About Dope Hat

"Dope Hat" is a promotional single from Marilyn Manson's debut album, Portrait of an American Family. It was first recorded for a demo tape released in 1992, entitled The Family Jams. The song was remixed on the band's 1995 EP, Smells Like Children, under the titles of "Diary of a Dope Fiend" (reference to the Diary of a Drug Fiend by Aleister Crowley) (a re-record) and "Dance of the Dope Hats" (a faster and more synthesized version). The music video was inspired by Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, particularly the Wondrous Boat Ride scene.

I peek into the hole  I struggle for control 
The children love the show  but they fail to see the anguish in my 
eyes 
Fail to see the anguish in my eyes 
I scratch around the brim  I let my mind give in 
The crowd begins to grin  but they seem to scream when darkness fills 
my eyes 
Seem to scream when darkness fills my eyes  it's no surprise 
Fail to see the tragic  turn it into magic 
My big top tricks will always make you happy 
But we all know the hat is wearing me 
My bag is in the hat, it's filled with this and that 
My vision's getting fat, the rabbit's just a monkey in disguise 
Stars and pills and needles dance before our eyes 
They will bite the hand if it is slower than the quickness of their 
scrutinizing eyes 
Fail to see the tragic, turn it into magic 
My big top tricks will always make you happy 
But we all know the hat is wearing me 
Chicanery will always make you happy 
But we all know the hat is wearing me

Marilyn Manson

Brian Hugh Warner (born January 5, 1969), better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American rock musician and former music journalist known for his controversial stage persona and image as the lead singer of the eponymous band Marilyn Manson. His stage name was formed from juxtaposing the names of two American cultural icons, namely actress Marilyn Monroe and multiple murder convict Charles Manson as a critical and, simultaneously, laudatory appraisal of America and its peculiar culture. The seemingly outrageous visual and vocal styles he employs, his unique interpretations of familiar songs and the controversy surrounding his lyrics and imagery have led to his very pronounced public appeal. more »
