Jasmine Thompson – Mad World lyrics

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 filling 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 and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me, 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, enlarge your world
Mad world

    This song is really all about being alone and just the sadness that comes with accepting it. It says that no one knew her and that she felt the way that every one like her should. But there's points where you can tell that really all she felt was deep sadness. The people around her were all the same that she always saw and she was tired of seeing the same ones over and over again but none of those faces ever saw her because no one knew her. I personally think that is the reason why she felt all of this. Because she was isolated from the point of when she was in school. One of the most important lines is the one where she says that the dreams in which shes dying are the best she's ever had. It shows exactly how she was feeling through all of this and many people can connect to exactly how she is feeling.
