"Human" as written by Scott Spock, Lauren Christy, Graham Edwards and Skye Alexandra Sweetnam....
You know what Simon Says
He tells you what to do
What if he told you to
Take off all your clothes
And dance in your birthday suit

Sure it's the latest craze
We all get influenced
The little secret they don't
Want you to know no no

We're only human
Seperated by our thoughts
So hang on to them
Or you'll find you might get caught
Caught up in the

Hey Monkey See and Monkey Do
Must I get brainwashed
By what's surrounding you
Didn't you know that
Every little thing's contagious
Oh yes every little thing's contagious

It's when you watch TV
In everything you see
The virus seeping through
And you start to want
What they tell you you should want

It's in the air you breathe
It's hidden up their sleeves
They're even marketing
What I say right now
Watch out!

We're only human
Seperated by our thoughts
So hang on to them
Or you'll find you might get caught
Caught up in the

Hey Monkey See and Monkey Do
Must I get brainwashed
By what's surrounding you
Didn't you know that
Every little thing's contagious
Oh yes every little thing's contagious

Na na na na na na na
We're only human separated
Na na na na na na na
We're only human separated
Only human separated

Caught up in the

Hey Monkey See and Monkey Do
Must I get brainwashed
By what's surrounding you
Didn't you know that
Every little thing's contagious
Oh yes every little thing's contagious

Hey Monkey See and Monkey Do
Must I get brainwashed
By what's surrounding you
Didn't you know that
Every little thing's contagious
Oh yes every little thing's contagious

    General CommentI love this song :) The beat is really catchy, and the video is really good.

    I think this song is about the industry, whether it's music, modeling, or acting. We all get influenced and such.

    "You know what Simon says
    He tells you what to do
    What if he told you to
    Take off all your clothes
    And dance in your birthday suit

    Sure, it's the latest craze
    We all get influenced
    The little secret they don't want you to know
    No no"

    That's like the whole showing your body thing. How so much people these days are using their bodies to gain image and money.

    "Hey, monkey see and monkey do
    Must I get brainwashed
    By what's surrounding you
    Didn't you know that
    Every little thing's contagious
    Oh yes, every little thing's contagious"

    Basically saying people get influenced by other people's actions. If someone does this, people will follow, etc. But she's not bashing, more like stating the reality, "we're only human."

    "It's when you watch TV
    In everything you see
    The virus seeping through
    And you start to want
    What they tell you you should want"

    She's using TV as an example for marketing. All the commercials showing you the latest products and such to make you look "better".

    :) That's just my opinion.

    General CommentI think this song mostly talks about human tendencies. To give in to peer pressure, or what we see around us. We have to be careful and not necessarily give in to the latest trend or what people around us are telling us to do. We're "separated by our thoughts", and that's all that truly makes us different. The lyrics mostly speak for themselves.

    General CommentThe song is self-explanatory for the most part, and I agree with what justgottakill said. It's slightly humorous that there's a verse that goes:
    "It's in the air you breathe
    It's hidden up their sleeves
    They're even marketing
    what I say right now
    Watch out!"
