Different World
Iron Maiden Lyrics


You lead me on the path
Keep showing me the way
I feel a little lost
A little strange today
I think I'll take a hold
Of whatever comes my way
Then we'll see what happens
Take it day by day

I thought I had it all
I had it all worked out
Just what the future held
That there would be no doubt
But then the card came up
And I took another turn
But I don't know if it's
Fulfillment that I yearn

Tell me what you can hear
And then tell me what you see
Everybody has a different way
To view the world
I would like you to know
When you see the simple things
To appreciate this life
It's not too late to learn

Don't want to be here
Somewhere I'd rather be
But when I get there
I might find it's not for me

Tell me what you can hear
And then tell me what you see
Everybody has a different way
To view the world
I would like you to know
When you see the simple things
To appreciate this life
It's not too late to learn

Tell me what you can hear
And then tell me what you see
Everybody has a different way
To view the world
I would like you to know
When you see the simple things
To appreciate this life
It's not too late to learn

Don't wanna be here
Somewhere I'd rather be
But when I get there
I might find it's not for me

Don't know what I want
Or where I want to be
Feeling more confused
The more the days go by

My interpretation of the song is this:

That as we follow the path that is life, we often get lost and confused along the way,
And no matter what we choose to learn, whether it be about science or knowledge, the diversity of our universe as a concept, and the fact that we will never TRULY know exactly everything about the world, makes us confused, because we're logical beings in nature.

And the fact that the universe does not always encompass simple yes or no's makes us both scared and confused, since we base our entire lifestyles and societies around facts, we start to think that we will know everything in the future.
We think that discovering the ultimate truths behind everything will fulfill us, but in reality we're all also driven by simple pleasures, things that may not seem so important from a LOGICAL perspective somehow fulfills us, such as simply enjoying art or the beauty of our world.

The chorus is trying to empathize the importance in keeping an open mind, because since there are some things that we can not base on totalitarian scientific fact, and the fact that we will never truly know everything about our universe, we will have to work together and communicate to produce a hospitable environment in which everyone can live peacefully, your views of the world differ from mine, but from what little fact that we DO have, we can at least make sure that everybody has it as good as possible.

Seeing the simple things, and appreciating life for what it is, does not however, mean that we should stop learning, as that is the reason for why we keep on living; we survive by adaptation.

The pre-ending empathizes how we as biological humans have different likes,
and that we may feel like our skills may be applied better if we were somewhere else, this is because we as humans strive for perfection, instead of simply making do with what works.

Even knowing that, we always worry that we won't feel good ourselves if we truly use our entire being to do a task, as if we're being used by our knowledge, even though it helps make the world a better place, there's always that ego telling you that you deserve peace too.

And as life goes on we continually grow, and as we do we continue to become more confused day by day, because our perceptions always change.

As a budding psychologist/philosopher, this hits right in the heart, because it reminds me of the fact that even though i will always try to learn more and more about the marvels of our human brain, and the way symbols and philosophy affects our mind, i will never truly know everything about it.

I have my own perception on why we exist:
I think us humans is the universe's way of seeing itself, tasting itself.
There is no particular reason for why we have some things, we simply do because of some randomized circumstances that just happened to work.
And in a way, i think evolution is beautiful like that.
Nothing serves a TRUE purpose, so giving us humans the ability to think outside the box and to be logical seems like the biggest practical joke that the universe has ever made.


Universe: IT'S JUST A PRANK BRO!

You lead me on the path
Keep showing me the way
I feel a little lost
A little strange today

I think I'll take a hold
Of whatever comes my way
Then we'll see what happens
Take it day by day

I thought I had it all
I had it all worked out
Just what my future held
That there would be no doubt

But then the card came up
And I took another turn
But I don't know if it's
Fulfillment that I yearn

Tell me what you can hear
And then tell me what you see
Everybody has a different way
To view the world

I would like you to know
When you see the simple things
To appreciate this life
It's not too late to learn

Don't want to be here
Somewhere I'd rather be
But when I get there
I might find it's not for me

Don't know what I want
Or where I want to be
I'm feeling more confused
The more the days go by



David Diaz

Tell me what you can hear
And then tell me what you see
Everybody has a different way
To view the world

I would like you to know
When you see the simple things
To appreciate this life
It's not too late to learn
