Mad world

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it’s a very
Mad world…

I rather be dreaming than awake
Maybe that’s the only place that’s honest
In the grotesque in the beauty
That no one will ever judge
No one will ever know
No one can ever see
Just me
My own mad world
The only place I feel sane

I sit across from her at the table
Pretending I’m normal
I hope she thinks I’m normal
Watch your manners don’t you want what they tell you you do
Stop being so different
Just pretend indifference
Live life so perfect
No one knew you
You never knew you
How far we go to be the same
How far we go to be insane
Mad world

All those familiar faces
Worn out faces
There going somewhere that leads to nowhere
They look in the mirror
They look in my eyes
But they see nothing
They see nothing
I look so brave
But I hope they look right through me
Look right through me
Mad world…
