The five videos tell the story of Jake Young, a fictional black teenager who is shot and killed by police, with each video showing the event from a different perspective.

"Our goal in creating this video is for people to educate themselves and make an informed decision on their own, rather than being told by any media outlet saying, this is what you should be thinking, this is what is right," says frontman Shaun Morgan in a statement. "The whole point is to try and shift the way we look at things and to not always leap to our pre-conceived conclusions, which is mostly racially and profile-based, because that's what we get fed all the time. I've been guilty of it too. It's very unfortunate, and it's getting worse instead of better."

The five videos include the story from Jake's perspective and from the perspective of the cop who shoots him, Officer Holloway, plus a clip from a bystander's cell phone footage and two news reports. In one news report, the station uses a photo of Jake drinking and partying while the other station uses a photo of Jake in a graduation cap and gown in its report.

"Nobody Praying for Me" appears on Seether's latest album, 2014's Isolate and Medicate.
