"Prayers" as written by and Jesse Michael Landry Blake Robert Bunzel....
Breathing in and breathing out
My head leaned back, my hands are tied
I stand in here alone I scream
Questions why

Days slip by and nights I taste
These memories run through my veins
Injecting me with one last kiss
Screaming why

This medication can't save me
And desperation takes hold of me
I wanted to believe in all of this
And I wanted to believe in you
(You believed in me)

All I am, all I have
Leads me down these roads again
Take my hand, show me the way
And never bring me back here

Determination is pushing me
And perseverance is what I bleed
I wanted to believe in all of this
And I wanted to believe in you
(You believed in me)

All I am, all I have
Leads me down these roads again
Take my hand, show me the way
And never bring me back here

These are my unanswered prayers
The time has come for me
To say goodbye

God please hear me calling

All I am, all I have
Leads me down these roads again
Take my hand, show me the way
And never bring me back here again
Never bring me back here again
Never bring me back

These are my unanswered prayers
The time has come for me
To say goodbye

God please hear me calling

    General CommentI am the very first person to comment on this song??? OMG! Well...this song is quite obviously about god, right???

    Determination, is pushing me
    Perseverance, is what I bleed
    I wanted to believe in all of this
    I wanted to believe in you

    This part is just saying how much she wants to believe in god but she just doesn't believe in him.

    Can someone hear me, calling
    God please hear me, calling

    This also explains that she's feeling all alone, she feels like nobody can hear her. She wants...she needs, to hear god's voice. She's calling out that she wants to believe in him. Well...that's what I think??

    General CommentThese are the real lyrics

    Breathing in and breathing out
    My head leaned back my hands are tied
    I'm standing here alone I scream
    Questions why
    Days slip by and nights I taste
    These memories run through my veins
    Injecting me with one last kiss
    Screaming why

    This medication, cant save me
    And desperation, takes hold of me
    I wanted to believe in all of this
    I wanted to believe in you

    All I am, all I have
    Leads me down these roads again
    Take my hand, show me the way
    Never bring me back here

    Determination, is pushing me
    Perseverance, is what I bleed
    I wanted to believe in all of this
    I wanted to believe in you

    All I am, all I have
    Leads me down these roads again
    Take my hand, show me the way
    Never bring me back here

    These are my unanswered prayers
    The time has come for me to say goodbye

    God please hear me, calling

    All I am, all I have
    Leads me down these roads again
    Take my hand, show me the way
    Never bring me back here
    Never bring me back here

    [Screaming]
    Never bring me back here

    These are my unanswered prayers
    The time has come for me to say goodbye

    God please hear me, calling

    General CommentWell i am not completely sure but I thought this song was about some she loved leaving her and her, going into depression. and Nothing she is doing is working right.

    then again...it could be about god...but I am not sure that my opinion

    ps: I saw them in Ozzfest. She's awsome!!

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about the frustration and desperation of trying to let go of the past and start afresh as a pure person, which explains the reference to God and prayers (cleansing of sins etc.) I also think it is about drugs e.g."injecting me with one last kiss" and "medications".

    It's such a beautiful, uplifting, yet somewhat dark song. It gives me shivers when I listen to it. I love In This Moment. I love Maria Brink forever! She's my ultimate girl-crush and a strong, confident woman.

    My InterpretationTo me this song definitly has alot to dp with faith, and the struggles that come with it.

    It could also involve mental illness, and the medication not solving her problems, so she turns to God. It could mean dependancy on drugs, and then turning to God.

    This medication, cant save me
    And desperation, takes hold of me
    I wanted to believe in all of this
    I wanted to believe in you

    Her struggles bring her back to a place she didn't expect to be, relying on God. She tries to trust Him to take away her stuggles, and not bring her back to the desperate state she is in.

    All I am, all I have
    Leads me down these roads again
    Take my hand, show me the way
    Never bring me back here

    Determination, is pushing me
    Perseverance, is what I bleed
    I wanted to believe in all of this
    I wanted to believe in you

    She's done all she can to Get God's attention, but He does not answer her prayers, or at least not in the way she wants Him to. So she is still desperate, and hopes that eventually, God will still help her.

    Never bring me back here

    These are my unanswered prayers
    The time has come for me to say goodbye

    God please hear me, calling

    General CommentI think that it's about struggling to get out of where you are and your position and begging for help on it. You keep making the same mistakes again no matter what you do nothing changes and you want someone to help you.
