    My InterpretationI saw Jim Carroll perform this song several times in the 1980s and every time he did, it sent chills down my spine.
    As nearly everyone knows, Jim was often addicted to heroin and was on and off several times. But he understood the attraction of heroin all too well and this song was about his addiction.
    As he wrote: What you get when you open your door
    What you get is just another injection
    And there's always gonna be one more
    With just a little bit less until the next one
    Unfortunately I had the same problem as Jim and the few times that we chatted, he could see it in me as if he could read me like a book. We both knew that death could be just one injection away.
