Human

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
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'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 all right
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
 
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?
 
Are we human or are we dancer?
 
Are we human or are we dancer?
 
  • are we dancer:

    References a quote by Hunter S. Thompson: "America is raising a generation of dancers, afraid to take one step out of line." So it can be understood to mean "Are we still human or are we mindless machines who do as they're told?".

Thanks!

The iconic first line of the chorus, while slightly ungrammatical, references a quote by Hunter S. Thompson: "America is raising a generation of dancers, afraid to take one step out of line." So it can be understood to mean "Are we still human or are we mindless machines?".
