When you're feeling low
Hypodermic's where you go
When you're with yourself
You wish you could be someone else

Can't you see like you saw anymore
Can't you feel like you felt before
Can't you face anything anymore
When life's a waste
Run away
Your life's a waste
Run away

Once you get a ride
Doesn't matter where you lied
Once you shoot it in
Doesn't matter who you've been
You're reaching in but you don't know where to begin
All your dance and song won't matter when you're gone

    It's pretty much about how heroin ruins your life, and you're never the same after you do it: "Once you shoot it in, Doesn't matter who you've been"

    Basically, what BD007h said. Like this part: "All your dance and song won't matter when you're gone" Of course is talking about dying from drugs

    I think this isn't necessarily dying from it, but rather using drugs... "When life's a waste, runaway" kind of like about how you can escape your problems by shooting up. And of course, it fucks you up.

    I disagree, BD. I think they mean once "you" (a heroin addict) get a fix, nothing matters for a couple hours. They're not talking about a new user. And yes, they reference death in it, but the song's not just about death.

    It doesn't necessarly mean heroin, probably does, but IV drug use in general. I used to be a heroin junkie then went to rehab but just puting anything into a needle is a very addictive habit. I used to put anything I could get in a a syringe and shoot it, pills, coke, meth, heroin mainly. I'm not trying to be fiddle about the drug, I just remember the needle as a place to run with whatever you got to try and escape. It a good song but stirs up bad memories for me but does have a realy good point about where shooting drugs gets you.

    This song is about being an IV drug user. I realize that yes heroin was the most common when ignition came out... but realize this song fits now too with the widespread-ness of meth.
