.:Mad World:. by TDI-Gwen .:Mad World:. by TDI-Gwen
Intro
Inspired by the fanfiction "See it Swimming" by roachpatrol
---
"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

Stop! Comment Time
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?

Enjoy~
