    Helicopters

    This is where the helicopters came to take me away
    This is where the children used to play

    This is only half a mile away from the attack
    This is where my life changed in a day
    And then it changed back
    Buried in the din of rotor noise and close explosions
    I do my best to synthesize the sounds and my emotions
    This is where the allies bombed the school,
    They say by mistake
    Here nobody takes me for a fool, just for a fake
    Later at the hotel bar, the journalists are waiting
    I hurry back to my guitar while they're commiserating

    And I'll be leaving soon
    I'll be leaving soon

    Just as soon as we were on the ground
    We were back in the jet
    Just another three day foreign tour we'd never forget
    It's hard to sympathize with all this devastation
    Hopping 'round from site to site like tourists on vacation

    And I'll be leaving soon
    I'll be leaving soon

    I can't help anyone cause everyone's so cold
    Everyone's so skeptical of everything they're told
    And even I get sick of needing to be sold

    Though it's only half a month away, the media's gone
    An entertaining scandel broke today, but I can't move on
    I'm haunted by a story and I do my best to tell it
    Can't even give this stuff away, why would I sell it?
    Everybody's laughing, while at me they point a finger
    A world that loves its irony must hate the protest singer

    So I'll be leaving soon
    I'll be leaving soon
    I'll be leaving soon
    I'll be leaving soon
