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

    My InterpretationKnowing that the band comes from a Christian background, I think this song is the writer making an 'implicit demand for proof' that God exists/is listening/cares/etc. The writer is asking God for a sign that he is there, even if that sign is harmful to the speaker ("make me look away," "strike me down," "go ahead and show me your face," "rain down and destroy me"). The speaker is having trouble comprehending the ways of God and is willing to go to any length to reach understanding.

    General CommentIf it was "Why WOULD you let us use your name", it would make more sense, because God does let us use His name. We use it to get saved, pray, and in authority. I love this song and just yesterday I was listening to this song and singing along, outside, in the rain and thunder, and I chose to shut my mouth. I know God exists, and I'm not about to test him, although I love listening to joseph do it.
