One, two, three, four

People moving out, people moving in, why?
Because the color of their skin
(Run, run, run)
But you're soaking high
An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
Vote for me and I'll set ya free
Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble
Well only person bout out in public is the preacher
And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher
(But the teacher)
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration
Occupation, amelioration, obligation to our nation

Ball of confusion
Uh, yeah, that's what the world is today, hey
Selling freedom is at an all time high
Young folks walking round with their heads in the sky
Cities ablaze in the summer time
The people's own

Evolution, revolution
Gun control, dinosaurs
Shootin' rockets to the moon, kids growin' up too soon
Politicians say four tenth's will solve everything

Round and round and round we go
Whether where it's headed, nobody knows

Quicker, the Luger can ya hear me talkin' to ya?
Just a ball of confusion
Uh, yeah, that's what the world is today, hey

Feel it in the air
Tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast
The Beatles' new records are gas
And the only safe place to live is on the Indian reservation

Evil destruction
Tax deduction
City's inspectors
Bill collectors
Population out of hand
Suicide to the bills
Hippies movin' to the hills
People all over the world are shouting end the war
(Shouting end the war, shouting end the war)

Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
Let me hear you, let me hear you say
Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
Let me hear you, let me hear you
Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
Let me hear you, let me hear you
Let me tell you now
Let me hear you, let me hear you say
Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today
I read it in the bible
