This song has been the subject of much confusion, as the lyrics of the chorus include the questionable grammar “Are we human or are we dancer?”. Many mishear the word dancer as “denser”, which considerably changes the song’s meaning. However, Brandon Flowers himself said that “the lyrics were inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson about how America was raising a generation of dancers.”[Wikipedia]
