--- "Mad World" by Gary Jules (Adam Lambert cover)
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 And 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 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...
Children waiting for the day they feel good Happy birthday Happy birthday Made to 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 It's a very, very... mad world... mad world... Mad World Mad World

I must have a thing for sad stories, because See It Swimming mad me want to cry, no matter how many times I've read it. Inspired by that faction coupled with feeling completely detached from the world for a day, I drew Gamzee being killed by his beloved son...only I used my own fangrub, Chasee, for this picture, and my backstory for this scene is pretty different. Still, patricide takes place and the ideas are practically the same.
Mad World seemed like a good song to listen to while I drew this...so was Volatile Times...I just learned about the cover by Adam Lambert a few minutes ago, so you know... Shut up... I just wanted this creepy. Maybe I should have posted this on Halloween, eh?
