Part II of the Fear Series or Fear Trilogy is from the 1982 album Signals. "The Weapon" explains how everything that people fear can be used against them as a weapon. The songs do not follow a set storyline. Instead, they deal with topics relating to the emotion of fear.

The other songs in the Fear Series include Part I: "The Enemy Within" (from 1984's Grace Under Pressure), Part III: "Witch Hunt" (from 1981's Moving Pictures) and Part IV: "Freeze"… read more

We've got nothin' to fear but fear itself
Not pain, not failure, not fatal tragedy
Not the faulty units in this mad machinery
Not the broken contacts in emotional chemistry

  • This was the first tour I saw 1983 I think. Greatest Band Ever!!!
