Staying true to form is important for us. Our music reflects the most human aspects of who we truly are inside, along with our take on the world around us. We thrive on criticism and things that make us take a second glance. Inspiration never runs short on us.

Biography

Catalyst for Change is if nothing else, an honest, hard working band. We write songs that hold up in a world of cookie-cutter bands that seem to be cloned from the same CLEARCHANNEL mold. We all have influences. Our sound is influential.

Lyrics

Patsy

Written By: Catalyst for Change

Decide. choice is it so hard? where's your commitment? do you like who you are? relying on what you assume, dont think that you'll be better off on down. you really think you got something? well what's in your hand's is falling short of substance. and you're spread too thin. I battle and i sway against the forefront of my misery but dont you make, dont you make a mockery of me.
Im not your patsy. Not your scapegoat, allabye, blacksheep, your hands they bear the blame. and its all done in your name. what did i come here for?
Ive come here to focus and heal. here to face my darkest inner fear. whats next after here? relying in what you assume. dont roll your soul down to em'. I love it too much to let go. I love you so much you cant go.
choice. not another line to stand in. a voice boxed up and branded. I didnt come to leave a message im here to take you home. repress all that you remember about what you started.
Ive come here to know. Ive come here to find the cure for whats been, that cure for whats been killing me. Ive come here to find. ive come here to find the cure for whats been, whats been.
It is not stopping. it is not stopping. it never stops.

MATRESS DOLLS

Written By: CATALYST FOR CHANGE

Im not on your level. you are handing me your shovel. Its an unnerving disbelief. and im haunted by the truth. The truth? you lock the doors but still i walk through. and its hard to sleep unless i am inside of you. You, you think this is all just a game. well, say my name. say my name. you cant handel it. you cant handel it all. you cant handle the pressure.

matress dolls your so uninvolved, your legs are open but your mind is closed. empty within and youre paper thin, i know you want it all. matress dolls your so uninvolved, your legs are open but your mind is closed. empty within and youre paper thin, i know youre trying to live off all the strength in me.

inside of your savings. and i am haunted by my cravings. you cant handle the pressure. so you press yourself to me.
you cant handel it. you cant handel it all. you cant handle the pressure.

matress dolls your so uninvolved, your legs are open but your mind is closed. empty within and youre paper thin, i know you want it all. matress dolls your so uninvolved, your legs are open but your mind is closed. empty within and youre paper thin, i know youre trying to live off all the strength in me.

they are all involved inside of the annuerism. innocense has become a crime. take it off. fill the void up at any cost. get me off. im sorry but its the truth.

matress dolls your so uninvolved, your legs are open but your mind is closed. empty within and youre paper thin, i know you want it all. matress dolls your so uninvolved, your legs are open but your mind is closed. empty within and youre paper thin, i know youre trying to live off all the strength in me.

DOCTRINE

Written By: CATALYST FOR CHANGE

Its in my heart i swear that its there. its there. i am too young to feel this old. there is no need for you to compare. im right there. if you have a place to go wont you please go there?

Im made of, what are you made of i think you made it all up. youve got no higher right. so tonight if youre looking ill be the one here with your fight. lets see what youve got on me.

born by love or born by hate. dont be to stubborn as to out yourself in my way. made of fleash or made of steel. steal. when you start rusting you need to give yourself, give yourself some time to heal.

Im made of, what are you made of i think you made it all up. youve got no higher right. so tonight if youre looking ill be the one here with your fight.

make up your mind. throw your hands up or just sit down. make up your mind. throw your hands up or just get back into the crowd.

dont tell me the answers i cant make the grade. ive got my doctrine in you and i never once turned a page. i bury them hard when i cant shake them off. dont ever afford you fate by overlooking your own cost.

Im made of, what are you made of i think you made it all up. youve got no higher right. so tonight if youre looking ill be the one here with your fight.

you live your life. and ill live mine. god forbid that your hand ever finds its way back in, into whats mine. god forbid that ever one day you think of crossing that line. yes well, i wont ask you for my space. no goddamn i wont ask you for my space. no i wont ask.

Discography

"Agora" was the title of our first e.p. that we released in the fall of 2004. It was written, recorded, and mixed in our Over the Rhine practice studio in Cincinnati Ohio. We had little to no money to spare, so we bought a 16 bit 8 track recorder, laid our tracks, and mixed down on our p.c.
We have put much more time and money into our latest effort. It's a three song effort that is titled "insurgence" and features tracks like "PATSY", "DOCTRINE", and "MATRESS DOLLS" which were all recorded and mixed by us in our newly remodled G.F.Y. studio. (we vaccumed). it is available to listen/download on our website www.cfcband.com., myspace, localbands101.com, or via this epk.

Set List

The atmosphere of a venue or the other bands on the bill always are a factor when we choose songs for a set. the list below is a very diverse collection of songs to pick and choose from. Occasionally, Nick (vocals), will do an acoustic number or two if the mood is right.

matress dolls
doctrine
inhuman heart
divide by zero
past has passed
unpopular truth
at all cost
straight at you
the same machine
impressions
reality in doses
simple wish
years ago
close my eyes
patsy

That's the set we play when we're not pressed for time. obviously we'll play our favorites when time is a factor. regaurdless we always give a great show and make an impression on people.
