"Rapture" as written by and Chino/carpenter Moreno....
Two different sides
The same kind of thread
Different needle
The world, hey! hey! hey!

It's rapture
But it's a different style
It's rapture
The same kind of thread
Go ahead

I can't
I can't feel like
I can't diffuse
It feels like

What's inside of me?
I will curse you out from me
It's just two different tools, different pieces
Can't choose one
With power

I know where you are now
You twist everything else around
Now you fuck with me

Waste, of time

You said it's worked out, you swear to god!
You said I swear to god, don't want it again!
You said you swear to god, don't want it again!
You said I don't want it again, and you swear to god!

Instead, you just waste
Waste
Waste my time
Instead you just waste
Waste, my time

What takes it away?
I'm the one man suffering
It's just two different views
Different pieces
Can't choose one
With power

I know where you are now
You twist everything else around
Now you fuck with me
Waste of, waste

I can't
I can't feel like
I can't diffuse
It feels like

You said I swear to god, don't want it again!
You said don't want it again, you swear to god!
You said I swear to god, don't want it again!
You said I don't want it again, and you swear to god!

Instead, you just waste
Waste
Waste my time
Instead you just waste
Waste
Waste my time

Two different sides
The same kind of thread
Just different needles
A whole world, hey!

It's rapture
But it's a different style
It's rapture
Same kind of thread

    General Comment"This was written at a very confusing time. In the last few years I've gone through so much and I'm asking myself a lot of questions here. When you listen to it, you can tell how confused I was"

    General Commentthis song is awesome, maybe chinos elaborating on the song hole in the earth, with the band mate and band splitting up thing. seems kind of on his own when he says i'm the one man suffering, its just two different views. yeah can hear the confusion, but not sure exactly what hes saying

    General CommentTo me, It's about a relationship where one person is "using" the other person but the person that is being used does'nt know. He knows how she is now though. He gives her another chance but she's still continuing with her bad habits and just " wasting his time". Probably totally wrong =/

    General CommentThis might have the same meaning as kimdracula , some girl fucking him around , perhaps a metaphor for the world fucking him around as he does sing alot about the "universe" of the soughts , and it appears as hes done everything he can , different worldy veiws , spiritulisms eg eg to get the universe but he cant seem to figure out how to make the "universe" happy. If you apply this metaphor to the songs it makes sense in a way. Each song to me applies to a different area to the universe eg eg. This may be my schiztophrenia talking. But it makes sense. The only real question is we dont know which area to apply this metaphor to. The world , or a girl. They could both have the same meaning to him , a girl being his world and he dosnt know how he effects her.

    An example of this metaphor is "beware" which could be refering to tears of some sorts , "do you like the way the water tastes" could be , do you like the way your tears taste of some sorts. Im not sure. Its best not to think into these things too much.

    General Comment"Two different sides
    The same kind of thread
    Different needle
    The world, hey! hey! hey!"

    This line says it all, I think this song is about the Muslum and Jewish religions fighting eachother about who is right philisophicaly, when they are working to the same end. "The same kind of thread" being for the same cause, and "Different needle" being the difference in the belief systems.

    "It's rapture
    But it's a different style"

    Both believe in a rapture, but in different ways.

    "You twist everything else around"
    The two sides twist the words of their holy book as an excuse to fight eachother when in reality it is meant for there to be peace.

    Mind you im not saying its anti-religious, Chino is smarter than that, I think he sees past that to the real problem, people. Its about people using religion as a reason to kill eachother, when it should be used to promote peace like it's supposed too.
