"I'm DTB for life, no, I can't trust my b*****s,
I can't even trust my girl 'cause I'm a f****d up n****, yeah
And if you say you trust me, girl, you lied
'Cause I can't even trust myself, I don't know why you waste time in your feelings, yeah"

DTB is used on a lot of breakup TikToks, including people who think their exes have cheated or have wronged them in some way.

The song inspired hashtags like #DTB, #DTB4L, and #DTB4Life.
