Free Urself ... We Need Ur Help ? WTH?

What is Prince talking about in this song? Is there a call to action? Free Urself from what?? Drugs (ie: clouds), political freedom (re: We The People).

The sex lyrics are never confusing, but the minute Prince steps out of that lyrical lane.... mahem....

Can someone breakdown Free Urself's meaning(s) to me?

Thanks in advance?

It's a pop song, not an operation manual.
Take it as it is and use your imagination ( or is that also too vague for you? ).
small circles, big wheels!
I've got a pretty firm grip on the obvious!

i think it's meant as in 'we would like you to be free, but you need to help us out here,

you need to free urself, we can't do it for you, we can give you a bit of help though' smile

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

Thizz

You need to love yourself before you can love anyone else

So for someone to love you, you should first love yourself

To love someone is a great effort

You can help in this effort by loving yourself

Ever tried loving someone who doesn't love themselves? It's usually a destructive endeavor
