Oh, it's a strange day
In such a lonely way
I saw some children dance
I watched my life in a trance
And the people around me
Seemed so glad to be here
Will my time pass so slowly
On the day that I fear?

And the noise that surrounds me
Pulls so loud in my head
From the promise that healed us
To the lies that I said
Oh, it's a strange day
In such a lonely way
Some people look down on me,
I know they like what they see

Strange day,
Such a strange day
Such a strange day

    General Comment"I know they like what they see"/"I hope they like what they see" might be just as pessimistic as the rest of the song. It might be that the line is about people seeing the suffering of the singer and liking it, a bit like in Joy Division's Atrocity Exhibition or the ancient Romans enjoying seeing gladiators getting killed.
