Rush - 'The Weapon' (Official Visualizer)

We’ve got nothing to fear - but fear itself?
Not pain or failure, not fatal tragedy?
Not the faulty units in this mad machinery?
Not the broken contacts in emotional chemistry?

With an iron fist in a velvet glove
We are sheltered under the gun
In the glory game on the power train
Thy kingdom’s will be done

And the things that we fear
Are a weapon to be held against us...

He’s not afraid of your judgement
He knows of horrors worse than your Hell
He’s a little bit afraid of dying -
But he’s a lot more afraid of your lying

And the things that he fears
Are a weapon to be held against him...

Can any part of life — be larger than life?
Even love must be limited by time
And those who push us down that they might climb -
Is any killer worth more than his crime?

Like a steely blade in a silken sheath
We don’t see what they’re made of
They shout about love, but when push comes to shove
They live for the things they’re afraid of

And the knowledge that they fear
Is a weapon to be used against them...

Rush - 'Signals'
Το τραγούδι "The Weapon" το γνωρίσαμε μέσα από το ένατο full length album των Rush, "Signals" (το πρώτο μουσικό κομμάτι της δεύτερης πλευράς του βινυλίου), που κυκλοφόρησε το φθινόπωρο του 1982. Πρόκειται για το δεύτερο μέρος της σειράς που οι Rush ονόμασαν "Fear" ("Witch Hunt" το πρώτο, "The Enemy Within" το τρίτο και "Freeze" το τέταρτο). Την μουσική "υπογράφουν" ο Geddy Lee και ο Alex Lifeson, ενώ οι στίχοι ανήκουν στον Neil Peart.

About "Signals": «Signals is the band’s ninth studio album, released in 1982. It was the follow-up to the (what would become) seminal Moving Pictures album. Stylistically, the album was a continuation of Rush’s foray into the technology-oriented 1980s through increased use of electronic instrumentation such as keyboards, sequencers, and electric violin.

The songs got shorter too. In fact, “New World Man” clocked in at a swift 3:42–it was the last and quickest-composed song on the album, written primarily to even out the lengths of the two sides of the cassette version.

The opening track, “Subdivisions,” is a staple of many of the band’s tours since its recording. Signals was the band’s last collaboration with producer Terry Brown, who had co-produced every Rush album since 1975’s Fly by Night, and had engineered the eponymous first album in 1974.»
