One Song
Unreleased track recorded late 1999 and released only as a video via Love4OneAnother.com (Jan. 1, 2000) and NPG Music Club (July 7, 2001). Written by Prince.

 
1999 and the illusion continues
1 begs 2 ask, "When will it end?"
Unnatural disasters happen seemingly every week
Train crashes, shootings, nuclear accidents
Is there any place of refuge 1 can flee from this insanity?
Very few of mankind's creations r designed 2 make U feel good
Unless U get pleasure from seeing the human body
Desecrated by guns, explosions, fights and other things
These so-called "artists" create
N the name of freedom
Many have used art as a means 2 destroy the human mind
As an excuse 2 continue we hear, "Art reflects society"
How many times has this lie been repeated?
"Creations r not real," they say
And yet any 1 of these people can call 2 mind images
And complete scenes of horror n graphic detail
They will carry these so-called "unreal" creations
Around with them 4 the rest of their lives
These images r now a part of their being
N the name of RECREATON these people n fact
R RE-creating themselves n their own images
Society then RE-flects art
N man's decision 2 furher seperate from God
His RE-creaton of himself leaves him n a dysfunctional state of confusion
The mind becomes a burial ground 4 dead waste
Isolated from the wholeness of God
Earth and his fellow brothers and sisters
This man seeks solace n activities he thinks will stimulate his mind
He then begins downloading n2 his brain
A series of manmade creations designed 2 destroy it
All manmade creations originate from 1 of 2 sources
The Tree of Knowledge or the Tree of Life
1 of these trees contained deadly fruit
The other fruit of everlasting life
The 1 who disregards this fact RE-creates himself
And his kind n2 extinction
U r reading these words on a machine created by man
As U read, U hear a voice speaking 2 U the words that U perceive
They make sense 2 U because U understand
"Stand under" the SPELLing
The words r what binds this "SPELL" 2 ur illusion
When U hear the truth, like a memory U regognize it
And this recognition releasees U from ALL illusion
Many languages r brillant n their attempt 2 CONfuse U
"CON" meaning against, "fuse" meanng 2gether
Words and their SPELLbinding illusions
Have the power 2 keep man separate from God
U were born an all-knowing state of mind
The 1st words spoken 2 U begin the "SPELL"
The words come from 1 of 2 sources
The Tree of Knowldge or the Tree of Life
N ignorance or simply lack of respect 4 God
Many use words that CONfuse the minds of humans
And turn them n2 projections of their own illusions
Because of this fact, many people grow up
And blindly assume their pre-selected role under a dictatorship
Without even being aware of it
When asked what they r doing here on earth
Most will answer with statements
That do not reflect their natural God-given desires
This creates a pyramid-like structure with the dictator on top
And each level under it knowing less and less
Upon reaching the bottom level which is where the majority is
U will find chaos, disorder and ILLusion
With "ILL" as its prefix, ILLusion is a state of insanity
N the name of democracy, supreme power is vested un2 the people
N this insane state instead of God
A future RE-created 2 b ruled by man is 1 of isolation and despair
Returning the leadership back n2 God
Will allow mankind 2 achieve its original collective goal
Which is union with God
Ideas contrary 2 this goal should not b blamed or persecuted
Just simply ignored
They originated when man 1st chose 2 ignore God's rule
Simply put, n the beginning the human was made perfect n God's image
They had no need 4 knowledge
They were also given freedom of choice
The Tree of Knowledge and the Tree of Life r reflections of this freedom
The human is now a reflection of their choice
They could have simply chose not 2 choose
God being centrifugal n nature
Freedom was the CAUSE and choice was the EFFECT
N knowing their perfection made n God's image
There was no need 2 choose
N fact, their were NO NEEDS
There was only love n an all-knowing state b4 the fall
The worst thing U can do is give up ur God-given right 2 choose
4 n it U can choose not 2 choose
Therein is the final judgment
The illusion ceases and U awaken from ur dream
Now the healing begins

With an all-knowing mind made n God's image
U can create as ur Creator, God intended
With love, honor and respect 4 every living thing n the universe
Separation ceases and we all become 1 being singing the 1 song

I am the universe, the sun, the moon and the sea
I am the energy, 4 that is what I breathe
I can b a contradiction cuz that is all I see
But I am the universe and the universe is me

I am the 1 song (Ah yes)
And that 1 song is free
All things come from this 1 song (Yes they do)
The garden and the tree

If everything, everything is present, what is will always b
This here the 1st and the last song and all that come between

When language falls like a wounded soldier and it's covered but by the sea
All the sadness, all these unanswered questions keep me company...
Come 2 me, come 2 me please
Here at the center of it all I know the future will come from me
(I am the universe)
Yes it will, oh, yes it will (The sun, the moon and the sea)
Where else is it gonna come from but me? (I am the universe)
Oh my, my... universe (The universe is me)

I am the universe, the sun, the moon and the sea (We r the universe)
I am the universe, the universe is me (We r the universe)
1 truth, 1 song, 1 energy
