 All around me are familiar faces,

 Worn out places, worn out faces,
 EmG
 Bright and early for their daily races,
 DA
 Going nowhere, going nowhere,

 And their tears are filling up their glasses,

 No expression, no expression,
 EmG
 Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrow,
 DA
 No tomorrow, no tomorrow,

 And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad,

 Children waiting for the day they feel good,

 Went to school and I was very nervous,

 No one knew me, no one knew me,
 EmG
 Hello teacher, tell me what's my lesson,

 Look right through me, look right through me

I find its better to use AM-C-G-D, with A and D for the chorus. No upstrums needed

Great video. Just FYI, though, the song is by Tears for Fears, also covered by Gary Jules, not the other way around.

This song is amazing. So amazing that I made a 2012 cover featuring a female vocalist. Check it out, I'm giving it away as a free download: http://paulloeb.net/madworld
