hard to sleep with that fish knocking at my door

Gary Jules - MadWorld
(from the
Donnie Darko SoundTrack)

(clicking on the song title will take you to MTV where you can watch the video.; clicking on the movie title will take you to the super-cool movie site - requires flash)


All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going no where
Going no where
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 I 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 new me
Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me
And I find I 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
Enlarging your world
Mad world

Thanks to the wonder that is Donnie Darko that song is one of my all time favorites and that moment in the movie when it is being played is one of the most powerful and amazing movie moments I have seen. I'm a huge Darko fan and I am now aching to go play this song! Happy Thursday!

that song always makes me cry, although it doesn't feel so true anymore...not all the way true, anyway...besides which it's odd because i had a dying dream this morning. um, something about a cruise ship sinking about 10 feet from shore.
i've seen too many ads for Poseidon or something.
or maybe it's oldben's fault for using it as a metaphor for our existence yesterday...

Thank you for that, and to jenn see for adding the sound.

(I'm off to cry too now.)

(or watch the movie again, not sure.)
