"It's got a really spongy sound. We've found that when you're men, the slower tempos can be funky."

"Acrobat" (Baby version)

Make it stop
She holds me against the wall
Make it stop

Don't believe what I hear
I don't believe what you see
I just close my eyes
And I feel the enemy

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
And drink it slow
And make it high
Without going low
And I can hope
But not too much
When I see the wheel's turning round
So don't let the bastards grind you down

Nothing makes sense
No, nothing seems to fit
You know I'd hit out
If I only knew who to hit

When the sky turns to purple
And the moon turns to blood
Will you dig me out
When I'm facedown in the mud
Will you bale me out

'Cause I can kiss
And you can tell
And I can strip
I do it well
You can hold
You can touch
I know that the time is coming round
But I won't let the bastards grind me down

Oh baby
What are we going to do now it's all been said
No new ideas and every book's been read

And you can kiss
And I can tell
And you can strip
You do it well
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 smash
You can seize
In dreams begin responsibilities
And I can love
And I can love
You know that the tide is turning 'round
So don't let the bastards grind you down
