This demo inevitably turned into ‘Heaven’ on ‘NINE’ – blink-182 album. It was a small piece of a 45 minute jam / writing session with my friend Chris Greatti. The rest is history.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Mark talked a little more about the song:
[S]tarkly different to “Heaven,” a meatier track written about the 2018 mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California. “It means a lot to me personally,” Hoppus says. “What started off as a song about broken hearts became a song about living in America in 2019.”
