Things Frankenstein’s Monster Says in Frankenstein That I Believe Will Appear on The Mountain Goats’ Upcoming Album ‘Goths’

The Mountain Goats have announced the release of their new album on May 19. It will be called Goths and it will feature songs called ‘Wear Black,’ ‘Abandoned Flesh,’ and ‘Grave Dust.’ Here are some lyrics that I am predicting are on the album, assuming that it consists entirely of quotes from the monster in Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein.

GOD IN PITY
MADE MAN BEAUTIFUL AND ALLURING
AFTER HIS OWN IMAGE
BUT MY FORM
IS A FILTHY TYPE OF YOURS

I BORE A HELL WITHIN ME
AND WISHED TO TEAR UP THE TREES
SPREAD HAVOC AND DESTRUCTION
AND THEN TO HAVE SAT DOWN
AND ENJOYED THE RUIN

I TURNED MY FURY TOWARDS
INANIMATE OBJECTS

I WAS FAR TOO UNHAPPY
TO ENJOY THE GENTLE BREEZES OF EVENING
OR THE PROSPECT OF THE SUN
SETTING BEHIND THE STUPENDOUS MOUNTAINS

WHAT DID THIS MEAN
WHO WAS I
WHAT WAS I
WHENCE DID I COME
WHAT WAS MY DESTINATION

MY ORGANS
WERE INDEED HARSH
BUT SUPPLE

THE FEELINGS OF KINDNESS AND GENTLENESS
GAVE PLACE TO HELLISH RAGE
AND GNASHING OF TEETH

SATAN HAD HIS COMPANIONS
FELLOW DEVILS
TO ADMIRE AND ENCOURAGE HIM
BUT I AM SOLITARY
AND
ABHORRED
