"Pray For Me" as written by and Puff Ewanya/james Johnson....
She lights a candle, but she doesn't know why.
She wants to save me, but I'm barely alive.
My soul is thirsty. I just wanna get high.
Make her go away.

Now I'm hitting the wall and she begs me to quit,
And she drags me to church but I'm scared to commit,
And I'm loosing my mind 'cause she hides all my shit.
She wont go away.

And all I ask of her is
Pray for me,
'Cause I don't want to
Pray for me,
If you love me.
Cross your heart and hope that I wont die before the best day of my life.
Just pray for me tonight.

I dragged myself out of the bed that she made,
And I escape her in a black motercade
She's pushing bibles and a clean bill of health.
I can't make her go away.

Now I'm hitting the wall and she begs me to quit,
And she drags me to church but I'm scared to commit,
And I'm loosing my mind 'cause she hides all my shit.
She wont go away.

And all I ask of her is
Pray for me,
'Cause I don't want to
Pray for me,
If you love me.
Cross your heart and hope that I don't die before the best day of my life.
Just pray for me tonight.

Now I'm hitting the wall and she begs me to quit,
And she drags me to church but I'm scared to commit,
And I'm loosing my mind 'cause she hides all my shit.
And all I ask of her is
Pray for me,
I don't want to
Pray for me,
If you love me.
Cross your heart and hope that I don't die before the best day of my life.
(Pray for me tonight)
Pray for me
(Pray for me tonight)
Pray for me
(Pray for me tonight)
Pray for me
(Pray for me tonight)
Pray for me
(Pray for me to- )

    General CommentHaving just finished the book, this song stands out to me as being all about Vanity and her impact (negative and positive) on Sixx's behavior during the mid '80s. Especially considering Vanity's current evangelical work, the Pray for Me lyrics definitely point to her!

    General CommentSorry Foo Man, but Nikki Sixx isn't the singer, he's still the bassist/songwriter. Nikki Sixx is the one who died twice, the singer is a friend of his.

    General CommentI think that flame410 was right, cause I just finished reading the book, and in the book he says "all i ask of her, is pray for me" and he's talking about Vanity. If you've read the book you'll see the refferences he uses that are in the lyrics. :]
    Pretty self explainitory.

    General CommentEvery time I listen to this, it makes me feel like 100 times better about life just because it makes me remember there's people out there that want to help. But like he says "But I'm scared to commit" I also, am afraid to ask for help. Nikki Sixx is amazing, what I think the song means though is that he's going through rehab or something and the nurse is just trying to help but he doesn't want the help even though he needs it. and it's driving him insane. hmmm...
