Time of confusion, by the sound of it (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

days

Here is my best explanation:

'time' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'confusion by the sound of it' is the subsidiary indication.

'confusion' becomes 'daze' (daze is a kind of confusion).

'by the sound of it' shows a homophone (sound like).

'daze' is a homophone of 'days'.

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for days that I've seen before include "Twenty four-hour periods", "Periods (of week)", "Periods of time", "Time period(s)", "See 1 down", "` `They are not long, the .... of wine and roses' ' (Dowson)", "Sevenths of a week", "See 25", "Twenty-four hour periods" and "Twenty four hour periods".)
