"Helicopter" as written by and Kele/lissack Okereke....
North to South
Empty
Running on
Bravado
As if to say, as if to say
As if to say he doesn't like chocolate
He's born a liar, he'll die a liar
Some things will never be different

Stop being, so American
There's a time and there's a place
So James Dean
So blue jeans
Gonna save the world
He's gonna

Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?

Three out of five, three out of five (it's not enough)
Six out of ten
Better luck next time
Just like his dad, just like his dad (the same mistakes)
Some things will never be different
Hungry and dumb, hungry and dumb (so wait in line)
Queuing up for some more junk food
It's not my fault, it's not my fault (just this once)
They're getting so much younger

Why can't you be, more European?
Bastard child of guilt and shame
Bury your head in the sand
I'm thinking six, six, six
I'm thinking six

Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?

Are you hoping for a miracle? (it's not enough)
Are you hoping for a miracle? (it's not enough)
Are you hoping for a miracle? (it's not enough)
Are you hoping for a miracle? (it's not enough)

    General CommentFirst of all, congratulations to all 100 people who think they are brilliant for interpreting that the song is about Bush.

    What I want to know - what only one or two have even considered in their arguments - is the relevance of the song title. Why "Helicopter"? If it is anti-American, anti-imperialist, anti-Bush, whatever, how does Helicopter tie in to that?
