling bomb.

I was a young man, only 19 years old.
I was a very young man so very far away from home.
I was imprisoned by a vision of beauty.
I was struck down by the long legged archer.

Keep calm and carry on, reefer madness quiets the falling bomb.

    Clutch is such a tight musical unit. Their music has evolved into pure rock fury.

  20. Bram Cano

    @s10wcheetah you are horrible. just horrible. only someone as evil and perverted as you could say something like that. jcfromap is right.

  21. s10wcheetah

    @jcfromap *sniffles* why you gotta be like that man?

  22. s10wcheetah

    @jcfromap You'll hear Clutch at the strip club I'll own. Hey! And in 13 years I can hire your daughter ;)

    s10wcheetah 6 years to go man

  23. s10wcheetah

    @jcfromap What Clutch song do you she'll come out to once she turns stripper?

  24. robotface74

    i actually feel bad that i got into this band about a year ago. i wish i knew them sooner because it would have given me a better appreciation for good music such as this.

  25. Jim Thompson

    @jcfromap That is freakin' awesome man. It's important for us to pas along what we think is worth the time. My kids like Clutch, too, but they're not TOOinto it. My son likes them more than the others; He really likes the way the words sound. Great stuff.

  26. Christian Allinson Fischer

    Thumbs up if you came here because you searched for "calm stoner music".

  41. FlamingHomelessDude

    thank you Mr.Knott

  42. Drumology UK

    Amen to that brother!!!

  43. alternatemoniker

    Another great album, and I love this track. Really looking forward to catching them in Oct in KC. One of the few bands that I make a serious effort to watch every time they pass anywhere nearby.

    wysiwyg1000 is correct, great driving music. Best part is my son can't get enough of it, cracks me up hearing an 8 y/o wandering around singing his favorite Clutch songs.

  44. william phillips

    Clutch and Ween are the only groups I have to buy the new CD as soon as they come out. Both these groups are amazing live also. Neils a heck of a nice guy. I got some CD's signed by him in Faitvill Arkansas one time. True to thier art and we love em for it keep it up.

  45. wysiwyg1000

    Actually I think it's supposed to represent the letters 'ch'?

  46. wysiwyg1000

    Oh yes indeed!! Ultimate driving music.. The cd holder/foldout work of art is awesome, but not very practical. Can anyone tell me about the last 4 dots on the inside of the outer cover? I'm guessing that it represents the letter 'h', but how?

  47. Mark Boyd

    Long live Clutch. They take care of their fans. One of a very, very few bands you can count on as a fan to deliver every time. Can't wait to get the disc tomorrow, and man are these guys smokin' live. I agree with Greydjinn...We NEED clutch these days!

  48. wormdrink414

    Agree totally.
