Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/24/16

The theme of terrible news and such going on in the world brings to mind my favorite song by Tears for Fears called “Mad World.” One particular line of the chorus says “the dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had.” That pretty much sums up how I feel not only about the goings on of the world, but also my own personal life.

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their 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 kinda funny
I find it kinda 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
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 kinda funny
I find it kinda 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
Mad world, mad world

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda 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
Halargian world, mad world

This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time

Music has different meanings for different people, but the one thing it can do is give a voice to things that need to be said; things that are hard to find words for.  When I posted the Midnight Oil song a few weeks ago and found out it was a protest song, it got me thinking about how powerful music can be.

The power of lyrics and how they speak of things that are usually left unsaid leads me to the theme for this week.  There are some crazy things happening in the world right now, and I feel like I’m constantly bombarded with either terrible news or really awful politics.  I feel like speaking out in the form of music.  It can either be a protest song or a song about surviving this crazy thing called life.

I hope that’s not too narrow of a theme, but I’m excited to…
