Verse: Why all the questions. For the reason why. I can't talk right now. Keep all my anger inside. Smokes coming out my head. Could be somethin you said. A look you gave me... or its nothing at all.. I just need sometime to think. Sort out my feelins.. if you were just willin.. to give a brotha sometime.. I know its cool to talk.. and work things out. I'm just hot right now.. need some time to calm down.

Chorus: I'm pissed off right now.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me...I'm pissed off right now.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me...I'm pissed off right now..

Verse: Imma peaceful brutha.. taught to love one another.. but I'm not in the mood.. for you to be rude.. I would laugh it off.. on a normal day. but the way that your treatin me.. its not okay.. please look in my eyes.. its up to you.. for you to decide.. where we go from here.. I hate confrontation.. but with no hesitation.. I'll step to you...

Chorus: I'm pissed off right now.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me...I'm pissed off right now.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me...I'm pissed off right now..

Rap: Damn...Damn... yea..yea..yea…..Meet me in the clubline... I need to pass time... let my presents be felt just like the last time…. if you feel it when I pass by this won't be the last time. Any place anytime Imma let my feelings shine. You ain’t no friend of mine look how you got me in this situation I decline… excuse the bad vibe as you can see you caught me at a bad time…road rage no patience drivin through stop signs (I’m pissed off right now…) I’m pissed off right now.. so I’m spendin time in my thoughts right now. Soon as I get a little space and get to keeping my cool.. I get pulled over by somebody I bullied in school.

Chorus and ad libs out: I'm pissed off right now.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me...I'm pissed off right now.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me.. don't talk to me...I'm pissed off right now..
