Back In The Village is, as you probably know, about the cult 1960's TV series The Prisoner. But it could also be about the book and film named "1984" by George Orwell in 1948. In the book, the world is made into a prison, with ID cards, cameras, new languages-no-one is free. Everyone is a prisoner, and can't break out without Big Brother knowing. In the TV series The Prisoner, everyone is kept in The Village and can't escape, no-one is free. The song could be about the book 1984, but described in a similar vein to The Prisoner-the 1984 thing could be because of the year of Powerslave's release. It's quite a silly idea with little merit, but it's just a thought.
