A play on the word heroin, but it was inspired by a gilded statue in Portland that I don’t remember the name of, so this seemed apropos.
Hello! Video Reprise
Couldn’t help myself, we just had all those nice instruments sitting there, and who doesn’t love a reprise.

I believe I had just gotten a copy of Reason at the time, which had fantastic evolving synth sounds. Play it loud… but not too loud. It’s a loud track. If you’ve ever listened to Medicine, you know what I was aiming for.
Song kept building. Rare attempt at sincerity in songwriting. Don’t hold me to it.
