Mad World


All around me are familiar faces Worn out places, worn out faces Bright and early for the daily races Going nowhere, going nowhere.

Their tears are filing up their glasses No expression, no expression Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take When people run in circles it's a very, very Mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good Happy birthday, happy birthday And I feel the way that every child should Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school I was very nervous No one knew me, no one knew me Hello teacher what's my lesson Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take When people run in circles it's a very, very Mad world, mad world, Halargian world Mad world

(Gary Jules’ Version. The original version is by "Tears for Fears", but I prefer this slower one)
