A National Acrobat Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 equal worlds collide
I'm trapped inside my embryonic cell
Unpacking memories
All trapped inside this never-ending well
The name that scars the face
The child that never sees the course of man
The deathly darkness that
Belies the fate of those who never ran

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

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 a lonely death
But, there's no suffering

Songwriters
FRANK IOMMI, WILLIAM WARD, TERENCE BUTLER, JOHN OSBORNE
