"Trigger Inside" as written by and Andrew Cairns....
Here comes a girl with perfect teeth
I bet she won't be smiling at me
I know how jeffry dahmer feels
(Lonely, lonely)

I was awkward as a child blueprint
For my wretched life
Confidence I've been denied
(Lonely, lonely)

Something in my head, it won't switch off when I'm alone
I got a trigger inside, I got a trigger inside
I got a trigger inside, I get the feeling I've been cheated
I got a trigger inside, I got a trigger inside
I got a trigger inside, I get the feeling I've been cheated

My hands are shaking, my head's a mess
Trying to wring some words from my breath
I die before you, you're not impressed
(Lonely, lonely)

I look uglier when I cry
Want to punch that look from your life
One in the eye for the beautiful people
(Lonely, lonely)

Something in my head, it won't switch off when I'm alone
I got a trigger inside, I got a trigger inside
I got a trigger inside, I get the feeling I've been cheated
I got a trigger inside, I got a trigger inside
I got a trigger inside, I get the feeling I've been cheated

I got a trigger inside, I got a trigger inside
I got a trigger inside, I get the feeling I've been cheated
I got a trigger inside, I got a trigger inside
I got a trigger inside, I get the feeling I've been cheated
Cheated, cheated, cheated

    General CommentThis song is fruckin brilliant, needs way more comments. I guess it's about therapy bullshit and the fact that no matter now much you do there'll still be something that sets you off because you're permanently fucked.

    General CommentI just love "Troublegum", it's terryfing and beautilul mix of desperation, frustration and a little faith in a better tomorrow. Every f******g track on this album is a goddamn masterpiece. I love "Knives", "Turn", "Screamager", and other songs from this LP (expect 2 last ones). I take this album now exactly like in the 90' (maybe i'm immature - i don't give a flying f.). "Trigger Inside" is about many things, Enyone who had ever felt totally alone, rejected, who had his/her mind f*****p entirely and who had problems with agression will fully understand the meaning of this song. There's polish band, Coma, which singer - Piotr Rogucki sometimes is trying to put a shoes of "everyman". Their lyrics are cut in the way that everyone should feel that every song is about themselves. Coma entered the fight, but they lost. The real winner is Therapy? (and maybe some other bands).
