Track Name: Bartimaeus
When all I saw was the black of day
My eyes knew no other way
Desperately hoping for a glimpse
Of even a color dull as gray

I heard the shuffle of Your feet
Your gentle presence called to me
Though I knew I was unworthy
I threw my cloak aside because I knew with You I'd see

I want to see the oceans blue
See the red sky give way to the moon
I want to see the shining star
Guide the broken heart back to You.

The worth of faith in a beggar's hand
Puts gold to shame in a rich man's plan
What could I say as a broken man
So these eyes could understand

Through the crowd I begged and cried calling
For my eyes to see the face that saves
"Mercy mercy" I shouted shamelessly

I laid my heart bare don't care for myself
Though I can't see what's in front of me
"Mercy" I shouted so shameless
Track Name: Savior
What is the price to betray the hands that lift me up?
What is felt as I make the deal?
As I go through the actions knowing well what it is I’ve done,
My soul weighed down by thirty silver coins.

Oh, we’re all searching for our own path,
But we can’t seem to find what we need when we only search in our own lives.

Time’s running out, will you drink from this cup?
As this world comes to seize what has been so dear to me.
A figure of love has been hung on a tree
And I dare not open my weeping eyes to see.

A trial before the jury, the crowd follows a tainted path,
Innocence is wasted.
They try to find any reason to spill some blood,
Breaking the heart that loved them all.

Oh, we’re all searching for our own path,
But we can’t seem to find what we need when we only search in our own lives.

Time’s running out, will you drink from this cup?
As this world comes to seize what has been so dear to me.
A figure of love has been hung on a tree
And I dare not open my weeping eyes.
Time’s running out as we drink from this cup.
As this world comes to seize it becomes so clear to me.
A figure of love has been hung to bring
Strength to open these weeping eyes.

Savior, just say the words to me.
I am ready.
Track Name: Am I My Brother's Keeper?
No, you refuse to let the words sink in as your scheme begins
So with your brother’s hand in yours you hold a heart dripping sin
You hide the intent to change the ground you stand to red as hate sinks in

When the blade you hold serves its purpose
Can you say it’s all worth fighting for?
You spend all your strength covering trenches
Filled with brothers you have taken from

No, you refuse to let the guilt sink in for all that you've done
So tainted that you couldn’t stop and see how far you’ve gone
Is there a chance that forgiveness can be found
For one so lost
Track Name: Some Kind of Ghost
Sing the words of this song, to what inspiration do I sing along
Bring the load I bear, my weary hands don’t seem so strong

Am I some kind of ghost to just fade away as You call my name?
You call my name.
As I reach out to know what fate awaits, what could You gain to call my name?

Lost the sound of Your voice, mesmerized by my own reflection
What was as solid as armor, became nothing more than a piece of fiction

Am I some kind of ghost to just fade away as You call my name?
You call my name.
As I reach out to know what fate awaits, what could You gain to call my name?

I know I’ve been hiding myself from a call of grace
Yet I can’t seem to throw away my shame and see Your face
You poured out all Your heart and covered me with blood and tears
Just for the moment a whisper would reach my failing ears
