(Check the meanin')
When I'm low and I'm weak and I'm lost I don't know who I can trust
Paranoia the destroyer, uh comes knockin' on my door
You know the pain drifts to days turns to nights but it slowly will subside
And when it does I take a step, I take a breath, I wonder what I'll find

Can you hear what I'm sayin'?
Got my mind meditatin' on love, love
Feel what I'm sayin'
Got my mind meditatin' on love, love
The human condition
The human condition

Too much blood, too much hate, turn off the set
There's got to be something more
When Mohamed, Allah, Buddha, Jesus Christ
Are knocking down my door
I'm agnostic getting God, but man she takes a female form
There's no time no space no law, we're out here on our own

Can you hear what I'm sayin'?
Got my mind meditatin' on love, love
Feel what I'm sayin'
Got my mind meditatin' on love, love
Check the meanin'
The human condition
Check the feelin'
The human condition

Guess it's life doin' it's thing
Making you cry, making you think, yeah life dealin' it's hand
Making you cry and you don't understand life
Doin' it's thing, making you cry now, making you think of pain
Doin' it's thing, making you cry, yeah making you sing

Don't say it, don't say it's too late
Don't, don't say it's too late
(It's never too late, it's never too late)
Don't, don't say it's too late
(It's never too late)
Don't, don't say it's too late
The human condition, the big decisions
The human condition, the big decisions

I'm like a fish with legs, I fell from the tree, I made a rocket
(Check the meanin')
I made a wheel, all right I made a rocket
(Check the feelin')
I swam the ocean
(Check the meanin')
I saw a moon
(Say a prayer)
I seen the universe
(And beyond)
I see you
(Check the feelin')
I see me
(Check the meanin')
That's my reality
And while the city sleeps we go walkin'

Come on, it's a beautiful world
And when the city sleeps we go walkin'
We find a hole in the sky and then we start talkin'
And then we say Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Buy us some time, buy us some time

Hear what I'm sayin'
Can you hear what I'm sayin'?
Can you hear what I'm sayin'?
Can you hear what I'm sayin'?
Ooh hoo hoo, oh mmm mmm mmm
It's gonna be alright
