A National Acrobat
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 me
I'm talkin' 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 tryin' 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, haha
