"Accept Crime" as written by George Pettit, Jordan Hastings, Chris Steele, Dallas Green and Wade Macneil....
Everybody on the count of three
Accept crime 1-2-3
Bethlehem to Galilee
Accept crime 1-2-3

Between the sheets, the voyeur watches you
And each caress takes us one step further from his tired truth
Say, we will be free, to use our bodies as we please
We will be free, to use our bodies as we please

Say hey! There's no police!
Hey, there's no police between two beating hearts
Hey! There's no police!
Hey, there's no police between two beating hearts

Let the clergy damn our every emotion
Until every impulse is a revolution
And will we know to bring good, we'll let it carry us through
It's your chance to use your disobedience
We will say
We will be free, to use our bodies as we please
We will be free, to use our bodies as we please

Say hey! There's no police!
Hey, there's no police between two beating hearts
Hey! There's no police!
There's no police, no police between two beating hearts

I'll feel no guilt
I won't repent
Day to day I accept crime
And that's for me to confess

Hey! There's no police!
Hey, there's no police between two beating hearts
Hey! There's no police!
Hey, there's no police between two beating hearts
Between two beating hearts
Between two beating hearts
Between two beating hearts
Between two beating hearts
I know

    General Commenti think this song is about saying fuck you to religion and not letting religions tell you how sex or love is bad and how during sex or love no one can enforce anything on you or regulate it. my guess

    My Interpretationi think you're right that this is about religion but it could also be about same sex marriage as not every person/religion accepts it. this song is basically saying 'fuck you, we can love whoever we want'.

    General CommentThis song's about same sex marriage. It's about how the church and anyone else shouldn't separate two people who love eachother and how they shouldn't be 'the police between two beating hearts.' It, ssaying that if love is a crime, accept it.

    Song MeaningI saw them at the Eastpak Antidote tour and George said the song is about people using religion to justify homophobia.

    Definitely my favourite song off OC/YC.

    General CommentPretty sure this song is based off George Orwell's 1984. Great book, great song.
