Ball of Confusion
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

The sale of pills are at an all-time high
Young folks walking round with their heads in the sky
Cities ablaze in the summertime, and oh
And the beat goes on

Evolution, revolution
Gun control, sounds 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 googamooga
Can't you hear me talking to you?
Just a ball of confusion, oh yeah
That's what the world is today, ooh, yeah yeah

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

Oh, great googamooga
Can't you hear me talking to you

Sayin' ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey

Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey

Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
