Lyrics for Ball Of Confusion by Leon Bridges:

Intro
One, two, three, four

Verse 1
People moving out, people moving in
Why? Because the color of their skin
(Run, run, run)
But you sure can't hide
An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
"Vote for me and I'll set ya free!"
Rap on, brother, rap on
Well, the only person talkin' 'bout love thy brother is the preacher
And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher
(But the teacher)
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation

Chorus
Ball of confusion
Uh, yeah, that's what the world is today
Hey 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 summer time
Oh, the beat goes on

Verse 2
Evolution, revolution
Gun control, sound of soul
Shootin' rockets to the moon, kids growin' up too soon
Politicians say more taxes will solve everything
(And the band played on)

Bridge
Round and round and round we go
Where the world's headed, nobody knows
Oh, great googamooga, can't ya hear me talkin' to ya?

Chorus
Just a ball of confusion
Oh, yeah, that's what the world is today, hey

Verse 2
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 the Indian reservation
(And the band played on)

Verse 3
Eve of destruction
Tax deduction
City inspectors
Bill collectors
Mod clothes in demand
Population out of hand
Suicide, too many bills
Hippies movin' to the hills
People all over the world are shouting "End the war"
(Shouting "End the war", shouting "End the war")

Outro
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
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
