Just four songs and five references:

Egypt
Precious Angel/Slow Train Coming - "But there's violence in the eyes, girl, so let us not be enticed / On the way out of Egypt, through Ethiopia, to the judgment hall of Christ"

Neighborhood Bully/Infidels - "Every empire that's enslaved him is gone / Egypt and Rome and even the great Babylon"

Ethiopia
Precious Angel/Slow Train Coming - "But there's violence in the eyes, girl, so let us not be enticed / On the way out of Egypt, through Ethiopia, to the judgment hall of Christ"

Libya
Got My Mind Made Up/Knocked Out Loaded - "Well, I'm goin' off to Libya / There's a guy I gotta see / He's been living there three years now / In an oil refinery"

Mozambique
Mozambique/Desire - "I'd like to spend some time in Mozambique"
