[Intro]

Em D Em D


[Verse 1]

Em                   G   
All around me are familiar faces.
D                   A
Worn out places.  Worn out faces.
Em                          G 
Bright and early for their daily races.
D                A
Going nowhere.  Going nowhere.
Em                          G  
And their tears are filling up their glasses.
D                A
No expression.  No expression.
Em                        G  
Hide my head; I want to drown my sorrow.
D              A
No tomorrow.  No tomorrow.


[Chorus]

Em                   A
And I find it kinda funny.
                 Em
I find it kinda sad.
                         A
The dreams in which I'm dying
                        Em
Are the best I've ever had.
                   A
I find it hard to tell you
                       Em
Cuz I find it hard to take.
                    A
When people run in circles it's a very, very

Em G   A
   Mad world.
Em G   A
   Mad world.
Em G   A
   Mad world.
Em G   A
   Mad world.


[Verse 2]

Em                        G   
Children waiting for the day they feel good.
D                 A
Happy birthday.  Happy birthday.
Em                        G 
Made to feel the way that every child should.
D                 A
Sit and listen.  Sit and listen.
Em                        G 
Went to school and I was very nervous.
D                 A
No one knew me.  No one knew me.
Em                       G 
Hello, teacher tell me what's my lesson?
D                         A
Look right through me.  Look right through me.


[Chorus]

Em                   A
And I find it kinda funny.
                 Em
I find it kinda sad.
                         A
The dreams in which I'm dying
                        Em
Are the best I've ever had.
                   A
I find it hard to tell you
                       Em
Cuz I find it hard to take.
                    A
When people run in circles it's a very, very

Em G   A
   Mad world.
Em G   A
   Mad world.
Em G   A
   Mad world.
Em G   A
   Mad world.
