Automatic, The - Recover Lyrics

Can't fight!
There's no escaping the facts
I tried to help but I failed
To solve the problems so much
Of good intentions

I want my wasted hours back
And I want my head to clear
And I have this bad taste in my mouth
From late nights and bad films

Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!
Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!

I'm drip fed these pictures
And now my words abandon me
The fraction that's still me
Said this lives not all it could be

Now did you catch what I said?
Did you catch what I said?
One by one my ideas fade
And there's nothing left to say

Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!
Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!
Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!
Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!

Can't fight, decide a future
Let's dance, you're so robotic
Times up, refill the meter
This disappointment's so electric

Can't fight, decide a future
Let's dance, you're so robotic
Times up, refill the meter
This disappointment's so electric

Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!
Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!
Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!
Get up! Recover!
'Cause you'll never dance again!

Automatic, The Recover Comments
  1. SiddoNotts

    In case you're wondering, the book she's reading at the beginning is called "Psychotic Reactions & Carburetor Dung." It's a collection of live music/album reviews from the maverick journalist Lester Bangs.

  2. Some Guy

    Do any of yall mothafuckas know what that sound effect at the beginning is caled

  3. Adrian Hiisss The Cat

    I remember there is a wrestling music video of this when I first watched from TV.


    Adrian Hiisss The Cat They definitely re-recorded the entire song, the wrestling video sounds so much more polished. You can hear the differences between the two songs when you listen to them back to back. Great music 👍🏾.

  4. Khainur Ikhram

    IT'S NOT A GOOD IDEA TO GO TO BIEBERS VIDEOS & CLICK THE DISLIKE BUTTON cause every time we go to his video HE GETS PAYED a few cents cause his vid sponsred

    Instead we pick songs like this get as many people as we can to watch so BY THE 1st OF MARCH ON BIEBERS BIRTHDAY ALL ROCK VIDEOS WILL BE MOST VIEWED ON YOUTUBES CHARTS this will get the younger audience to listen to GOOD MUSIC & might have GOOD ROCK BANDS FORM AGAIN have along way to go his video has 390 mill.

  60. 27xoxo09

    oh my said that the reason you dislike Germans is because they have bad manners or no courtesy yeah? Have you EVER went back and looked at all of your immature insults towards each other and think that you are just like them? and BTW...thats just stereotyping. Its not like all the germans in the world went all out just to get you.

  61. joefx69

    1. a person who is notably stupid or lacking in good judgment.

    2. Psychology. a person of borderline intelligence in a former classification of mental retardation, having an intelligence quotient of 50 to 69."

    Id say both of that applies to you.
    You didnt think people would react to that stupid "opinion"? Thats even more stupid!
    Bye Moron

  62. Orbit91

    How was I wasting my time, by typing one word, while you type a sentence?


  63. joefx69

    You hate ALL germans? Christ, even German Nazis didnt hate all germans! You must be worse than Hitler. Or an idiot.

  64. Orbit91


  65. Orbit91

    That didn't make any sense, fail.

  66. randominsanepeople

    Yeah most people I know will agree with you.

  67. Orbit91

    Why don't you go back to the the Middle age, with the rest of the racists.

  68. randominsanepeople

    lol awesome. just wanted to say your totally right germans suck

  69. steelorigin

    it does say germany

  70. badbestfriend

    and why prey tell is that?

  71. bigmcq77

    DON'T WE ALL!!

  72. FgFoto

    we want the new PWNAGE TOOL!!!!!!!! XD

  73. Wallij

  76. Pickles

    IT SAYS:


  77. Nicolapatis

    It looks like it but it actually says Bermany if u look in 1:20 even tho Germany is pretty cool.
    Great song Great Band

  78. Name?

    those mouths remind me of shoot da whoop

  79. radierstift

    OK. I see. So no real statement behind him wearing it, but who cares.

  80. radierstift

    "Dermany"... LOL

    I triple-checked. That's definitely "Germany". Not that it matters, really. I'd just like to know how it fits into context. But I feel quite honoured, being German and all.

  81. radierstift

    Excuse me? There's absolutely nothing wrong with loving Germany! Being German myself I just loved the fact that he, being from Wales, wears a shirt like that. I want one of those for myself.

    You misunderstood.

  82. radierstift

    Is that "I love Germany" on his shirt?

    Great song, great band!

  83. darksomehandsome


  84. darksomehandsome

    that's the thing that concerns me the most...once bands become commercialized they change their whole sound just to appeal to the mainstream crowd and completely forget about their original fan's all about the overjustification effect where bands no longer do it for the joy of making music for their fans, they start doing it for the joy of making money...i gladly support bands that do their own thing and don't conform to the standards of the those are brave people.

  85. slomo8888

    sehr cooles tshirt am anfang :)

  86. coffeover wwater

    Sorry, I meant to say hated him.

  87. coffeover wwater

    Alex Pennie, the keyboardist/screamer. I've heard that he was added in by the record company and the rest of the band hated hi. lol No wonder he left.

  88. Matthew Harris

    Why did he leave?


    ...shit much

  90. Bill Ballschack

  94. Eemeer

    They had to go by the automatic automatic in america cos ders another band called the automatic and they didn't want to be sued by them!!

  95. coderedblack

    yeah, chill out robinn1, its not like the band chose on purpose i know, lets have a completely different name in the US--there had to have been a good reason for doing that. yeah, and prejudiced much? jeez...

  96. Melissa Miramontes
