I get all numb
When she sings, it's over
Such a strange numb
And it brings my knees to the earth

And God bless you all
For the song you saved us

You're the same, numb
When you sing it's over
Such a strange numb
It could bring back peace to the earth

So God bless you all
For the song you saved us, oh
For the hearts you break
every time you moan

I get all numb
We're the same, numb
And it brings our knees to the earth

So God bless you all
For the song you saved us, oh
For the hearts you break
every time you moan
And God bless you all on the earth

    My InterpretationI think it's written from a fan's point of view, who's been through a break-up and has an easier time dealing with it because of the band's music.

    "I get all, numb
    When she sings it's over
    Such a strange numb
    And it brings my knees to the earth"

    His significant other breaks up with him, and his world seems to fall apart.

    "And God bless you all
    For the song you saved us

    You're the same, numb
    When you sing it's over
    Such a strange numb
    It could bring back peace to the earth

    So God bless you all
    For the song you saved us, oh
    For the hearts you break, every time you moan"

    He relates to the lament expressed in Deftones' music. He understands that pain perfectly, and if everyone could experience that feeling, of being united in the darkest circumstances, perhaps we could find peace.

    "I get all, numb
    We're the same numb
    And it brings our knees to the earth

    So God bless you all
    For the song you saved us, oh
    For the hearts you break, every time you moan
    And God bless you all on the earth"

    Could be another thank you to, or from the band. Chino may be saying that fans confirming their shared experiences does as much for him as the band's music does for them, or an entire audience could be echoing the initial speaker's sentiments ('our knees to the earth', rather than 'my knees'). That's up in the air.
