Lyrics for Helicopter by Bloc Party:

Verse 1
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

Pre-Chorus
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

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

Verse 2
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

Pre-Chorus
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

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

Guitar solo

Chorus
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)

Song Facts

Bloc Party’s breakthrough hit, which is speculated to be about former U.S. president George Bush. In response to the interpretations, Okereke stated that he’d actually written the lyrics of “Helicopter” about himself.

It’s frustrating that people attribute something to certain songs and that’s not what they’re about at all. It’s a common misconception that “Helicopter” is about President Bush. It’s kinda patronizing.
