A National Acrobat is the second track off of Black Sabbath's fifth album Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.


 I am the world that hides
 The universal secret of all time
 Destruction of the empty spaces
 Is my one and only crime
 I've lived a thousand times
 I found out what it means to be believed
 The thoughts and images
 The unborn child that never was conceived
 When little worlds collide
 I'm trapped inside my embryonic cell
 And flashing memories
 Are cast into the never ending well
 The name that scorns the face
 The child that never sees the cause of man
 The deathly darkness that
 Belies the fate of those who never ran
 You gotta believe, yeah
 I'm talking to you
 Well I know its hard for you
 To know the reason why
 And I know you'll understand
 More when it's time to die
 Don't believe the life you have
 Will be the only one
 You have to let your body sleep
 To let your soul live on
 I want you to listen
 I'm trying to get through
 Love has given life to you
 And now it's your concern
 Unseen eyes of inner life
 Will make your soul return
 Still I look but not to touch
 The seeds of life are sown
 Curtain of the future falls
 The secret stays unknown
 Just remember love is life
 And hate is living death
 Treat your life for what it's worth
 And live for every breath
 Looking back I've lived and learned
 But now I'm wondering
 Here I wait and only guess
 What this next life will bring
 Ha! Ha!
