Blind me, erased what was
Stillborn I have become
The feelings I once felt are now dead and gone
I've waited here for you for so very long
So empty, just a shell of a man
Stillborn, this I understand
The feelings I once felt are now dead and gone
I've waited here for you for so very long

    Song MeaningActually, the real story behind the song is,
    they were in the recording studio when Zakk decided he wanted to add another song to the list so that night he left and he and the drummer sat around and "threw some shit that sounded good, together" he said it took them 20 minutes to put the wholeguitar and drum part together. then they just sdded some lyrics.
    there was no REAL meaning to this song.
    all this came from an interview saw on a dvd form guitar world.

    so thats the real meaning to the song.

    General CommentIt's about someone who waited for so long for their perfect someone that all that's left after waiting so long is an empty shell of a being when they finally showed up.

    General CommentYou all are wrong. Zakk has said that this song was about a buddy of his who is severely depressed. He's given up on all forms of life, he's just living and nothing more. He doesn't care..

    So empty, just a shell of a man
    Stillborn, this I understand
    The feelings I once felt are now dead and gone

    Pretty obvious now, eh? I worshop Zakk and all things Zakk. Trust me, that's exactly what this song is about.

    General CommentWell, that's understandable, but listen to his music. He's rooted pretty deep in some form of religion, whether he follows it or not
