"For Prayer" as written by and Jennifer Lynn Wasner....
All this dirt is my disease
Please, please

Wanted hands but I got knees

You drop by to help me out
Out, out
Baby, what's all this about?

You thought you're better than you were
I wanted beast but I got bird

There's no room and there's not time
So you scratch yours and I'll scratch mine

Sinned to, a way to a body tied
I guess I do believe in God

But I'll forgive and make it right
If it freezes up tonight

So cross your fingers say a prayer
You don't believe but I don't care

You either win it or you don't
It happens now, unless it won't

Cross your fingers, say a prayer
You don't believe but I don't care

You either win it or you don't
It happens now, unless it won't

    General Commenti love this song. thanks for putting it up. i think its about being very different with someone that you're in a relationship with, but just being it in because you want to be. but its a contradiction because despite your differences, you're with that person anyway. and you're gonna use that person for your needs if you know if its wrong.

    and i'm open to my interpretation being totally off. :)

    General Commenti always thought she was saying, "your thoughts are better than your word" and "it happens now, or else it won't"

    General CommentI think the song is about being in a bad situation and asking for help, but all you get is prayers and good wishes.

    "I wanted hands, but I got knees"

    It's like she's saying she wanted someone who would help out, and not just prayers.

    Baby, what's all this about?

    Your thoughts are better than your words.
    I wanted bees, but I got birds.

    There's no room and there's not time
    So you scratch yours and I'll scratch mine

    It's into winter, but it's hot.
    I guess I do believe in God

    But I'll forgive and make it right
    If it freezes up tonight

    So cross your fingers say a prayer
    You don't believe but I don't care

    You either win it or you don't
    It happens now, or else it won't

    Cross your fingers, say a prayer
    You don't believe but I don't care

    You either win it or you don't
    It happens now, or else it won't
