about

Throughout history, there have always been people oppressed and brutalized by those in power, or by those seeking more power. Violence is a side effect of fear, and hatred stems from self-loathing and jealousy. We should all have the freedom to choose the path of our own lives, whether that be spiritually, professionally, personally or otherwise. No one has the right to force their own beliefs upon you. “Don’t Cross Me” demands that freedom to choose.

lyrics

“Don’t Cross Me” ℗ © 2016 The Sweetest Condition
Lyrics by Leslie Irene Benson | Music by Jason Reed Milner

Your justice
has no conscience.
Close your eyes and point.
She’s guilty!
He’s guilty!

No time for
evolution!
Only final
solution.

Guilty!
You’re guilty!

Write our names
into your book,
persecuted for the
way we look.

Guilty!
You’re guilty!

Line us up
and pull the trigger.
Shoot to kill
‘cause it makes you feel bigger.

Guilty!
You’re guilty!

You can do anything you want;
keep the chains tight around free thought.
You can live your righteous lie,
but don’t cross me.
Don’t cross me.

You can do anything you please—
have them worshipping on their knees;
tie the noose tight around their necks,
but don’t cross me.
Don’t cross me!

You reason
with your demon;
play the victim well.

Guilty!
You’re guilty!

You cannot
wash your hands clean
feeding into
the war machine!

You’re guilty!

Don’t cross me. (Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t)
Don’t cross me!

You can do anything you want;
keep the chains tight around free thought.
You can live your righteous lie,
but don’t cross me.
Don’t cross me.

You can do anything you please—
have them worshipping on their knees;
tie the noose tight around their necks,
but don’t cross me.

Don’t cross me!
