    Lyrics

    People movin' out, people movin' in.
    Why, because of the color of their skin.
    Run, run, run, but you sho' can't hide
    An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
    Vote for me and I'll set you free
    Rap on, brother, rap on.
    Well, the only person talkin' 'bout love thy brother is the preacher
    And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher
    Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration, aggravation,
    humiliation, obligation to our nation

    Ball Of Confusion that's what the world is today (yeah, yeah)
    The sale of pills is at an all time high
    young folks walkin' 'round with their heads in the sky
    Cities aflame in the summer time, and oh the beat goes on
    Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
    City inspectors, bill collectors,
    Evolution, revolution, gun control, the sound of soul,
    Shootin' rockets to the moon, kids growin' up too soon
    Politicians say more taxes will solve ev'rything, and the band played on.
    Round and round and around we go, where the world's headed nobody knows.
    Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talkin' to you, just a
    Ball of Confusion that's what the world is today. (yeah, yeah)

    Fear in the air, tension ev'rywhere
    Unemployment rising fast, the Beatle's new record's a gas,
    and the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation,
    and the band played on
    Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
    City inspectors, bill collectors, mod clothes in demand,
    population out of hand, suicide too many bills,
    hippies movin' to the hills
    People all over the world are shouting end the war and the band played on.
    Round and round and around we go, where the world's headed nobody knows.
    Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talkin' to you, just a
    Ball of Confusion that's what the world is today
    Let me hear you, let me hear you, let me hear you
    Ball Of Confusion that's what the world is today
