"The Rapture Ball" is a song by Poppy from her album "Am I A Girl?". It is the tenth track on the album.

Background

Poppy confirmed the song's title in an interview with C89.5 Radio.[1] She later tweeted a line of lyrics from the song on October 1st, 2018.

Theme

"The Rapture Ball" is about Poppy attending her first party, which consists of people of high social status.

As the song's title suggests, it is inspired by the Rapture, a purported end time event when all Christian believers living and dead will rise into Heaven and join Christ.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Chauffeur, take me dancing
Where everyone is groovy
Make it like a movie, uh, oh
Champagne, say my name
All the waiters in tuxedos serving pretty people

[Pre-Chorus]
Well, I never got to go to prom
Never wore the pink chiffon
Take me to the rapture ball where everyone is beautiful

[Chorus]
This is the best bang since the big one
Everybody's in love, dancing with their eyes shut
This is the best bang since the big one
Touch me with your white glove
Cover me in gold dust

[Post-Chorus]
The best bang since the big one
The best bang since the big one
The best bang since the big one

[Verse 2]
Ball gown, platinum crown
Lining all the limousines up
Love to cause a scene, yup, uh, oh
Gold chains, diamond rings
Look at all the glitterati
I must be someone important now

[Pre-Chorus]
Never got to go to prom
Never wore the pink chiffon
Take me to the rapture ball where everyone is beautiful

[Chorus]
This is the best bang since the big one
Everybody's in love, dancing with their eyes shut
This is the best bang since the big one
Touch me with your white glove
Cover me in gold dust

[Post-Chorus]
The best bang since the big one
The best bang since the big one
The best bang since the big one

[Outro]
The best bang since the big one
The best bang since the big one
The best bang since the big one
