We Came As Romans – Cast The First Stone lyrics

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

    Actually we came as romans don't consider themselves a christian band considering not all the members are christian they just share the same beliefs as eachother and to those that respect them as a band and as people. Those so called christians are really being hypocrites saying don't pass judgement on to others its only god that judges well they are doing that to these guys because of their genre of music. These guys are sharing their beliefs with the world and there are still thoses idiots that criticize them and many other bands. We came as romans one of the greatest bands ever and I hope to hear more. Never judge others and don't let the thoughts and opions of others stop you from being you there's only one person in the worlds opion that matters and that's yours so you decide.
