I did some wrongs I wouldn't dare to right
And wrote some songs I wouldn't dare recite
But I am willing to share tonight
In the city that is as unfair as life
Malik Yusef has done many bad things in his life, but holds no regrets, as he doesn’t want to make those wrongs right. He has also written songs that he wouldn’t normally share. Since he’s in Sin City, though, he feels more comfortable with sharing these stories since he’s surrounded by others who have flawed.
“Dare to right” could also be heard as “dare to write,” i.e. this song doesn’t even include everything Malik has done; some of it is too awful to even write down. And even what he was willing to write down he isn’t necessarily willing to bring before an audience.
