From the department of false dualisms

From the chorus of "Human", the third single on The Killers' Day & Age:

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?
Derisive comments about banality aside, I think Mr. Flowers should get up off his knees and realize the obvious solution to this seemingly intractable philosophical problem.

Also, forcing a subject-object disagreement in order to rhyme "dancer" with "answer"???
