a very 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 filling up their glasses
no expression, no expression
hide my head i wanna drown my sorrow
no tomorrow, no tomorrow

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 its a very, very
mad world, mad world."
