Blood is thicker than water — the modern interpretation is a misinterpretation. the full proverb is "blood of the covenant is thicker than water of the womb", which implies the complete opposite.

"Blood is thicker than water" in lyrics

The angel of death in the skin
The monkeys just got out of the zoo
Your corpse behind a few blocks
The blood is thicker than water
Armed like in the Clos era
The monkeys just got out of the zoo

Kaaris - Zoo

we throw them in a cell and give them the death penalty
There exists he who tramples and he who helps the human being
There exists a good friend as loyal as a brother
Blood is thicker than water, but measure it well
There exists dirty blood, take heed of Cain & Abel

Daddy Yankee - Corazones

And a love-triangle drama that was started
Even though I know she digs you a little more,
we were brothers, it was "bros before hoes"
You know they say blood is thicker than water
They should sew our hand when we promise each other
To never betray, to roll side-by-side

Danny Saucedo - Die For You

It's time, new roads, travelling in a whole world.
To home again, us have brought them, because blood is thicker than water.
Returns to mind the time when we with you, about five years ago.
Being together, on this beach here, coincidentally found.

Blood is thicker than water they say
But I’ve tried to wash my blood away
Funny how those scars don’t leave a trace

Oh si le ciel te tombe dessus, pour toi,
Il n'y a rien dans ce monde que je ne ferais.
