The song doesn't appear to be about the movie Blade Runner at all. It appears to be about hearing something through the grape vine and provoking certain people with particular words to give more information to follow to make more music and money on. The lyrics are mixed up garbage that are designed to not be able to follow them in return to prevent having the same thing done to them causing a short life span in the area of making music (the guilt and mental illnesses setting in) at least for that particular group of band members and band name. They are very talented but need some actual lyric writing.Randy - Ludington Mi.
Amy - Perth, they do have a inbuilt four year span and I know they do but why the hell did I type six years??Luke - Manchester, Uk

I am sure everyone posting comments would agree White Zombie needs to get back together!!!Jason - Denver, Co
The song is actually about sex. Thats why the girl is making sounds in the beginning. It makes sense beacause when he is doing her, he implies that he is "more human than the average human at having sex.Eric - Washingtonville, Ny
So funny i was only 5 when this song came out and I used to think he was saying "more human BBQ man" and i remember the letterman show performance!! but one thing I dont understand is the intro with the ChickShannon - Pheonix, Az
They performed this live on David LettermanAustin - Smallsville,new England, --
why the fcuk would you say 'first..' and state your argument and then not have a second or third argument? that defeats the purpose of even saying 'first..'Martin - Brisbane, Australia
you're a fcukball kris, the 'white zombie days' is an expression for the years that white zombie was around. how hard is that to understand? its just the year 1992 - 1996 or however long the white zombie outfit was in action. jus cos someone referred to it as the 'white zombie days', doesnt mean they were making a bold satement about who or what the nature of the band was. fcuk you're dumb. please dont ever voice your opinions again. they will all way short of the mark.Martin - Brisbane, Australia
ok first there's no "White zombie days" white zombie is the name of the band that plays with Rob he used to just be called white zombie but changed itKris - Wichita, Ks
Sheri was around in the White Zombie days, go back and watch the videos closely.Spider - Greenville, Sc
"The girl at the beginning could not be Sherri Moon, she was not around during the White Zombie days"

Thats bullsh*t. She was on a White Zombie album cover

thanks robBecky - Box Springs, Ga
@ Luke from Manchester: I could swear Replicants were only given four years...Amy - Perth, Australia
The girl at the beginning could not be Sherri Moon, she was not around during the White Zombie days. My best guess would be the Bass Player Sean Ysulet, who was at the time Rob's girlfriend.Rob - Ashland, Oh
Does anyone know who the girl is at the beginning of this song? For some reason I believe that it is Zombie's wife, Sherri Moon. anyone know for sure?Becky - Box Springs, Ga
Gotta love this tune, its a classic. Not heard it for ages till today. I'm sure I heard somewhere that they got some kinda silly award for using the word "Yeeeeeeah" the most in any one song!! if not then they should!! love it. Agreed Blade Runner is a class film and in my top 10 but did you know it's from the book "Do androids dream of electric sheep"?Kd. Xxx - Bath, England
Have any of you ever noticed that Rob Zombie always has some type of TV or movie reference. I love White Zombie and Rob Zombi. My favorite song is Living Dead Girl, but I do like to rock out with More Human Than the Human (which was the Nexus slogan). I love the movie Blade Runner, also.Bridgett - Fort Worth, Tx
It doesn't refer to Deckard,it refers to Roy. When Roy [Rutger] meets his maker, Tyrel, he explains that he wants more life. To be fixed. But Tyrel says he can't and that, "you were made as well as we could make you. The candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long, and you burned very, very brightly Roy."

Roy doesn't like this, and squeezes Tyrel's head like a rotten grape.

Also, reps [Nexus 6] are made with a 4 year life span, not 6.

"More human than human" only refers to the Nexus 6 series. Because they learn to feel true emotion. Also, they are given false memories. "Gift them with a past." --it makes them more stable.

Anyway. It's my favorite movie if you didn't notice. But, I actually don't like WZ that much.

This is a good song, but the best White Zombie song is Black Sunshine.Ashley - Moncton, Canada
I never knew this had any connection to Blade Runner,but now I know. This tune rocks, but so does most all of his tunes.Dee - Indianapolis, In
Deckard was Harrison Fords Charcter, it was Rutger Hauer's character Roy who is a 'replicant' and kills his maker.Vaughn - Portland, Me
Yup, it is... The line at the end:

"I am the Nexus One, I want more life f**ker I ain't done" is reference to Decker's character in Blade runner.

Replicants are made with only six years of life but Decker hadn't experienced everything he wanted to experience so he attacked his make with the line "I want more life f**ker"
