Tears for Fears

Tears for Fears are an English New Wave band formed in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Founded after the dissolution of their first band, the mod-influenced Graduate, they were initially associated with the New Wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream … more »

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces  Bright and early for their daily races  Going nowhere, going nowhere
And 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 I'm dying 
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles 
It's a very, very
Mad world 
Mad world 
Mad world 
Mad world 

 Children waiting for the day they feel good
 Happy birthday, happy birthday
Made to 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
'Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles 
It's a very, very
Mad world 
Mad world 
Mad world 
Mad world 

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
'Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles 
It's a very, very
Mad world 
Mad world  Enlarging your world 
Mad world
