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 its 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 its a very, very
Mad world, mad world, enlarging your world
Mad world

The summary of Donnie Darko. The person is hero and has to die to save the world. The way he views the Mad World is expressed here.

It's about being sick of the everyday rat race. Slaves with white collars. Advertising has it's taste for cars n clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy crap we don't need. Sorry Tyler.

My meaning of the song is that this person never got to have a happy life with a nice family. Instead he got stuck in a cruddy life.

Hopes and dreams have been decimated, so it seems, lost time is gone, but never stop dreaming - we do have a future.

I love Adam's Lambert version of this song, but I can't stop listening to Gears of War rendition. When this started playing in Gears I wanted to cry. It fits so perfectly. RIP Santiago.
