I always interpreted his use of "eye" instead of "I", as an indication of internal truths, vs. ego. "I" implies the ego, the little self. It is that which we use to divide and differentiate ourself from everything else. "Eye" indicates a more internal view, an internal frame of mind...or simply a higher state of focus. (Such as the 3rd Eye).



EXCELLENT Benni.
Thank U lol

...or there is no meaning behind it at all. Much like there is no meaning in changing four to 4, or two to 2, or in to n, or example to xample.....

but if I had to guess a meaning, I would personally say its in relation to the 3rd eye, which Prince was into for the better part of his life.
