LYRIC

[Verse 1]
She's in my head again
She knows where I have been
I'm going down that road again
Hmm, hmm, hmm
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh
Uh-huh, uh-huh
She's in my bed again
She marks her fingerprints in my skin
I breathe her perfume in
And it burns like heroin
[Pre-Chorus]
Now she's in me
And I can't let her go

[Chorus]
And my bones are caving in
And she stole my faith again
And I wish you well
Oh, for the night
'Til you come again

[Verse 2]
She's in my veins again
But she knows that I'll bleed her out before I wake
Exhale her oxygen
She burns like heroin

[Pre-Chorus]
Now she's in me
And I can't let her go

[Chorus]
And my bones are caving in, oh
She stole my faith again
And I wish you well
Oh, for the night
[Bridge]
She's in my life again
But she won't ever win
And I wish you well
For the night
For the night

[Chorus]
My bones are caving in
She stole my faith again
I wish you well
For the night
For the night

About "Heroin"

This song uses both heroin as a metaphor for a toxic relationship and this relationship as a metaphor for a heroin addiction. Heroin is highly addictive and its users often experience multiple relapses on the path to recovery, and so is toxic relationship. It’s said to be incredibly painful, thus easy to fall back into old routines. In this song he both describes his experiences with falling back into a pattern of hooking up with an ex and its being a very toxic, addictive relationship, and also falling again into his addiction to heroin.

This song was not intended to make the album ‘Ok, I’m Sick’ and was requested by the label extremely last minute. That is why it is produced by Josh Katz instead of the album’s producer, Noah Shain.
