Predisposed
Ill Niño Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This is my time
This is my time
And now you'll go back where you came from

Ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-right
Now is the time to accept I'm right (was right)
Por ser lo más provocar was wrong (was wrong)
Everything's over, I feel sober
To start my life
That one step took me right there

True intentions are not
Predisposed to our fear
Searching without a cause

Ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-right
I will not stand here and be controlled (inside)
Lo necesito sin tu control (I'm not fine)
Siento en mi vena ninguna pena
Without a fear
I take that one step right there

True intentions are not
Predisposed to our fear
Searching without a cause

Like a game of chess I carved your chest
Don't snap back, pull the trigger into my neck
Bust your move and drop the news
It's a crying shame, I'm feeling all the pain

And you want to slap my face
You'll try to put me in your place
Well I'll step back and then attack
This is my time to get my life back

True intentions are not
Predisposed to our fear
Searching without a cause
Yeah

True intentions are not




Predisposed to our fear (fear)
Searching without a cause

Overall Meaning

The opening lines of "This is my time" indicate a triumphant moment of the singer where they feel a sense of ownership and control over their life. They are not seeking approval from anyone and feel empowered enough to claim this moment as their own. The next line "And now you'll go back where you came from" suggests a separation from someone or something that was previously hindering the singer's growth or progress. The use of the repeated "ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-ri-right" may signify a sense of urgency or determination to communicate these emotions.


The lines "True intentions are not predisposed to our fear, Searching without a cause," highlight the singer's reflection process where they have overcome their fears and are now searching for something meaningful in their life. They refuse to be controlled, either by others or by their own fears. The use of the metaphor "Like a game of chess I carved your chest, Don't snap back, pull the trigger into my neck," indicates a feeling of being in control, and a willingness to take risks and make difficult decisions. The mention of "crying shame" and "feeling all the pain" may suggest a past traumatic experience, which the singer has now overcome.


The last lines "And you want to slap my face, You'll try to put me in your place, Well, I'll step back and then attack, This is my time to get my life back" assert the singer's boundary-setting ability and assertiveness towards someone who is trying to control them. They are willing to step back and assess the situation, yet are not afraid to take action and fight for what truly belongs to them.

Especially like the interlude starting at 2:34
But holy sh*t those are some dark lyrics.
