Song Description

Twangy, uptempo song from Worldview's "Our Condition" album. About the human condition, life, love, humour, behaviour, experience. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

We make light of our condition
It's the only thing to do
And I laugh louder longer
Cos I've got it worse than you
We look into our condition
It's a natural thing to do
And I look harder further
Cos I've got no work to do

And all the insults and the injuries
That come through human agency
I trace them back one more degree
Cos we're all doing our best aren't we?

No you are not to blame
I want to make that clear
I want to make that plain
You are not to blame
Oh this I do believe
No matter what they say

We make light of our condition
It's the only thing to do
And it gives us such rich pickings
That we can't afford not to
We lose sight of our condition
When there's love to turn our heads
But I don't have that distraction
Cos it hasn't turned mine yet

And all those sick ideas and crazy schemes
By which you made a mess of me
You chose them through necessity
Cos we're all doing our best aren't we?

And you are not to blame
I want to make that clear
I want to make that plain
You are not to blame
Oh this I do believe
No matter what they say
And when you cheated and lied
With a wink and a smile
It was all brought on by
Our condition

And for the suffering that comes to us
The buck must surely stop with God
But I never could believe in him
No I never could wish that on him

But you are not to blame
I hope I've made that clear
I hope I've made my case
No you are not to blame
Yeah this I will believe
No matter what they say

And if you drank yourself blind
And chose to punch out our lights
I'd hold no grudge against you
I'll always put it down to
Our condition
Our condition
Our condition
This thing called living
