A National Acrobat - Black 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 got to believe me


I'm talking to you


Well I know it's 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
