For the musicians out there:

This is the first song on the album on which I play a Telecaster, which can be heard in the final solo. Loved it so much I played it three other times.
“Confusion” was written way before the rest of the songs on “In a Minute”. The song came really naturally to me and the only thing I requested specifically from the band were the rim clicks for the entire verse and bridge. I really liked the three chord harmony starting on an A with a B for the bass note; this really put me into a retro vibe and I wanted the rest of the song to feel that way.
I got a chance to remind everyone how much I love chorus-vibe effects on this track.

For the music lovers:

I’m really into 70′s music; especially the stuff my parents like. I’d just finished watching an episode of an awesome show called “Breaking Bad” a few years a go when this reference to Boz Scaggs and Steely Dan came on. I was already a fan of those artists, but listened to a lot by them after being reminded by Walter White. “Confusion” was written around that time, and it shows.
The song is about “running into someone you don’t want to run into”, as I say in the video, but it’s also about breaking up and being cheated on. “Confusion” takes those situations and deals with them with a fair amount of ‘cool’. Only 70′s music can be that smooth.

lyrics

Oh confusion
So lost into the night
In a smoky room
My eyes begin to tear up

My illusions
Crumble up the more I look
At your smiling eyes and your arms around someone new

I've never seen a pair of eyes that say so little about
The way that someone feels when I'm around

Won't somebody get me out of here?

Why's it so hard to believe
After all that we’ve been through
Tell me what I've got to do to get over you

I've been told time and time again
But it's so hard to face the truth
Tell me what I've got to do to get over you

See you looking
Over at where I am
I want you to get closer as much as I don't want you to

It's as if you'd planned it
As if you wanted to make things worse
The more you look, the more you make it hurt

I've never seen a pair of eyes that say so little about
The way that someone feels when I'm around

Won't somebody get me out of here?

Why's it so hard to believe
After all that we’ve been through
Tell me what I've got to do to get over you

I've seen it time and time again
But it's so hard to face the truth
Tell me what I've got to do to get over you
