"Catalyst" as written by and Anna Nalick....
L.A. lights
Never shine quite as bright as in the movies
Still wanna go?
'Cause something here
In the way, in the way that we're constantly moving
Reminds you of home

So you're taking these pills for to fill up your soul
And you're drinking them down with cheap alcohol
And I'd be inclined to be yours for the taking
And part of this terrible mess that you're making
But me, I'm the catalyst

When you say love, hmm
Is a simple chemical reaction
Can't say I agree
'Cause my chemical, yeah, yeah
Left me a beautiful disaster
Still love's all I see

So I'm taking these pills for to fill up my soul
And I'm drinking them down with cheap alcohol
And you'd be inclined to be mine for the taking
And part of this terrible mess that I'm making
But you, you're the catalyst

And you'll be the vein, you'll be the pain
You'll be the scar
You'll be the road, rolling below
The wheels of a car
And all of my thoughts on
God, don't know if I'm strong enough now
You'll be the vein, you'll be the pain
You'll be the
Catalyst

These L.A. Lights, no no
They don't shine quite as bright as back in Frisco
Do you wanna go?
Still wanna go

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who gets involved with a guy who is into drugs and in the end, he drags her down...he seems unaffected but she then find she needs the alcohol and drugs! Beautiful song, as always by the lovely Ms. Nalick!
