The Devil's Bleeding Crown Lyrics

Falling from the sky, they're cast out from the heaven's light
Drenching the soil with blood, baptized in the fire hole

The Devil's spawn no longer breathes
Descending angels and fallen kings
Raise your hands, what do you hold?

    In revelations it speaks of the anti Christ or "the devils spawn" this could be the story of how Jesus will lead the battle as stated in the same book of the bible and how the angles lead by Jesus will
    Come down from heaven to a war torn earth (seven years I believe) and basically fight the antichrist in a hell on earth. And holding his bleeding crown could be when the antichrist is finally killed and the rebuilding of earth is beginning

    My take is god cast down satan and the men of the earth picked up his crown either in victory or to take his place

    "I Know Exactly What it means" By Ken Jeong.... It is definitely a religious thing because i was just listening to the song and the says "oh lord oh lord the horned one is back and he wants his crown." and " the devils spawn no longer breaths" meaning that GOD won and they are warning him. So they believe in him.

    Volbeat doesn't believe in God or the Devil; Poulsen has said so in interviews. The song is about conquering evil and conquering one's own fears. The song refers to "descending angels" and "fallen kings," which is a pretty blatant reference to religious leaders and politicians. That interpretation is much more consistent with what one would expect from the band. Anyone who says this song is some religious polemic is smoking some serious dope.

    It's a mockery of Christ.

    Im not sure. Still thinking on it. But one thing is for sure. If there wasnt a God or Lucifer in whom has already been defeated then Michael wouldnt be writing about it.

    Rob Caggiano says to a radio host that it's about the sons of Satan. That's all he said.

    Well, they're all great theories. As an atheist, to take it literally, or metaphorically, is just silly. It's a badass song, great beat, jam out with your cock out!!!

    It's much easier to pick up the devils bleeding crown than it is to show faith in GOD.

    We are all devil spawn,(reference the book of Genesis)where Eve was tempted by Satan to eat the forbidden fruit. It was the woman who ate the fruit punishing us all with death. Life is a fight between good and evil, or as DIO said, "it's on and on heaven and hell". We seek out good and fight evil, but we constantly struggle with both. Before we die it's up to you whom holds the devils bleeding crown.

    I think it is about the nephilim, children of angels and mortal women. The nephilim were consider kings who required sacrifices. God wiped them out with a flood. The angels were cast out of heaven. Just seems similar. But hey that's just an opinion.

    To me, it is about trying not to be the awful people our parents may have been. That people think you're going to be just like them, but you try and try to rise above it. They'll fight you, they'll treat you the same, and part of you wants to be just like them but is above it.

    It's about a future war between dogs and cats.
    The cats are all like, "look at me I do nothing and get treated better than you!"
    And dogs are all like, " aw hell no, I'm eating you!"

    It seems to me, the suggested definition is of sacrifice. The "angels" being a person's hopes, and "kings" being that person's ego. When you let that go, "the devil's spawn no longer breathes."
    "Falling from the sky," what's, "cast out from the heaven's light," is a person's wrath, and a person's anger, in a way, is allowing themselves to be, "baptized in a fire hole."

    It is then suggested to, "call upon it's father (a person's conscience or self-awarness), and to, "bless the goat," is the very meaning of making a selfless sacrifice of your temptations; like a lustfull, "womanizer," not unlike myself. I love gorgeous women. To sum up the interpretation, don't be stupid. We can all chose better whenever we're ready. The devil's bleeding crown is a trophy of a personal conquest to better one's self. Work it out!

    They are talking about the fall of rock n roll. Cast aside to shit music. Even though the crown bleeds rock n roll is coming back.
