Prince “Dreamer” (2011) [♬]

This live performance gem:

I was born, raised on a slave plantation
In the United States, of the red, white and blue
Never knew that I was different, till Dr. King was on a balcony
Lyin’ in a bloody pool
I expected so much more from a loving
From a loving, loving society
A truthful explanation, but you know what
I got another, another conspiracy.

If it was just a dream, listen, call me, call me a dreamer too

With more rewards and accolades, then anyone before or after
21st century, oh what a shame, what a shame
Race, race still matters
A race to what, and where we going
We in the same boat, but I’m the only one rowing.

Last time I checked, you were sleeping, but you can call me a dreamer too

[mad guitar solo here]

Peanut butter logic, served on a bed of lies
Don’t go down too easy, when you’ve seen your father cry
Have you ever clutched the steering wheel in your car too tight
Praying that police sirens just pass you by that night
While the helicopter circles us, this theory’s getting deep
Think they’re spraying chemicals over the city
While we sleep.

[another mad guitar solo here]
