this'd be like a 3.5 for me if it didn't have Human, worst song they could ever make.

well, that's an interesting question. firstly is the basic proposition - perhaps brandon is asking us to consider the possibility that they are two entirely different entities - human and dancer as mutually exclusive beings. this, if true, then raises the further question of which category he would fall into - now given the idealistic content and tone, my instincts swing toward 'dancer', but then he cleverly subverts my expectations by mentioning in the line before 'and i'm on my knees' - to me this clearly disqualifies him from the dancing category as there are a strictly limited number of moves that can be performed in this position.

On the other hand, he may (auteur and poet that he is) be cleverly using something known as a 'metaphor'. now, when i first considered this it went way over my head, which is natural when listening to such intellectually probing music, but it began to make more sense as i engaged my feeble (by comparison) mind - the real question here is whether we choose the 'human' path of conformity, or the free, questing, spiritual path - the 'dancer' if you will. In a veritable coup of prosaic genius, Brandon has used one of our most uninhibited activities as a surrogate for freedom. Even more perceptively, he is perhaps hinting at the power of music to set us free - a gateway drug, as it were, to true transcendence, as encapsulated in that particular line.

apologies for my brevity - i feel that words simply cannot do justice to the voltaire-like levels of thought contained within the song.

i believe in 100 years time, when we talk about the greats of philosophy, we will be talking about hume, kant, russel, flowers et al.

Some good songs on this one, some are less than others, also a really big change for The Killers in sound.
