“Prayers don’t mean a thing at all”, sing Good Charlotte in the new powerful single

September 1, 2018

In the light of their upcoming new album, Good Charlotte have released a profound new single, ‘Prayers’. The band’s seventh album, Generation Rx, which features ‘Prayers’, is just two weeks away, September 14.

But despite the common title of the new single, you’re not going to hear Brendon-Urie like anthemic “Hallelujah / Say your prayers”. On the contrary, Good Charlotte are raising the question why send all these prayers, hurting each other, as in reality “we can’t feel the pain in one another’s”. And it’s hard not to relate to these lines, written with no pretence:

None of this makes sense
In this reality
God just leaves the room when I turn on my TV
I see a little girl who’s crying because she lost her family
All these strangers sending thoughts and prayers
She’s buried underneath
