Are we human or are we dancer? (not denser)

“Are we human or are we dancer?

There is a little controversy and question about this lyric. Does Brandon Flowers sing “are we dancer” or “are we denser”? At first everything I could find yielded “denser,” however, a comment from reader Blue turned me to the proof found here:

Are we human, or are we dancer?” He says the lyrics were inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson about how America was raising a generation of dancers.
