I very nearly lost a dear friend of mine to heroin addiction years ago, and every time I hear this song I think of him. This is a very literal description of Kiedis's own battle with heroin & his memory of "drawing" blood with a needle under a bridge in the City Of Angels. Catchy, yes. But also a very visceral song.
