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
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
(Solo)
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 the maidens call
Approaching a time that is frantic
Standing with their backs to the wall
Was it polemically sent
I wanna know what you meant
I wanna know
I wanna know what you meant

    The is a song about Aleister Crowley, dubbed the most evil man alive. He was heavy into Satanism and the occult.

    Mr. Crowley, did you hear really hear voices? Were you truly a medium? You deceived people in the name of Satan. Did you think you were friends with the devil? All your knowledge was followed and worshipped by millions.

    The white horse is in the book of Revelation when Jesus comes in riding a white horse. Many people believe Mary to be a maiden (unmarried young girl) rather than a virgin at the time of Jesus's birth.

    Ozzie just has a lot of questions to evil peopl/things in his songs.

    If you get beyond your own 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 religious orthodoxy.

    Ozzy doesn't even write his own lyrics, sillys. He's a performer, and performs songs that frighten and titilate, like an actor in a horror movie. Most of these lyrics are nonsensical, but evolve around phrases that elicit mystery and creepy-ness. Anything more is in your head.

    The "white horse" reference is to heroin. Crowley was a heroin addict.
