  • Lyrics
  • Written by Blaze Bayley, Jannick Gers and Steve Harris, this song has very pessimistic lyrics which are referring to a man who is living alone with nothing better to do with his life and no hope for the future.
  • Around 1993 Steve Harris got a divorce from his wife Lorraine and in an interview with Greek Metal Hammer Magazine said he was not having the best days of his life, both because Bruce Dickinson left the band and his personal problems with his family. So,it's easy to say the song presents the psychological situation that Harris had at that period of his life. >>

  • Richard Harris from Bc CanadaQuite depressing song, not too motivational, this song represents the true mood of this album, almost opposite of Maiden's other works.
  • Dave from Melbourne, AustraliaAwesone song. You can feel the anger and depression quite deeply throughout when you hear it. It's about a guy who has simply had enough of his life and feels worthless.
  • Quentin from Faribault, MnI give this a 4 out of 5, due to the 18-25yrs directional age group intended for. I wanted to give it a FIVE, and certainly will pass it on to my brother, but... We have to contend with the idea of an all time top 100 hundred. Close, but just outside. Keep rock'in.
