I know you're not a liar
And I know you could set fire
This day
Go ahead and make me look away
Strike me down
I am calling your lightning
Down from your dark hiding place
Go ahead and show me
Your face

Rain down
And destroy me
Rain...

    1 Kings 18
    Elijah challenges the prophets of Baal. God sends lightning to consume the sacrifice as proof that he is God, after Baal's prophets fail to get their "god" to do the same. After this the drought ends.

    Seems pretty logical to me.

    Y'all talking about God, while it's actually Blurryface or Nico he's talking to, demanding him to prove that he can really destroy Tyler.

    I believe that Implicit Demand for Proof means that Tyler has been dealing with depression and that since God was not helping him through it he almost lost faith in God. He still believes in God thought because he is literally speaking towards God in the song as if he was right here, which he most likely thinks. What I mean by this is that God is all around us, and with that thought in mind he wanted to speak to the Lord knowing that if he is everywhere and listening to everyone that might cause The Lord to respond. He has almost lost faith in God though because within the song he begs God to prove that he exists, meaning he wants to question his religion while still holding on to his faith.

    Honestly, the song title means like life has no purpose, I think the song lyrics support that

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think when he says I know you can set fire this day, He's talking about God and how Tyler doesn't necessarily mean actual fire, he could be saying like god, flooded the earth, or how he set a plague with the Egyptians. When he says go ahead and make me look away, maybe he's saying make him another non-believer because he can't find proof of God's existence. When he says from your dark hiding place he could be saying like maybe the bible, because everyone knows about God through the Bible, and The bible is usually left in a dark room, within the pages darker because there is no physical light upon it. When he says I mean no disrespect I am simply very perplex by your ways, he could be saying That he still does have faith In God, but doesn't maybe agree with what he says or does, and then he says why won't you let us use your name, which in the Bible God says your not allowed to use his name. But Tyler's songs can be seen and interpreted in any way so maybe there is no right answer, because what's implicit demand for proof to you, isn't implicit demand for proof to me, goodbye frens :) |-/

    He's saying that "rain down and destroy me" really means your words hurt and can easily destroy. He "knows your not a liar." You will tell him the truth even if it hurts

    I think it's about him questioning god and his existence. IDK just a thought.

    I know you're not a liar
    And I know you could set fire
    This day
    (Maybe his demons are threatening him to end it)
    Go ahead and make me look away
    (Make him refuse other problems and stick to thinking on his demons)
    Strike me down
    I am calling your lightning
    Down from your dark hiding place
    Go ahead and show me
    Your face
    (He is asking his demon to take him, he wants to identify what this demon is, risking himself)

    Rain down
    And destroy me
    Rain down
    And destroy me
    Rain down
    (Letting his demon take him)

    I mean no disrespect
    I am simply very perplexed by your ways
    Why won't you let us use your name?
    (He is wondering why his demon is so hidden and he can't uncover it)

    Rain down
    And destroy me
    Rain down
    And destroy me
    Rain down
    And destroy me
    Rain down
    And destroy me

    Rain

    Down

    Rain

    Down

    Down
