Recycled Part A. Recycle

call me down, the time is here
reminding you to slow the wheel
now, nearing the end of the day
look, never a moment too soon, or late

count the hours, the weeks, the days
forcing natures' slow decay
here, as we look down on you there
you, falling on into your webs of despair

man! you had it all your own way
now, salvaging blocks of decay
clean the scene
change machines!

 

Recycled Part B. Cybernetic Consumption

[instrumental]

 

Recycled Part C. Recycle Countdown

talk away, the die is cast
all the day, the reasons last
just look what is happening here
see, never a day without fear... it's here

call me down, I have to share
before the world I stand declared
hear these words at the end of the day
come never a moment too soon, or late

man! you've had it all your own way
now, salvaging blocks of decay
clean the scene
change machines!

 

Recycled Part D. Automaton Horrorscope

"Webs of concrete, giving off waste dust that
marks the search of an age of a thousand vast
empires, sweeping away legends untold to
human ears. While shafts of steel clutch the
stars, natural supplies... once numerous...
now lapse into eerie silence. Recycled energy
becomes the only form of life, as it was, and
now new forms are moulded from patterns
already used in a struggle to survive!"

you had me thinking that I'd lost my mind
but no, it was you
thought you'd make it to a better time
'til now, but it's through
your castles made of sand
hold out your helpless hands
going down down down down down down down

they take it all, then take much more... today
no man could ever realize his mistakes
they'll help you one step down
sit back, and watch you drown
going down down down
going down down down down down down

 

Recylced Part E. Recycling

here, there, new wonders gently steal
disguise distorted like moonlit seas
and I see... you've taken all you need
queue up, don't fear
there's mans new fortune here... you hear

song-birds, recycling the same old tune
still you slave onwards, 'til all is used
though I'll see... you'll get the life you need
queue up, don't fear
it's the man who brought you here... you hear

 

Recycled Part F. Flight to Reality

you live in stainless forts
with glass walls around
flight against recources
with your head in the ground
a nations urgent need fulfils anothers greed
going down down down down down down down

fly across the concrete jungle
high in the clouds
looking up to crystal mountains
standing so proud
no need to wonder why, nature slowly dies
going down down down
going down down down down down down down

 

Recycled Part G. Unendless Imagination?

do you see?
do you see?
do you, do you see?
do you see?

do you see the ruins of a life
thats gone by?
built upon by burning towers
lighting the sky

imagine you're the prince of eagles
tears in your eyes
do you see there's not much time
before we go
down down... down down down down

 

Recycled Part H. São Paulo Sunrise

dream, away on the waves
using the money you've saved
our work is done, we'll bathe in the sun
gonna take a trip, let's fly down to Rio
some solitude is all that we need
deserted beach where the air is so free-o

 

Recycled Part I. Costa Del Sol

cares cast aside, see the seas calm and wide
small isle, virgin paradise
warm smiles, floating in the tides

find some desolate place
now it's out of the way
soon, through words passed by mouth
friends are crowding you out

same place, natures changed its face
warm smiles, stretching out for miles
searching in haste, finding refuge and waste

 

Recycled Part J. Marvellous Moses

never thought he'd ever get his metal boat
to fly in the air
Moses did it... with a string at each end
we nearly all died when he tugged and he sighed
saying "you are the fools"
Moses did it... with his hair tied to his shoes

come around here
they say you've got something to hide
I've never met a man like Moses
with so much time

Moses had a thought to put another hill on a mountain
Moses did it... with a spoon in each hand
to our surprise Moses closed up his eyes
saying "show me no rules"
Moses did it... with his arms tied to his side

came the great day Moses tried to drink a lake for a penny
Moses did it... oh man, he looked heavy
he walked around all day, saying
"I've got so much pain, give me a shove"
Moses did it... tourist attraction!

 

Recycled Part K. It's All Over

come tomorrow
I'm going to be the one that
you will follow
your world is so upside down
'cause it's all over now

take the high road
and you'll take the low one
see it all through those passing hours
these moments seem so inside out
it's all over now
it's all over!

see the daytime, you've seen the darkness
I'm torn apart through those many changes
a feeling that you'll understand
it's all over now

see me walking and see me talking
I'll guide you all through those endless ages
your world was so upside down
but it's all over now
it's all over

a feeling that you'll understand
it's all over
