Pray for Me Lyrics

I'm always ready for a war again
Go down that road again
It's all the same
I'm always ready to take a life again
You know I'll ride again
It's all the same (ooh, ooh, ooh)
Tell me who's gon' save me from myself
When this life is all I...

    I think the song talks about the racial injustice that goes on between the social classes and races today. Kendrick feels as though the African Americans of the United States are expected to sacrifice and serve. The whole hero part means that the only person you can truly 100% count on is yourself. You need to be the hero that saves you. You need to be the one to make the change you want.

    I'd say for the most part, that I think this song is about how people of color are expected to blindly respect and serve a country they live in (in this case, America) especially in regards to military enlistment, that doesn't treat, serve, or respect them as much as they should. It takes me back to pre Civil Rights Era/Vietnam War era wars in which many draftees of color were forced to fight for America despite not having full civil rights.
