Denser or dancer? November 6, 2008

There has been much confusion and debate over a lyric in the chorus of the song “Human” by The Killers. This is regarding whether or not Brandon Flowers is saying “denser” or “dancer”, when posing the question “Are we human or are we denser/dancer?”

Some have said that the lyrics do make sense because “dancer” might be appealing to the “marionette” sense of the word, in which case the song is asking whether we are human and make our own independent decisions or whether we just dance in a show made by, and perhaps even made for, someone else.

On Amazon, the editorial review for the album states the song says “Are we human, or are we dancer?” and also says that Flowers said the lyrics were inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson about how America was raising a generation of dancers.

Anygays, I just saw their apperance on the EMA on MTV, and it was sooo good and sooo cool. Funky backround too! Wow, imagine being there.
