I fixed the lyrics.
The lyrics is dancer how do you denser flowers even said it was dancer in a interview with rolling stone.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Flowers said that he was irritated over the confusion: "It's supposed to be a dance song, [the beat] goes with the chorus...If you can't put that together, you're an idiot. I just don't get why there's a confusion about it."
Brandon Flowers, the lead-singer of The Killers, has said that the song is a mild-political statement inspired by the quote "America is rasing a generation of dancers". I think the song is generally about today's generation losing their morals and prioritising irresponsibly. In regards to 'human and dancer', he is obviously implying that they're two different things. In the second verse he sings a send-off of morals ("grace and virtue", "good", "soul and romance", "devotion") - implying that humans used to/should have. As I see it, he uses "dancer" as a metaphor - dancers follow leads, they conform.
The song was wrote, after brandon was inspired and confused by a comment made which said something along the lines of "America is raising a nation of dancers". This means each person is being raised to follow a routine, and this is totally taking away what it means to human and individual. This is why the band as are we human or are we dancer. Hope that helps anyone looking for a bit of info. Great tune by the way! Piiece of pure art.
Oh. My. Gosh. It is 'dancer' not 'denser'! Geeez. Lol I'm sorry, but I just don't see why the hackin heck they would say 'denser'. It doesn't even make sense anyways. If you still think it's denser then just go read wikipedia! Lol he (Flowers) says that if you don't get the lyrics, then you're an idiot. It was just meant to be a dance song.
I mean, come one people, it's not that complicated. Seriously.
The official line for this song (taken from their website) is are we human or are we dancer. Not denser.
Here's the quote from the killer's website, so keep it right!
"Those familiar with the band's oeuvre will recognize their signature in the synth-heavy "Human, " four minutes of sweeping, epic rock, on which Flowers sings: "My sign is vital/ My hands are cold/ And I'm on knees, looking for the answer/ Are we human, or are we dancer? " He says the lyrics were inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson about how America was raising a generation of dancers."
