Album: Promised Land (1994)
  • In an interview with Kerrang, lead guitarist Chris Degarmo detailed the ideas behind the song: "'Damaged' is more of a look at psychoanalysing childhood baggage. The scars of childhood, the pleasures and pain of childhood, and the imprint it leaves on our minds as we grow older."
  • Lead singer and co-wringer Geoff Tate explained in a short description on the album's accompanying CD-ROM: "That's really what 'Damaged' is about. It's recognizing where I've come from as a person, what shaped me, and I guess through finding out who you are as a person or where you've been, kind of helps you figure out where you gonna go."
