Staind biographyStaind biography (read more)
Staind is an alternative metal band formed on November 24, 1995 in Springfield, Massachusetts, United States. After meeting through friends and covering pop hits of the day in smalltime clubs for a year and a half, Staind self-released their debut album, Tormented, in November 1996, citing influences in brutal latin thrash metal. Until recently, the album was difficult to obtain, as only four thousand copies were originally sold. Since then, the band's official website has released the album to ...

@ It's Been A While

It's been awhile
Since I couldn't
Hold my head up high

It's been some time since last using drugs

And it's been awhile
Since I first saw you

Awhile since first seeing drugs

And it's been awhile
Since I could stand
On my own two feet again

Awhile for him to get clean and now able to stand on his own feet

And it's been awhile
Since I could call you

Now clean he believe he can call an ex because its been awhile since last using drugs

And all the things I can't remember
As ****ed up as it all may seem
The consequences that are rendered
I stretch myself beyond my means

He is explaining or trying to explain to his ex which he now has called there's so much he can't remember while using drugs and it has cause negative consequences mostly saying stretched beyond my means not only meing money but being able to do drugs and be with his lover at the same time the two can only coexsists for so long.He couldnt do both anymore he was stretched beyond his mean

And it's been awhile
Since I could say
That I wasn't addicted

He still has his ex on the phone and she is actually listening this time since for the first time he is being honest.

It's been awhile
Since I could say
I loved myself as well

He is saying he has always loved her throughout his drug use but somewhere during he stopped loving himself and now clean and trying to reconnect he actually is liking what he sees in the mirror. He's getting his life back together.

And it's been awhile
Since I've gone and
****ed things up
Just like I always do

He's been able to keep his addicting in check and has actually made sure his life truely back on track before running and calling his ex. Now taking an edcauted guess based on the next lines , he is clean , made contact with his ex , and has reconnected, they are back together. He has come back to the man he use to be. He is happy.

And it's been awhile
But all that ****
Seems to disappear
When I'm with you

Now which happens to many if not most addicts who have successfully returned to the person who they, friends, family, and significant others use to know can not keep the act up. I say act because of the above lines.. If it wasn't an act, a mirage, flat out lies then everything he accomplished getting clean, life in order, ex back in life, then ill repeat the lines

And it's been awhile
But all that ****
Seems to disappear
When I'm with you

He is saying its been awhile for using drugs and now using drugs everything accomplished reguarding fixing himself, being clean ,and ex back , he referes to saying all that shit disappears when I'm with you meaning using drugs again. His clean life, holding head high, his girlfriend is just shit and he knows it all seems to disappear when he is using.


And everything I can remember
As ****ed up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered
Have gone and ****ed things up again

He has relapsed and he can remember how he just gotnhisnlife back .
It's fucked up flat out fucked up . The consequences is losing his life and girlfriend again. Assuming a promise was made and it was broken. He has used and fucked everything up again.

Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away
Just one more peaceful day

He is realizing he actually has gone and fucked things up again . He doesn't know why , wants fucking up to go away , and is basically wishing for one more peaceful day with his girlfriend before fucking up again .

It's been awhile
Since I couldn't
Look at myself straight

He has lost everything again and is using drugs again more than likly heavily

And it's been awhile
Since I said, "I'm sorry"

He's using and realizes he has been distant from his love again and hasn't said sorry for awhile. But this isn't a true sorry on his own two feet he's heavily using and sadly just saying sorry for continuing to fuck up

And it's been awhile
Since I've seen the way
The candles light your face

Many users use candles to ready there drugs. He is talking in the third person. The candles light his own face. Sadly it's the excitement he feels knowing he is about to use drugs.

And it's been awhile
But I can still remember
Just the way you taste

It's been awhile since using drugs iv. But he still remembers just the way you taste

And everything I can remember
As ****ed up
As it all may seem to be
I know it's me
I cannot blame this on my father
He did the best he could for me

He's high right now he knows everything he has ruined in his life is his own fault . He isnt blaming anyone for his drug use anymore. He knows its his fault. And truly this is actually a big step in staying clean. No longer blaming anyone but yourself

It's been awhile
Since I couldn't
Hold my head up high
And it's been awhile
Since I said, "I'm sorry"

He's using very heavily basically outnof control. Has lost all self respect. He can't hold his head up any more . Again knowing he's fucked it all up he's just saying sorry to say sorry no meaning behind it.

Okay so I've known the meaning to these lyrics for a long time and I'm tired of everyone saying its a love song only or only about drugs. The song is about addiction mostly and what it will cost you in you life. It's also about how trying to regain who you once were before drugs and actually getting it back but then giving in to the addict way. So the song is a sad love song and how addiction will take everything away. Love and drugs do not mix . Truely a great song and now you know the true story enjoy and say sorry and mean it most of us cannot

It is interesting that many of their songs contain religious undertones. Rock on my friends!!

@ Comfortably Numb (Live Acoustic)

This song was originally sung by Pink Floyd. While this version (remake) of the song is decent, I have to give it to Pink Floyd for performing it the best!!! Listen to this version, then listen to the original version by Pink Floyd. I think you will find the original version by Pink Floyd to be better. Enjoy!!!!
