Nektar... Recycled... Song of the Moment











Song of the Moment


I was only going to post the main portion of the song but... once I began listening I couldn't stop. And so the "song" of the moment has now become the "album" of the moment...
for the moment anyways... LoL


If you've never heard of them or have never listened to their music... go into it with an open mind. Forget about the fact that it was released back in 1970-fucking-5. Who gives a fuck! Good music knows no time barriers my friend.


There are 3 links that will play the album in sequence. There was a single full album link of a remastered version, but in my opinion that version lost a lot of it's glory.


If you're into Internet radio...
Then you have to download Spotify!
It's free, but you get commercials after
about 3 or 4 songs. Not bad, but in
my opinion still sucks!
So I pay $5 and change per month and
get NO commercials at all.


This service is way better than Pandora
or any other Internet radio because
you choose exactly what you want
to hear. Full albums, individual songs,
whatever! And you won't believe how
clear it sounds. I've heard lyrics and notes
to songs I've been listening to for
over 20, 30 years that I've never heard,
or understood before. Too cool!


You can listen to this album and their entire
catalog here instead of using the Youtube
links. You won't be disappointed!
I promise!
And yes, the check is in the mail.
And yes, I love you.
And yes, I respect you.
And of course yes,
I won't cum in your mouth!


Enjoy!

Recycled (1975)
Nektar
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 web 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


calm 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
but I'll see... you 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
fight against resources
with your head in the ground
a nations urgent need fulfills another's greed
going down down down down down down down


fly 'cross 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
that's 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
going down... oh yeah
going 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 hear 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
