Acrobat

And I'd join the movement 
If there was one I could believe in 
Yeah I'd break bread and wine 
If there was a church I could receive in

Don't believe what you hear 
Don't believe what you see 
If you just close your eyes 
You can feel the enemy 
When I first met you girl 
You had fire in your soul 
What happened your face of melting in snow? 
Now it looks like this 

And you can swallow 

Or you can spit 
You can throw it up 
Or choke on it 
And you can dream 
So dream out loud 
You know that your time is coming 'round 
So don't let the bastards grind you down 

No, nothing makes sense 

Nothing seems to fit 
I know you'd hit out 
If you only knew who to hit 
And I'd join the movement 
If there was one I could believe in 
Yeah I'd break bread and wine 
If there was a church I could receive in 
'Cause I need it now 

To take the cup 

To fill it up 
To drink it slow 
I can't let you go 
I must be an acrobat 
To talk like this 
And act like that 
And you can dream 
So dream out loud 
And don't let the bastards grind you down 

Oh, it hurts baby 

What are we going to do? Now it's all been said 
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read 

And I must be an acrobat 

To talk like this 
And act like that 
And you can dream 
So dream out loud 
And you can find 
Your own way out 
And you can build 
And I can will 
And you can call 
I can't wait until 
You can stash 
And you can seize 
Responsibilities 
And I can love 
And I can love 
And I know that the tide is turning 'round 
So don't let the bastards grind you down
