  • I never thought you'd be a junkie because heroin is so passe.
    But today, if you think that I don't know about depression and emotional pain,
    You're insane, or you're a fool who hasn't paid attention to a word that I say.
    In a way, I can't help but feel responsible, I always knew that you were insane
    With your pain, but I never thought you'd be a junkie because heroin is so passe, hey.

    Heroin is so passe, hey.
    Herion is so passe, hey, hey.
    Aaaah

    So passe nowadays.
    You never thought you'd get addicted, just be cooler in an obvious way
    I could say, shouldn't you have got a couple piercings and decided maybe that you were gay,
    In a way, I can't help but feel responsible, I always knew that you were insane
    With your pain, but I never thought you'd be a junkie because heroin is so passe, hey.

    Heroin is so passe, hey.
    Herion is so passe, hey, hey.
    Ah ah ah ah, aaah, aaah, aaaah
    Ah ah ah ah, aaah, aaah, aaaah
    Ah ah ah ah, aaah, aaaaaaah

    Heroin is so passe, hey.
    Heroin is so passe, hey
    Heroin is so passe, hey, hey.
    Ah ah ah ah, aaah, aaah, aaaah,
    Ah ah ah ah, aaah, aaah, aaaah,
    Hey hey hey hey heyyy, heyyy, heyyyyy Writer/s: COURTNEY A TAYLOR
