    Thanks for posting Jim - originally released by Tears For Fears

    Very poignant lyrics:

    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 want to drown my sorrow
    No tomorrow
    No tomorrow

    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which iґm dying
    Are the best iґve ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    'Cos I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    Itґs 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 whatґs 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 iґm dying
    Are the best iґve ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    Cos' I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    Itґs a very very
    Mad world
    Mad world

    Absolutely love that song, its the song I used to listen to when I was extremely down because I could relate to the lyrics. The song 'asleep' by the smiths is pretty good too but gravely depressing..it's about suicide.

    I suppose the most well known song relating to Suicide is M*A*S*H's theme song by Johnny Mandel "Suicide is Painless"

    I also really like "Falling awake" by him. It has calmed me down so many times.

    Through early morning fog I see
    Visions of the things to be
    The pains that are withheld for me
    I realize and I can see

    That suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    I try to find a way to make
    All our little joys relate
    Without that ever-present hate
    But now I know that it's too late, and

    That suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    The game of life is hard to play
    I'm gonna lose it anyway
    The losing card I'll someday lay
    So this is all I have to say

    That suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    The only way to win is cheat
    And lay it down before I'm beat
    And to another give my seat
    For that's the only painless feat

    That suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    The sword of time will pierce our skins
    It doesn't hurt when it begins
    But as it works its way on in
    The pain grows stronger watch it grin, but

    That suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    A brave man once requested me
    To answer questions that are key
    Is it to be or not to be
    And I replied 'Oh, why ask me?'

    That suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    'Cause suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    And you can do the same thing if you please
