How can we bridge the path from dark to light
If we live like the rest of them?
Can we portray his love?
We are the Window
What we do is for you
Can we be your hands?
Burn these walls to the ground!

Let your light shine through this veil of darkness
Burn these walls!

Let your light shine through
Cause we are the Window
We must set our own hearts
Straight to lead the weak
We give ourselves to you oh Father
To see the truth within in your hands
Oh God take it all
Fill my lungs
Give me life
We were hollow men
We were hollow men
