The Lyrics

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. In my case, a very twisted imagination. Perhaps not as twisted, though, as that of Rodman Edward Serling (1924-1975). But those twists brought us one of the greatest TV shows ever. A program known as... "The Twilight Zone."
In a little while from now
that show will make me say "Wow."
I promised myself to treat myself
to a show as strange as allowed.
For approval, submitted
a shocked look on Shatner's head
in an effort to prove to me and you
on the plane's wing, there's a creature
who's ripping metal off.
Getting rough, this plane is crashing!
They don't believe, can't bring relief.
To space, his mind is dashing.
Before he began his trek
where did Shatner walk on deck?
The Zone again, naturally.

To think, back in fifty-nine
Rod Serling's show sublime
had some weird shows with Burgess Meredith
in an alternate nuclear time.
And the bomb was dropped way down
but protected, he came around
and he saw the books, but he cannot look
'cause his glasses have been shattered.
Then there was the show
talkin' 'bout God and His mercy.
The Chancellor said He don't exist.
but fascism deserts he.
That world will not complete.
Ideology obsolete.
The Zone again, naturally.

It seems to me that there are Martians
landing on this world.
Where are they hidden?
Did Venus beat them?
What do we do?
What do we do?

(instrumental break)

The Zone again, naturally.

And looking back over the shows
as the "O. Henry ending" goes
the show with Hitler's ghost got the hate mail most
as Dennis Hopper got new foes.
And at 49 years old
Rod Serling, rest his soul
died from all those smokes, and that ain't no joke
and the CBS revivals
didn't have the heart
tried to start, but old ones groovy.
But should we last so long in past
like in the "Stop at Willoughby"?
From TV, I walked away.
I shook my head all day.
The Zone again, naturally.

The Zone again.
Naturally.
