Prince, Involuntary Suicide and Addiction

Prince, Involuntary Suicide and Addiction


CORNELL Commented, “After thousands of conversations, victims of the disease of addiction have proven that they are the smartest, most caring and highest performing individuals the country has to offer. So much so, that they typically accomplish everything everyone else wants and then run into a brick wall or better described as “writers block” while trying to write their next chapter for themselves instead of or for those they wish to please. Before and during their quest to find a better meaning than the last, they get offered a way to calm down, forget or enjoy by friends or doctors.

What is amazing, is that when their disease of addiction becomes the forefront of their life, they try to prepare everyone for their path of life. It is one thing for Prince to run out of ideas but this happens to kids that are the best our country has to offer. Worse, is from my experience, it starts at the age of 12-16 because the kids accomplished their goals with or without drugs and don’t know what the next step is and depend on TV, Celebrities and Reality Shows to form an idea for them. Calculus, English and Chemistry don’t move fast enough for them to pay attention. Economics is no longer a discipline but a product of Wall Street and Wall Street is a product of sales people who couldn’t pass an English Class but may have signed their test with an F U. I think Prince, in all his success, told us he was tired of the game instead of the production. That He Felt he had succeeded beyond his wildest dreams and was stuck trying to appease people instead of coming up with something from the heart that would fulfill the higher expectations. Personally, I think he may have known exactly where he stood when he wrote the song, “Let’s Get Crazy”. He may have needed to slow his mind to finish the composition and thought the composition of success was partially a result of slowing down with pain pills he may have acquired first, for a hip problem and called that doctor in Beverly Hills to keep his mind focused.
My experience with our clients is that the only thing that matters to them is that everyone they care about is safe before they go too crazy or try to be accepted by starting small once again. Their addiction takes them to a new level of addiction via physical and psychological addiction together, that they prepare for as fast as they can to help the ones they love. Thereafter, they “GO CRAZY “, to escape the pressure of performing acts of being a productive member of society, while thinking everyone else is safe and they did their job.

In my mind, they are the only people that aren’t shoveling a living of lies but the ones that just need a new inspiration to perform to. The second they see “the normal life”, they say that it isn’t normal. I’m guessing Prince saw the same thing and didn’t respect how he got the money. I’m guessing that he, like others, had to second guess his success. I’m guessing the song, “Lets Go Crazy” was a clue to his mental status years before his death and had an insurance policy that denied payment for involuntary suicide.

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called “life” (He was unhappy)
Electric word, life (I’m looking for a way)
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time (I’m tired)
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else
The afterworld (that is my way out)
A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night (He was stuck in Minnesota too long hiding his thoughts)
So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills (A cry for help)
You know the one, Dr. Everything’ll-Be-Alright (Owning his problem)
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby (He was entering a new level of care/addiction/confusion)
Cause in this life
Things are much harder than in the afterworld (Why am I doing this? It is easier if I quit)
In this life
You’re on your own (It’s all about money, not talent, not ethics, I’m tired)
And if de-elevator tries to bring you down (That lonely elevator is where I will prove my point)
Go crazy (Give my mind a day off)
Woo! (it feels good)
If you don’t like
The world you’re living in
Take a look around
At least you got friends (I miss trusting my old friends before I had money)
You see I called my old lady
For a friendly word (I’m not making new friends, I need someone to understand me)
She picked up the phone
Dropped it on the floor
(Ah-s ah-s) is all I heard (I’m old news and I understand what I thought was real)
Are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down? (I’m going to press it further for me)
Oh, no lets go! (I’m so hurt but feel better with the Dr. from Bevererly Hills)
Let’s go crazy (Dr.. says I’m okay, just take what I want)
Let’s get nuts (I’m feeling it and feeling like being fun)
Let’s look for the purple banana (I have no idea)
Until they put us in the truck, let’s go! (the truck is a coffin)
We’re all excited (I’ll accept ankle biters as my friends to feel real)
But we don’t know why (because everyone enjoys the moment, not the journey)
Maybe it’s cause
We’re all gonna die (typical victim of addiction, too smart to enjoy and now knows why people are with him but seeks a way out)
And when we do (When we do)
What’s it all for (What’s it all for) (Justification for actions)
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door (solidifying past thoughts and the next best idea)
Tell me, are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down? (He is planning to make his last statement as performed by his last headline)

Oh, no let’s go! (I’m not social, lets fake it further)
Let’s go crazy
Let’s get nuts
Look for the purple banana
Until they put us in the truck, let’s go! (Lets have fun until I die)
C’mon baby
Let’s get nuts! (I need you now)
Let’s go crazy! (Please!!! Help Me)
Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down? (That is where I will be)
Oh, no let’s go!
Go (Go crazy) (Distract me so I can postpone my thoughts)
I said let’s go crazy (go crazy)
Let’s go (Let’s go! )
Go (Let’s go! ) (Why do I have to ask anymore, I thought we had fun)
Dr. Everything’ll-Be-Alright

Will make everything go wrong
Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill
Hang tough children (Learn from my death in an elevator, I’m not going to pull through but will try)
He’s comin’
He’s comin’
Comin’ (fear has paralyzed me, learn from my words)
Take me away! (I’m ready to die)

Cornell, “Call me crazy but I think Prince gave everyone a respectful introduction to his request for help via his music ability that got everyone to listen to what they needed to hear. I see this so often in so many different ways, with less of a message, and wonder why people don’t put their feet in others shoes? I’m trying to do that for you now so you can respect your family, neighbors and friends. I’m the CEO that is on the job, not the one selling money but the one having reason for a business instead of a position. I’m the one that sees the industry for its full potential in service and sales at the same time. $50 Million in sales via infomercials does not excite me. My shareholders, passion and ability after years of work are what make me write the real seal on a Sunday afternoon.
