"Hello Helicopter" as written by and Matthew Scott Taylor Tony Richard Thaxton....
Hello helicopter, are you here to stay?
Bodies, rest and motion fighting night and day
Well it's kill or be killed
And one day we'll get the best of them
Hello helicopter, will you be my friend?
Will you take me away?

Hello helicopter,have you heard the news?
No one gives a shit about the things they do
We all waste and consume, destroy and ruin everything we touch
It's easy not to think when you're not told that much

I'm not saying anything you haven't heard before
I'm just trying to understand the way we are

Hello helicopter, are you lost out there?
Swimming through the garbage dump that fills the air
In several more years no one will care
They'll be rich and dead
So let somebody else devise a cure for it

I'm not saying anything you haven't heard before
I'm just trying to understand the way we are

Nobody seems to care
Nobody ever learns
Hello helicopter, are you here to stay?
Bodies, rest and motion fighting night and day
Well it's kill or be killed
And one day we'll get the best of them
Hello helicopter, are you listening?

Nobody seems to care
Nobody ever learns

Are we ever going to get it right?
Are we ever going to start making sense
And stop pretending that we care?

Are we ever going to get it right?
Are we ever going to start making sense
And stop pretending that we care?

Are we ever going to get it right?
Are we ever going to start making sense
And stop pretending...

Hello helicopter, are you here to stay?
Bodies, rest and motion fighting night and day
Well it's kill or be killed
And one day we'll get the best of them
Hello helicopter, are you listening?

    General Commenti had it listed as damn/fuck before. was just taking a wild guess from the lousy censored mtv rip.

    General Commentit's a prayer. replace helicopter with 'god' and you'll see what i mean.

    and it's still talking about war, global warming, and consumerisim, just asking for help on trying to fix it...

    General Commentjustin pierre said this song was written because they wanted to write a political song, but from an apathetic point of view because they feel as if they can not really make a difference.

    General Commentto me this song is about a person living in a war torn nation like iraq. he/she is talking to the solders in the helicopter. the person wants to be taken away from whats going on around him/her eg. Hello helicopter, will you be my friend? Will you take me away?
