"Idiot Stare" as written by and Michael James Edwards....
I played with the fire
Stared at the light, screamed at the pain
Pushed to the centre
Took no advice, waited in vain
I questioned it too
Thought about me, thought about you
The corruption between us
The power and lies, dreams come true
I don't know if I care
I can't feel, I can't speak, I can't think
Caught in an idiot stare
I won't let it go
Hold it to me, it's mine to the end
A shadow that hugs me
My black dog, my enemy friend
I don't know if I care
I can't feel, I can't speak, I can't think
Caught in an idiot stare

    General CommentI'm thinking it's about a situation where you're in a relationship where you're so intent on keeping it going that you're not thinking straight. You're not feeling or thinking, just reacting, holding on and keeping up appearances to the point of idiocy.
