Amir Of The Desert
Coal Chamber Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I am Amir of the desert
I fly come run through you
To ascend in the nighttime I brings the camel
And I've come to rock you, eh
lllllllpa lllllpa lllllllpa lllllpa lllllpa llllllpa
Come to my tent
I'm gonna circumsize you




Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Coal Chamber's "Amir Of The Desert" describe, through vivid and provocative imagery, the singer's role as a ruler or powerful figure in the vast empty expanse of the desert. He declares that he can move quickly and stealthily through the terrain, and that he comes bearing a camel that will aid him as he ascends in the darkness. The singer seems to be emphasizing his preeminence in this vast landscape and his ability to wield power over others.


The final lines of the song, "Come to my tent / I'm gonna circumsize you," are particularly striking and unsettling. They suggest that the singer is not only a powerful figure, but that he is also capable of sadistic and violent acts. The imagery of circumcision was commonly associated with ancient Middle Eastern tribal cultures and can represent both initiation and punishment. It is possible that the singer is asserting his dominance over those who he perceives as weaker or who have challenged his authority.
