Verse 1:
All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places Worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere Going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression No expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow No tomorrow

Chorus:
And I find it kinda funny

The dreams in which I'm dying

About this song

"Mad World" was covered by Michael Andrews and Gary Jules for the film Donnie Darko (2001), achieving a second round of success almost twenty years after the original. While the Tears for Fears version featured various synthesizers and percussion, the Andrews/Jules version was stripped down; instead of a full musical backing, it used only a set of piano chords, a cello, and modest use of a vocoder on the chorus.
