Come forth for the cattle call
Confront the evil river you can't control
Wicked ways and venomous eyes
Just human nature in disguise
Lost in this world, out on the edge
With death by our sides

Today I sworn that I wouldn't mourn ya
Clouds over California
If that's the way it's gonna be then I'll fuckin' go it alone
I'm a saint in sinners eyes
Curse the clouds over California
This is the call to obey
Let the chaos reign!

Bloodshot and weary-eyed
We took you in full of sin and pride
It'll take you and break you away
It'll tear you apart

Today I sworn I wouldn't mourn ya
Clouds over California
If that's the way it's gonna be then I'll fuckin' go it alone
I'm a saint in sinners eyes
Curse the clouds over California
This is the call to obey
Let the chaos reign!

{Solo}

If that's the way it's gonna be the I'll fuckin' go it alone
I'm a saint in sinners eyes
Curse the clouds over California
This is the call to obey
Let the chaos reign!

I'm a saint in sinners eyes
Curse the clouds over California
This is the call to obey
Let the chaos reign!

    I'm a saint in sinners eyes
    curse the clouds over california
    this is the cultural pain
    let the chaos reign

    "cultural pain" ?
    or "call to obey"

    i believe it is "call to obey"

    The songs about distinguishing yourself from the crowd "come forth from the cattle call" and "i'll go it alone". In my opinion this is an anthem about standing against conformity and our society.

    I also was confused by "call to obey" or "culture of pain" but i think its "call to obey" because of the first line, "come forth for the cattle call. "
