^ what do you mean, don't you know about Tora Tora ???

Tora Tora is a japanese warcry, Prince used this name (alter ego) for his album (the NPG: Exodus) released in march (?) 1995, while he was touring with The Gold Experience/ Ultimate live Tour 1995.

I guess Prince used this name in his fight with Warner Bros. They owned his name (and his face?), therefor Prince was using a disquise, covering his face.... and using "Tora Tora" instead of "Prince",

he gave a rather bizarre interview to the BBC, dressed as Tora Tora with his face covered and whispering to Mayte who then told the host Veronica Webb what was said,

The Gold Experience, his first album as prince was finally released in september 1995, more than 2 years after the name change, and a half year after the Gold tour...

no wonder, imo. why Prince was mad at Warner Bros. in 1993 to 1995.

Say it's just a dream...
U open up ur eyes and come 2 realize

So u lean over and give her a kiss

Here on earth, here on earth
eye don't feel so sad
Stay right here
