Track Name: Window
Open up the window to the darkness
Step into the wonder of your blindness
You will lose yourself
You will find yourself

If you want to know where your heart is
If you dare to know, then come on in
You will lose your soul
You will find it
Your will lose control
Never mind it

If you want to know
If you want to know
You must lose your soul
You must let it go

Admit yourself, your heart is black
No hiding now, no turning back
You're better off, trust me, you're truer here
It's dangerous and cold, so be aware

If you want to know
If you want to know
You must lose your soul
You must let it go
Come and save your life
Come and face your strife

Do you want to know?
Do you want to know?
Track Name: I Watched Satan Fall
I watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning
See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions
And over all the power of the enemy
And nothing, nothing will hurt you
Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this
That the spirits submit to you
But rejoice that your names are written in heaven

I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth
'Cause you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent
And have revealed them to infants
Yes, Father, for such was your gracious will
All things have been handed over to me by my Father
And no one knows who the Son is, except the Father
Or who the Father is, except the Son
And anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him

Blessed Are the eyes that see what you see
For I tell you that many prophets and kings
Desired to see what you see, but did not see it
And to hear what you hear, but did not hear it
Track Name: My Fortress
There I am in Jericho
I sit behind the barricade
In the distance I have made
When I see you coming close
I feel you threatening my world
My defenses start to fall

Then you tear down my fortress, my fortress
You tear down my fortress, my fortress

Here I thought you were my friend
Then you come charging at my door
I can hide from you no more
Well, I guess this is the end
But then I see it on your face
We can love no other way

So you tear down my fortress, my fortress
You tear down my fortress, my fortress
You tear down, you tear down
You tear down my fortress, my fortress

My fortress...
Track Name: Certavi et deperii (I Have Fought and Fallen)
Give me the questions to my life
So tired of answers and being right
I don't know what it's like
To attend other sides
I defend and refuse to let go

It's time to receive you into my life
To relieve my soul of this lie
And to love you, brother

I've played this game for thirty years
I've fought and conquered, but still no nearer
To the love I would find
If I let myself die
Am I finally willing to lose?

It's time to receive you into my life
To relieve my soul of this lie
And to love you, brother

It's time to love my brother...
Track Name: Far More Wonderful
You say you're near
That you'll come and drive away my fear
But you know my thoughts
You see into my deepest parts
And, oh, my anxious soul
Keeping me from letting go
And, oh, this binding fear
Won't you come deliver me from here

Rejoice, let go
Again I say rejoice, my soul
Give in, give thanks
Lift up your heart, your hands, your face
For peace comes from the skies
Receive it as the sun arrives
And leave your chains behind
It guards your heart, if frees your mind

And it's far more wonderful
Far more wonderful than I could know
Yes, it's far more wonderful
Your peace is far more wonderful than I could know
Yes, it's far more wonderful
Far more wonderful than I could know
Yes, it's far more wonderful
Your peace is far more wonderful, far more wonderful

Be not afraid...
Track Name: Christ As A Light
Christ, as a light illumine and guide me
Christ, as a shield overshadow me
Christ under me, Christ over me
Christ beside me, on my left and on my right

Be in the heart of each to whom I speak
And be in the mouth of each who speaks to me

This day be within me
This day be without me
Lowly and meek, yet all powerful

Christ, as a light illumine and guide me
Christ, as a shield overshadow me

Christ under me, Christ over me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ within me, Christ without me...
Track Name: Sanctus
Holy, holy, holy Lord
God of power and might
Heaven and earth are full of your glory
Hosanna in the highest

Blessed it he who comes in the name
Comes in the name of the Lord
Heaven and earth are full of your glory
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna in the highest
