Another rough demo. I couldn't tinker with it too much, as I needed the a tempo intro, which means I couldn't get it "on grid", which means I couldn't do much editing or cutting/pasting. There's a few spots that are sticking for me, and I've made a couple edits since recording this last night, but I'd like some feedback on how it's working so far.
I've been paging through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelations
Trying to find the easy way to get that sweet salvation
I had all but given up on saving my immortal soul
But I think I might have found a loophole.
I enjoy the company of girls with reputations
Spending evenings chasing down the bottom of a glass
Now I know ths puts me on the path to hellfire and damnation
But I've got a plan to clear my name before I pass
(Deathbed conversion) as I'm approaching death
(Deathbed conversion) I'll repent with my last breath
(Deathbed conversion) I'll grab onto my savior's hand
and I won't get go until he drags me to the promised land.
There is no wickedness so great that it can't be forgiven
And Jesus loves to hear the prayers of a regretful man
So get your money's worth now, do some living while you're living
And you can dodge the Devil, if you just stick to the plan
Why live a life of earthly virtue and eschew the pleasures here,
wake up early every Sunday when you hear the steeple bell
When you can stay out every Saturday, drink whiskey, wine, and beer,
And make it to the pearly gates with a story to tell?
