Lyrically, Staind is pretty dark at times. Obviously the lead singer Aaron Lewis writes about what He's been through. I can relate to a lot of the songs because of my addictions earlier in my life. This is a song from Staind titled Reality.

The lights are on but you're not home
You've drifted off somewhere alone
Somewhere that's safe, no questions here
A quiet place where you hide from your fears
Sometimes when you're out of rope
The way to climb back up's unclear
The walls you build around yourself
I guess they also keep you here
Are you afraid of what they think?
Whoever "they" happen to be
Or are you hiding from the scars of your own reality?
So you sedate and drown in vain
You've got a pill for every day
A suit and tie to mask the truth
It's ugly head is starting to show through
The monster you're feeding, your lack of perception
The things you will do to fulfill addictions
The light at the end of the tunnel is closing
What is it that you're so afraid of exposing
You'd give it all up for what's there for the taking
Whatever it takes to keep your hands from shaking
The same things you're thinking might make you feel better
The same things that probably got you here
