"Dead To Rights" as written by Bradley Fafara, John Boecklin, Michael Spreitzer, Jeffrey Kendrick and Jonathan Miller....
Yes, here is what you came for,
I know what I'm here for,
Knocked out right to the floor,
Committed to kill!
Kill what you don't know,
Can't trust, let it go

Say what you mean
Don't ask what's the story!
You'll be knocked out right to the floor.
Committed to kill!
Kill what you don't know,
Can't trust, let it go
The God damned hypocrisy

My story's in yours,
Throw at me what you got,
'Cause I will break free, from all the words that bind me
My story is in yours,
Throw at me what you got,
'Cause I will break free, from all the words that bind me

I fear to be tied
My consciousness; dead to rights,
Fuck suicide,
Living along side you, yeah!

So, get what you came for,
Locked up on the floor,
Get straight at the door,
Get yourself more inventive!

Say what you mean
Don't ask what's the story!
You'll be knocked out right to the floor.
Committed to kill!
Kill what you don't know
Can't trust, let it go the God damned hypocrisy

My story's in yours,
Throw at me what you got,
'Cause I will break free, from all the words that bind me
My story is in yours,
Throw at me what you got,
'Cause I will break free, from all the words that bind me

I fear to be tied
My consciousness; dead to rights,
Fuck suicide,
Living along side you, yeah!

Let me out, let me out!
Let me out to try!
I've got no idea,
I've got dead to rights, yeah!
Dead to rights!

Don't take it too personal
Is just that trouble is coming
Yeah!
You know it could be God damn true!
I got you dead to rights!
I got you dead to rights!
I got you!
I got you dead to rights!
I got you dead to rights!

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite DevilDriver songs. In an interview done before Beast was released. Dez talked about hypocrites, and how you can't wait to call them out on their bullshit and have them "dead to rights". I feel this is loosely an overarching theme of the entire album. These hypocrites and just in general bad people, are Beasts among us. They Hardened, Coldblooded, Make us Sick, never Blame themselves. They're on our Shitlist, and when the time comes, we'll have them Dead to Rights and Bring the Fight to the Floor.

    General CommentTHE ABOVE LYRICS ARE HORRIBLY WRONG.

    Now that I have your attention. I have made several attempts to change these incorrect lyrics. I guess the author never responds to the change requests. I don't know where they came from but there are similar sites with the exact same errors so the source of these is dubious at best. ANYway, the correct lyrics, as referenced in the actual, physical liner notes I have in my hand:

    Is this what you came for
    I know what I'm here for
    Knocked down right to the floor
    Commited to kill!
    What you don't know
    Can't just let it go!
    They webbed me in this

    Take cause you need more
    Don't ask what's in store!
    You'll be knocked down right to the floor
    Committed to kill!
    What you don't know
    Can't just let it go
    With all their hypocrisy!

    My stomach's in knots
    Throw at me what you got
    'Cause I will break free,
    of all the webs that bind me
    My stomach's in knots
    Throw at me what you got
    'Cause I will break free,
    of all the webs that bind me

    I'm fit to be tied
    I've got you dead to rights
    It's like a suicide
    Living alongside you

    So...
    Get what you came for
    Fucked up on the floor
    Kick straight out the door
    Get yourself up
    And bend to no man
    No man
    Who webbed me in this

    Take cause you need more
    Don't ask what's in store!
    You'll be knocked down right to the floor
    Committed to kill!
    What you don't know
    Can't just let it go
    With all their hypocrisy!

    My stomach's in knots
    Throw at me what you got
    'Cause I will break free,
    of all the webs that bind me
    My stomach's in knots
    Throw at me what you got
    'Cause I will break free,
    of all the webs that bind me

    I'm fit to be tied
    I've got you dead to rights
    It's like a suicide
    Living alongside you

    Webbed me up!
    You webbed me up!
    Hung me out to dry
    Had no idea
    I've got you dead to rights
    Dead...to...rights!

    Don't take it so personal
    Its just that trouble is coming

    You know it to be goddamn true!!!

    I've got you dead to rights!
    I've got you dead to rights!
    I've got you dead to rights!
    I've got you...
    I've got you dead to rights!
    I've got you dead to rights!
    I've got you dead to RIGHTS!
