The Proposition lyrics

The Proposition

FRANKENSTEIN:
I created you with a noble purpose--
To free mankind from the fear of death!
If I had known it would lead to such bloodshed,
I would never have given you breath!

CREATURE:
Has it not pierced your brilliant mind,
Our actions cannot be undone?
I will reign fear upon your kind,
Unless you now complete what you've begun!

Listen carefully, Victor Frankenstein:
I have a proposition to present to you!
You have one chance to redeem your transgressions--
You have one last experiment to do!

Create a woman to share this strife,
Make her as vile as my darkest pain!
Grant me the joy of a kindred wife--
In return, you shall never see me again.

FRANKENSTEIN:
Never! Impossible! Preposterous!
Your scheme is outrageous, absurd!
One more just as monstrous--
I'll not inflict such horror on this world!

CREATURE:
What's wrong, what's right?
Do you decide?
I'm more than blood and bone!
I need a mate--
One made as I!
I won't exist alone!

FRANKENSTEIN:
Who are you to make demands,
Who's now twice a criminal--
My brother's blood upon your hands,
Asking me to serve your will!

A second beast to bring new terror
[Creature groans]
Upon the young and innocent?
I'll not willingly repeat my error!
You will not get my consent!

CREATURE:
Victor, you complete this task,
And end your family's mourning!
It's the last I'll ever ask.
The boy was just a warning!

Create another wretch as I,
A love I cannot be denied,
A soul content to live beside me.
I'll take my bride and run away,
Someplace safe where we can stay
Far from man and his insanity!

FRANKENSTEIN:
I think it wrong, I think it sick!
A corruption of biology!

CREATURE:
But here's your chance to make it right
And offer an apology!

FRANKENSTEIN:
Can I undo the great mistake?
Erase the sorrow from my wake,
Never again to face this demon?
And might I still attain the dream,
With now a woman as the means,
Bestowing life upon my mission?

FRANKENSTEIN, CREATURE, CHORUS:
Life everlasting, reanimation,
A flawless new design!
The finest woman in all creation,
And she will be--

CREATURE:
Mine!

FRANKENSTEIN:
But softer now! A female frame,
And agile hands required!
And one who was lost, may yet be reclaimed,
Reborn of heaven's fires!

CREATURE:
This is your chance! You will atone,
And never see me again!
Master your fate and face the unknown,
And bring this nightmare to an end!

FRANKENSTEIN:
This is my chance! I will atone!

CREATURE:
Here's your last chance to atone!

FRANKENSTEIN:
I'll finally know peace!

CREATURE:
As will I!

FRANKENSTEIN, CREATURE:
One more leap/One leap into the unknown,
And curse the name of Frankenstein!
