I think the song is basically about how change can both be imperative and difficult at the same time. The different questions/scenarios the song paints require you to look deep into yourself and ask yourself what would make you make a paradigm shift. We're all different and different things appeal to us differently, so what is it that would make you start to look at things DIFFERENTLY??
