Alpha Double Negative: Going to Catalina is the second song on the single Songs for Petronius. It was also re-recorded as the third track on the album Nothing for Juice. The version on Songs for Petronius was re-released on the compilation Bitter Melon Farm.

It is one of only two full songs (the other being "Going to Dade County") that belongs to both the Alpha and Going to... series.

LyricsEdit

I hear you starting up again
I see you standing on the deck
I hear your voice start to carry
I see the veins throbbing in your neck

And I know what you're saying
And I know what you're saying it for
But I'm not listening
I'm not listening anymore

And I see you come toward me
I see the sun climb down the sky
I hear your voice getting faster and louder
I see a stranger in your eyes

And I know what you're saying
And I know what you're saying it for
But I'm not listening
I'm not listening anymore
