Cradle Of Filth – Mr. Crowley lyrics

Mr. Crowley, what went wrong in your head?
Oh, Mr. Crowley, did you talk with the dead?
Your life style to me seemed so tragic
With the thrill of it all
You fooled all the people with magic
Yeah you waited on Satan's call

Mr. Charming, did you think you were pure?
Mr. Alarming, in nocturnal rapport
Uncovering things that were sacred
Manifest on this Earth
Conceived in the eye of a secret
And they scattered the afterbirth

Mr. Crowley, won't you ride my white horse?
Oh, Mr. Crowley, it's symbolic of course
Approaching a time that is classic
I hear that mating call
Approaching a time that is drastic
Standing with their backs to the wall

Was it polemically sent?
I want to know what you meant
I want to know
I want to know what you meant

    If you get beyond your own religious biases, these lyrics are questions someone would ask when faced with the claims Crowley made. The lyric is not written as agreeing with Crowley, but questioning his claims, and in the end, confessing a lack of understanding the writings Crowley left behind. Whether or not Crowley was evil or not depends on where you stand. Like many of us, he was a questioner, but unlike many of us, he claimed to find answers that were not popular with the mainstream.
