    The Catalyst Lyrics 03:06
    This is not the end, this is not the beginning
    Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
    But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and
    Though the words sound steady, something empty’s within ‘em
    We say yeah / with fists flying up in the air
    Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there
    ‘Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and fear
    Until we dead it / forget it / let it all disappear
    
    Waiting for the end to come / wishing I had strength to stand
    This was not what I had planned
    It’s out of my control
    Flying at the speed of light / thoughts were spinning in my head
    So many things were left unsaid
    It’s hard to let you go
    
    I know what it takes to move on
    I know how it feels to lie
    All I want to do is trade this life for something new
    Holding on to what I haven’t got
    
    Sitting in an empty room / Trying to forget the past
    This was never meant to last
    I wish it wasn’t so
    
    What was left when that fire was gone
    I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
    All caught up in the eye of the storm
    And trying to figure out what it’s like moving on
    And I don’t even know what kind of things I said
    My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead so
    Picking up the pieces now where to begin
    The hardest part of ending is starting again
    God bless us every one
    We’re a broken people living under loaded gun
    And it can’t be outfought
    It can’t be outdone
    It can’t be outmatched
    It can’t be outrun
    No
    
    And when I close my eyes tonight
    To symphonies of blinding light
    (God bless us every one / we’re a broken people living under loaded gun)
    Oh / like memories in cold decay
    Transmissions echoing away
    Far from the world of you and I
    Where oceans bleed into the sky
    
    God save us every one
    Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns
    For the sins of our hand
    The sins of our tongue
    The sins of our father
    The sins of our young
    No
    
    And when I close my eyes tonight
    To symphonies of blinding light
    (God save us every one / will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns)
    Oh / like memories in cold decay
    Transmissions echoing away
    Far from the world of you and I
    Where oceans bleed into the sky
    
    Lift me up
    Let me go
