about

This track focuses on Reed and the high stress he has found himself under.

In the first issue of The Fantastic Four, there is talk about flying the ship early so that they can beat the "Commies" into outer space. Now, having grown up an Air Force Brat, and living in a time before the Cold War thawed itself, I was all for socking it to the "Commies"! So, it was fun to include the lyric about beating the communist!

lyrics

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.
