KILLERS


Human Lyrics

Songwriters: Flowers, Brandon; Keuning, Dave Brent; Stoermer, Mark August; Vannucci, Ronnie Jr.;

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

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 goodbye, wish me well
You've gotta let me go

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

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

Are we human or are we dancers?
Are we human or are we dancers?

the song's about a friend of Brandon's who committed suicide, because he was questioning the meaningfulness of his existence. apparently the friend said 'are we human, or are we just dancing around'..

It is most certainly DANCER. I have read countless interviews, been to their concert and even own a t-shirt with the right lyrics. I also corrected the lyrics, but it will take a few more days to post

A dancer is choreographed - told what to do - our singer want to cut the cord of being a puppet, a dancer - goodbye to all the learned behaviours - he is alive but cold hands means it is if he is dead

For me the meaning is of almost being lifeless ie signs vital hands cold. I see being dancer is release from being grounded dull earthbound human just keeping to society norms, but there is a glimpse, with cord cut of a more complete satisfying free life found in spirituality a sense of eternal joy which can be, partly known now. I think my interpretation comes from my hope for life to the full, as a Christian being led by The Lord of the Dance. Also the tune with its powerful best makes me want to dance

This song is based in a poem which spoke about how we need to decide I we are humans who can make their own choices, or simply dancers who perform the choreography determined by the choreographer (society)
