[Verse]

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
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                      Em
And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad 
Em                      A                            Em
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had 
Em                 A                           Em
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take 
Em                  A
When people run in circles it’s a very very 
   Em                     A
            Maaaaaad world 
   Em                       A
            Maaaaaaad world 


[Verse]

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                      Em
And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad 
Em                      A                             Em
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had 
Em                A                            Em
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take 
Em                  A
When people run in circles it’s a very very 
   Em                     A
            Maaaaaad world 
   Em                     A
            Maaaaaad world 
Em                A
Enlarge your world 
Em       A
Mad world

I reckon the A chord in the bridge (i.e. "And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad..." could actually be A+9 (577600).

This is a great song and the chords are easy, also for those who could not be bothered learning the tab (like me), you can just pick through the chords and it sounds awesom

With the Chorus you have it Em,A if you change to G then to A it sounds really good so
Em G A
Maaaad Worrrrllld

Also fits with the song cuz it has a gap between the verse and chrous that you always find your self going "bommmm" "maaaad wooorrrrld"
