"Pipeline" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
Get out the crane
Construction time again
What is it this time?
We're laying a pipeline

Let the beads of sweat flow
Until the ends have met through
Could take a long time
Working on the pipeline

Taking from the greedy
Giving to the needy

On this golden day
Work's been sent our way
That could last a lifetime
Working on the pipeline

From the heart of our land
To the mouth of the man
Must reach him sometime
We're laying a pipeline

Taking from the greedy
Giving to the needy

    General CommentThis song is penultimate example of Depeche Mode's experimentation with sampling everyday sounds and constructing them into a viable tune. Some of the sounds heard are kicking a vacuum cleaner (the loud thud that repeats throughout), dragging a piece of metal across a rail, and dropping a ping-pong ball. The group continued to use samples to create their music but in future releases, the sounds would be manipulated and massaged such that the original source is unrecognizable.
