Staind Lyrics


The band Staind has had the current line-up since 11/24/95.
We put out a self-released CD on 11/29/96. The 1st CD party
was an overwhelmingly great success with over 900 people in
attendance. We sold more than 200 CDs that night. During
the next year, we sold more than 2000 CDs while playing
gigs throughout New England with bands such as: Honkeyball,
Shed, Kilgore, GWAR, Far and God Lives Under Water.

The band's big break came October 23, 1997 when Staind
performed with the band Limp Bizkit at the Webster Theater

Review about Staind songs
What a song, its as bad as can. | Reviewer: Bill Bobby Bill
    ------ About the song This Is Beetle performed by Staind

I often listen to this song when I'm down, it really gets my spirits up, thanks beetle! *Jumps and high-fives beetle, only to realize he is a midget and completely misses and falls to the ground, followed by beetle laughing*

    ------ About the song Outside performed by Staind

This song hits home with me. Ive been through a lot of deep depression and this song helps remind me that it will all be ok. No matter how much you go through there will always be soneone you can talk to. Even if that person isnt someone you know. I heard a sad story about this song that just makes me sad every time I hear it. A boy heard this song and learned how to play it and one day his mother found him dead with a recording of him playing the song as his sort of suicide note. Just remember it only takes one friend or one person that cares to prevent suicide

Why??! | Reviewer: John the Christian
    ------ About the song Sober (Live Acoustic) performed by Staind

Loved this song... Until I read the lyrics. I don't see the point behind such defamation. Do us Christians a favor will you? Keep God out of your songs, and if you have to reference religion then put Muhammad's name in it instead. We all know you won't do that, someone would be out to ruin your day. Disappointed.

Dreams Or Drugs? | Reviewer: Adam Rock
    ------ About the song Comfortably Numb (Live Acoustic) performed by Staind

Hmmm...I dunno, there's a part of me that says this song could be talking about the need at one time in his (Aaron's or someone he knows) life about having dreams to do great things but have grown apart from them by letting "certain things in life get in the way." On the other hand, I look at these lyrics and think to myself when I read "There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon" I get the feeling that this song could be about letting drugs soften the pain of life. For the life of me, I honestly don't know, these are only my thoughts and maybe someone else can enlighten us eventually.

A Request? | Reviewer: Adam Rock
    ------ About the song Cross to Bear performed by Staind

My take on this:
I think this could be construed as a request for help only after recognizing enough defeat in his own life but there's an apprehensiveness from Aaron to not exactly want that help just yet. Perhaps a plea to God? Honestly, I don't know because I don't know what the band thinks about God.

We all have our own crosses to bear in our own lives. I know for me there's times when I think I can handle it all by myself. In the long run, I know I need God.

My Take On This | Reviewer: Adam Rock
    ------ About the song Outside performed by Staind

The ability to see through people for who they are and realize when they dump on you that you're not any better.

Aren't we all on the "outside" at times?

my ex cheated on me and i caught her | Reviewer: Michael
    ------ About the song Outside performed by Staind

Three years ago my ex and I joined the military and we going through basic training together at two different bases but we kept in touch like any couple would do. She was sent to fort Jackson in south Carolina for her basic training. After 6weeks of brutal basic training I graduated. I drove up to fort Jackson to her graduate rented a hotel room for the weekend went to pick her up from the base and brought her back to my hotel room. She said she was hungry I went out and bought some food and came back to see her having sex with another guy. That's what this song reminds me of.

The Truth | Reviewer: Adam Rock
    ------ About the song How About You performed by Staind

Who are you in this life? And what have you done to get yourself where you currently are? Who have you followed? And are you ready to be a leader to make things better in the world around you? So play the cards you're dealt in this life and make the world a better place. Hats off to Staind for following through on a very inspirational song.

You have the meaning completely wrong!! | Reviewer: ChelseA
    ------ About the song It's Been Awhile performed by Staind

People idk i u didnt realize this but the actual meaning of the song isnt about relationship issues its about the grief of being an ddict. He was addicted to heroin. " i cannot blame this on my father" it wouldnt make sense to blame love on your father he is talking about his addiction. "The way the candles light your face" (cooking heroin in a spoon) "its been awhile since i could look t myself straight" he is always high and cant even look in the mirror and see straight. I can relate to this very much but the song is about the struggles of being an addict and just messing up over and over instead of getting clean. No offense but i dont know how someone can relate to this song because of their relationship issues because the song is about the struggle of heroin not a relationship

Right in the feels... | Reviewer: Jami
    ------ About the song For You performed by Staind

My mom's mom died when my mom was a little kid. It really messed her up, and she was a terrible parent. I spent my whole childhood hating her and hating being a part of that family. She blamed all of her problems on us (her kids), never apologized *ever* for any of her wrongdoings, and kicked me out when I was 16 even though I hadn't done anything wrong. I came across this song shortly after that point, and it stuck with me. As I've gotten older and spent years trying to get over everything I went through, trying to make sure I'm healthy mentally and not going to pass that abuse on to kids of my own someday, I realized that she grew up without a mom, and had no idea how to be one. I'm now trying to learn to forgive her, but this song just reminds me what a dark place I was in back then, and I don't know if I'll ever really get over it.
