Prelude Lyrics 



Prelude Song Lyrics


WALTON (speaking)
Captain Robert Walton, in a letter to his sister - November 9th, 1793. It was just north of the Arctic Circle that I
discovered adrift, on a floe of ice beside our ship, a wretch, near death. In the days that followed he would tell me a tale
strange and horrifying: his life - a twisted path of destruction, his deeds - almost too incredible to recount.

FRANKENSTEIN
I am the innocent
I am the damned.

WALTON (speaking)
I alone know the heart of this man...

FRANKENSTEIN
A fount of delusion
A father of dreams.

WALTON (speaking)
...for I am still haunted by the faces of those he loved...

ALPHONSE FRANKENSTEIN
His adoring father, who could see in him only greatness.

CAROLINE BEAUFORT
The mother, whose loving spirit he could not bear to lose.

WILLIAM FRANKENSTEIN
The young brother, who worshipped him.

JUSTINE MORITZ
And the faithful servant, who understood why.

FRANKENSTEIN
I am not a madman!

HENRY CLERVAL
The soul who was his dearest friend in life.

WALTON
And the woman who, from their childhood days, had been his -

ELIZABETH
- one true love.

FRANKENSTEIN
I can hear my name!

WALTON
His story is the prophecy of nightmares.

FRANKENSTEIN
Blackened by my crime!

JUSTINE MORITZ
Yet it must be told.

FRANKENSTEIN
Haunting me and taunting
As it echoes through all time...

WALTON
His name... is Frankenstein.
