1, 2... 1, 2, 3, 4, Ow! [Eddie] 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 [Dennis] 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. Woo, hey, hey [Paul] 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 summertime And oh, the beat goes on [Dennis] Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon Politicians say more taxes will solve everything [Melvin] And the band played on So, round and around and around we go Where the world's headed, nobody knows [Instrumental] 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 Woo, hey, hey [Eddie] Fear in the air, tension everywhere Unemployment rising fast, the Beatles new record's a gas [Dennis] And the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation [Melvin:] 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.' [Melvin] And the band played on [Instrumental] Great googalooga, can't you hear me talking to you 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 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 Sayin'... ball of confusion

A Prophetic song, and it is happening today! September 20th 2019, today the Lawyers of our president trump dumped on this whole planet, saying we all can do whatever the hell we want and none of you can charge me/ us with any of the crimes we are committing, & furthermore, ordered investigations to stop. Walls of Confusion!
