Blind me, erase 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

I've waited here for you so long
I've waited here for you
For you

The feelings I once felt are now dead and gone
I've waited here for you for so very long
I've waited here for you so long
I've waited here for you so long
I've waited here for you so long
I've waited here for you
For you

    To me, it's about a woman. He liked her a lot for a long time, tried to get her to like him back, but eventually he had to move on. Unrequited affection only lasts for so long in a strong individual before they have to move on. The relationship to which they could have given birth, was dead before it ever started. Their relationship is stillborn.

    I think its very obvious he's not talking about an unborn child as he says, "blind me, erase what was, stillborn, i have become" i may be wrong, but because of the pain i've suffered in my life after i gave someone my heart, soul, and life... It seems to me he's talking about just that. He loved her, he gave her his heart, his soul, his life, he changed everything about himself for her but she took everything he gave her for granted therefore leaving him stillborn or dead inside. And then he goes on to say that the pain she caused him left him stillborn, but he learned his lesson as he waited for her for so long to come back to him, she never did, therefore any feelings he had, are dead and gone.

    Ah, gotta love Zakk!

    I think this song is about a guy who's been waiting so long for, oh, let's say his love, and the outcome of waiting so much time is a monotonous life. And when that "love" finally comes, he's so deep in nothingness that it's what he is--permanently as it seems.
