Best Lyrics from "The Human Condition"

Modern thoughts everyone should have, captured by Jon Bellion

Best Lyrics from "The Human Condition"

Jon Bellion: a singer gaining popularity by the day. I fell in love with this artist before any of his songs were on the radio. My friends and I used to go on late night drives, blasting his songs that aren't even on iTunes. It is said there are songs that stamp your life and bring you back to certain moments; that's how I feel when I listen to any of his songs. In 2016, he released "The Human Condition" and we listened to it on repeat. Every song is so beautifully written and conveys a great message. This is the album that made him famous and I went through, picking out some of my favorite lyrics.

He is the Same:

"Really puts it in perspective/ What the f**k's a bad day?"

Following some of the losses he's taken, he sings this line. One thing I was always taught was to never judge people because you don't know what they're going through. This perfectly teaches that lesson.

New York Soul Pt ii:

"I had a conversation with an angel/ She told me I'd cheat death if I stayed away from the party life"

Before entering college, I had a long talk with my friend's sister. She told me it's funny because you love partying then one morning you wake up and literally never want to party again and you're over that phase. As a freshman, that hasn't happened yet. I can understand that happening though. That lyric reminds me of that conversation and how partying is a stage of the human life and it is dangerous if you let it be more than a stage.

"Let me give the kids just a little help/ Tell 'em money is not the key to wealth"

He justifies this line by adding "cause if it can stop the pain/ how the f**k did you explain the bunch of millionaires that killed themselves". A lot of songs in this album analyze the way humans are so obsessed with material objects and need to stop. People will be a lot happier enjoying the little things versus spending their life trying to have the most expensive goods.


"It's amazing that the crown of a king doesn't change me"

This comes from his song "Fashion". Given the chorus goes, "but that's when I remember/ that we all want, we all need fashion", this is one of the songs that shows people they don't need wealth to be happy. This gets you thinking at the end when he sings, "Might be gold, but that sh*t's still a chain".

Maybe IDK:

"Although I guess if I knew tomorrow/ I guess I wouldn't need faith"

"I guess if I knew His plans, I guess He wouldn't be God"

Maybe IDK is one of my favorite songs on the album because of the words he chose to convey his message. These are two lines that should stick in your head because thinking everything is part of a bigger plan makes all the tough things easier to go through. As someone who is religious, it's calming knowing that all the obstacles in my life are for a reason.

Woke the F*ck Up

"We live in an age where everything is staged/ Where all we do is fake our feelings"

Jon Bellion managed to capture the modern dating scene in one line. Not speaking for everybody, but it's easy to argue this is exactly what goes on. The contemporary dating scene is not what it used to be and everyone knows it. Somehow we went from guys picking up girls and shaking their dad's hand, to texting someone asking if they want to watch Netflix. That's definitely not the case with every couple, but there are a lot of teenagers who's views of dating have changed.

Morning in America:

"I've been trying to keep up with all of these great expectations/ So I keep on faking"

"Cause the great expectations got us all imitating"

This is my favorite song on The Human Condition. The pressures of modern American teens are captured by the first line where he talks about perfect SAT scores. Just going off this line, there are so many things people have to do perfectly to get a fair chance of success in life and this song works to demonstrate the tradeoffs that presents and what it means to be a modern American.

Hand of God (Outro):

"When you're lost in the universe... don't lose faith"

"Your whole life's in the hand of God"

The album closes with an outro that blends all the songs together and hits on the main points of each song. One of the messages Bellion chooses to leave us with are these lines. Much like what I took from Maybe IDK, the album leaves people telling them not to stress because God has a plan.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

This Hair Mask Is Like A 5-Minute Head Detox — It's The Best Thing I've Ever Put On My Dry Scalp

It's perfect for anyone who's disguised their dandruff as snowflakes.


- Like face masks, hair masks are a great way to do a more intense treatment that tackles more specific issues like dry strands or an itchy scalp.

- I don't necessarily suffer from dandruff, but my scalp can get a little itchy post-workout and in the colder months.

- I tried the Malin + Goetz Detox Scalp Mask and it was a game changer — my scalp felt cleaner, smoother, and more refreshed than ever in five quick minutes.

- The mask is a go-to for a clean detox of my hair and scalp after I've put a lot of product in my hair or done a lot of styling to it.

Like most self-proclaimed beauty guru and product junkie, I've been obsessed with my hair and hair products for decades. For me, the goal has always been to transform my dry, brittle strands into thick, shiny, and silky ones.

For that reason, I've spent a lot of time (and money) on styling and heat products that have, at times, made my hair look great at the expense of excess product buildup and heat damage.

Remember when thin eyebrows were in? Unfortunately, me too. If you've over-tweezed your eyebrows, you know how much of a painful and slow process it is to get them back to a "normal" shape — let alone trying to keep up with the newest trends that seem to come and go every other month.

But, what does that look like nowadays? A defined, thicker brow which, I will admit, takes a lot of time and practice to perfect.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).
