The Killers - Human (lyrics)

by osbl30 • 5,032,457 views

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...

And I'm on my knees, Lookin' for the answer Is it "denser" Or is it "Dancer"?

Perhaps you're correct but I still think that 'denser' fits better.

Every time I'm upset, I come back to this video to see people argue on if it's "denser" or "dancer." Then I feel better.

Quelques minutes de musique peuvent sembler dérisoires au regard de ce qui est arrivé aujourd'hui. Mais pour moi, pour nous, c'est important. La dérision est une arme de précision que j'utilise et utiliserais TOUJOURS contre l'intolérance, le fanatisme, et la barbarie.  Spécialement pour CHARLIE HEBDO En mémoire des victimes de l'attentat barbare d'aujourd'hui, RIP.

"dancer" does makes sense. to be human is to have life and choice, to be dancer is to be controlled as puppets on strings or "cords" (cut the cord) . Now.. are we human or are we dancer???

cool, cause " denser " sounds stupid :)

Brandon Flowers actually said it was "dancer" because of the quote "We are raising a generation of dancers".  Why are we still arguing about this 7 years later?

Human means we can do what we want when we want. Dancer is refering to a puppet dancing on string. Having someone move you were they want you to go, thinking for you, and living our life like a routine that is all planned out. If you listen to the other lyrics you can see that dancer is actually refering to a puppet.

With all the little bickerings going on in the comments about it being denser or dancer made me think it went: Are we human or are we dentures mind manipulation to the next level m8

it is dancer. Meaning the same like everyone else who follows orders from many people in authority. Example inhumain people or corrupt governments. Or it could also mean inhumain criminals and such...

I was amused by all the fuss  -  dancer/denser.  It's an American singing dummies. It's the accent. I was waiting for someone to say it should be DARNCER! More relevant is that "recieved"  should be "RECEIVED"  in the lyrics display. Good Lord!

Brandon Flowers himself said in an interview that it's "dancer", not "denser", and he doesn't know why the latter would make sense. If "dancer" doesn't make sense, it's probably because all Brandon said about the meaning is that this generation is "a generation of dancers".

The band said it is dancer it's a reference to what generation the band members are conciders (I.e a generation such as the baby boomers, or 90s kids)

For everyone arguing about the lyrics, it is "dancer." There was a famous quote by an army general (I can't recall the name.) He said to some troop or whatever, are we human, or are we dancers.

It's dancer NOT denser ... Straight from Wikipedia: There remains confusion and debate over the line "Are we human, or are we dancer?" in the song's chorus due to its grammar.[9] Debate raged across the Internet over whether the lyric said "dancer", "dancers" or "denser", a misunderstanding which elicited conflicting interpretations of the song's meaning.[10][11] On the band's official website, the biography section states that Flowers is singing "Are we human, or are we dancer?" and also says that the lyric was inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson, where he stated America was raising "a generation of dancers".[12][13] In an interview with Rolling Stone, Flowers said that he was irritated over the confusion about the lyric and also that fans were unhappy with the song's dance beat: "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."[14] ... Thank you and goodnight!!!

it's "dancer" they've said it in an interview....I think the imagery speaks of 'dancers' as almost like 'puppets'. Brandon is speaking of letting go, "platform of surrender" "cut the cord" "close your eyes, clear your heart" This "letting go" is to cease to be "Human" because he no longer has life, (eyes closed, cleared heart) and he feels like a "Dancer", a puppet on strings.

Always thought it was "Are we humans, or are we dancers?". Thought that was the dumbest line ever.

you wrote "denser" instead "dancer"

Great song: gets never old ! A wrong written "Dencer" = Dancer ,  is supposed to be a nonsense,  or a grammatical mistake. Putting strange-equivocal words on it, rises the attention : it's  an old trick !
Report spam or abuse
It is not actually a grammatical mistake, it is just using a form of the word dance that is pretty much never used. They changed it into a collective noun, parallel to human. So: Are we human ( rather than humans) is correct because we interpret the singular form as being collective. They just did the same thing with dancer.

Lol i always thought he said "dancer" lmao

Right, its dancer but if you prefer denser or feel it is denser, by all means sing that. Music is art and art is about interpretation.
