about

This was actually the first song written for the Four album, it kind of started it all.

I'm pretty sure that I had the title first, no music or anything. I just thought it would be a great title for Johnny Storm's autobiography!

It had to be fun and poppy, because it seemed like Johnny was the only member who was stoked about the whole incident.

lyrics

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
