Mad World - Tears for Fears

Mad World

The Hurting
80s new wave pop synth pop alternative



Tears for Fears, named after a phrase found in Arthur Janov's book Prisoners of Pain, is a British pop/rock outfit formed in 1981 in Bath, England. Founder members Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith had been friends since their early teens and had already been in the shortlived ska band Graduate. Initially associated with the new wave and synthesiser bands of the early 1980s, Tears For Fears' earlier work, as evidenced on their 1983 debut album The Hurting , was explicitly based around the emotional angst of adolescence.

Mad World - Tears for Fears

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 I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
Cause 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
