This song touches on themes of personal responsibility, and it may be directed at Metallica, who was fighting against the file sharing service Napster, in an effort to keep fans from downloading their songs for free. Hence the "web" in the song. Bruce Dickinson had said that he encourages fans to download the songs, as long as they buy the album.
As stated by Bruce at the Rock Am Ring concert in 2003 in Germany before performing the song "Wildest Dreams": "If you have your tape recorder or MP3 recorder or what not with you, as long as you buy the album in September, we don't give a f--k! You do whatever the hell you want with this song, post it on the internet, we simply don't care." The band has even stated at another concert on the same tour: "We're not like Metallica."
