Jukebox Friday

Standard

Today I chose a song that is and has been for a long while very dear to me:

Mad World – Gary Jules

This is a song I was listening to non-stop, whenever I came home from school. I love it because, although it is a still song, it’s very deep and whoever listens to it feels it. It’s a true song, that fits societies and people all around. Most of all it is a song about routine and the sickness of it, about every day life, about everyones life. And, of course, it’s a song that defines our very, very 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

Read the lyrics very carefully.
