    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?

    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

    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?

    Cinnamon Girl

    Don't cry, don't shed no tears
    1 night won't make us feel
    Cause we know how this movie's ending

    Cinnamon Girl

    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

    Ya'll are gonna hate me for this.. but, while the video was weird, I kinda like the song.

  • wordlywife

    Thank you Blondie for posting the lyrics. I like it better now that I understand what it's about. A good lesson not to be too harsh at a first impression.

    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.

    Love, Scully

    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.
