Its title is a play on words, where “Armageddon It” sounds like “I’m a-gettin” it” (a euphemism for having sex). In it, this guy is telling a girl she knows having sex will make their relationship solidify, but she’s just a tease and won’t ‘pull his trigger’ (another euphemism).
This appears to be a reference to sex (which is what the whole song is about by the way). Often rock songs will use the term ‘gun’ as a metaphor for the penis. ‘Itchy trigger finger’ is a slang term that means someone really wants to shoot a gun – so in this case, the girl chasing him wants to ‘make his gun go off’. The following line ‘the best is yet to come’ is another reference to sex (come meaning orgasm).
