LYRICS:
It's close to midnight, you're walking home alone on Halloween
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that causes you to scream
You start to freeze–not from the scary clown or creepy killer
It's culturally appropriating right before your eyes
You're paralyzed!

Cuz this is Trigger
Trigger Night
And no one's there to save you from a joke that you don't like
Cuz this is Trigger
Trigger Night
You're frightened by the sighting of a bigger trigger tonight

You try forgetting but you just can't color all the pain away
You wish you'd acted like Ben Affleck and looked the other way
Apart you see the most offensive leader in creation
You start to scream, "You dressed up as a really racist guy!"
"Apologize!"

Cuz this is Trigger
Trigger Night
Their skin ain't brown enough so your pants turn that shade tonight
Cuz this is Trigger
Trigger Night
You're pining for the sighting of a bigger trigger tonight
You're gonna trigger tonight.

Non-Chileans eating bass
White people in a yoga class
You stir and stew and boil so hot
it's as if you were in a melting pot…

And whomsoever you have found
appropriating you will hound
As you celebrate this holiday
(which is Irish, by the way)

And the more your outraged tweets are spread
The more the walls are turning red
Perhaps it is about race, hence
One to be the first to take offense

For when you spy what you don't like
your body starts to shiver
for no meek mortal can resist the tweeting of a trigger.
