"Cast the First Stone" as written by Joshua Moore, Eric Choi, Kyle Pavone, David Stephens, Andrew Glass and Lou Cotton....
I'll cast the first stone
Just to take the attention away from me
Anything to protect my reputation
Because I feel like that's all I have, all I know

What do I look like in their eyes?
Is it something desirable?
Or am I nothing?

What do I look like in their eyes?
What do I look like in their eyes?

I'll cast the first stone
Like I am the last one to blame
Just to shift their condemning eyes away
I'll cast the first stone
Like I am the last one to blame
Just to break their denouncing gaze

Why should I wait to hear their verdict?
Why do I care about who they think I should be?
Why should I wait to hear their verdict?
Why do I care about who they think I should be?

I have been bending over backwards for every reason but the right one
I have placed value on things that don't deserve it

Now what do I look like to those who matter?
Why did I waste all this time on the temporary?
It's too easy to take the wrong things to heart
Especially from those who seem to have misplaced their own

I won't say that I'll never cast another stone
Or that I am the last one to blame
But I want to stop living like anyone else's opinion
Of who I should be is a regulation in my life

I shouldn't forget there's a difference
Between living for other's approval and just living for others

    General CommentNear the beginning of the song he is saying that he has been putting others down first (casting the first stone) in order to protect his reputation. Then by the end he says he wants to "stop living like anyone else's opinion". The last lines are "I shouldn't forget there's a difference, Between living for other's approval and just living for others". Pretty straightforward good meaning. He's saying that casting the first stone is not living for others. Awesome song, probably listened to this album for like a month straight when it came out :D
