Implicit Demand for Proof is a song recorded for the eponymous debut album, Twenty One Pilots. It features as the first track on the album. The album is unavailable for physical purchase but the track can be purchased digitally and streamed from various services.

Background

The song begins with a melodic piano piece which introduces the listener to the primary melody of the song.

The track evolves quickly into an angsty piece that details Tyler Joseph’s struggle with his religious doubt, a theme the group would continue to explore further throughout their career.

Tyler goes as far as to bait God, or “implicitly demands” proof of His existence. He questions his power and His presence, even if it means God strikes Joseph down in the process for his blasphemy.

Lyrics

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 down
And destroy me
Rain down

I mean no disrespect
I am simply very perplexed
By your ways
Why won't you let us
Use your name?

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
