Lyric discussion by corich 

Lakeman - modern anti-Islamic sentiment in the USA didn't materialize on 9/11 - it goes back to the Iranian seizure of the US embassy in Tehran, the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut, probably beyond those events to the oil crises of the early 70's. Deliciosa's comment is plausible - but I think it's more a lonely song about a Muslim in the USA who disapproves of the shallow culture all around him.
