In a hired car she will come to England from the sea
And as the tide flows the London snows will come.
And from the skyline shines the lies of the government's singular history
So in a hired world she will buy a gun

And she will come from India with a love in her eyes
That say oh how my dark star will rise
In rented gear two thousand years we waited for a man
But with a tattooed tit she'd die for us all tonight.
And she will come from India with a gun at her side,
Or she will come from Argentina
With her cemetery eyes that say
Oh, how my dark star will rise,

And she will rise.

    Jesus is a black woman?! Strangely enough, this was a recurring motif in 1994: "Love Spreads" by the Stone Roses also suggests this.

    This is so beautiful. Suede reminds me of a when I was 16-17.

    Sounds like some sort of revenge for mistreatment by the British government? India was under British rule for quite some time, and Argentina has the Falklands. The line about the government's lies would seem to confirm this.
