Part 4  of FEAR is on the latest album, Vapor Trails, entitled FREEZE.
You disappoint me, my friend.

Contrary to my former post, I am not disappointed.  Most true Rushheads discard newer Rush, but the new album does kick ass--
check it out sometime, Jeff.

Here are the lyrics--

Freeze (Part IV of Fear)

The city crouches, steaming
In the early morning half-light
The sun is still a rumor
And the night is still a threat
Slipping through the dark streets
And the echoes and the shadows
Something stirs behind me
And my palms begin to sweat

Sometimes I freeze - until the light comes
Sometimes I fly - into the night
Sometimes I fight - against the darkness
Sometimes I'm wrong - sometimes I'm right

Coiled for the spring
Or caught like a creature in the headlights
Into a desperate panic
Or a tempest of blind fury
Like a cornered beast
Or a conquering hero

The menace threatens, closing
And I'm frozen in the shadows
I'm not prepared to run away
And I'm not prepared to fight

I can't stand to reason
Or surrender to a reflex
I will trust my instincts
Or surrender to my fright

Sometimes we freeze - until the light comes
Sometimes we're wrong - and sometimes we're right
Sometimes we fight - against the darkness
Sometimes we fly - into the night

Blood running cold
Mind going down into a dark night
Of a desperate panic
Or a tempest of blind fury
Like a cornered beast
Or a conquering hero

Sometimes I freeze
Sometimes I fight
Sometimes I fly
Into the night

In tradition with life/program applicable RUSH lyrics, this latest installment in the FEAR series sounds verbatim like a cop-out experience and life on the run from graduates, staff, parents, police, and other program associated fanatics.  
Fucking program.

Please accept my public apology for this oversight.  I bought the new album and even went to the Vapor Trails show twice, but have not invested even a minute in studying any lyrical content from it.

Prior to this new revelation, it was a trilogy (so I thought).  Thanks for the insight and for the addition!

I stood corrected, but will affirm my last stance because FEAR was in fact put together as a trilogy.  Parts I thru III or parts III thru I were released in a strategical order to try and depict the phenomenon of "Fear" in its origin and successive manifestations.  Parts I thru III fit perfectly together to form one whole.  Part IV - Freeze does well in acting as an ongoing continuation of Fear.  In fact, if it was released on Power Windows in 1985, I would have a different opinion.  Then again, its an opinion.  

They told me in KIDS to shove my opinions up my ass.  Well, please understand that I have too many opinions to fit, therefore, I am left no choice, but to voice it....

I just hope that you still think I'm still a true RUSH head after all this. ::drummer::
