The Truth ~ the Artist

Pick a word or a line from this song, that you can connect to another Prince(Protege) song, as if in reference. But only from an album prior to 1997

Why do we play this silly game?

Thetruth_album.jpg

[Verse 1]
What if half the things ever said
Turned out to be a lie
How will you know the Truth?
If you were given all the answers
And you stopped to wonder why
But how will you know the Truth?

[Chorus]
Everybody's got a right to love
Everybody's got a right to lie
But the choice you make it ain't no piece of cake
It ain't no motherfuckin' piece of pie

[Verse 2]
What If time's only reason?
Was to give us all something to fear?
And if so you all, the end of the journey's so clear
Questionaire, What did you stand for?
Questionaire, Who did you save?
When it gets right down to wait a minute
When it gets right down to the nitty of the gritty
When it gets right down to it you take more than you gave

[Chorus]
Everybody's got a right to love
Everybody's got a right to lie
But the choice you make it ain't no piece of cake
It ain't no motherfuckin' piece of pie

[Bridge]
Mmmm oh
Got to (Going to?) tell the truth you all
Got to tell the truth
Got to tell the truth you all
Got to tell the truth
Got to tell the truth you all
Got to tell the truth

[Outro]
If there was just one day
That everybody tell the truth
We'd all trade bank accounts and move to back to Neptune

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your milli

God bless Susan and Brenda,

Oh, and God,

please bless all the people on Neptune, Amen

I'll take the easy one: tell the truth. Also in Prince's TIME lyrics from 1987. Used in the same, more simplistic context of verbal disclosure of what transpired vs. a larger truth of the universe.

If you were given all the answers...

If a girl answers, don't hang up.

What?

He has to have Jupiter somewhere, right? OF4S could probably find it smile Don't think he used Uranus - that's a tough one to work into lyrics biggrin
