The Killers – Are We 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... Cut the cord

Are we human, or are we denser
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 denser
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 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 denser
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 denser
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

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

    I love this song and am intrigued by the many interpretations of the lyrics. I haven't decided on their meaning but am puzzled by my reaction to the song because it brings me to tears every time I hear it. I think it aptly captures the wonder of realizing you have the incredible gift of being alive and so, what does being alive mean? We all get to ponder this amazing mystery.

    Being a bit of a ludite this song hadn't even made into onto my radar, but now it's cropping up all over the place and I was intrigued to know more. I first heard it on Saturday evening at a friends fortieth B'Day celebration, and thought it was an old track from his collection, obviously a popular choice scos it had everyone up dancing and joining in. Then his wife tld me that he had done a sermon on it, (he's an Anglican Minister. I obviously wasn't at the original, but I did get the very potted version. Are we human or are we dancers? (That was how I heard it and didn't find out about the big grammar debate until later, so don't know what mate heard either). To my mate this means do we continue exercising our free will and thus be Human, or do we accept the Holy Spirit into our lives and become dancers or as my lent study notes said just last night, 'Jesus Christ invites everyone to join the dance, whatever our successes or failures might be. ' (think of the song 'Dance, then wherever you may be, I am the Lord of the dance said He.) And as if that wasn't 'godincidence' enough, Radio 1 was still playing when I came in from work as I hadn't turned over from when my husband was listening this morning, and what should be playing. And so I came and Goggled, saw all the huge debates about the lyrics and here I am now!
    I don't think there is a right or wrong answer, the lyrics speak to you based upon your personal experince and where you are at right now, but for me it has become something very special and profound.

    I think the author saw an open door for him but his mate tried to stop him from entering through that open door, so the author felt restricted by his mate but he also hesitate to be denser (restricting) against his mate by trying to highlight his best parts and of his mate too, while asking his mate to let him be devoted first to himself by entering through his open door, and accept his first love who includes his mate too about who's "heart still beating" the author still wants to hear soon. So the author tries to be kind with him and his mate too even though he expresses his point of view to his mate.
