Yeah, maybe you’re onto something there. It occurs to me that “zane” rhymes with “cane”. Cane Hill was the name of the psychiatric hospital that David’s brother Terry was a patient at. It was also represented on the Mercury cartoon cover of the TMWSTW album.
Not only that but when this was discussed a while back someone mentioned that Cane means dog in Italian so by saying open the dog, he could be saying to open the doors to the institution and let out his brother *and im not taking credit for coming up with that interpretation of the lyrics*
