Lyrics
say little baby I hear you crying
I know you want me to come and to save you
do you see the angels they hear you calling
I know they're coming down now to save you
oh how the night sky fills up with falling angels
if you decide to run no one here would blame you
no place to run to hide the angels coming faster
there's no place for you tonight you know just what theyre after
saw you running to your hiding place theres no safty in shadow
you better get down on your knees and pray you better get down on your knees and pray
theres no point in running now youre moments from your capture
you better get down on your knees and pray because its you whose called the rapture
I know your terrified baby let it go let it go
theres more out there theres more to see theres everything
you know the end is coming thats why you run
but why now are you running you are the one
you prayed you called you brought this down on you
you asked for there help after all
maybe one day somebody will call you
and you will have your chance to fall
I know your terrified baby let it go let it go
theres more out there theres more to see theres everything
I know you are terrified when you look inside when you close your eyes deep inside
can you run
I know your terrified baby let it go let it go
theres more out there theres more to see theres everything

Original Version
I absolutely fought liking this version of Rapture, made up my mind even before hearing the mastered version. I so love the original "first" version. However, after hearing the mastered version...I love it. Bryn did a super job mastering this track.

interesting soundbed
coupled with a remarkable vocal delivery. The mix is wonderful. Sonically, it's pretty perfect. Really great work.

I'm afraid I am going to have to say that your lyrics are not hitting the mark (at least for me) this time around. They need a lot of tightening. You need to give the listener something to latch onto, something memorable. It's not that they're bad the way they are, it's just that there is nothing to make them stand out. I wouldn't be saying this for most people, but I know you're capable for more from listening to some of your other stuff.

oh man Gaylen - this is just superb. your lyrical capabilities are really showing themselves and as always your voice is just KILLER! i'm trying to find the first version - did you post it? i always love comparing, but in the absence of that - lol - THIS is my favorite version! Bryn's mastering comes shining through - he really frosts the cake doesn't he?? Beautiful work G-man!

Be careful what you wish for
I know I have a warped taste in music, but I think this is my favorite of yours so far. Heavy, serious, rocking, with interesting lyrics and concept.

Great work
nice man. When I come up with something worthy of that voice we should collab again. This track is solid. Nice job on the final mix/master. Clean yet dirty. Nice transitions. that 2:13 crunch is dope.

Wow, you sure got the pipes
for a powerful song like this. The lyrics are pretty specific yet pretty ambiguous and I can't see them appealing to everybody. Well I find them ambiguous, but I guess your experience here is foreign to me. No sweat.
Cheers.

sparkly ball
For some reason i see a nightclub setting, lightshow, weird people gyrating in strobe shadows, nobody listening as such, but living the song, moving to the beat.

Listening to it from outside, as it were, the experience is not so effective, for me, just like one would feel walking cold into the rapturous confusion of a late night crowd, perhaps, uncomprehending, and intimidated.

Do you function as a DJ at such events, by any chance, from time to time?

Effective, by its own lights, and well put together beyond my criticism.


Cheers for the post.

Well you are the very first listener to sense my intentional distancing in the lyric and music. I wont bore anyone with the hours spent trying to make this a story as apposed to a tale. Lol thanks for the listen.

jdholliday said 2303 days ago (December 2nd, 2010)
wow
deep subject matter, this is pretty wild, you are telling a short tale with music, I think? and what a great point, lots of people wanting to be raptured might be unpleasantly surprised if it really happened! Great job Gaylen, I think I finally "got you" with this song! you might even be inventing a new genre if you're not careful! well done!

Foreboding
Hi Gaylen, I had to listen to this song several times to come to terms with it. It is quite dark and has a sense of foreboding. Fantastic vocals and sound bed though. The mastering is really first class as well. Thanks, Peter.

I have to say my favorite thing about this tune is... everything. The vocal delivery is, as usual, dastardly. The synth blip lead in is suitably quirky. The the tune has a very Sound Garden meets Rob Zombie vibe to it and is really killer. Thx for the DL.

Killer! The slow steady buildup to the chorus is intense. GREAT vocal performance (though that is kind of a given with you :)) The finished product sounds really, really good - another fine work you've given to us here - thanks!

has been so kind with the comments. I thank you for noticing the struggles that I went through to build this to the chorus. I cant say the song is perfect but very satisfying to me.

Great vocals. The lyric tells an interesting story and there are some good images (the night sky fills up with falling angels).
I like the way the arrangement builds. Compelling sound choices, really great mix - sounds pro.

choice
I did have some options but this one really went the way it wanted. I kept trying to get it to grow up but everytime i took out the synth it fell apart, I guess that is what I get for writing from that as a start point. Thanks for the listen!

Amongst your
finest performances Gaylen I like how versatile you are BUT I really love it when you come home.... IMO I hear this as where you live and breathe vocally. This is powerful and melodic and the vocal is what stands out most in this song. It has a very comparable lilt to a "Tea Party" sound. Absolutely stellar on all accounts. Bryn is amongst the best.. but honestly I think he would admit you made it easy for him. When you master a song you get to hear it a few dozen times and it is the good ones you don't tire of listening to. That is why this is so well mastered. I doubt very much anyone would tire of listening to it. Thank you for the free download of an easily salable piece of music.
Peace

I think
That you are right. It could be that I write to my specific voice and that most of my collab work is more of an after thought. I love it when I get to yelp but not scream. This is my favorite place to sing but not my favorite style. lol

I was totally vested when at about the :57 mark you blew my mind with the step up. Great great synth work. I take it this is you? killer dude. I love it.

The vocals rocked btw.

Holy shite this kicks
great sound - absolutely massive. I love the unexpected electronics in the mix and the rhythmic breaks - to say nothing of the killer vocals and guitars. Faith No More never did it better - hope you don't mind the comparison. Gotta give props to PD's mastering - the man's a genius.

I have to
confess that I did not like this as it started ...but at .53 it all kicked off and bit like a rabid rottweiler and does not let go........so it just goes to show that it pays to be like chewing gum and stick around !

Nice One

The vocal here is really strong. Personally, this song is harder than my usual preference, but the vocal here -- excellent! Control across the range is great -- and I love the timbre of your voice. Bravo.
