about

This is our "long lost" tribute album to The Fantastic Four. Completed a long time ago (when we were still in our 20's!), and never actually released until now. Please have fun with it. We sure did!

Track Name: When We Crash Landed
I was dealing with a ghost from my dream
I gathered all the data and built a machine
Working on a starship, take my friends out for a ride
Things are gonna be different when we fall from the sky

And the radiation we forgot to block ourselves from is taking over me.

When we crash landed, what a strange scene
My friend Ben is orange and I’m stretching
My girl friends’ invisible, her brothers’ wrapped in flames
A solar flare made the four of us change.

And the radiation we forgot to block ourselves from is taking over me.
Track Name: Floating Backwards
Laying sprawled out in a field, can’t believe the way I feel
So I ask my brother John “Did you come to any harm?”
Floating backwards in a field, can’t believe my skin didn’t peel
So I ask my sister Sue “What the hell are we gonna do?”

Cause our ship flipped over, yeah our ship flipped over and over
Yeah our ship flipped over, Then our ship flipped over and over

And the greatest thing that you’ll ever see
the greatest thing about you and me
The greatest team the world has ever seen
the greatest team I do believe
Track Name: Still Floatin'
Staring upwards toward the sky, I wipe my eye and let a sigh.
I know we all will make mistakes, my stretch out heart begins to ache.

As armor closes up my skin, I feel the sadness hovering
I see the monster I’ve become, I take it out on everyone

Floating backwards in a field, can’t believe the way I feel.
Track Name: Newly Elastisized
I feel elastic lately
and all my molecules are drifting all off like aerosol
and I can’t breath in ‘cause I have been exposed.
And my legs feel shaky and my head wobbles
as I pick myself up and dust off
looks like years of work have gone up with the smoke
I feel elastic lately a real role model
I would take it all back for you all
but since that doesn't work we’ll go back to the east coast.

I’m taking the blame for my actions,
I’m dodging the daggers from my friend Ben
And my nerves are shot to kingdom come,
we can’t go back because that race is run.

I’m backed with abundant resources
I’d fly just to beat the Communist
“Hold tight” I warn you and admit that I’d be lost without you.

‘Cause I’m running all the risk while the others resign to lay down on the job
Running down the worst while the others resign to cry

I feel elastic lately and all my molecules are drifting all off like aerosol and I can’t breath in ‘cause I have been exposed.
I feel elastic lately a real role model I would take it all back for you all but since that doesn't work we’ll go back to the east coast.

I’m taking the blame for my actions, I’m dodging the daggers from my friend Ben
I’m checking the angles that I can bend, I’m moving in ways I can’t comprehend

I’m backed with abundant resources
I’d fly just to beat the Communist
“Hold tight” I warn you and admit that I’m right in the thick of it.
Track Name: Flame On! (My Life As A Human Torch)
Flame On! My life as a Human Torch
Flame On! My ship got knocked off course through a radioactive field and it’s changing the way I feel
Flame On! My name is Johnny Storm
Flame On! I watched my skin change form to a red hot plasma man, and I’m doing the best I can

‘Cause I fly through the air with the greatest of ease and I’m burning 780 degrees
That’s me up there, the Human Torch in the sky
And I’m going places that you’d never go and you’re petrified when I’m flying solo
The arms of fate shoved me right back to the globe, I was exposed now the whole world knows

Flame On! My life as a Human Torch
Flame On! My ship got knocked off course through a radioactive field and it’s changing the way I feel
Flame On! I’m with the Fantastic Four
Flame On! My home is New York New York, I’m a red hot burning man when supervillians get out of hand

‘Cause I take to the air at the first sign of trouble and they know that it’s me ‘cause I’m not very subtle
That’s me up there, the Human Torch in the sky
And you can’t catch me I move too fast and I melt their armor when I fly past
The arms of fate shoved me right back to the globe, I was exposed now the whole world knows
Track Name: Invisible Girl
An invisible girl, ain’t that something?
Taking a break from being nothing
And if she goes with this life,
There won’t be Friday nights

You never thought you’d be a volunteer
Going back and forth again, Oh bother
Sometimes she’d like to be footloose free
Its been a long long long time.
Track Name: Invisible Woman
The Invisible Girl is now a woman
Taking a chance on being something
And if she sees, things aren't right
Bless her heart, she's gonna fight

You don’t have to choose
Ghost or Woman
Going back and forth
With no problem

You could have pulled that stunt almost anywhere
but my hometown ‘cause i don’t care
If you're made of metal of made of bone
If you got friends or you're all alone
Are you trying to smother me
with all your power but I still breathe
We’re made of carbon we’re made of bone
We’re made of flames and stone
Track Name: Clobberin' Time!
It happened fast as lightning, now I stare at orange cold rock and I’m alone
Can’t look at myself and I can’t ask why

Father Father here me calling I rarely know what’s right or wrong
It took me a while to get use to myself as an orange hulk but I feel fine
Every night I dream of dark days corrupted things and endless crime
My heart is beating as fast as it can

As soon as we got there, bad times were rolling
And I can’t let it be, for the life of me

My heart is beating as fast as it can
Track Name: Cinder Block
Dreaming beyond the movies, they can’t unglue me if they try
Staring a cracked up driveway that resembles my face I recognize
Now that the blood is rushing and now I’m crushing what I find

How can I face the others?
How can I live with this?
How can I face the others?
Now that I’ve come to this?

Dreaming beyond the movies and they can’t move me if they try
Staring a Smartship Friday whos going my way, I wont think about it anymore

I’m on my way don’t worry when you're sinking again, I’ll spend half my time learning to swim
This Cinder Block won’t drown me if I kick till the end and forget about all that I did
Track Name: Fall Through The Flames
Fall through the flames, I want to do it again, over and over
I can’t complain, I want to do it again over and over again
