Human by The Killers

Culture Shock LogoHere is a spark sent in by a Static Listener:

There is a lot of discussion on the web about exactly what the lyrics "Are we dancer?" mean, but through a Christian lens I see it as asking the question, Aren't we in fact something more, something grander, than simply human? Of course, as Christians, we know we are something more than human, that there is something more to us than flesh and bone i.e. the everlasting spirit God has given us. I think this song points the way towards that discussion.

Lyrics

Discuss this song

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 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?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Hear 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 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?

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
Are we human or are we dancer?

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?
