“Time is a trick,” Prince often lectures. It is meant to be manipulated and doubted, but most of society depends on time to maintain its methodical form. Structure has never been something that Prince willingly adheres to. He is a living definition of unity but with a burning passion which will never be compromised by the expectations of others. He believes that art is meant to challenge its audiences and continuously morph into something new. To Prince, time follows these same guidelines; it is forever changing and is not meant to be systematically caged. His lyrics are often contemplative about the notion of time but rarely without questioning its existence. I have often experienced the absence of time inside Paisley Park, for Prince doesn’t allow concepts as binding as this to lurk within the world he has created.
