about

Described as a mix between Imogen Heap ("Hide and Seek"), Sia ("Titanium"), and MIKA ("Origin of Love"), #RAPTURE explores the intense meeting of two lovers on the last night of the world-one seeks refuge from judgement, and the other seeks emotional and physical fulfillment.

Michael Graye, a native of New Mexico and current resident of Manhattan, reached out to his social networks in order to complete the track, utilizing vocal talents of friends, family, and acquaintances alike, whom were asked to recite and record the following phrase and send it to him for the background narrative:

"a man can be hopeful; today is the last day of living. The rapture enfolds me, it holds me, it knows me"

Track Name: Rapture
"a man can be hopeful; today is the last day of living.
The rapture enfolds me, it holds me, it knows me.."

I'm hoping you can bring my fever down
Keep doing what you're doing to me
You, make me a believer now
God I want you infinitely

I wanna know what it's like
Inside your mind
And when it's time to go
I hope I'm not left behind
I hope I'm not left behind

The ground is shaking
So don't go breaking
Your attention on me
The bells are ringing
The angels singing
They're trying to stop my heartbeat

What are you waiting for?
My heart is on the floor!
Need you to let me in
The world is gonna end

Refrain:
You know I want you, baby come on
Want the rapture of your love
You know I need you, baby come on
Need the rapture of your love
We're gonna burn and I don't care
Come on take me higher
Get me through the fire
Baby with the rapture of your love

I've got ghosts on my pillow
Please make them go away
I see the devil's at my window
Ask him what he wants from me
Will he take me?
Will he give me new misery? Misery
Baby now's the time
I put it on the line
Reaching for the divine
And I've seen all the signs
Need you to blow my mind

Refrain

Wash over
This is your time this is your time
And then
The world can end

You run from judgment my love
I can't change what I feel or take it back
I say we are free
But it feels like we're under attack
We are all looking for that one love has no bounds
Doesn't make a difference when you're caught up in the current
You can drift or fight or drown

Fear is the poison I've chosen
Sober me with a different drug habit
Spin my soul up into your pattern
Baby quick as the world cracks
Fade to blue, then red then black
Then rapture

Refrain

"it knows me.."
Track Name: Rapture (Extended)
Speak.
Say what I want you to say.
I think we're finally at the end, and I've endured
Shall I be saved?
Shall I be saved?

"a man can be hopeful; today is the last day of living.
The rapture enfolds me, it holds me, it knows me.."

I'm hoping you can bring my fever down
Keep doing what you're doing to me
You, make me a believer now
God I want you infinitely

I wanna know what it's like
Inside your mind
And when it's time to go
I hope I'm not left behind
I hope I'm not left behind

The ground is shaking
So don't go breaking
Your attention on me
The bells are ringing
The angels singing
They're trying to stop my heartbeat

What are you waiting for?
My heart is on the floor!
Need you to let me in
The world is gonna end

Refrain:
You know I want you, baby come on
Want the rapture of your love
You know I need you, baby come on
Need the rapture of your love
We're gonna burn and I don't care
Come on take me higher
Get me through the fire
Baby with the rapture of your love

I've got ghosts on my pillow
Please make them go away
I see the devil's at my window
Ask him what he wants from me
Will he take me?
Will he give me new misery? Misery
Baby now's the time
I put it on the line
Reaching for the divine
And I've seen all the signs
Need you to blow my mind

Refrain

Wash over
This is your time this is your time
And then
The world can end

You run from judgment my love
I can't change what I feel or take it back
I say we are free
But it feels like we're under attack
We are all looking for that one love has no bounds
Doesn't make a difference when you're caught up in the current
You can drift or fight or drown

Fear is the poison I've chosen
Sober me with a different drug habit
Spin my soul up into your pattern
Baby quick as the world cracks
Fade to blue, then red then black
