Recorded circa 2008 and
released as the 11th track on the album
(March 24, 2009). Written by Prince.
I was born, raised on the same plantation
N the United States of the red, white and blue
I never knew that I was different
Till Dr. King was on the balcony lyin' n a bloody pool
I expected so much more from a loving, a loving, loving society
A truthful explanation, but U know what?
I got another, another conspiracy
If it was just a dream
Call me, call me a dreamer 2
More rewards and accolades than anyone b4 or after
21st century, oh what a shame, what a shame
Race, huh, race still matters
A race 2 what and where r we goin'?
We n the same boat but I'm the only 1 rowin'
Last time I checked U were sleepin'
Hmph, but U can call me a dreamer 2
Peanut butter logic served on a bed of lies
Don't go down 2 easy when U seein' ur father cryin'
Have U ever clutched the steering wheel of ur car 2 tight?
Prayin' that the police sirens just pass U by that night
While the helicopter circles, uh, theory's gettin' deep, uh
Think they're sprayin' chemicals over the city while we sleep
From now on I'm stayin' awake
U can call me a dreamer 2
Aw, I got 1 eye open 4 the separatist fool
Oh yeah! Oh yeah no!
Help me! Whoo!
Please wake up
So what's it feel like?
Do U feel like?
U must b kidding
It's time 2 wake up
Wake up, wake up
