As was previously reported on TruthRevolt, the artist currently known again as Prince has recorded a new song for the city of Baltimore as a tribute to the death of Freddie Gray and the resulting protests and violence. The lyrics to the soon-to-be released song call for peace and suggest gun confiscation as the means to that end.
Lyrics were printed at Fox9:
NOBODY GOT IN NOBODY'S WAY
SO EYE GUESS U COULD SAY
IT WAS A GOOD DAY
AT LEAST A LITTLE BETTER THAN THE DAY IN BALTIMORE
DOES ANYBODY HEAR US PRAY?
4 MICHAEL BROWN OR FREDDIE GRAY PEACE IS MORE THAN THE ABSENCE OF WAR
ABSENCE OF WAR
R WE GONNA C ANOTHER BLOODY DAY?
WE'RE TIRED OF CRYIN' & PEOPLE DYIN'
LET'S TAKE ALL THE GUNS AWAY
ABSENCE OF WAR - U AND ME
MAYBE WE CAN FINALLY SAY
ENUFF IS ENUFF IT'S TIME 4 LOVE
IT'S TIME 2 HEAR,
IT'S TIME 2 HEAR
THE GUITAR PLAY! (guitar solo)
On Tuesday, Prince, in his typical style, announced an impromptu concert to be held on May 10th, Mother's Day, at Baltimore's Royal Farms Arena, according to Rolling Stone. The new song, "Baltimore," will be performed at the Rally 4 Peace event, with some of the proceeds slated to go to various youth charities around the city. Attendees are encouraged to wear gray to honor Gray.
Alternate lyrics were suggested by a commenter over at Breitbart.com, bringing to light a possible conflict when it comes to Prince's personal safety and his views on firearms:
WE’RE TIRED OF CRYIN’ & PEOPLE DYIN’
LET’S TAKE ALL THE GUNS AWAY
XCEPT 4 MY BODYGUARDS U KNOW WHAT EYE SAY
