“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?”
What is a human, as opposed to a dancer in this song? A human is mortal, base, ordinary, whereas a dancer is divine, spiritual, achieving ones full potential. In the music video, it seems that this spiritual nature is symbolized by the animals, particularly the eagle. To be a dancer is to be more than what you are, in every way: more free, more yourself, more of who you are meant to be. Will you remain human, or will you close you eyes, cut the cord, and become a dancer?
