Mad World   Roland Orzabal (Tears For Fears)

[Em]All around me are fa[G]miliar faces,
[D]Worn out places, [A]worn out faces,
[Em]Bright and early for their [G]daily races,
[D]Going nowhere, [A]going nowhere,
[Em]And their tears are filling [G]up their glasses,
[D]No expression, [A]no expression,
[Em]Hide my head, I want to [G]drown my sorrow,
[D]No tomorrow, [A]no tomorrow,
[Em]And I find it kind of [A]funny, I find it kind of [Em]sad,
The dreams in which I'm [A]dying are the best I've every [Em]had.
I find it hard to [A]tell you, cause I find it hard to [Em]take,
When people run in [A]circles, it's a very, very
[Em]         [G]Mad [A]World (4 times)
[Em]Children waiting for the [G]day they feel good,
[D]Happy birthday, [A]happy birthday,
[Em]Made to feel the way that [G]every child should
[D]Sit and listen, [A]sit and listen.
[Em]Went to school and I was [G]very nervous,
[D]No one knew me, [A]no one knew me,
[Em]Hello teacher, tell me [G]what's my lesson,
[D]Look right through me, [A]look right through me

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:

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

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