Mad World -- Puddles Pity Party, ft. Haley Reinhart





I once showed a patient this TAT card and he said, "There’s a Tears for Fears music video with the same shot, a really sad song – “The dreams I dream I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had" -- “Mad World.” So I guess the guy got home and there’s not much going on in his place – it’s dark and depressing, he’s peering out, at the city below, or countryside, to escape from the darkness of his place. Later, after the sun goes down, he will turn on the lights, read a book, and just go to sleep. It's wishful thinking – having good stuff to look forward to. He's hopeful, but wary of being too hopeful."






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 it's a very, very
Mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
And 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,
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
