She's Like Heroin Lyrics - System of a Down

Review The Song (21)



She's Like Heroin - System Of A Down

She’s like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I’m looking for some help
I need someone to save her ass

Chinese tricks in rooms
With ghosts of hooker girlie dudes

Me and heroin, maybe we can make some cash selling
ASS
Selling ass for heroin
ASS
Selling ass for heroin
ASS
Selling ass for heroin
ASS
Selling ass for heroin

She wants nothing more
but to be a little whore
He wants nothing less
But to wear a little dress

She’s like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I’m looking for some help

I need someone to make some cash selling
ASS
Selling ass for heroin
ASS
Selling ass for heroin
ASS
Selling ass for heroin
ASS
Selling ass for heroin

She’s like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I’m looking for some help
I need someone to save her ass

She wants nothing more
But to be a little whore
He wants nothing less
But to wear a little dress

She’s like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I’m looking for some help
I need someone to save her ass

Chinese tricks in rooms
With ghosts of hooker girly dudes
Me and heroin, maybe we can make some cash

She’s like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I’m looking for some help
I need someone to save my ass

He needs someone to save his... | Reviewer: Vince | 7/20/11

I think the song really means that the guy is selling himself for heroin. "She" is just himself disguised as a women. This part of him desperately wants to sell herself for drugs - she wants nothing more but to be a little whore. His true self feels guilty and ashamed about it - he wants nothing less but to wear a little dress - but can't change it, due to his addiction - she's like heroin for him.
If it was about a guy selling his girlfriend, he wouldn't say "I need someone to save her ass", I think. The last line, when it's suddenly "I need someone to save my ass", shows that he meant himself all along. The fact that he's selling ASS for heroin also somewhat shows the song's more about a guy than a girl (yeah, a girl could also sell her ass, but... you know what I mean). So he actually wants to save himself, but he can't fight his addiction to prostitute himself in women's clothing.
Anyway, great song, SOAD are amazing!

.... | Reviewer: ..... | 6/19/10

it reminds me of the movie requiem for a dream
they get addicted and then they do anything for the drug (including prostitution) but in this case i think he's the one most addicted....the girl just kinda likes the stuff about prostitution (she wants nothing more but to be a little whore) and he just does it for the drug but doesn't like it (he wants nothing less but to wear a little dress).
and then he finally sees his sotuation and wants to get out but it's too late and he can't find any help



just my opinion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/2/10

my take on it is that it's about prostitution for drugs, that's pretty apparent in "selling ass for herion" I think it's about a guy and a girl, the girl is prostituting to buy heroin, "she wants nothing more than to be a little whore" and a guy is jealous that he can't prostitute like she can (most likely is not gay and not trans and there's not as much demand for straight prostitutes) so he has to work for his drug money



Seen this in real life | Reviewer: Been There | 2/22/10

Ah, Shannon, you've got it a bit wrong. "He wants nothing less but to wear a little dress." There is nothing he wants less than that, means he doesn't want to do it. "She's like heroin, sipping through a little glass," communicates that when he looks at her, sipping from her glass, he sees heroin instead of the girl. So the song is about a guy prostituting a girl for heroin because he does not want to prostitute himself.



ahh! | Reviewer: Shannon | 12/8/09

I love this song but it is soo depressing. Some people are saying that its about a guy prostituting his girlfriend to get cash for heroin, but I think it's about him prostituting himself. The lines like
"He wants nothing less But to wear a little dress" refer to his transexuality and the final line "I need someone to save my ass" refers to his need for someone to save him from prostitution. I think he is saying "She" because he thinks of himself as a "she" and the 'like heroin' is how he feels when he is her. This is just my interpretation.



Deeper | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/21/09

It goes deeper than just the obvious meaning of a guy doing anything for heroin. Though I cant speak from experiance because ive never done drugs. they say the first time is just amazing than you spend the rest of your time trying to get that first high.
than your eventually just destroyed by it which is why I noticed that up till the vocalization bit it sounds sort of fun and amusing. than afterwords though he is singing the same exact words it sounds sort of somber and desperate. than at the end it just sounds completely miserable. which kind of describes the process to me. none the less still an amazing song. love SOAD!!!



to all you flammers | Reviewer: tom | 5/3/09

This song means a lot. It's about the drug-addicts that would do anything to get it, even if he needs force his girl to prostitute to get the cash for the heroin. The little dress part is probably also about him being a trans and selling his body for the same purposes. I really think that SOAD's lyrics are deep and meaningful.

thx



omg | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/7/07

this is so gay i hope some1 gets sued for this horrid song......jk lol one of there best songs besides lonley day.GOOD SONG ...but i got the parental edited version on accident:(



Addition | Reviewer: Travis | 7/29/07

If you didnt know many prostitutes are men in womens clothing or transexuals so that is what the line "he wants nothing less but to where a little dress" and yea its about a guy selling sex for smack.
