"Acrobat" is a song by rock band U2. It is the eleventh track on their 1991 album Achtung Baby. The critical failure of Rattle and Hum (1988) led the band to seek a harder sound in their music. The song developed from a riff created by guitarist The Edge, and is played in a  12⁄8 time signature. Thematically the song contains elements of hypocrisy, alienation, and moral confusion. "Acrobat" has never been performed live, although it was rehearsed prior to the third leg of the Zoo TV Tour.

  • Acrobat to piosenka rockowej grupy U2, pochodząca z jej wydanego w 1991 roku albumu, Achtung Baby. Mimo iż zyskała ona dużą popularność wśród fanów, nigdy nie została ona wykonana na żywo. Można ją jednak usłyszeć na nagraniach Zoo TV: Outside Broadcast Tour, podczas prób w Hershey. W specjalnym wywiadzie dla telewizji HBO, Bono powiedział, że piosenka opowiada o byciu hipokrytą. Jako potwierdzenie swego zdania przytoczył fragment utworu: "I must be an acrobat, to talk like this and act like that...", który według niego jest także doskonałym opisem hipokryty. Grupa Kane nagrała cover piosenki, który następnie został wydany na jej albumie CD/DVD With or Without You, w pełni poświęconym U2.

  • "Their strategy had been radical. Take everything you know and throw it out. Work with music you don't know, in a place you don't know, in a way you haven't worked before. Disorientate yourself."
  • "It is a song about your own spleen, your own hypocrisy, your own ability to change shape and take on the colours of whatever environment you're in, like a chameleon."
