"Stare" as written by and Jason/clark Smith....
On her death bed
Staring at the moon
Serenity devoured by the demons in bloom
She said
?I wish I could see heaven father but I have sinned
These are cracks within my bones
These are bruises on my skin
Am I right am I wrong
Give one reason to go on
I wish I was your perfect ten
I wish I could transcend

Do you just stare?
Would you take my hand?
Do you just stare?
Please take my hand
Don't just stare

You've shown no mercy
You've watched my pain
A gift-wrapped nothing is all you ever gave
A daughter cries
A brother runs
A mother screams in twisted tongues
A father hangs his head in shame
No one left to blame

Soon
She's gone so soon

    General CommentThis quote is from the band's official webpage.

    In "Stare,” Justin recalls the trauma of a childhood friend, who took her own life after years of sexual abuse. “I was 11 years old,” he says. “My granddad and I found her hanging from a tree. Her eyes were open. She used her dog’s leash and the dog was running around in circles beneath her feet. It was something that haunted me for a long time.”
