The title track of Sixx: A.M's fourth album, this was inspired by current events in the United States and the rest of the world. Vocalist James Michael said during an interview on Berlin, Germany's Star FM: "It's an election year, and it is probably the most vicious, loudest, most aggressive election year any of us have ever experienced in our lifetimes, and there's a reason for that. People feel desperate, people feel scared, people feel angry, people are dissatisfied with leadership, and so if you're an artist, you cannot be creating art and just ignore that element to it.
'Prayers For The Damned' is a unique song and it's a unique title, because it really gets right to the heart of that. It deals with that struggle between good and evil on a very personal level, and it also deals with it on a very global level, and I think it's gonna connect with people on a number of different levels because of that."
