    “Don’t Know Who to Pray to Anymore” from the Bumblefoot album "Little Brother Is Watching" [lyrics & info below...]

    Clocking in at over seven minutes, “Don’t Know Who to Pray to Anymore” is a true return to form for the epic music video format, with storyline footage showcasing characters in various stages of life, from childhood to adult, hitting an emotional 'rock bottom', faced with a life-changing choice.  The stories are left open-ended, so you can ask yourself what choice you would make.

    "This song speaks for those that feel lost, betrayed, disillusioned, when we question all we believe in. When we start to lash out, and punish ourselves. This is a song about being in this place, in our own personal purgatory.  We know we need to heal, but we're not ready to let go."

    Directed by Vojan Koceic, “Don’t Know Who…” was a massive undertaking, filmed in three countries at 12 locations, including the Western Wall in Jerusalem, and gaining exclusive access to ancient Roman ruins by the Jordanian border, with the distinction of being the only music video to ever have been shot there (filmed by Director of Photography Ami Bornstein). Additional band performances were filmed in Croatia at the Fortress of Klis and the Diocletian Palace (locations seen on the TV show "Game of Thrones"), plus an additional 8 sets and featuring more than 50 actors.

    “This video needed to be filmed in locations that have a deep historic and spiritual presence.” says Thal. Additional filming locations included The Grianan of Aileach Ring Fort at a hilltop in Northern Ireland.

    LYRICS:
    Don't Know Who To Pray To Anymore

    Once upon a time a child
    Grew up too fast, went runnin' wild
    Now he don't know who to pray to anymore

    I once thought God was good and kind
    Then Mother Nature blew my mind
    And left my broken body on the floor
    Now I don't know who to pray to anymore But when the world gets real
    And I start to feel
    The first thing I do
    Is turn to you
    And then pull away
    Until comes the day
    Where I just can't live
    And learn to forgive I've got a song that needs to be sung
    But I don't know who to play to anymore

    We bet away what's in our hand
    And then we're told it was the plan
    They say all's fair, but someone's keeping score

    I've seen it all, I've seen the lies
    False promises for compromise
    Fought every battle, but still I lost the war
    Now I don't know who to pray to anymore But when the world gets real
    And I start to feel
    The first thing I do
    Is turn to you
    And then pull away
    Until comes the day
    Where I just can't live
    And learn to forgive I know I've changed
    Can't find my way
    When all is dark
    Or is it my heart
    That won't come to the light
    I'm bad to myself
    As a show for you to see
    So maybe you'll agree
    That you should have been there more for me Got an old guitar that needs to be strung
    But I don't know who to play to anymore

    So why should I still believe
    When everyone's out to deceive
    And all our dreams get washed back on the shore

    And fate will prove to be most cruel
    Yet hope remains for the helpless fool
    Pawns of selfish right & righteous wrong
    No I don't know who to pray to anymore
    I don't know who to pray to anymore
