Bloc Party Helicopter Lyrics

Last updated: 06/22/2012 11:00:00 AM

North TO south
Running on
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
He's gonna save the world
He's gonna...

Are you hoping for a miracle?(x4)

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? (x4)

Are you hoping for a miracle? (It's not enough) (x4)

I love this song,so true! | Reviewer: Darcy | 6/22/12

I love this song so much,and now I know what the lyrics are! This is so true because, I live in Dublin,Ireland, and visited America. When I when there, they said they don't have sizes for me in womens and that the smallest they have is xsmall. There are a lot of obese people in America, and people need to realize that America is just another place,not the controler of the earth! Also,I have a shoutout to weird but true, you are a racially insesitive scum, how dare you call someone the n word!!! Also, British people are not pussies because you say so! You are just trying to hide your weakness by trolling people. To my opinion, Toby Keith is horrible,and if he was a good singer, he's horrible now that you listen to him! Instead of trying to hurt peoples' feelings, why do you do something useful that you need, maybe like passing 2nd grade! If you need to talk to me, feel free! How agrees with me? peace! from Ireland

youre an idiot. | Reviewer: lmao | 3/15/11

This song is as one person stated about a son and father he uses America not because of stereotypes but being the America is in a sense the "Son" of Europe. but i guess some people are too simple minded so now to use a language that you can understand


thank you.

trollin | Reviewer: Zhftn | 8/19/10

Just a few things...
-"weird but true" was probably a troll post. Pay the anon no mind.
-Oh wow, stereotypes, how horrible! It's just a song, and I doubt it's meant to be taken so seriously, regardless of how true or otherwise it may be.
-Given the posts I've seen here, I agree with the person who brought up The Dead Kennedy's. The song may have been a flame war in disguise.
-The grammar and spelling I have seen in these "reviews" is atrocious. My grammar probably isn't perfect, but Jesus Christ people.
-I like this song, and I don't give a damn how stereotypical or whatever the lyrics are.

Finally! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/25/10

I loved the song before I looked up the lyrics, and now that I have looked them up, I love the song that much more. I live in America, and all I want to do is get out. I'm tired of people who stereotype, and then get offended when they're stereotyped themselves. I get called a faggot because I don't meet America's social standards, and it's bullshit. This song offends Americans because it's TRUE. They don't make clothes small enough for me in America, because most of America is fat. In reality, America isn't that great, unless you're a mindless conformist. All I can say is thank you Bloc Party for an awesome song!

at weird but true | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/3/10

WOW @weird but true....
you say you hate other cultures, well then you are maybe the reason why there's so many stereotypes about americans.. you are such an ignorant and i feel sorry for the rest of america that, you know, have a brain and aren't that biased. If you're offended by the song, then maybe you're so insecure that you need to call the british "fags" and "pussys". And if they do are what you call them, why in hell would you listen to their music. Just so you know, all stereotype aren't true. Don't believe me? i dare you to find ONE stereotype that is entirely true... if you do find one then you are more ignorant than i thought. and the thing that i really don't understand is, you said "And we r obeese" but again you're bias because not all of you are. See, streotype again.. you really should look at yourself in the mirror before you call anybody anything. And for the record, your country isnt superior and "this nigger" happens to be your president.
To everybody, if you want another good song from bloc party, go check Pioneers. I put that song on repeat for a whole day and i never get tired!!

This song is definitely not a dig at anyone. It's even been proven BY THE LEAD SINGER that it isn't aimed at anyone. The lines about the father and son making mistakes have nothing to do with Bush and Bush Sr. The fact that he used Americans and Europeans as examples doesn't mean he's trying to stereotype people. Just listen to the lyrics, enjoy the song, and stop taking things so seriously ESPECIALLY stereotypes because that's all they are is stereotypes they're not true and anyone with a brain should be able to figure that out. Stereotypes make the world funnier and an easier place to live in so learn to except that they're not real and that they are funny.

BTW since this has bascially turned into a youtube fight, I am an American, I thoroughly enjoy stereotypes and yes my stereotype of an "Aussie" would be a guy who says crikey and has a kangaroo in his backyard. NO that does not mean that I BELIEVE that every "Aussie" has a kangaroo in his backyard, it's just funny. And i'm sure that every country in the world has their own stereotype for americans and that's their right. If that's what makes them laugh and they don't actually BELIEVE in the stereotype then it's perfectly fine.

I love It | Reviewer: yoyo | 12/19/09

clearly this song is spose to make people agrivated and angry towards each other, because all bloc party songs are made to provoke people in some way inorder for them to see where bloc party is coming from. all their songs make political, social and economical comments, to see how people will react, and state what everyone is thinking. therefore noone should be offended, just reread your history books/watch the news.

ignorantpeople | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/8/09

i'm american and people who call the british fags, or who cal Obama a nigger are fucking ignorant idiots and portray Americans as a bad people. So you fucking white supremacist bastard get off your high horse and quit watching child pronography. BTW this song is the shit :)

Be chill and listen yo | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/8/09

Well leave it to the arrogant people to call america arrogant. I'm an American and I like this song as well as Bloc Party and I have respect for my English mates across the river(that was a joke just in case people wanted to interpret it literally). As for the Toby Keith guy, he's just tryin to start shit don't pay him any mind, no one is that ignorant. But for the future for all of the non-Americans, America is the melting pot of the world and all of your ideals are contained in our country through some distant family so think twice before calling us ignorant. Every country has a few idiots here and there but you just hear about ours cuz everyone is worried about whats goin down in America, admit it.

This is aimed at "lala" and anon "wierd but true" | Reviewer: MmaF96 | 11/22/09

love this song and Bloc Party are awesome

Lala: Bloc Party are actually english. Theyre from east London.

Anon"wierd but true": you bastard.

do you actually think that ALL british people are "faggots" and "pussies". you say "nigger" about Obama but if you think hes so rubbish then how did he get elected in the first place? and also why do you listen to Bloc Party when you feel so strongly (and wrongly) about ALL black people? did you know the lead singer Kele is black?

im british by the way but it shouldnt matter

truth | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/5/09

I am american and I like this song a lot..
it's pointless to say that americans dont eat junk food or that we aren't an obese country..
you just have to go out to the streets and see it for yourself.

haha wow. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/2/09

hey get the remix. it's called. helicopter weird science remix ft. peaches. it's like orgasms to your ears. xD P.S. the us has the highest obese population in the world, the most crime, and the most murder. Just saying haha. fuckers... xD jk... but really...

Seriously Guys ... | Reviewer: Clayton | 10/24/09

This is a song, and a mighty good song. So if you don't like it, why on earth would you look at the lyrics unless you where looking for an argument which you don't actually have to show yourself? Grow a pair and start having a good music taste.

wierd but true | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/21/09

this song is decently "rasict" but it's a pretty good song... I'm American and I hate other cultures (usually) so just let the faggot British people think what they want cause there all a bunch of pussys in the end. And we r obeese but we r also the supurior power of the world once this nigger in office gets thrown pretty much good song, good band, but there still pussies bcause their british so americans dnt worry bout it we have plenty of things to make fun of the british and every other race just listen to toby kieth...he'll tell u how great america is
