"Stone in My Hand" as written by and Erik Schrody....
Ride with the devil, hide with the lord
I got no pistol, ain't got no sword
I got no army, ain't got no land,
Ain't got nothing but the stone that's in my hand
Stone in my hand, stone in my hand
Ain't got nothing but the stone that's in my hand

You say you want a revolution, well get on board
We'll start a new crusade; we'll start a holy war
Don't need no orders, don't need no plan
I don't need nothing but the stone that's in my hand

Stone in my hand, stone in my hand
I don't need nothing but the stone that's in my hand
Stone in my hand, stone in my hand
I don't need nothing but the stone that's in my hand

You build your fighter jets, you drop your bombs
You kill our fathers, you kill our moms
You kill our brother and our sisters, and our uncles and our aunts
Still I'm fighting with the stone that's in my hand

Stone in my hand, stone in my hand
Still I'm fighting with the stone that's in my hand
Stone in my hand, stone in my hand
All the love that's in my heart and the stone that's in my hand

Blood runs in the gutters, smoke fills the sky
Every son that suffers, every mother cries
So if you've had enough and you're ready for your stand
I'll be waiting with the stone that's in my hand

Stone in my hand, stone in my hand
I'll be waiting with the stone that's in my hand
Stone in my hand, stone in my hand
All the love that's in my heart and the stone that's in my hand

    Song MeaningI might be wrong. But to me it just seems like as if he feels like he's against something(more than likely the war) that is bigger than him. But regardless he feels he's gonna fight against with the little bit he has. (stone in my hand) And he's hoping he can get others to help him as well.
    (So if you've had enough and you're ready for your stand) It's an awesome song as well.

    Song MeaningTo understand the song we must first look at the words very close.

    Ride with the devil, hide with the Lord <- Do evil but hide among the sheep
    I got no pistol, ain't got no sword <- I am a unarmed man and no threat to anyone
    I got no army, ain't got no land <- I am of no importance , and have no power.
    Ain't got nothing but the stone that's in my hand <- All I have literally is a stone in my hand

    We will skip the rest of the lyrics cause if you still don't understand the song this should help.
    Blood runs the gutters, smoke fills the sky <- War, perfect description of war.
    Every son that suffers, every mother cries <- The EVERYONE suffers that is involved in war!
    So if you've had enough and you're ready for your stand <- Make the last stand to stop the war and violence.
    I'll be waiting with the stone that's in my hand <- He will be armed with the stone in his hand.

    The song is about how the governments control peoples lives forces people to suffer die and fight for no reason. The people are real on both sides and are generally non violent people "With no army, and no pistol" , and many times to rebel or to fight off the suppressing government children, men, and women will pick up stones and fight back with only thing they have against tanks and bombs.

    Everlast doesn't hide the meaning, it tells a story.. a story of truth and injustice...

    Watch the music video again... and stop and think ... isn't the USA in IRAQ cause they invaded and bombed it ... while children throw stones? militarycity.com/iraq/…
    Propaganda isn't the truth and everlast is about the TRUTH.
