Sorcerers of madness
Selling me their time
Child of god sitting in the sun
Giving peace of mind
Fictional seduction
On a black snow sky
Sadness kills the superman
Even fathers cry

Of all the things I value most of all
I look inside myself and see my world
And know that it is good
You know that I should

Superstitious century
Didn't time go slow
Separating sanity
Watching children grow
Synchronated undertaker
Spiral skies
Silver ships on plasmic oceans
In disquise

Of all the things I value most in life
I see my memories and feel their warmth
And know that they are good
You know that I should

Watching eyes of celluloid
Tell you how to live
Metaphoric motor-replay
Give, give, give!
Laughter kissing love
Is showing me the way
Spiral city architect
I build, you pay

Of all the things I value most of all
I look upon my earth
And feel their warmth
And know that it is good
You know that I should

    Other than containing one of the most devastating rhythm guitar riffs ever written, spiral is a spiritual journey within the self, nietzsche's superman laughter kissing and the thoreau-like final chorus, i look upon my earth and feel the warmth and know that it is good... Fantastic song, literally and figuratively

    Wow. Not an easy thing to do. The complete work "sabbath bloody sabbath" is so very abstract to me. Ripping away the fictional aspects of society and blatantly forcing us to view the world in a realistic way that is hidden from us by sociiety. The song "spiral architect" i could say is a song looking within ourselves to see beyond ourselves and the earth around us and to look within and take a glipse of what could be "beyond us'? Just food for thought.

    I think it has to do with the olympics and the new age movement. The spiral is a symbol of the new age movement and the acrobat is the athlete. The new age movement believes we all have a spark of the gods in us
