What do you think about this song?

A man and wife asleep in bed she hears a noise
And turns her head he's gone
I wish we'd all been ready

Two men walking up a hill one disappears and
One's left standing still
I wish we'd all been ready

There's no time to change your mind
The Son has come and you've been left behind

Life was filled with guns and war
And everyone got trampled on the floor
I wish we'd all been ready

Children died the days grew cold
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish we'd all been ready

There's no time to change your mind
How could you have been so blind

The father spoke the demons died
The Son has come and you've been left behind.

  • Yes, this is a song about the Rapture and about those who have been left behind.

  • I'm sorry, it's hard to keep the snark in check when there's been 3 questions a day for the last 2 weeks on the same stupid "Doomsday" topic. Birds falling from the sky-Oh noe's it's a sign RFID chips-OH Noes it's a sign 6 inches of snow more than last year-oh noes it's a sign DADT is repealed- Oh noes it's a sign Denver airport has "creepy" art- Oh noes a sign. People don't think Jesus was a white dude with blue eyes- The signs Oh noes. It's the end the end I tell you- what a world what a world

  • What a creepy and depressing song. They really had children singing this at summer camp? Ewww.


    My thoughts exactly.

  • i agree with bandgeek..i have found no interpretable scripture that supports anyone being 'left behind'..therefore, i do not ascribe to the idea of a 'rapture' taking place.

  • um... I was taught that innocent children went to Heaven and this is what I truly believe so I find the song depressing and somewhat inaccurate based on my faith.

  • I think someone is clearly obsessed and paranoid.


    Oh noes, the world is ending, but rather than spend it with my family, let me post about it online so those who don't believe in the rapture can make fun of me. I'll get justification in the end when it happens and they're left behind.....

  • I used to sing this one quite often when I was in the Nazarene church. It's a load, just like all the other songs I used to sing in the church. A big fat LOAD!

  • it's "creepy" and "scary" for a reason...
    people who believe this stuff REALLY REALLY BELIEVE this stuff, and they want to save everyone

    or they need to REALLY REALLY be convinced, and fear is a great way to keep people convinced
