The lyrics are by Neko Oikawa while the arrangement is by Toshiyuki O'mori. This song was written with relatively limited involvement from Hideaki Anno and the production staff, being handled by producer Toshimichi Otsuki. Oikawa apparently had very little knowledge of the show, which was under production at the time with the episodes not having been colored. According to tweets and interviews, Oikawa went through a proposal of the show possibly Neon Genesis Evangelion Proposal and watched two unfinished episodes on fast-forward, only serving to broadly "fit" the anime after the fact    The writing process for Episode 01 took as long as six months,  and the opening sequence was not yet finished. Oikawa states that she took inspiration for the title from the manga A Cruel God Reigns.

AMALEE - CRUEL ANGEL'S THESIS (NEON GENESIS EVANGELION) LYRICS
Like an angel who has forsaken sympathy Rise up, young boy, and make yourself a legend! This cruel thesis, a spiteful angel's litany Will soon soar from the window of your destiny White-hot pathos, a desecrated symphony Stay true to this and don't betray your memory! Come now, reach out, you must embrace reality! Rise up, young boy, and make yourself a legend! This cruel thesis, a spiteful angel's mockery Will bring with it the sorrow of futility Hold on tightly and do not lose vitality You must wake up, for now the dream is history! Come now, reach out, you must embrace humanity! You will get 3 free months if you haven't already used an Apple Music free trial.

Like an Angel with no sense of mercy, Rise, young boy, to the heavens like a legend, Cold winds are blue as the sea, Tear open the door of your heart, I see, But you're just standing there, staring at me, Smiling so serenely, Desperate for something to touch, A moment of kindness, like that in a dream, Your innocent eyes, they have yet no idea, Of the path your destiny will follow, But someday you shall become aware of everything that's behind you, On your back there are wings leading to the far future you only can search for, The Cruel Angel's Thesis, Is bleeding through a portal just like your pulsing blood, If you ever betray the chapel of your memories, He will enter through the door at your soul, So, boy, stand tall and embrace the fire, Embrace the universe just like a blazing star!! Sledding for a very long time, In the cradle of my love, The morning shall come when you only shall be, Dovecote to a missionary of love, The moonlight makes, The name of your neck visible, Stopping time all over the world, The darkness shall enclose us all!! If our encounter has a higher meaning, It must be, yes, the bible of freely thinking, The Cruel Angel's Thesis The beginning of sadness is here, When you awoke to seek out your dream. No matter what, boy, you'd be a myth, Spinning loves, people make a history, Without such a goddess I shall live, The Cruel Angel's Thesis, Is bleeding through a portal just like your pulsing blood, If you ever betray the chapel of your memories, He will enter through the door at your soul, So, boy, stand tall and embrace the fire, Embrace the universe just like a blazing star!!
