Love And Rockets – Ball Of Confusion (12" UK 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, rap on brother
Rap on

Well, the only person talking about love today is the preacher
And it seems nobody gets just all the learning but the teacher

Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation, devastation of our nation

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

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

The sale of pills at an all time high
Who put the filling in the primus sky?
The city's a flame in the summer time

And the beat goes on
And the beat goes on
And the beat goes on
And the beat goes on

Economics, reaganomics, birth control, the status quo
Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon
The Politicians say and the band plays on

So, round and around and around we go
Where the world's heading
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
Rockets new record's a gas

And the band played on
And the band played on
And the band played on
And the band played

Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors
Solid gold in demand, population out of hand, suicide

Too many bills, everyone movin' to the hills
People all over the world are dying in the war

And the band played on
And the band played on
And the band played on
And the band played

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

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

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

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

Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
Ball of confusion, 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, hey hey, 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, hey hey, hey hey
Hey hey, hey hey, hey hey
