Lyric Thoughts with the Most Eurekas!

The lyrics to this song were inspired by a true story," the Stone Temple Pilots frontman recounted. "A girl was kidnapped and then later found tragically murdered back in the early part of the Nineties. So it gave me fuel to write the words to this song. However, this song is not about that, really; it's sort of a metaphor for a lost, obsessive relationship - Comment by Pa4057 2 years ago

I am also a recovering heroin addict. And what you said, is it EXACTLY how I felt about the song. In fact I felt as though he may have went through himself. Keep on fighting! I have 15 months clean. Heroin was a very sorry love affair. I always referred to it as that. - Comment by mksidler 1 year ago
Usafchic17 I really liked your original post you made, I know exactly what you mean. I would really appreciate having someone to discuss my heroin addiction with at certain times and finding anyone who actually understands and isn't judgemental of things is so difficult. I would love to be able to discuss things with you though and have someone to talk about the struggle with when it gets tough. You should email me at and I'll send you a link to my FB. I really look forward to hearing from you please : ) - Comment by MarkH87 3 years ago
I also took meaning from it relating to my addiction and my process of recovery after all the times I have given in and relapsed. The other thing about it also that fits this song well is once you are a full blown opiate addict that stuff literally takes precedence over any relationship and it becomes your only true love in life and will go above and beyond for our relationship to the drug and needle. Once you pick up a needle and try some really good product for the first time it is opening Pandora's Box and the way you see life is never the same after that, I'm clean now and go to AA/NA meetings every day and really am so over that poison, yet I'm still afraid I will relapse at some point and have cravings for it mentally and physically all the time. Especially when things are going shitty cause it's so much more tempting to turn to and always know in the back of my mind that it would make everything perfectly fine for the time being while I'm high, but then as it wears off I just slip right back into the same state I was in prior to my relapse but now even more resentful due to the relapse... It's a life or death struggle it truly is. - Comment by MarkH87 3 years ago
Wow couldn't agree more totally hits home to any recovering heroin addict. especially mean I can go on and on and on but you know what I mean - Comment by subdub79 3 years ago
Same here it's nice to know I'm not the only one either. When I would try to explain to friends what I thought the song meant they looked at me like I'm insane. - Comment by K.I.S.S.12 3 years ago
