Roland Orzabal – Mad World (Alternate Version) lyrics

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

The tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrows
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
That 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 they 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
That 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
Mad world, mad world, mad world, mad world
Enlargen your world, mad world

    Rare are the people who realize how mad our world have become. Repeting the same routine everyday unaware that they're trapped in the circle of society. Some people though can't see how. Sad life is for most people. In the street you rarely see any smile, only sad, tired or anxious faces. Life feels lonely when you are someone who can see those things cause there is no other choice but to get in the same circle. And for most people, it is better to forget that madness than fight its, because most of the time you fight alone. And as I said earlier, we also bring our child in that circle but we force them into it really early. Should that be called a life or a never ending trap?
