F.T. Island's Hongki revealed that "Pray" was actually a song for the Sewol ferry incident.
He posted a photo of their 5th album 'I Will' and wrote, "I know I'm saying this late, but it was a song for you guys. It was a song for a suffocating reality. #SewolFerry #Pray". "Pray" was the title song to their 5th album composed by member Jonghun, with lyrics by Jonghun, Hongki, Jaejin, and Seunghyun.
Lyrics to the song include, "All the lies that whispered in a different reality/The truth disappears and gets trapped in darkness/My shouts get smaller in this powerless reality/They're just meaningless things in this world of lies."
