Look Before You Reap

This song was created for Game of Bands round 114 : "Theme to a made-up James Bond film"

Lyrics:

Verse 1:
You’ve got a license
To get the job done.
But how can you know the truth?
When everyone has a gun.

Search in every corner.
Look behind every door.
Someone’s out to get you.
That’s all we know for sure.

Chorus:
Look before you reap.
Who’s a friend and who’s a foe?
Is he dead or just asleep?
Sweet Chariot swing low.

Look before you reap.
What’s in that shadow there?
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Life or death, it’s just a dare.

So look before you reap.

Verse 2:
Does that woman love you,
Or want to see you dead?
Will she hug you to her chest,
Or put a bullet in your head?

Whoever can you trust,
When the mission’s on the line?
The answer can be found,
You just have to read the sign.

Chorus:

Bridge:
Every day is life or death.
Every moment, hold your breath.
Is that a child with a knife?
Looking to steal your life?
Is there safety to be found?
Or just jumping at every sound?
You must decide who dies,
And end this wicked game of lies.
[Exit]
