Frankenstein's Crazy

Rough version of a new Frankenstein song, to Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bd2B6SjMh_w)

I see this as being a choir number/soloist number - the original song uses a simple drum line, strings and backup vocals, which would all work great with a choir. We'd have a soloist as Frankenstein, singing the story, and a bunch of dancers dressed as zombies prowling around the stage, doing little bits of zombie-style movements around the place. The wording's rough so edit away to your heart's content! I really like the idea of a zombie song, so if you can think of a better one, write it :)
I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place.
Even your emotions had an echo
In so much space

And when you're out there
Without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Possibly

And I hope that you are having the time of your life
But think twice, that's my only advice

Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,
Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think you're in control

Well, I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
Just like me

My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb
And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them

Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun
And it's no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done

Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe you're crazy
Maybe we're crazy
Probably

I remember when, I remember, I remember when it crossed my mind
To take a bunch of dead bodies and give them life
Working all day in a laboratory
On a dark stormy night

Forty weeks down there
Didn't care
Yea I carved with my knife
After so much work and so much time

Finally it was alive


And they called me crazy!
Frankenstein’s crazy!
They called me crazy!
Rightfully

And if you try to bring your own creation to life
Well that’s nice, you’ve got a heart of ice

Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you think gave you that scar?
Hahaha- bless your soul
Just lose control!

My monster’s crazy
My monster’s crazy
My monster’s crazy
Just like me


It tore my friends apart, they’were ripped from limb to limb.
And all I remember, is thinking, I’ll avenge them.


So I tracked it down, tracked it down and lay in wait with my gun
But my creature expected me to come
And now I think my life’s done.

Frankenstein's crazy!

My monster’s crazy!

We both went crazy!

Horribly!
