The Killers – Human lyrics

I did my best to notice, when the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender, I was brought but I was kind
And sometimes I get nervous when I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart... And cut the cord


Are we human, or are we dancer
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human, or are we denser

Pay my respects to grace and virtue, send my condolences to good
Give my regards to soul and romance, they always did the best they could
And so long to devotion you taught me everything I know
Wave good bye, wish me well, you gotta let me go

Are we human, or are we dancer
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human, or are we denser

Will your system be alright?
When you dream of home tonight
There is no message we're receiving
Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human, or are we dancer
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer...
You've gotta let me know

Are we human, or are we dancer
My sign is vital my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human... Or are we dancer

Are we human, or are we dancer
Are we human, or are we dancer

    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."

    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.

    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 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."
