This song is a song of satire. As humans we always seem to want more, and when we get what we think we wanted there is something new that entices us. The message of this song is to prove that unless we allow ourselves be satisfied, we will never be satisfied.Listen to "The Human Condition" below.
There will always be a new pair of shoes, a higher amount of money to earn, a skinner frame, a nicer car … The cycle never ends and it will never be enough. It’s not bad to want, but I do think our society has a skewed view of Wants vs. Needs. We are set up to constantly compare ourselves when really, we should be thankful for all we have. I say this because I live this comparison everyday. I wrote this song as a reminder to myself that these desires can be laughable and THAT can sometimes make the want lessen.
