All the drunks in the alleys are taking up arms to undo their whole lives in a day
If their hearts they don't change before long in the heart of the beast they will lay

He peels the wood from the walls to get to us
He steals the good from this town

So wash the black from your fingertips
And give in
Give in
Give in

Raise up from the cellars
Fill the streets with his dead
This time
This time
This time

    General CommentFrom the site:

    "THAT CROWN DONT MAKE YOU A PRINCE is another song about war, though it is more from a spiritual angle. The lines have been drawn and sides chosen for the battle between good and evil, yet some linger in the middle or don't care. Those that don't worry until the end is near are corrupted by inaction and so their fate is sealed. "The drunks in the alleys are taking up arms to undo their whole lives in a day" is the last ditch attempt of these people to try and pick a side. This song is almost a chant for these people to fight, yet, it is too late to save their souls from damnation. If good hasn't been in their hearts all along, they are gonna burn burn burn."
