"Right Thru Me" as written by Onika Tanya Maraj, Joe Satriani and Andrew Evan Thielk....
You see right through me.
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you

You let me win,
You let me ride
You let me rock
You let me slide
And when they lookin'
You let me hide.
Defend my honor
Protect my pride.
The good advice
I always hated
But looking back
It made me greater.
You always told me
Forget the haters
Just get my money,
Just get my weight up.
Know when I'm lying,
Know when I'm crying
It's like you got it
Down to a science
Why am I trying
No you ain't buying,
I tried to fight it
Back with defiance.
You make me laugh
You make me hoarse
From yelling at you
And getting at you
Picking up dishes
Throwing them at you.
Why are you speaking
When no one asked you.

You see right through me.
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you

You see right through me.
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you

What are we doing,
Could you see through me?
Cause you say Nicki
And I say who me?
And you say no you
And I say screw you.
Then you start dressing
And you start leaving
And I start crying
And I start screaming
The heavy breathing
But whats the reason.
Always get the reaction you wanted
I'm actually fronting
I'm askin' you something
Yo, answer this question,
Class is in session,
Tired of letting
Passive aggression
Control my mind,
Capture my soul
OK your right
Just let it go.
OK you got it,
Its in the can.
Before I played it
You knew my hand.
You could turn a free throw into a goal.
Nigga got the peep hole to my soul.

You see right through me.
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you

You see right through me.
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you

Stop,
Stop,
Would you just stop looking through me
Cause I just cant take it.
No I cant take it.

You see right through me.
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you do that shit
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you
How do you

You see right through me.
(you see right through me baby)
You see right through me
You see right through me

    I agree with Jarry but want to add a few things. Its obvious this guy knows everything about her including all of her imperfections and mood swings. Even in Nicki's moments of anger, temper tantrums (ex: throwing dishes) or breakdowns, he can see through it all. In this song Nicki sounds a wee bit frustrated by this, but ultimately shes saying she appreciates how well he know her.
    Speaking from a girls standpoint, I will agree, this is freaking maddening! While it may be rare and special to find someone who is so in tune to you, it really makes you vulnerable and exposed to your partner. In relationships like this, you will never have 'control' in arguments or tantrums. But imho, couples who are truly in love wouldn't want or need to have the power of manipulation on their partner. I can see how having a relationship like this would make One hesitant, especially when you've always used these 'antics' as means of personal protection and security. I suppose when Love is true you can see through all the BS and dont need these games.
    It seems that Nicki at first 'tried to fight it, back with defiance,' (her defense mechanism, possibly) but he ended up 'captur[ing] her soul.' And even though she doesn't have the upper-hand she is grateful for him, and that 'looking back it made me greater.' Makes a boat-load of sense to me! ;)

    My Interpretationmmm i think i got the overall message i gess lol In the first verse it sounds like Nicki's boyfrend puts up with all her shit nd still sticks around for her nd like he knos her extremely well.Then the second verse tells about how she has passive aggressive issues then he's bout to leave but then she begs for him to stay. Basically the title says it all, he can see right through her. Meaning tht he has her all figured out exactly

    General Commentthe last part of the last verse is actually:

    Then You Start Dressing
    And You Start Leaving
    And I Start Crying
    And I Start Screaming
    The Heavy Breathing
    But Whats The Reason.
    Always Get The Reaction You Wanted
    Im Actually Fronting
    Im Askin You Somthing
    Yo Answer This Question,
    Class Is In Session,
    Tired Of Letting
    Passive Aggression
    Control My Mind,
    Capture My Soul
    Ok Your Right
    Just Let It Go.
    Ok You Got It,
    Its In The Can.
    Before I Played It
    You Knew My Hand.
    You Could Turn A Free Throw Into A Goal.
    Nigga Got The Peep Hole To My Soul.

    My InterpretationI agree with what everyone has said.
    But also, I think this song is also referring to that he see's "right through her" in the sense that he forgets about her and is always with other girls. So she feels like nothing. So she reacts to him with anger and he thinks she's being dramatic. In her film clip, she says to her boyfriend "Dont talk to her anymore" ...
