"My Heroine" as written by and Shane Told....
The drugs begin to peak
A smile of joy arrives in me
But sedation changes to panic and nausea
And breaths starts to shorten
And heartbeats feel softer

You won't try to save me!
You just want to break me!
You're leaving this way!
You taunt my heart, a sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times that I was lost and depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroin!

You won't leave me alone!
Tears of my heart turn to stone!
You're leaving this way!

You taunt my heart, a sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times I was lost an depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroin!

I bet you laugh, at the thought of me thinking for myself (myself)
I bet you believe, that I'm better off with you than someone else
Your face arrives again, all hope I had becomes so real
But under your covers more torture than pleasure
And just past your lips there's mores anger than laughter
Not now or forever will I ever change you
I know that to go on, I'll break you my habit!

You taunt my heart, a sense I never knew I had
I can't forget
The times when I was lost and depressed from the awful truth
How do you do it?
You're my heroin!

I will save myself!

    General CommentI don't think for any song there is a right or wrong answer, unless it comes straight from the songwriter.

    But personally, I think, based on the lyrics "Under your covers more torture than pleasure" and "I'll break you my habit" that it's about a girl, but not a girl who changed his life for the better. I think maybe it's a girl who he was really into and then she got hooked on drugs and tried to get him on it too, and the "sense I never knew I had" was how he felt when he was on Heroine.

    I think that the song is, like SheepShirts said, supposed to be both about the drugs and the girl, hence "My Heroine." But since he talks like he's talking to a person and talks about "the drugs begin to peak" that it is most definitely about both.
