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

Same shit different year. Nothing changes. Humans are incapable of positive change. This song was done in the 60's

What causes confusion? Propaganda from every angle every minute of every day and night. Don't believe the hype, from the left or the right, and you'll be allright.

The ball of confusion is the Anti Christ. It intends to confuse about the clock of Destiny.
That clock is perpetual motion As the Universal Universe! Your Mother bore you then born you mind body and soul...i.e. Three times blessed.

IMO we're in a much better place than back when this song was made, though we definitely are in dire need of a new spiritually filling doctrine that would make us more united

By the way I’m a horrible speller. Let alone sentence maker, and I’m drunk on top of it. Get a duff.

They should play this everyday. If I had a lot of money I would rebuild Detroit city. Good paying jobs and rehab clinics everywhere. Gardens in every empty lots. Clean the streets. Give the girls on the streets a purpose. And a chance I’m a Canadian and I want out of here. Do something good. I don’t need any ackculmaids
