She sings in the song,
“Go figure, you were the trigger, you brought me to an obstructed view. When you knew the picture was bigger. Who am I kiddin’? Knew from the beginning you’d ruin everything, you do it every time. You are my enemy, you are no friend of mind, muhf***er.”
She went on to answer any questions of whether she’s bitter before she switched gears.
“You muf***in’ right, you muf***in” right, I’m bitter. You muf***in” right, I’m triggered. You muf***in” right, I…Wanna f*** you right now. I just turned the lights out now. And you know when the sun go down. That’s when it would all go down. Been a minute, been a while. Ain’t let nobody hit it since you hit it.You know you always know what to do wit’ it. But ain’t no me and you without you in it. Damn, I’m ’bout to burn this b*** down. I think I need to lie down. ‘Cause I’m not tryna wild out now, But right now…”
Before going back to the chorus, she added,
“Don’t know what I’m capable of. Might f*** around and go crazy on cuz. Might f*** around, have to pay me in blood. This ain’t the way that you want it. Might catch a case in this b****. Don’t let me catch you face-to-face in this b****. Tryin’ my hardest not to disrespect you. After what you did, man, what you expected? You muhf***er.”
She then went all in and said,
“Tryna let the time fly (Yeah). Tryna let the time go by. Tryna let the time heal all. Tryna let the time kill all of our memories. All you meant to me. All that history. All that’s history. I’ll calm down eventually. Fall back eventually, please. Call me back eventually. Fall back into me, yeah. Maybe I’m overreacting. Baby, I don’t know what happened. You know all of my bad habits. You know it’s hard for me to control that s***, man Cause when I get mad, I get big mad. Should have never did that, get back. ‘Bout to feel the wrath of a menace. In my bag, in my feelings, I’m a bad lil’ b***, and uh…”
Aiko ended the song with,
“I’m triggered, when I see your face. Triggered, when I hear your name. Triggered, I am not okay. You need to stay out my way. I’m triggered, when I see your face. Triggered, when I hear your name. Triggered, I am not okay (Yeah). You need to stay out of my way. You need to stay out of my way (Yeah). You need to stay out of my way, yeah
