"The Twilight Zone" is the third track on Rush's album 2112. It was the last track written and recorded for the album. It was the first single to be released from 2112. As with most Rush songs, the lyrics are written by Neil Peart, and the music by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson. It is based on two episodes of The Twilight Zone: "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?" (first verse) and "Stopover in a Quiet Town" (second verse).[1] Rush had dedicated their previous album, Caress of Steel, to the memory of The Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling.[2]

The creators of the Marvel comic book series Defenders dedicated its 45th issue to Rush. In that issue, a character named Red Rajah says that "Truth is false and logic lost, consult the Rajah at all cost."[3]
