To defend in wars a land of the holy
I threw a rock and I ran
Cause I couldn't stand anymore within the depths of the sand
So don't ask me who's sane
This line playes with words giving them two meanings such as
1: I threw a rock and I ran(IRAQ/IRAN)
In the middle east(mostly Palestinian’s) they have been throwing rock’s at whoever they are protesting/rioting against since biblical times..Couldn’t stand anymore within the depths of the sand-referring to the giant desert known as the middle east. This is also a reference to the chemical warfare used between Iran and Iraq.
2: So don’t ask me who’s sane(Hussein)
When this rhyme was written there were 2 Hussein’s that were heads of state-Saddam Hussein in Iraq and also King Hussein in Jordan..This song came out around the same time as Desert Storm-The first U.S.-Iraq war.
