Adam Lambert Mad Gay World

Текст песни

"Mad World" is a song by the British band Tears for Fears. Written by Roland Orzabal and sung by bassist Curt Smith, it was the band's third single release and first chart hit, reaching #3 on the UK Singles Chart in November 1982. Both "Mad World" and its B-side, "Ideas As Opiates", would turn up on the band's debut LP The Hurting the following year. The song would eventually become Tears for Fears' first international hit, reaching the Top 40 in several countries between 1982 and 1983.

Nearly two decades later, the song made a popular resurgence when it was covered in a much slower, ballad-like style by composers Michael Andrews and Gary Jules for the soundtrack to the movie Donnie Darko. This version reached #1 in the UK in December 2003, and became an international hit.

=====================

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Goin' nowhere, goin' nowhere
Their tears are fillin' up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to 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 dyin'
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad world, mad world
Mad world, mad world

Children waitin' for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
Made 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 dyin'
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad world, mad world
Mad world, mad world

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dyin'
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad world, mad world
Mad world, mad world
A raunchy young world
Mad world

Все вокруг до боли мне знакомо:
Обветшалость, лиц усталость.
Спозаранку суетой влекомы,
Продолжают гонки в старость…

Может, там за опустевшим взглядом,
Носят слезы и волненье…
Отвернусь, свои печали спрятав…
Нет просвета, нет просвета…

Это было бы забавно,
Если б не печально так.
Сны, в которых умираю -
Это лучшее из благ.
В этом трудно признаваться,
Это трудно принимать.
В сумасшедшем мире мчатся
Все по кругу опять.
Опять… Опять…

Так нетерпеливо ждут лишь дети
Дня рожденья, дня рожденья.
Не мешает этим непоседам
Вразумленье, вразумленье.

Так волнуюсь по дороге в школу:
Одинокий, уязвимый…
У учителя спросил уроки:
Смотрит мимо, смотрит мимо…


Это было бы забавно,
Если б не печально так.
Сны, в которых умираю -
Это лучшее из благ.
В этом трудно признаваться,
Это трудно принимать.
В сумасшедшем мире мчатся
Все по кругу опять.
Опять… Опять...
