Wolfgang Spielvogel

Recently my elder brother Wolfgang died. Aged 53, excercised Karate master and teacher, father of two sons and a daughter. Completely unexpectedly. This is how death sometimes works. A few days later when I was back home from his funeral this song drove me to tears. Again.

Mad World

Composed and performed by Gary Jules

This is an interpretation of Mad World by Paul Kalkbrenner.

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 its 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 its a very, very
Mad world, mad world, enlarge your world
Mad world
