"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Mad World.
What mad world?
My world seems just fine, not mad at all.

Mad world, huh?
No, I live in a fine world.
Very well-to-do I’d say.

Mad world.
What’s so mad?
The hustle and bustle on the streets?
The broken eyed students and their bruised backs?

Mad world.
Mad because of what?
Because of the passive remarks and apathetic stares?
Mad because there are conflicts that lead to death?

Mad World:
Society and its standards
The cost of living
The need to fight and push yourself above everyone else because

you have to be the best.

No teamwork, only lonesome success.
No help, just forced smiles and laughter.
No world.
Mad World.
