Thanks Gavin, I need to spend more time fine tuning for sure. When I was recording some of my songs, I'd have a mostly finished but unfinished set of lyrics and melody. Working a lot at the time and would leave my guitar and mic plugged into my recorder. When I had a chance to sneak to the basement I'd give it a shot, an impromptu sort of thing, one take. Make up some things on the spot. The two lines you quoted were one of those situations, that's what came out. A dirge is pretty much a sad lament or grieving funeral song but, in the bible, some prophecies were translated as a dirge in English. I think that's where those lines came from. Kinda like saying if you keep up these reckless rebel ways you aren't long for this earth. But I do agree they need to be changed. I've got more time now and recently got a computer back up running where I had all these stored. As always, I appreciate you taking the time to comment.
Thanks, JPOV and IronKnee, for the positive comments. Still working on changing some lines. Been staring at them too long, I think. Next time I'm in my truck on the way to the grocery store maybe they will come to me. Stuck for now.
