There are a lot of different types of music on the CD, mostly paying homage to bands like ELP, Genesis, Kansas, UK, Yes, King Crimson, Kevin Gilbert....

The story is told by the monster, 200 years later, as he warns a genetic researcher about the possible consequences of making the first human clone of herself.
Gotta get out, gotta get away, somewhere safe, somewhere sane
Somewhere they don't know my face, somewhere they won't know my name
Somewhere they can't know my shame...

Dancing shadows in the night,
Shivering by candelight,
I have been a maniac,
Too late now to take it back,

My perfect man is just debris,
I feel my blood begin to freeze,
The air is sucked out of my lungs,
Oh my God what have I done? I'm...

Running out of time,
Running from the room,
Running out of hope,
Running away from you,
Running till I fall,
Running to my doom,
Running from myself,
Is like running from the Moon,

I'm completely horrified,
When I look into it's frozen eye,
Twisted, tangled up in fear,
Wishing it away from here,

Wake me from this sleepless dream,
Choking off my silent scream,
strangled by my foolish pride,
there's nowhere for me to hide,

Running out of time,
Running from the room,
Running out of hope,
Running away from you,
Running till I fall,
Running to my doom,
Running from myself,
Is like running from the Moon,

Running out of time (pounding in my ear
Running from the room (filling me with fear)
Running out of hope (trying to get away from you)
Running away from you

Running till I fall (I tripped upon my pride)
Running to my doom (there's nowhere I can hide)
Running from myself (I hit the ground running)
Is like running from the Moon
