If you are interested, you can watch it from a link off MSN's Entertainment sction for free. Very "End of this world" type of stuff, look like an old Armegeddon publication. I'm disappointed in the Purple One. Perhaps a recording studio at Bethel is next?
Prince's new video-Babylon's destruction?
The video seems to be addressing the Iraqi issue, discrimination against Arabs, rather than the end of the world.
As war drums beat in Babylon (the original Babylon is in Iraq)
Cinnamon girl starts 2 pray
Eye've never heard a prayer like this 1
Never b4 that day
Tearful words of love 4 people she had never met b4
Asking God 2 grant them mercy in this face of a holy war
Cinnamon Girl of mixed heritage
Never knew the meaning of color lines
911 turned that all around
When she got accused of this crime
So began the mass illusion, war on terror alibi
What's the use when the god of confusion keeps on telling the same lie?
Don't cry, don't shed no tears
1 night won't make us feel
Cause we know how this movie's ending
As war drums beat in Babylon
And scorch the blood red sky
Militants bomb the foreign gun
Both sides truly die
Cinnamon girl opens the book she knows will settle all the scores
Then she prays after the war that there will not b anymore
This is the lin
I can't get it to play:
Ya'll are gonna hate me for this.. but, while the video was weird, I kinda like the song.

If it's a commentary on the war, then maybe the Elders? will be wanting to review the topic of Christian Neutrality? with him in the back room of the Kingdom Hall.

Hate you? "S" I love prince the man is a natural born genius. I know many of his songs note for note. He was very influnental on my muscianship and me learning to play 5 instruments. One of these days I will get brave enough to post some music that I wrote. Most here would be surprized. But, Im not ready to revel myself in that way here just yet.
I'm with you on this one SP..I thought it was pretty good....
