Starr, Edwin - Ball Of Confusion (That's What The World Is Today) Lyrics



Where are we going?...
What's going on?

People moving out, people moving in
Why, because of the color of their skin
Run, run, but you sure can't hide
You better!
Shake a hand make 'em free, hmm

The only person talking about love thy brother is the preacher, hm... and me
And it seems nobody's interested in learning, but the teacher
Talking 'bout the Golden Rule

Segregation (segregation), determination (determination)
Humiliation (humiliate)
Obligation to our nation
Ball of confusion, ball of confusion, that's what the world is today
Hey, yeah

The sales of pills are at an all-time high
Young folks walking round with their heads in the sky
The cities aflame in the summertime, why?
Cause people want the heat around
Oh!
And the beat goes on

Evolution, revolution
Gun control, talking 'bout the sound of soul
Shooting rockets to the moon, kid growing up says oh!
The beat goes on

Childhood in my life wasn't very pretty...
You see, I was born and raised in the slums of the city...
People moving out, people moving in...
The only one talking about love is the preacher...
Where only the strong survive...
It's a dog eat dog world...

Wake up world (wake up world) wake up world!
Wake up world (wake up world) wake up world!
Give peace a chance!
Are you afraid?
Time is running out!
Give peace a chance!
Are you afraid?
Time is running out!

Ball of confusion, ball of confusion, that is what is world is today
Hey, yeah

Fear in the air and tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast, the Beatles new record's a gas
People all over the world shouting War! Huh! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing

Ball of confusion...
