Big & Rich. That's why I pray.

Ah ah ah,
Man on the TV's gone insane... everybody's just like that
People across the world holding on, the earth caved in, the ocean came down crashing,
My neighbor lost his house cause he can't find a job,
Don't you dare pledge allegiance,
Don't you dare speak of God, speak of God.

Oh, oh, oh.

I'm begging for forgiveness, I wanna make a difference
Even in the smallest of ways
I'm only one person but I can feel it working
I believe in better days.
That's why I pray.
Some stupid video posted as a joke, somebody's life gets ruined
Out of everything we can create, where is the cure to keep the sick from losing
Babies having babies, cause their parents are always gone
Somehow we've forgotten how to make a house a home, how to make a house a home. Oh, yeah, yeah

I'm begging for forgiveness, I wanna make a difference
Even in the smallest of ways
I'm only one person but I can feel it working,
I believe in better days
That's why I pray.

There's demons from my past haunt me every night
And I just can't get through it
If I could forget them on my own, I'd let them go and just move on.
But heaven knows I am only human,

And that's why I pray x2. I pray x3

Yes, I'm begging for forgiveness x2, I just wanna make a difference
I believe, I believe in better days
That's why I pray

    But heaven knows I am only human,
