Clouds - "Mr Nelson..."

"Mr Nelson... Mr Nelson, can you hear my voice? Sir, we know you're a little bit groggy, and you're probably going to find it hard to speak. But don't try to talk or process too much now. We just wanted to let you know that the medication you were given put you in suspended animation for quite some time. Well in fact, about 45 years.

But where you are now, is a place that does not require time. That being said, you are completely safe. And we're here to help you."

This makes me teary eyed. But at the same time puts a smile on my face. smile

He was 55. 45 years would mean he came back at 100.

He was on his own at age 12. Add that to the 45 years he speaks of in the song.

There are so many songs on AOA that u have to hear over and over again because u wonder what he was try to tell us.
And it ties in with what Tyka said about knowing he wouldn't be around for much longer.
At the My Name is Prince exhibition, Ur invited to leave a message on a much smaller replica of the fence around Paisley. I was gonna write the following, but didn't...

I say to myself, and often to others, that I'm not a religious person, but when I think of everything Prince did in his 57 years, it really does make u want to believe in a God. It's no wonder that he believed, and, I don't know, he makes me wanna believe, as stupid and foolish as it sounds, that he WILL be reborn.

EXACTLY.
We have discussed this many times.
He was in society’s illusions for all those years, and now he’s waking up and seeing what is really real, what matters...he is becoming enlightened.

I told y'all about that album when it came out. Dude was talking MJ and 2pac a little too much (fascinated), and wondering out-loud about how they would be remembered.

He slept in the elevator of Paisley Park?

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

He wasn't asleep. He was dead.

Interesting. I didn’t see it that way. I figured it was 45 years ahead (45 + 55 = 100). P didn’t believe in birthdates, but he always into numbers like that.

I think so, too.
.
Way Back Home is probably the most revealing song of his career. If that album came out in 2016, just before he died, that song might’ve been a really eery, minor radio hit, something mournul that would playing in Starbucks. That’s not good or bad, but I can just imagine it.

If you just stop breathing and die. How painful can it be. He did not slash his wrist or put a gun to his head.
