Something about my timing is off, specifically in my bends. It must be a habit I picked up recently.

Could anyone tell me exactly how I am off and what I can do to change it to make it sound correct? I'm going to start using a metronome and maybe that will help me kick it.

Is the sound clip meant to be 2 seconds? i didn't hear any bends.
But yes, practicing properly to a metronome should improve your timing and sense of rhythm.

You've answered your own question..
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.
