about

Dead To Rights St Catharines, Ontario

Dead To Rights is the result of a need to start from scratch: musicians that wanted to make the kind of music they wanted to hear. A throwback to the '94 west coast punk sound of Pulley, Good Riddance and Lagwagon, modernized with metal infused leads and timing, dead to rights is the music you always sat around wishing someone still played. ... more

Track Name: Stinks Song
May your bleeding piles torment you
May corns burn your feet
May crabs the size of horse turds
Crawl 'round your ass to eat
And when you're old and dying
Nothing but a syphilis wreck
May you fall through your own asshole
And break your fucking neck
Track Name: SCARS
Is this what they left you with
Tell me how it all works out
Are there any friends left or did they leave at last call
Alone angry and used up did they ever give a fuck
Your feelings of attraction
The motions of a civil action they all carried you
Straight through

Some prick is working the door tonight
Three nights felt like three years
Your attitude and self respect please tell me
Just what the fuck happened
If anything sounds good to you at all
It just sets me up for the fall

Don't get your friends too involved
If there's something to say then say it out loud
I think they've done enough for you
A winning gang of fakes
And it will always be the same and I will always be to blame
Like betting on a horse that dropped dead at the starting gate
Too little too late

Some prick is working the door tonight
Three nights felt like three years
Your attitude and self respect please tell me
Just what the fuck happened
If anything sounds good to you at all
It just sets me up for the fall

"I don't remember what was so fucking special about you."
Track Name: Enough Rope
Give you enough rope I know you'll show me what you can do
Is it enough to hang myself with when you are through
Self deprecating, your toxic nature creeping through
Should I just shut up or is this revelation overdue

You've talked yourself into too many corners,
And tried to fight your way out kicking
You've tried to argue yourself right with all the
Pointless fights that you've been picking

Give you enough time I know you'll show me who you are
Proof of your battles a never ending show of scars
You're fighting shadows, a rabid dog just chasing cars
In isolation, your fragile mind locked behind bars

You've found yourself shit out of options,
Nowhere to go you never learn
Bullshit refusal to change your place in life
i should watch you burn

You've found yourself shit out of options,
Nowhere to go you never learn
Bullshit refusal to change your place in life
i should watch you burn
Track Name: Nice Taste
Progress for the sake of progress, xenophobia and hatred
Those things that make the world go 'round
937 people, turned away and sentenced to death
Before the ship could run aground

When heads are turned, then lives are lost
No lessons leaned, ignore the cost

No payment for the sins committed every day
No recompense made to the ones pushed away

Millions with no food or income, billions spent on building commerce
10 dead for every penny spent
Starving children freezing homeless, donations made to ease your conscience
Ignorance to where the money's spent

When heads are turned, then lives are lost
No lessons leaned, ignore the cost

No payment for the sins committed every day
No recompense made to the ones pushed away
Track Name: Tried and Tested
You always try to point the blame
When things don't turn out your way
That's why it always ends the same
You don't hear a word that I say

I always try to compromise
When we don't see eye to eye
I don't know why
You don't give a fuck what i say

Cause i just don't get it, you're so thick headed
Always ends this way:
I go storming out when you start to scream and shout
That's why, it always ends this way

You always think that you're right
And your way is the only way
That's why we never get it right
You don't give a fuck what I say

Cause i just don't get it, you're so thick headed
Always ends this way:
I go storming out when you start to scream and shout
That's why, it always ends the same

You don't give a fuck what I say
Cause i just don't get it, you're so thick headed
Always ends this way:
I go storming out when you start to scream and shout
That's why, it always ends the same
Track Name: Don't Think I Won't
Don't think I won't cause you never really thought I could
Leave you behind cause I finally learned how much
You've been dragging me down
Not willing to leave it behind, in frozen time
We stay

You think that I'm so beholden to you
i promised you don't think I won't see it through

Don't think you can cause you've never really been inside
Successes measured against supposed failings of
Those around you
That can't find the strength to sever ties, to pull their lives
away

You think that I'm so beholden to you
i promised you don't think i won't see it through
Track Name: Want Me Around
For the first time in my life it's locked down and locked tight
my mind is focused
I can see through the bullshit that I have been handing myself
day after day
For the first time in my life I don't fear the long night
I'm far from hopeless
Can't forget where I came from or ignore how I got here
Regress or deviate

I can't hold on to the shit that's been bringing me down
For the first time that I recall
I want me around

When you sleep with clear conscience it's easy to see things
For what they are
Can let go of my thoughts keep myself on the right track
Keep nothing under guard
Keep them close to my heart like i should from the start
Those things of importance
Can't stop recreating what i knew is fading away
Into the dark

I won't waste time with the shit buried deep underground
For the first time that i recall
I want me around

There's nothing going on
I can honestly say nothing's wrong
And I'm hoping you will always want me around

Giving up is not an option
When letting go of the past
And I know this way of life is gonna last
Track Name: Garson City Limits
Were we ever this alone?, to you it makes sense
Dead weight just holding on, the future becomes past tense
We're trading smoke for steam, while you stoke the fire
All along you believed, the lips of a murderous liar

Every city's got its sinners, and we're not exactly saints
Everybody's got their flaws, and we have no complaints

When you wake up alone, armed with your defense
Remember who was stone, and try not to choke on regrets

Every city's got its sinners, and we're not exactly saints
Everybody's got their flaws, and we have no complaints

Everybody's got their moments, standing out on that ledge
I reached out my hand to guide you
As your dropped off the edge
Track Name: Shanghai Migraine
Don't know where I'm going but I've got somewhere to go
Don't wanna be where I come from and where I am I just don't know

Stood at the edge of hell and watched the world in flames
Been locked in solitary, weeks of pounding wind and driving rain

I just keep movin' on, keep trying to stay alive
Can't eat don't sleep just keep moving
It's been 3 years since I've seen anyone i know
Gotta keep rollin' got a shanghai migraine GO

Can't see the sun rise without burning my eyes
I can't escape the lows, I know I just can't live without the highs

I just keep movin' on, keep trying to stay alive
Can't eat don't sleep just keep moving
I keep on wandering, I'm never coming home
Gotta keep rollin' got a shanghai migraine GO

I just keep movin' on, keep trying to stay alive
Can't eat don't sleep just keep moving
It's been 3 years since I've seen anyone i know

Gotta keep rollin' got a shanghai migraine GO
Track Name: Rykert
Rykert wakes up everyday
And goes to bed the same way every night
Ashtrays stacked up ten times higher
Than the sum of their dreams

When the sun, sets in the west
Prepare yourself for a long night
Dismissal and acceptance
When the sun, sets in the west
Forever clinicizing the struggle

He's a junkie like a working man
With debt enough to feed
The family of his first wife
And the one he never sees

When the sun, sets in the west
Prepare yourself for a long night
If you're feeling 86'd
When the sun, sets in the west
The shadow that you casts changes nothing

There's a fire on the hill
Burning it's way downtown
When it gets to your stereo
I hope your family is found
