V1: The world has gone to battle
we're left to pick up the ashes
There are no more, no more idols
to teach our children what we once knew
Our families are falling to pieces
over monetary disputes
When did we lose our focus
and trade in our dignity and our truth?

V2: The world seems like it's ended
when whores earn more than an honest day's work
Our religion has crushed down upon us
when fathers subjected kids to their abuse
Our schools are scaring teachers
Discipline's been put in the hands of the youth
Don't you remember a time when
we had rolemodels to look up to?

Refrain: Oooh don't you, ooh don't you?
(Overlay: Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow,
There's no tomorrow, no tomorrow,
It's a mad world, it's a mad world)

V3: The world's become so scattered
we'd rather have diamonds, and pearls over love
And when did gratuitous violence
become a subject we daily discuss?
Our children are growing up too fast
the pressures of beauty are upon us all
Our future's looking uncertain
we need someone to just speak up

Refrain: Oooh speak up, ooooh speak up
(Overlay: Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow,
There's no tomorrow, no tomorrow,
It's a mad world, it's a mad world)

Outro: Tell me, tell me do you like what it is we're doing?
Tell me, tell me don't you see that we're cracking?
Tell me, tell me do you want to keep lying?
Tell me, tell me are you happy with the fact that we're dying?
(Overlay: There's something wrong with the world today,
I don't know what it is, I'm living on the edge)
