Just listening to a new album ‘Dark Hope’ of Renée Fleming and come across a very nice cover of the song ‘Mad World‘… The lyrics made me think again.

Going nowhere, going nowhere…

It won’t flourish your day listening to this song again, properly, but certainly will make you think again. Do good, be good, try to be good to your enemies, always treat them with respect. Yes, that’s right – that’s from the Bible. But the Bible says more things right than wrong, take this for example:

The Lord detests the way of the wicked but he loves those who pursue righteousness.Book of Proverbs, 15:9

Although I don’t believe in “the Lord” as the religious people think and talk about him or her, but I strongly believe that righteousness is being rewarded. Whenever, however. Just because you’re trying to pursue what is right/good/positive. And thát is what matters…

The lyrics of the song ‘Mad World’:

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I wanna 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 dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it’s a very, very
Mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
And I 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 dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it’s a very, very
Mad world, mad world, enlarging your world
Mad world
