"My little needle is basically a song about trying to find your other half. During the writing of the whole Goddamnit record, I was doing a lot of soul searching, with risk of sounding cheesy. I was drinking really heavily and I think my ideas were really misdirected. There were things that I was doing at the time that were concerning people that were close to me, and concerning myself. My little needle, a lot of people thought, “Well, it’s a song about a hypodermic needle” or, “It’s a song about drugs.” My little needle is actually about finding a needle in a haystack; trying to find true love, I guess is the basis of that song."
