The Frankenstein Playlist: Track Four

The Playlist So Far:

  • 1- The Creature Lives by Mastodon
  • 2- My Father's House by Bruce Springsteen
  • 3- Cold Water by Tom Waits
The tracks so far have tended to the melancholy, for certain, but it's also important to embrace the rage and brutality of the creature. There is anger, there is hurt, there is betrayal, and there is pain. There is also power, pure inhuman power, and that has to be manifest in the Creature's physicality.

I, alas, am only human, and that  leaves me with the challenge of how to convey something more powerful than I could ever be. Not just in moments of violence, but also in common movements. Today's track, when it sank in, gave me a bit of the Creature's gait and walk. It's pounding and powerful, but also somewhat lurching, without the sense of...lack of forward momentum.

I'm honestly not sure how successful I have been. Truly, it's the kind of thing that you can only measure once a true audience sees what you've been working on.

The Apparition
by Iron Maiden

I'm here can you see me
'Cos I'm out on my own
When the room goes cold tell me
you can feel me
..........'cos I'm here

Here I am, can't you see me

Passing through, on my way
To a place I'd been to only in my
dreams... before

In a world of delusion

Never turn your back on a friend
'Cos you can count your
real true friends on one hand
..........through life

There are those that deceive you

There are those that'll let you down
Is there someone out there that would
die for you
..........thought not

Live your life with a passion

Everything you do, do well
You only get out of life what you put in
..........so they say

In a world of confusion

People never say what they mean
If you want a straight answer
go look for one
..........right now

In a room full of strangers

Do you stand with your back to the wall
Do you sometimes feel like you're
on the outside
..........looking in?

You can make your own luck

You create your destiny
I believe you have the power
if you want to
..........it's true

You can do what you want to

If you try a little bit harder
A little bit of faith goes a long way
..........it does

Are we here for a reason?

I'd like to know just what you think
It would be nice to know what
happens when we die
..........wouldn't it?

There are some who are wise

There are some who are born naive
I believe that there are some that must
have lived before
..........don't you?

As for me, well I'm thinking

You gotta keep an open mind
But I hope that my life's not an
open and shut case

Extrasensory Perception

Life after death, telepathy
Can the soul live on and travel through
space and time?

You know I feel so elated

'Cos I'm about to find it out
And when I know all the answers
Maybe then I'll come back
..........to fill you in

You don't be alarmed now

If I try to contact you
If things go missing or get moved around
...it's me
And don't disbelieve it
No matter what your "friends"
might say
We'll meet up again someplace
some way
..........one day
