Genesis: What I Pray For
I think I'm going to keep the genesis of this song short and sweet. Certainly from a lyrical perspective, I hope that each listener decides what the song is about using their own thoughts and views.
From an overall vibe, the song was essentially--or at least somewhat--conceived as a companion piece to the video.
I believe the song came first, but at the moment the exact chronology escapes me. Just know that the pictures I wanted to paint in the lyrics mirrored that of the pictures I wanted to paint in the video.
Please read the "geekout" section for some fun insight into the recording. I'll leave the rest of the outlook of the song up to you.
