Call the neighbours
Cos its half past ten
I'm a fiery gal looking out for my man
Gotta tell you
I've got nothing left
My toes are frozen
But I love this town to death

I just can't remember mouth shapes
Or the way that your eyes
Stab at that empty space

Hold my hand and I will hold you up
I've got lots of pills and I like to eat them up
A stranger told me I'm his one true love
A night full of fingers
Jesus and Austria

What's the use of trying to find us
If you know damn well
You're just gonna give this up

Well you can take your teeth
And can I, Mr please
No you don't
You slug, you slug your priest
No you don't
You slug, you slug, your priest
Your priest
Your priest

Well you're contagious and I got no light
You showed me constellations in the grass one night
I would smile though I got no cash
I like and empty bottle and a Jesus on my dash

I just can't remember your movements
Just sometimes I feel
Like this is all there is.

    General Commenti think this song means that she lives in a small
    town,
    and she's fallen in love..but maybe because of religous rights "You slug, you slug your priest"

    they can't be in-love. and everyone is trying to break them up. and they need to be together in secret.

    General CommentI'm going to go out on a limb and say that the song is about drug us e= "I've got lots of pills and I like to eat them up"
    .
    I agree with the small town aspect which confines and leaves a person with nothing to do and no where to progress."Well you're contagious and I got no light" = Drugs and no opportunities.

    This instill of ignorance could be linked to the title(Jesus and Austria) because both (to a person of no education in a small christian town) exist to that person but there is no proof but they blindly agree without truly understanding " Stab at that empty space"
    if you ask an un-poorly educated person to locate Austria they will not be able to anymore than they can locate or explain their religion "What's the use of trying to find us" which causes the whole "You slug your priest" = ignorance
    "when your just gonna give this up"= usless to try to understand or progress

    And to escape the terrible fate that the person will inevitably face they turn to drugs: "I like and empty bottle"


    Or none of this has any relevance to anything and I'm just spewing trash and the song isn't meant to be interpreted!
