SAVIOUR MACHINE from The Man Who Sold The World 


INTRO:  Am  Bb  Am  G...repeat for fade in


Am                       F
President Joe once had a dream
                   E
The world held his hand gave their pledge 
                    Am                     Em
So he told them his scheme for a Saviour Machine
Am                                        F
They called it The Prayer, its answer was law
                  E
Its logic stopped war, gave them food
          Am                         E
How they adored till it cried in its boredom


G              F#m         Am         Bb
Please don't believe in me please disagree with me
G           F#m     Am                 Bb       C
Life is too easy, a plague seems quite feasible now
Bb         C  Bb              Am7  D  Am7  D  Am7  D
Or maybe a war I may kill you all


1st SOLO:  Am7  F  Ab  Bb
           Am  F  Am  F  Ab  Bb


Am           G                  F
Don't let me stay, don't let me stay
              G                Am
My logic says burn so send me away
                   Bb                        F
Your minds are too green, I despise all I've seen
                     G                    Am7  D
You can't stake your lives on a Saviour Machine


2nd SOLO:  Am7  D...(11 times)


G          F#m        Am             Bb
I need you flying and I'll show that dying
   G        F#m         Am       Bb         C
Is living beyond reason sacred dimension of time
Bb               C   Bb                 Am7  D  Am7  D  Am7  D
I perceive every sign I can steal every mind


1st SOLO


Am           G                  F
Don't let me stay, don't let me stay
              G                Am
My logic says burn so send me away
                   Bb                        F
Your minds are too green, I despise all I've seen
                     G                    Am7  D
You can't stake your lives on a Saviour Machine

OUTRO SOLO: Starts at about 3:47. There are two guitars playing fairly similar 
things but it does get a bit manic as it goes on. I shall try and outlin some of 
the ideas for the solo but this is certainly not a note for note transcription:
