This is a very introspective song, which combines soft acoustic verses with powerful choruses and instrumentals. Although its title may have been inspired by the 1987 film, the lyrics do not deal at all with the story line. Its topic is the familiar questions about the meaning of life, which the song doesn't attempt to answer. Instead, there is an uncharacteristic appeal to God for answers. However, it is difficult to see a link between the lyrics and the song's title. In any case, this is a very good song, possibly one of the best on the entire album.

This song has Steve's lyrics and for me it has the best vocals on the album the one I like best, even though it's like just two lines. It's one of the best "quiet beginning"-type songs I've ever done with Maiden and I really like the melody line.
