Love And Rockets - Ball Of Confusion (USA Mix) lyrics

People moving out, people moving in
Why, because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run but you just 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 and affection is the preacher
And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher
Segregation, determination, demonstration, intergration
Aggravation, humiliation, devastation of our nation

Ball of confusion
Yeah, that's what the world is today
Hey, hey
Ball of confusion
Yeah, that's what the world is today
Hey, hey

The sale of pills are at an all time high
Who was walkin' down with there heads in the sky?
The cities aflame in the summer time!
Go on and we go home

Economics, Reaganomics, Birth Control, The Status Quo
Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon
Politicians say
And the band played on

So, round and around and around we go
Where the world's headed, nobody knows

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

Fear in the air, tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast, the Beatles new record's a gas
And the band played on

Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors
Solid Gold in demand, population out of hand, suicide
Too many beers, hippies movin' to the hills
People all over the world are dying in the war
And the band played on

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

Hey Hey
