The human condition
We try to jot it all down
People kept good notes in Cairo now they're somewhere underground
We built machines to find them, someday they'll get buried too
The human condition
At least there's always something to do

The human condition
Starring up at the stars
Intelligent life was swinging by but they froze to death on Mars
We sent an ATV with a pail and a shovel but the tires sunk into
The human condition
Will leave a little dirt on your shoes

The human condition
Merging in where it can
A wave's not really a wave when it's just a finger in the middle of their hand
It’s not a friendly gesture, but their point will stick like glue
The human condition
Man, what’s happening to you?

The human condition
Could use a dollar or two
What's passed off as success, is just a bigger cage in the very same zoo
Money sits next to a french fry on the floorboards of a car that is otherwise clean
The human condition
Ain't nothing for free

The human condition
The birds and the bees
You're either humming around or getting stung, there's not much in between
When the person you love loves you back, you better hold on with both feet
The human condition
Ain’t life sweet
The human condition
Let's go get something to eat
