Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Look Before You Reap

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


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.

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.


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.
