"Catastrophe" as written by Michael Goodman, Austin Bello, Caleb Turman, Jonathan Cook, Kyle Burns, Kent Garrison and Marc Stewart....
Wake up your a drama queen
Carry on like your supposed to be
Get away hurry up come on
Get away

How long have you been in your bedroom?
It's been three days straight with your sheets and your pillows
The crack on the walls a reminder of my father and all his integrity
I know that I shouldn't let it get to me (But it does and who am I kidding)
A dead end job unlike a family
This town gets to me

Wake up your a drama queen
Carry on like your supposed to be
Get away hurry up come on
Get away gotta get up and bail
Break out from the drama scene
Stick around and you'll bury me
Get away hurry up come on
This is becoming a catastrophe

I've made up my mind took time to think of everything I could do
It may be hard but I'm trying hard to comprehend where I quit and where I should begin

I know that I shouldn't let it get to me (But it does and who am I kidding)
A dead end job unlike a family
This town gets to me

Wake up your a drama queen
Carry on like your supposed to be
Get away hurry up come on
Get away gotta get up and bail
Break out from the drama scene
Stick around and you'll bury me
Get away hurry up come on
This is becoming a catastrophe

This is becoming a catastrophe

Your a fake
A product of a no good
Average mistake
To come and remain

I know that I shouldn't let it get to me (But it does and who am I kidding)

Wake up your a drama queen
Carry on like your supposed to be
Get away hurry up come on
Get away gotta get up and bail
Break out from the drama scene
Stick around and you'll bury me
Get away hurry up come on
This is becoming a catastrophe

    General CommentI love this song. Def. my favorite off the album.

    I think of it being family drama because “reminder of my father and all his integrity”. I see a mom locking herself in her room because of a fight with the dad (maybe financial because of a “dead end job”). Then the next part “I shouldn’t let it get to me, but it does” it’s not the kids fault but the kid feels like it is. They just want to get away from all the fighting because it’s “becoming a catastrophe” and out of control. They want to help their parents but they wouldn’t know where to start or how to help. The longer that the drama goes on the more it hurts (“stick around, it’ll bury me”)

    Then the last part- “You're a fake, A product of a world, Who I've always mistaked, To come and remain”. I relate it the first part with the cracks on the wall and father’s integrity.. meaning the dad caused the cracks on the wall because of his lack of or “fake” integerty. The kid always looked up to the dad but now realizes it was a mistake.


    thats just how I see it.. it reminds me of my parents divorce and all that stuff.
