      Note: If the lyrics are misquoted, please feel free to correct me. I am sharing the lyrics but I have not read them all, nor have I heard every song Prince wrote. Thank you in advance!


      [Verse 1]
      Lie down, fair one, and come away
      Till the rain is over and gone
      G-G-Gimme the beat now (Face the music)
      Lead line (Face the music)

      If the air is a little thick in this room tonight
      I reckon it’s the result of an onslaught of separatist rookies
      Overcome by this colorful sight

      Talking so fast that even they
      Talking so fast that even they
      Don’t know what they mean

      Of all the things that base a rhyme
      How is it that you everytime
      Regurgitate the racist lines that keep us apart?

      Thank God this ain’t Monopoly
      You’d make us all go back to start

      [Chorus 1]
      In the space I mark human (Face the music
      Face the music
      We all bones when we dead

      In the space I mark human (Face the music
      Cut me, cut you
      Both the blood is red

      I gotcha


      Check it

      [Verse 2]
      Three seats over there’s a lady black
      Entrusted to her care is a little white girl
      And the fact of the matter is

      Before her mom or another kid at school
      Tells her about the fallacy that one race rules over the other
      She’d be a much-better-off-left fool (Face the music

      If we never heard about the evils that those before us committed
      Then how my dear, tell me now how my dear, tell me now how now would we know

      And then the band say

      [Chorus 1]

      [Verse 3]
      D-d-down with H-I-S-T-O-R-Y and all this BS propagandi
      Keepin you from me and me from you as we grow
      I don’t wanna know (I don’t wanna know
      Why those before us hated each other

      I’d rather believe they never did
      I’d rather believe (I’d rather, I’d rather believe
      That there’s hope for a kid

      And if he imitates the best
      I guess that’s what I’ll try to be
      And I will let the rest dissolve with my guitar underneath the sea

      [Chorus 1]
