All around me are familiar faces

Ouna, Alanna, George, Jon, Thayet they're all here.

Worn out places, worn out faces

Pirate's Swoop, the palace, even the tower isn't the same. Everyone's worn out because the life isn't really there any more.

Bright and early for the daily races

I wake up at sunrise out of habit. Without Daine at my side, I just kind of don't feel the same.

Going nowhere, going nowhere

Jon says I'm not fit to go on missions. So unless war starts I'm bound to my tower.

Their tears are filling up their glasses

Many of my friends here are tearing up. We're all remembering the time we had with her.

No expression, no expression

They try to hide it, but I know the tears are flowing from their eyes.

Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow

I look down at my feet as the sobs begin to rack my body. I feel someone squeeze my hand. I look at my hand. Little Sarralyn is holding my hand. I pick her up and hold her. Alanna is holding the infant Rikash.

No tomorrow, no tomorrow

I just don't want to live on now that she's gone.

And I find it kind of funny; I find it kind of sad

We would talk about what would happen if I died first. I didn't expect that she would die before me. But then again, neither did she.

The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had

Now all I dream of joining her in the Black God's realm.

I find hard to tell you; I find it hard to take

When Jon had told me, I couldn't believe him.

When people run in circles it's a very, very,

Now I'm just a hollow shell following a routine. I'm just going in circles over and over again.

Mad world, mad world

She didn't deserve it. She really didn't. This world is just mad.

Children waiting for the day they feel good

Sarralyn and was overcome with grief when her mum died. Rikash was too young to know what was going on.

Happy birthday, happy birthday

Daine had been out getting a birthday gift for one of her friends in the Queen's Riders.

And I feel the way that every child should

Sarra had once told me that you have to be sad when someone dies. If you weren't, there was some thing wrong.

Sit and listen, sit and listen

I begin to tell my children the stories of Daine and I, and all the time we spent together.

Went to school and I was nervous

On Rikash's first day at school he was very nervous, but he was happy that his dad was there, to see him off.

No one knew me, no one knew me

He hadn't known anyone.

Hello teacher tell me, what's my lesson?

She had said to do a paper on how much you love your mother because it was nearing Mother's Day. So he told the teacher that he didn't remember her. She had died when he was a baby.

Look right through me, look right through me

From that moment on he had gotten sympathy stares from the other children.

I find it kind of funny; I find it kind of sad

I'm dying now.

The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had

I'll finally get to see her.

I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take

When Rikash and Sarra found out, they had the same reaction as I had when Daine died.

When people run in circles it's a very, very,

I want them to know I love them. But it's too late. I'm gone

Mad world, mad world, enlarging your world

Mad world
