Lyrics for the Times – Ball of Confusion

Amazing how applicable it is today

People moving out
People moving in
Why
Because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run
But you sure 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 talking about 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
Oh yeah
That’s what the world is today
Hey hey
The sale of pills are at an all time high
Young folks walking round with their heads in the sky
The cities ablaze in the summer time
And oh
The beat goes on
 
Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul
Shooting rockets to the moon
Kids growing up too soon
Politicians say more taxes will solve everything
And the band played on
So
Round and around and around we go
Where the world’s headed
Nobody knows
Oh great googa-looga can’t you hear me talking to you
Just a ball of confusion
Oh yeah
That’s what the world is today
Hey hey
Fear in the air
Tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast
The Beatles 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 moving to the hills
People all over the world are shouting end the war
And the band played on
Great googa-looga can’t you hear me talking to you
It’s a ball of confusion
That’s what the world is today
Hey hey
Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya
Sayin’ ball of confusion
That’s what the world is today
Hey hey
Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya
Ball of confusion
