Nobody Praying For Me

Album: Isolate And Medicate (2014)


  • Seether frontman Shaun Morgan had this song's chorus way before he came up with the verse. "I struggled with that verse," he told Artist Direct. "I thought the chorus had a good melody, and I liked what the chorus was saying at the beginning. I had about three or four different verse ideas, and I eventually settled on the one it has now."

    "I had the melody and music ideas at the same time," he added. "That usually doesn't happen very often. I think I was in the shower, and I started singing it. I went upstairs to my studio and began writing it. It came out pretty quickly, and I was happy with the result. I knew it was a good chorus so I had to write a verse that would complement it. Sometimes, it works that way. It's not always that the verse comes first and is followed by a chorus. Quite often, the chorus comes first, and I have to think, 'How can I make a verse that matches that?' That was an interesting one to write. I think it would be one of my favorites on the album."
