Prayers

Album: Generation Rx (2018)
  • Born on a lonely planet full of broken dreams
    Where no one understands me
    When I finally met an angel I didn't know what to say
    She just held my hand

    And we would lay awake at night
    Looking at the stars, thinking of the ones we've lost
    And wonder where they are
    When we lit another candle she asked me who's to blame
    Then she put her arms around me and held me to the flames

    So why do we hurt each other?
    We don't need the words for one an-others
    Prayer
    They don't mean a thing at all
    Do they answer when you call?
    These prayers, when you don't mean what you say
    Would you die for me today?
    No, I just can't relate

    None of this makes sense in this reality
    God just leaves the room when I turn on my TV
    I see a little girl who's crying 'cause she lost her family
    All these strangers sending thoughts and prayers
    She buried underneath

    Why do we kill each other?
    We can't feel the pain in one anothers

    Prayer
    They don't mean a thing at all
    Do they answer when you call?
    These prayers, when you don't mean what you say
    Would you die for me today?
    No, I just can't relate

    We're so far away from one another
    We keep building walls between each others

    Prayers
    They don't mean a thing at all
    Do they answer when you call?
    These prayers, when you don't mean what you say
    Would you die for me today?
    No, I just can't relate

    (They don't mean a thing at all
    Do they answer when you call?
    These prayers, when you don't mean what you say
    Would you die for me today?) Writer/s: Benji Madden, Joel Madden, Zakk Cervini
