"Heroin Girl" as written by Art Alexakis, Ralph Scott Cuthbert and Craig Montoya....
I used to know a girl
She had two pierced nipples and a black tattoo
We'd drink that Mexican beer
We'd live on Mexican food
Yeah, I wish I could go back
Yes, back in time

Esther used to be the kind of girl that you would
Never leave
She'd do anything to give me what I need for my
Disease
She'd do anything

I can hear them talking in the real world
But they don't understand that I'm happy in hell
With my heroin girl
Yeah, with a heroin girl

Esther used to be the kind of lover you would
Never leave
She'd do anything to give me what I need for my
Disease
She'd do anything

I can hear them talking in the real world
But they don't understand that I'm losing myself
In a white-trash hell
Lost inside a heroin girl
Yeah, with a heroin girl, yeah yeah

They found her out in the fields
About a mile from home
Her face was warm from the sun
But her body was cold
I heard a policeman say
Just another overdose
Just another overdose!

Esther used to be the kind of lover you would
Never leave
She'd do anything to give me what I need for my
Disease
She would do anything

    General CommentThis song is so great. It's the story about when Art was younger he lost his girlfriend to a heroin OD (I'm pretty sure). He also lost his brother to the same. When the cops were examining his brother, his mom heard them say "just another overdose." That line is so amazing, the power it has behind it, it makes you feel for Art because it wasn't just another overdose, it was a person with feelings and emotions that he looked up to.

    General Commentthis is about a girlfriend that art once had who OD'd on heroine. this song really is centered around the line where the cop says "just another overdose". this line pissed off art, so in the song he states how much he loved her and how happy she made him, despite her problems

    General CommentI used to know a girl...
    "She had two pierced nipples
    and a black tattoo
    We'd drink that Mexican beer
    We'd live on Mexican food"

    I went out with a girl with her nipples pierced, but she didn't like mexican food. :-( We would get into fights because i would get drunk on mexican beer and try to force feed her tacos... good times, good times.

    Great lyric though, and a cool song that gets my imagination going.

    General CommentThis song was actually a fictional story (there was no Esther) but it was based on the death of family, a girlfriend and friends. It's a great fucking song I love it, the chords and the way the guitar sounds is just so powerful and it really brings light to the lyrics. My favorite Everclear album is Sparkle and Fade it totally rocks, its really great post-grunge/grunge music

    General Commentsillybilly, thats fuckin hilarious.

    I'm sooo into this song, its awesome.

    I dont know, but i would guess that this is not a true story. Because would be too hardcore to write a song about a chicks nipple peircings when she was close to you and tragicly died. Could you see yurself doing that?
