Prince's Purple and Gold Lyrics

the veil of the sky draws open

the roar of the chariots touch down

we r the ones who have now come again

and walk upon water like solid ground

as we approach the throne we won't bow down

this time we won't b denied

raise every voice and let it b known

in the name of the purple and gold

we come in the name of the purple and gold

all of the odds r in r favor

no prediction 2 bold

we r the truth if the truth can b told

long reign the purple and gold

the eyes say ready 4 battle

no need 4 sword in hand

we r all amped up like a rock n roll band

ready 2 celebrate every score

ready 2 fight the elegant war

ready 2 hear the crowd roar
