The Twilight Zone
by Rush

  • A pleasant-faced man steps up to greet you
    He smiles and says he's pleased to meet you
    Beneath his hat the strangeness lies
    Take it off, he's got three eyes
    Truth is false and logic lost
    Now the fourth dimension is crossed

    Ni, ni, ni, ni, ni ni, ni ni
    You have entered the Twilight Zone
    Beyond this world strange things are known
    Use the key, unlock the door
    See what your fate might have in store
    Come explore your dreams' creation
    Enter this world of imagination

    You wake up lost in an empty town
    Wondering why no one else is around
    Look up to see a giant boy
    You've just become his brand new toy
    No escape, no place to hide
    Here where time and space collide

    Ni, ni, ni, ni, ni ni, ni ni
    You have entered the Twilight Zone
    Beyond this world strange things are known
    Use the key, unlock the door
    See what your fate might have in store
    Come explore your dreams' creation
    Enter this world of imagination Writer/s: Neil Elwood Peart, Gary Lee Weinrib, Alex Zivojinovich

  • Dale from Santa Fe, NmJust another fantastic Rush song.
  • Dominick from New York, NyThere was another song called "Twilight Zone (When The Bullet Hits The Bone)" by Golden Earring in 1982.
  • Dominick from New York, NyMike,

    I don't think the last episode (#156) was made in France. It was a different episode from the last season that was made in France and shown at the Cannes Film festival. It was the only one of the 156 episodes that was not made as a Twilight Zone episode and that's why it's not shown on reruns.

    The episode was called "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." It's about a Confederate soldier who is about to be hanged by the Union soldiers, but the rope breaks and he escapes into the Creek and swims away. For the whole episode the Union soldiers pursue him, but he manages to escape. When he arrives at his plantation he sees his wife and they run towards each other to embrace.

    As his wife puts her arms around his neck, the scene shifts back to the Creek, he's pushed off the bridge, and hanged. He had imagined the whole escape scene in the few seconds before he was hanged.

    I think that is the episode you mean that qualified for an Oscar. I did an entire database and program of the Twilight Zone series, so I know a little about it.

    Great stuff. As a child, The Hitchhiker episode used to scare me.

  • Mike from Mountlake Terrace, Washington~The Twilight Zone series ran from 1959-1964~

    "Where is Everybody?", the series' pilot, original air date October 2, 1959, about a man apparently with amnesia who wakes up lost in an empty town, wondering why no one else is around.

    The series final episode "The Bewitching pool"
    -about two neglected children who escape their constantly bickering parents by diving into their swimming pool and emerging in a mysterious, but loving, world, which aired June 18, 1964 was a short film made in France, which qualified it for an Oscar. It was also shown on another series Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

  • Mike from Mountlake Terrace, WashingtonOn the back of the album sleeve of Caress of Steel (1975) was printed the statement "Dedicated to the memory of Mr. Rod Serling" Serling wrote most Twilight Zone episodes and narrated the show. Rod Serling died just 3 months before Caress of Steel was released in Sept. 1975
