"People movin' out, people movin' in,
Why? Because of the color of their skin;
Run, run, run, but you sure 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.
The only one talking about love thy brother is the... preacher,
And it seems--no one's interested in learning but the... teacher.
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration,
Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation:
Ball of Confusion--
Oh yeah, That's what the world is today. Woo, hey, hey."
