Song of the Day: Tears for Fears - Mad World

Re-made recently to great acclaim by Gary Jules, this is the original version, and I'm sorry, but I think the original is better than the cover! I played this all the way through on the old youtube, and at the end there was a little bonus... not sure if it was a fluke but it took me to another good one by T.F.F... "Everybody wants to rule the world"


All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races <-- inspired rhyming!
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to 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
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday <-- the saddest line?
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen <-- maybe this is sadder?
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me <-- no, this is sadder, boo hoo!
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me <-- by now you are thoroughly depressed
