As we sequenced the album, a faith or fear arc started to make itself present, starting with the first song sense of paranoia through to the spiritual surrender of the last track.
--- Does "faith or fear arc" mean that the first song could be about fear, another one about faith, the next one about fear again, next one about faith again etc....

It appears that the "faith or fear arc" is an arc bridging from the first track to the last track. In this instance: The sequence begins with the first song of "paranoia" (fear) and bridges (arcs) to the last song of "spiritual surrender" (faith).
There is a progression from fear to faith
