"Back with a Vengence" as written by Bradley Fafara, John Boecklin, Jeffrey Kendrick, Jonathan Miller and Michael Spreitzer....
From counted out to feared, some say
That I'm back with a vengeance, I never left
I smell your fear, cause I'm back with a vengeance

Bruised tattered and torn, if it's punishing
Overtime evens the score

Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!...

One foot in Hell, up on the highway
Now I'm back with a vengeance, no matter what I've said
The vendetta's not dead, I'm back with a vengeance

Bruised tattered and torn, if it's punishing
Overtime evens the score

Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!...
No! The last of me! No! The last of me!
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!

I've been waiting all this time, because time is on my side
Not in the future -- time is now
Because time is on my side...On my side!

Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me.
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!...

No! The last of me
No! Don't you ever think!
I've got some news for you!
No! The last of me
No! Don't you ever think!
No! You've seen the last of me

    General CommentI think the song is about DevilDriver. With their first album they weren't very respected, with Dez refusing to use his fame from coal chamber to propel DevilDriver forward. DevilDriver got to where they were from almost constant touring and musical development. But after last kind words they were seen to be at the top of their game and most people thought they couldn't get any better. This song is basically a big fuck you to all the people that thought they couldn't get any better and to say that "hey, we got here from years of hard work and labor. we deserve what we have."

    But then again... i could be wrong.
