"Fraternity" as written by Taylor Hawkins, David Eric Grohl and Nate Mendel....
I'll never be fraternity
Another disease fraternity
Never believe fraternity
Just armies bored in life

I'll never be fraternity
I'll never need that brand of me
Fading the pace behind your eyes
Free to be straight for shape and size
Waiting awake and watch you rise
Go on keep feeding

Swearing by the
Swearing father
Swearing father

I'll never be fraternity
Another disease fraternity
Never believe fraternity
Just armies bored in life

I don't believe fraternities
See the disease fraternities
Wait of the hate behind your eyes
Free to be straight for shape and size
Waiting awake and watch your rise
Go on keep feeding

Swearing by them
Swearing father
Swearing father

I'll never be fraternity
Another disease fraternity
Never believe fraternity
Just armies bored in life

Hand me down

I'll never be fraternity
Another disease fraternity
Never believe fraternity
Just armies bored in life

Bored in life
Bored in life

    General Commentit is about being different to everybody else because of not wanting to be in a fraternity

    General CommentOne of my favourite songs on the album for it's simplicity and methodical approach.
    The lyrics, personally, isn't about your College Frats. Using the words 'armies bored in life' to me, is more about so called 'secret societies' ie. Masons and such. I'm of the opinion that these organisations may exist, probably exist, but who really gives a f--k? Countless book written about them, there's a target audience just for conspiracies these days... as far as I'm concerned, can anyone really be stuffed going to all this effort to control the world via puppet strings, hiding in Ivory Towers? I don't think so, believe what you want.

    Wait a sec, isn't this SongRants.com? Oops... ;)

    General CommentThey do exist, in fact my grandfather was a mason... but I don't think it's specifically about that... I think it's about not wanting to be like everybody else...something like that :)

    General CommentI don't think this is on any album. Any one know if it's a b-side to a single?

    General Commenti think the line is actually 'born in line' instead of bored with life. the other line i find interesting is 'swearing by the swearing father'

    these two lines to me show somewhat of a family link in a fraternity. perhaps these people are forced into spots that they don't want to be in by expectation of the family?

    General CommentThis song is on the Australian version of There Is Nothing Left To Lose right at the end of the album. It's a great song

    General CommentThis is such an anthem! I like to think it's about a desire not to conform. I love it anyway.
