This one is specifically written for sync. This version has an explicit tag line, and we have a version without the explicit tag line as well for cleaner networks. Vocals are by Matt Dame.

https://soundcloud.com/marilyn-oakley/bond-of-brotherhood-explicit

This is the clean version, for anyone who may be offended by the explicit tag line https://soundcloud.com/marilyn-oakley/bond-of-brotherhood

BOND OF BROTHERHOOD [explicit]

Spoken:
The blood of the tribe is thicker
than the water of the womb

In the moment, right or wrong
Brother, I got your back
We will rise and we will fall
Ride hard, live fast

Spoken:
Respect is earned, loyalty returned

CHORUS
Bond of Brotherhood
Itís a code, itís a creed
It ainít about the blood
but those willing to bleed
Brothers not of kin
but brothers in the wind
Life or death, itís understood
the Bond of Brotherhood

Post-Chorus
No one can separate us
the Bond of Brotherhood
Donít matter who hate us
the Bond of Brotherhood

And in your darkest hour
when the demons come
Call on me brother
Iím your bullet, youíre my gun

Spoken:
Never mistake my kindness for weakness

CHORUS

Post-Chorus

Bridge
No lead, no shell
No devil in hell will break us
Stay low, go fast
Kill first, die last

CHORUS

Final Tag
Betray my trust, Iíll be your fucking reaper
(Clean tag - Betray my trust, I'll be your reaper)

Yeah', the F word seemed a little forced and gratuitous lol smile

I'll give you credit for intent...

However, blood is always thicker than water and soldiers don't play with guns...

There are songs out there that have more cuss words than just my little ol' one LOL. I watch a lot of Netflix movies and have heard a few. lol
I wanted to leave this open to brotherhoods not just soldiers but also outlaw biker gangs.
Before I wrote this one, I did research as far as marines, soldiers, outlaw bikers, etc. in Brotherhoods

Thus the tag line "Betray my trust, Iíll be your fucking reaper" is more biker related perhaps. Personally I don't feel it's forced, as it is meant to sound I mean business. Cause betrayal is a bitch when it comes to certain situations. And as for the blood, yeah, it may be thicker, but I can across this saying

"The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb" - meaning that bonds forged through adversity (namely, war) are stronger than familial bonds. So I went with that just changed covenant to tribe.

Biker clubs refer to themselves as tribes too. And it's all about loyalty moreover blood.

Thanks for the listen and comments.
-----------------------

IDK if you've ever heard the song by Trey Lewis, Dicked In Dallas, but I think that one's in poor taste, even tho it got millions of listens, and got pretty popular.

Well... now I'm really confused lol

I'll bow out with this;
I sincerely hope you don't think outlaw biker gangs and the USMC can possibly have anything at all in common wink

No I don't think they have anything in common, I wanted a song that could be used for different opps, whether the brotherhood are marines or are bikers. I didn't want to sandwich this in just to one type of brotherhood. Then it would be very limited to where it could get pitched. It's a song about brotherhood, it's not about marines and it's not about outlaw bikers. It's a theme song ... to fit brotherhoods of all kinds. Hope that helps. lol

ps... and maybe one day someone could write a movie/show about modern day cowboys or western type outlaws, I wanted a theme song that could possible even describe this type of brotherhood.

I agree with Tony when it comes to the military. It would be an awkward fit in most movies of that kind because of the snarling tone. However, as I was listening, I was thinking along the lines of what I then read in your reply to Tony. This is more suited to a biker gang kind of movie, and I get what you are saying about writing something that fits with a mood or attitude, rather than anything more specific, broadening the possibilities for sync. It's not the kind of thing I would listen to just as a song, but that's not the point, and I can absolutely hear it as part of a movie soundtrack. Good luck with it.

Thank you Gavin. Some ppl associate the song w/ Marines and some w/ outlaw bikers.

Hello Marilyn--

You bare right in general about BROTHERHOOD--But when the completed song has a TO)NE (angry, listful, happy or some other) THE SONG IS THEN PUT IN A BRACKET and labeled! The music and vocal often do that BRACKETTING!

In Scouting, I was in the ORDER OF THE ARROW, and a level of accomplishment was Called BROTHERHOOD!

There are many meanings associated with BROTHERHOOD--songs to make money, are pitched with a specific TONE in mind!

Write on!

Mackie

Powerful song..............perhaps a bit overpowering. I get the bond of a band of brothers, but I think there is a difference between the bonds that Marines make in the fields, and those of biker gangs in the streets.
Maybe delve into what it is that creates those bonds.
...........Very thought provoking.
Good stuff!!!

It's catchy and well produced.
I can hear this in a biker movie grin
Maybe it's just me but I found the vocals a bit loud - and the guitars could come up a bit when he's not singing.
I would leave out the F-bomb - not that I'm a prude, but usually foul language is in the movie's dialog rather than its songs IMO.
Or maybe "I'll be your freakin' reaper"

Enjoyed the listen - good luck placing it.
Paul
