Track Name: Explosions in the Sky
Everyday I look for something to give my heart for
Cardboard cut-out life is through, there's got to be more
I can't hide behind the dark, it's all the same to you
I'll take your word under the rain, it's all I can do

How precious are Your thoughts about me
Like explosions in the sky
How wonderful, You've given me
A celebration in Your eyes

Everyday I look for someone to see right through me
The secrets of this life laid bare, and I'll be free
So search me out and know my heart and all its weakness
Take me on this path of life and I will see this through
Track Name: The Battle
I take on my sword and shield for the fight that lies before me
I put on my helmet for I know the One who I belong to
I put on my breastplate, it is mine but it don't come from me
I strap on my belt and leather boots for any ground beneath my feet

And I walk out in Your joy
And I hold my head up high
‘Cause I got Your strength inside of me
And my brothers by my side

But I'm holding fast to You
Yes I'm holding fast to You

And the battle it is hidden
It ain't fought between two men
And it's out there on the streets
And it's underneath my skin
Track Name: Eagles
Even the young get tired and stumble and fall
Even the strong and the brave will break down and crawl
You can take all your courage and still back down
Too many times I've been hit by the fading out

On eagles' wings I find myself
I'm through with trying to be someone else
On eagles' wings my hope is found
Soaring high above this rugged ground

So I wait...
Yes I wait...
I wait for you to call my name
I wait for you to capture me again

Only you can change the atmosphere
Only you so won't you come by here again
Yes I wait for You to come
Track Name: Praise the Lord O My Soul
Praise the Lord, O my soul
Everything within me
Will praise His holy Name

Sing a new song
To the Lion and the Lamb
Bring your whole life
Lay it down at His command

Won't you wake up, oh my soul

(He is faithful, He is worthy of your life
So lay it all down and hand it over
Bring everything that's inside
To the King of kings
On your knees, on your knees man
So get down,
Get down at the foot of the King
And hand it over to Him)

(I will praise I will praise
And I will lift up my eyes to the king of Kings
I will lay it all down
So I'm handing it all over to you
And now I'm yours, and you are mine)
Track Name: Hidden
I look into the eyes of love
Who loves me more than I could know
I give my heart to a greater heart
That is stronger, sweeter than my own

I'm bruised and broken
But your love covers me and makes me whole
You undo me
But it's okay, love sees me through and through
Love sees me through and through

I'm found hidden in You
I'm found hidden in You
I'm found hidden, hidden in You

I'm found hidden in You
Seated with you
I'm found hidden, hidden in You
Track Name: Turn My Gaze Up
I turn my gaze up
To the heavens where You are
Eyes of fire
Bright lights and shining stars are in Your hands

You're the finest of the fine
Leaving earthly doubts and fears behind, there's no room up here
For You are terrifying, or satisfying
I can't decide, how can I stand before -
What can I say to You?
Nothing else compares to You O God
Nothing can stop You
Nothing can shock You
You are Heaven's Champion, Heaven's Champion

In a cloud of glory...
Track Name: Day He Comes Again
There will come a day, a day when all things fade away
A time when castles in the sand will crumble to the ground
Masks will be stripped down, the secrets of our hearts be known
All the kingdoms that we've made replaced the day He comes again!

Eventually all the things we so chased after will cease
All your highs and lows will culminate in who you follow
Justice will be done the mountains and the valleys levelled out
We'll be laying down our plastic crowns, the day He comes again!

The sun and the stars will make way for You
All that we are will be made new
Under the Son we'll have all we need
We will be one, we will be free, we will be free

There will come a day, a day when all things fade away
The sky will fold itself in when time is growing old
The One behind all things will come back for His bride and everything
Face to face we'll be remade to reign the day He comes again!
Track Name: Beloved
My beloved, she burns in My heart
I'd cross the skies for her
She is rugged but I am her Lover
My love will make her whole
Yes My love will make her whole

Fire, fire
Waters can't quench this love
Fire, fire
Waters can't quench this love

My beloved like silver and gold
She's precious in My hands
She's corrupted but I washed her clean
Now beautiful she stands
Oh beautiful she stands

My beloved, I take all the punches
I win you back today
Bruised and broken yet nothing can stop it
I've thrown it all away

My beloved, she burns in My heart
I crossed the skies for her
She is rugged but I am her Lover
My love will make her whole
Yes My love will make her whole
...My love has made her whole
Track Name: Better Than This
Oh the bruised and broken hearted
Where are You now?
Oh the blind those held captive
Where are You now?
Oh the lost and forgotten
Where are You now?
Oh the bruised and bitter
Where are You now?

I know You're better than this
So won't You come on down
We need You now

Oh the bruised and broken hearted
Where are You now?
Oh the blind those held captive
Where are You now?
Oh the lost and forgotten
Where are You now?
Oh the poor and the downtrodden
Where are You now?
Track Name: Hanging Here (Simplify)
Hey there, what you looking for?
Hey there, what you chasing after?

The world is searching for a hope and turning inside out
They're chasing after trophies and they're fighting for a crown
While we're hanging here, at the bottom of the world
We're just hanging here, at the top of everything

Hey there, what you hoping for?
Hey there, why you rushing like you do?

The world is turning upside down, the lowest are on top
The highest are brought down and brought back up again by love
While we're hanging here, at the bottom of the world
We're just hanging here, at the top of everything

We need to simplify, simplify, simplify our lives
Simplify, simplify, simplify our lives
Track Name: Beyond the Skyline
I've been treading on Your rooftops
Running through the rain drops
Breathing in Your love
I've been handing it all over
Eyes wide open
The spell that was over me is broken

I've been reaching for Your skies
Thirsty for new wine
I throw myself on You
I've been trading in my story
Broken for glory
I step in time, I step in time with You

Beyond the skyline
I find my home way
Captured by You, free to move
Beyond the skyline
I find my home way
I go where Your feet take me

I've been watching
I've been waiting
Searching for a sign of new life
Jack-in-the-box
Back where I came from
All in a whisper I hear You call my name
