    It’s about being hooked on heroin and it’s saying don’t mess with a needle or a spoon or you might get hooked and ruin your life or it will end your life

    I believe the song was made before the plane crash because Ronnie is singing it......also referring to heroin.

    I always thought the meaning was LSD, windowpane. Because of the trip to the moon.

    I don't know anything about heroin,I always assumed it was referring to iv meth use. Guess technically it could be either one.

    possibaly something with the plane crash because the band is rumored to have been using herion which when using a needle required the use of a spoon. I think it was to discourage the use of herion and pay tribute to the lose of life at the same time
