I woke up to the silence, an eerie kind of quiet
that voice inside that tells you something's wrong
Her purse was on the table
teddy bear was in the cradle
everything was here but they were gone
and toys were in the hallway
her car was in the driveway
I was calling her name but there was no answer
then I walked by the TV,
saw a million people like me
panicked cause their loved ones disappear
there were a thousand explanations
from terrorists to aliens
reporter said it's worse then we had feared
and right then I knew exactly what on earth was happening
I was left behind and standing
in the morning after ... The Rapture

Maybe I should have read her Bible or gone to that revival
or thought a little more about my soul
But I didn't have no time for Jesus
or see how a cross could free us
or believed there was a heaven like I was told
now I'm still here praying I could go

and toys are in the hallway
her car is in the driveway
she said this would happen someday
Oh and everybody's asking what on earth is happening
and I'm left behind and stranded, trembling with the answer....The Rapture
The Rapture
The Rapture
