All around me are familiar faces
Bright and early for their daily races
And their tears are filling up their glasses
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow

I find it kind of sad
Are the best I've ever had
'Cause I find it hard to take
It's a very, very

Happy birthday, happy birthday
Sit and listen, sit and listen
No one knew me, no one knew me
Look right through me, look right through me
And I find it kind of funny
The dreams in which I'm dying
I find it hard to tell you
When people run in circles
Mad world
