Lyrics
She, she's my wild one
My heart is in panic
Her eyes look so manic now

She, little wild one
My heart is a chaser
She's strung out on razors now

She gave up on Jesus for living on Venus
All dressed up with nowhere to go
I'm drinking the Kool-Aid
I jumped on the grenade
Now that my mind's gonna blow

Hello

She, she's my wild one
My heart is in danger
From shadows and strangers now

She, little wild one
She's covered in angels
And demons and halos now

She gave up on Jesus for living on Venus
All dressed up with nowhere to go
I'm drinkin' the Kool-Aid
I jumped on the grenade
Now that my mind's gonna blow

Hello

She gave up on Jesus for living on Venus
All fucked up with nowhere to go
I'm drinkin' the Kool-Aid
I jumped on the grenade
Now that my mind's gonna blow

Hello

Little wild one
My heart is in danger
She's strung out on razors now
My heart is in danger
She's strung out on razors now
Song Meaning
A crazy girl, who the narrator is even a little bit afraid of, is threatening to steal his heart. We get the sense that he finds her wild nature refreshing, and is fascinated with her ways. The line "She gave up on Jesus for living on Venus" implies that his "wild one" recently changed her ways, and used to be more conservative. He's been spending time with her, and realizes that she scares the living shit out of him, but does so in a way that he finds beautiful. The narrator seems to want to find out more about her, but is cautious ("My heart is in danger").
