All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces

Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere
Going nowhere

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 iґm dying
Are the best iґve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
Itґs a very very
Mad world
Mad world
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 whatґs 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 iґm dying
Are the best iґve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
Cos' I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
Itґs a very very
Mad world
Mad world

    Didn't Adam from American Idol sing this? No wonder It got on the top 100 so fast. I'm more of a Danny Gokey kinda girl but Adam is pretty good too.
