"The Catalyst" is a song by American rock band Linkin Park. Released on August 2, 2010, it is the first single from their fourth studio album, A Thousand Suns, which was released on September 8, 2010. The music video for the song, directed by the band's Joe Hahn, was released on August 26, 2010. It is used in the trailer of the video game Medal of Honor as well as the theme song of Namco-Bandai's latest Gundam game, Gundam Extreme VS. It was also used in select commercials of the Discovery Channel series, Surviving the Cut. After the Medal of Honor released, it became almost of an anthem for the warfighters in Afghanistan. Many of the operatives listen to Linkin Park before an operation to get into the right frame of mind.

Music VideoEdit

The Music Video is probably about the end of the world or chaos in life, seeing as people were running around to get away from something and buildings were collapsing. The mist probably means that people are lost in life.

LyricsEdit

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
