Human Condition

Play MP3

Don't underestimate your situation
See yourself through someone else's eyes
We all have the same human condition
No one else will ever live your life

As we wind on down the road
We live in fear, and die alone
As you lie there in your bed
Don't forget the doctor said
The enemy has outposts in your head

In the half-awakened dreamtime
Where the nightmares often start
This is how we build a future
Madmen making empires of the heart

When you bite back on your anger
And you choke your feelings down
Another hero bites the dust
Another dream returns to rust
But never let the bastards grind you down

When I wake up every morning
In the sunshine of your love
Sometimes it feels like I'm still dreaming
And still too much is not enough

Open up your heart to real affection
The wonders of the world are yours and mine
Don't sit there and count the cost
It's better to have loved and lost
Than to be a loser all your life
I said don't sit there and count the cost
It's better to have loved and lost
Than to be a loser all your life

Alan Pout, 1998
