"Prove It" as written by and Greg/gurewitz Graffin....
Hit the road in wander mode
Inquire along the way
Savior faire in full despair
While living day to day
My heart is not a cold cauldron of proof
I don't ever need to prove myself to you
No!

Looking back I'm off the tracks
More times than I recognize
Mistakes are another opportunity to refine
My heart is not a cold cauldron of proof
I don't ever need to prove myself to you

There's no such thing as hell
But you can make it if you try
There might come a day
When emotion can be quantified
But as of now there's no proof necessary
No proof necessary
No proof necessary
No proof necessary
It's only in your mind

    General CommentThis song is an anthem for all who have been degraded for not having proof of no diety.

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs off their new cd..i really like "There's no such thing as hell
    But you can make it if you try
    There might come a day
    When emotion can be quantified
    But as of now there's no proof necessary"

    General CommentThose lines about there being no such thing as hell are my favorite lines of the song as well. Bad Religion is a truly great band.

    General CommentI think it is about people who think punks are stupid and are just causing trouble, and we don't have to prove ourselves to them.

    General CommentI think the "there's no such thing as hell, but you can make it if you try" part is referring to the pessimism in religion. People don't have to believe in Hell and Satan and evil, but for some reason they do.

    General Commentthe no such thing as hell part hints at the religious right who are making the world more like hell

    so, hell doesn't exist(because bad religion are atheists) but you can make it if you try (because if earth is turned into a living hell by religious nuts, there will then be a hell)

    General Commentyea reading it over i think it pertains to religion

    and the desperation for validating it... and its futile and theres no need

    especially to the athiest..

    the cold couldren of proof... I think is a metaphor for some peoples religious beliefs and how he's saying
    thats not what his heart is..

    the song pertains to other things as well but i think that might be what he's trying to say..
