Epiphany ~ Staind

Staind formed on November 24, 1995 in Springfield, Massachusetts. After meeting through friends and covering KoRn, Rage Against the Machine, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains, among others, in smalltime clubs for a year and a half, Staind self-released their debut album, Tormented, in November 1996, citing influences Pantera and Sepultura. 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 meet the demand from fans.

During this time, Staind played a show with Limp Bizkit. When Fred Durst saw the controversial cover of the group’s debut album, he tried to have the band kicked off the bill, but when he saw the band’s live show, he changed his tone and befriended them, later singing backup on Aaron Lewis’s live, original version of the future Staind song “Outside.” Durst was one of the executive producers for Dysfunction and Break the Cycle. He also directed a few videos for the band later on.

Your words to me just a whisper
Your face is so unclear
I try to pay attention
Your words just disappear

‘Cause it’s always raining in my head
Forget all the things I should have said

So I speak to you in riddles
‘Cause my words get in my way.
I smoke the whole thing to my head
And feel it wash away
‘Cause I can’t take anymore of this,
I wanna come apart,
or dig myself a little hole
Inside your precious heart

‘Cause it’s always raining in my head
Forget all the things I should have said

I am nothing more than
A little boy inside
That cries out for attention,
But I always try to hide
‘Cause I’ll talk to you like children,
Though I don’t know how I feel
But I know I’ll do the right thing
If the right thing is revealed.

‘Cause it’s always raining in my head
Forget all the things I should have said

About DJ Allyn

DJ Allyn is a burned out radio guy who went on to become a burned out sound engineer for a few Seattle area grunge bands in the 1980s and 1990s. Left the madness of worldwide tours with bands, cleaned up my act and went into the relative sanity of sound engineering for television series. Currently working as the Director of Sound for a television series being filmed in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I am always on the lookout for interesting videos, old music, and fun.
