Jocelyn Eve Stoker (born 11 April 1987), better known by her stage name Joss Stone, is an English soul singer, songwriter and actress. Stone rose to fame in late 2003 with her multi-platinum debut album, The Soul Sessions, which made the 2004 Mercury Prize shortlist.

(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
Oh, oh

I wish I could fly
Like a jet plane
I could read the minds of my enemies
Worship a poster 
Carry a lunchbox
Have a superhero
To come and rescue me
I know only human
Only made with flesh and blood
I should have such expectations
Waiting here for love

Whatever happened to the heroes?
Fast food, fast cars and remote control
I just need someone to look up to
To help me down this winding road
So whatever happened to the heroes?

Joe Demagio
Martin Luther King
Mother Teresa
Princess Diana
Now it's Kurt Cobain
Take a pill for the pain
Celebrity mentality
Before you even spell your name

I know I'm full of imperfections
Baby aren't we all
But I could use a good example to
Stop before I fall
(Stop before I fall, what happened to)

Whatever happened to the heroes?
(Oh, oh)
Fast food, fast cars and remote control
(Remote control)
I just need someone to look up to
To help me down this winding road
(This winding road)
So whatever happened to the heroes?

We fall to the waste line
Give into the darkside
Buried alive
Before my eyes
Been brought to life
A zillion times
They like to build you up
Just to break you down, down, down
Just to break you down, oh

Whatever happened to the heroes?
(Whatever happened to the heroes?)
Fast food, fast cars and remote control
(Oh, yeah, what happened to the heroes, what happened to the heroes?)
I just need someone to look up to
To help me down this winding road
(Help me down, help me down)
So whatever happened to the heroes?
Whatever happened to the heroes?

(Whatever happened to the heroes?)
Fast food, fast cars and remote control
(Oh, yeah)
I just need someone to look up to
(To look up to)
To help me down this winding road
(Yeah, oh, oh)
