"You Better Pray" as written by and Ronnie Winter....
I see the sweat is dripping
That's because you know just what I'm thinking
Don't look back it's me who follows
And there ain't nothing from me you can borrow

You like to hide behind lies
But we see through your disguise
It's not a threat or a curse
Just a proper verse

I'm gonna make you let go
Of what you tried to withhold
And I can promise it won't be long
Yes I can promise

Boy, you better pray
We don't seek you out, no
You better pray

You think the war is over
I've only shown you the tip of the iceberg
And you rely upon your lawyers
But at night when you sleep does it bother you?

You like to hide behind lies
But we see through your disguise
It's not a threat or a curse
Just a proper verse

I'm gonna make you let go
Of what you tried to withhold
And I can promise it won't be long
Yes I can promise

Boy, you better pray
We don't seek you out, no
You better hope
We might lose control, no

Is this good enough for you man?

Boy, you better pray
We don't seek you out, no
You better hope
We might lose control, no

    General Commentby accident i hit reply to ethans comment...sorry ethan
    i think its a pretty good song, its got a lot of good guitar in it, a bit different then their usual and more variety
    i think this song is about someone takeing advantage of someone and asking too much from them, and he's starting to get scared because the other guy is starting to turn on him

    General CommentWhen I heard this on the radio, I would have never guessed it was RJA. Now I've never been a huge fan of theirs, but it wasn't like I didn't like them. (Ass shaker was a great song) I was neutral when it came to them. But this, this is a pleasant change up. The vocal harmonies on "....out" on the chorus are insanely impressive. I thought this was some new band that just came out, and as a musician I was wow'ed at how well this song was put together. And I don't even like this southern rock sound.

    The vocal notes he hits on the beginning and the end are mind blowing. I would have never guessed he had such an impressive range. At the very beginning when he hit that first note, I was like "I'm gonna be pissed if this is Axl and the new Guns & Roses" because I despise that guy and I was diggin the song. Right when he sang on the verse I knew it wasn't. I had to look it up on my phone, and when RJA came up as the search result for "You better pray, we don't seek you out" I was like, there's no way!

    But it was, and now my mind is blown. Much better than that poppy punk-ish sound. Way to expand your horizons RJA! Kudos!

    General CommentThis song is pretty fucking awesome.
    :D
    I had to get used to the new stuff, it's quite different from the old stuff.
    But I think I really like it.

    General CommentMaybe it's a song about exposing the illuminati?

    You like to hide behind lies
    But we see through your disguise
    It's not a threat or a curse
    Just a proper verse

    I'm gonna make you let go
    Of what you tried to withhold
    And I can promise it won't be long
    Yes I can promise
