"Desperate" as written by and David Mullen Joy Williams....
One two three four
This is a war

Yeah yeah yeah I'm desperate
I'm going back again
Yeah I'm desperate

Going back in style
Going back a mile
Dirty heroin take it back a step
This is my arm this is my heart
This is the lie you promised to me

    General CommentThis song is one of the best less than two minute punk rock songs of the new millenium. Enough with that shit about how good songs are all long songs.
    The lyrics are about surviving heroin and not wanting to go back but feeling the urge. And hence 'being desperate and going back again' meaning just how addictive heroin really is. And Brody talks about how heroin promised her she'd get through her problems but she never did get through them, and she doesn't want to go back.
    This could also be written for Rose (Casper) because she ended up checking herself into rehab from an addiction.
    Whatever, it's about drugs and surviving them and not wanting to go through that mess again.
