"Always Right" as written by and Brent Knopf....
Don't tell me you couldn't do it
I'm always right when I intuit
God is in the things you love
So don't you punch me with kid gloves
And if you really wanted this
You'd shake your life, you'd sell your kids
And if you really wanted this then you'd admit I'm
Always right
Always right
Always right
Always right

I can see your protestations
As merely manipulations
What you feel is not the issue
You're so polite I want to hit you
And hope that you'll retaliate
And prove my fears legitimate
I'd like to thank you, though it's trite,
For assuring me I'm
Always right
Always right
Always right
Always right

Worst offenders hide their crimes
As you've denied yours countless times
So don't plead for a lighter sentence
Be contrite and show repentance
And demonstrate your love for me
By handing me your diaries
I'll skim them til I'm justified
It says right here I'm
Always right
Always right
Always right
Always right

Say what you like but I'm not listening
My fangs are white and sharp and glistening
You seem like my favorite grade
I even earned this with straight As
As God made Adam in his image
You'll emulate me when I'm finished
I'll give you the gift of light
If you concede I'm
Always right
Always right
Always right
Always right

Always right
Always right
Always right
Always right

    General CommentA few of these words might be wrong, like maybe it's "scan" instead of "skim" in the third verse.

    Anyway, a very entertaining song - the rhyming is really impressive, his composing is (as always) superb, and the vocals even give the song a little more depth than it would otherwise have (in particular, check out the crazed intensity in his voice on "It says right here I'm..." at the end of the third verse).

    So far as I can tell, the song is sung from the perspective of a guy who has a gnawing suspicion that his significant other has been holding back their true feelings. Probably this other person just isn't that into him - they aren't gonna "shake their life" or "sell their kids" by any stretch - but he feels like there's something under the surface ("in their diaries") that's being artificially held back ("kid gloves"). He's also evidently a little full of himself, what with the talk of "giving the gift of light," which almost certainly isn't helping matters any. There's not a whole lot of deep meaning to take away from the song, I guess, cause everyone pretty much already knows not to be this guy, but Knopf just expresses this character so spot-on that it's really hard not to enjoy listening.

    Lyric CorrectionA couple possible corrections:
    ---
    "shape your life" rather than "shave"
    "First offenders" rather than "Worst offenders"
    And, as the previous poster noted, "scan them" instead of "skim them"
