It is what it is, folks. These... are... the... lyrics... that... are... stuck... in... my... head... right... now! And here are some videos to go along with them. They aren't all very good quality, but at least you'll be able to hear the music along with the lyrics. : )
"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
And I find it kind of funny and I find it kind of sad The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've 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
Children waiting 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, what's my lesson Look right through me, look right through me
And I find it kind of funny and I find it kind of sad The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've 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"
"My reflection, dirty mirror There's no connection to myself I'm your lover, I'm your zero I'm the face in your dreams of glass So save your prayers For when we're really gonna need 'em Throw out your cares and fly Wanna go for a ride
She's the one for me She's all I really need 'Cause she's the one for me
Emptiness is loneliness And loneliness is cleanliness And cleanliness is godliness And God is empty just like me
Intoxicated with my madness I'm in love with my sadness Bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth
I never let on that I was on a sinking ship I never let on that I was down You blame yourself for what you can't ignore You blame yourself for wanting more
She's the one for me She's all I really need She's the one for me She's my one and only"
"Don't look, don't look The shadows breathe Whispering me away from you Don't wake at night to watch her sleep You know that you will always lose This trembling adored Tousled bird mad girl
But every night I burn But every night I call your name Every night I burn Every night I fall again
Oh, don't talk of love The shadows purr Murmuring me away from you Don't talk of words that never were The end is all that's ever true There's nothing you can ever say Nothing you can ever do
Still, every night I burn Every night I scream your name Every night I burn Every night the dream's the same Every night I burn Waiting for my only friend Every night I burn Waiting for the world to end
Just paint your face The shadows smile Slipping me away from you Oh, it doesn't matter how you hide Find you if we're wanting to So, slide back down and close your eyes Sleep a while, you must be tired
But every night I burn Every night I call your name Every night I burn Every night I fall again Every night I burn Scream the animal scream Every night I burn Dream the crow-black dream
"How does it feel To treat me like you do When you've laid your hands upon me And told me who you are I thought I was mistaken I thought I heard your words Tell me how do I feel Tell me now, how do I feel
Those who came before me lived through their vocations And still I find it so hard to say what I need to say But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me just how I should feel today
I see a ship in the harbor I can and shall obey But if it wasn't for your misfortune I'd be a heavenly person today And I thought I was mistaken I thought I heard you speak Tell me how do feel Tell me now, how should I feel
Now I stand here waiting
I thought I told you to leave me When I walked down to the beach Tell me how does it feel When your heart grows cold, grows cold, cold"
"My shadow's Shedding skin And I've been picking My scabs again I'm down Digging through My old muscles Looking for a clue
I've been crawling on my belly Clearing out what could've been I've been wallowing in my own confused And insecure delusions For a piece to cross me over For a word to guide me in I wanna feel the changes coming down I wanna know what I've been hiding In my shadow My shadow Change is coming through my shadow My shadow Shedding skin I've been picking My scabs again
I've been crawling on my belly Clearing out what could've been I've been wallowing in my own chaotic And insecure delusions I wanna feel the change consume me Feel the outside turning in I wanna feel the metamorphosis And cleansing I've endured within My shadow My shadow Change is coming Now is my time
Listen to my muscle memory Contemplate what I've been clinging to Forty six and two ahead of me
I choose to live and to Grow, take and give, and to Move, learn and love, and to Cry, kill and die, and to Be paranoid and to Lie, hate and fear, and to Do what it takes to move through I choose to live and to lie Kill and give, and to die Learn and love, and to Do what it takes to step through
See my shadow changing Stretching up and over me Soften this old armor Hoping I can clear the way By stepping through my shadow Coming out the other side Step into the shadow Forty six and two are just ahead of me"
"Will these dreams still follow me On out of dark obscurity Can't you see it up in the sky As it kicks you and the face and lets you die You never have the answers And now you tell me the facts are lies I really couldn't be bothered with you Get out of my face and watch me die
Burning inside, burning inside
Absolution and a frozen room Are the dreams of men below I try to grab it, but the touch is hot The mirror collapses, but the image cannot I'm scared of the darkness in light I scare myself 'cause I know I'm right I see the evil in your savage eye As it cuts right through the sky
Calling the mantra with a blade in the skin Looking for the demons within I feel the pain, it's the death and decay But the lesson never fades away Two little shadows turning away Another man through the window pane Another slave and a victim of fate Another lesson in hate
