Smashing Pumpkins

"Glass and the Ghost Children"

MACHINA/the machines of God

 

DROP LOW E DOWN TO E-flat, where E-6 is the same pitch as A-0

 

Intro:

wait a few bars, then

 

E|1-0-0-0---0-0-0-1-0-0-5-7-7-7-5

play this a lot until 00:55, then play

 

E|0----3----

a lot until 1:28, then play

 

at "call in all"

E|1----3-3-3-3-3-1-1

four times then play

 

E|0----3----

a lot more

 

and then

E|1----3-3-3-3-3-1-1

a couple more times then

 

E|0------

and then

 

E|1-0-0-0---0-0-0-1-0-0-5-7-7-7-5

quite a lot now

even through "black rooms are calling..."

 

and then

E|1----3-3-3-3-3-1-1

a couple more times then

 

E|0----3----

and then I think while the bass drum is hit twice, mute on E-1...

NOW STOP!!

 

for the man talking to his psychiatrist

if you want to know what he says...

 

So it's all very obtuse

'cause it's like...it's like I started thinking...

that everything I operate on is

is based upon what I believe

God was telling me to do

It had to believe my intuition or whatever

but I always assumed, I always assumed

that the voice I hear is the voice of God

and then I started thinking,

"What if I'm insane?"

so I'm operating on the premise that I'm here

through the voice of God

or what I perceive God to be speaking...

PSYCHIATRIST: Uh-huh.

MAN: ...to me or through me

but maybe I'm completely--

so all my demogoguery

in my life about me thinking that my life has importance...

me thinking that my life has importance--

my, my, my, my thought of it

and the fact that I believe that I'm following my intuition

in and of itself may be completely false

PSYCHIATRIST: Mm-hmm

MAN: ...so then I started freaking out, thinking...

in and of itself may be completely false

and then you have this totally insane creature who believes he's

acting upon a heavenly intuition

but meanwhile he's totally ranting

and I started thinking maybe this is the cause

of all the negativity against me

 

 

IMPORTANT:

****during the time you are listening to the man

drop the E-flat string to D!*****

 

come back in at 6:03

play:

D|0--------0-1----------1-

repeated alot

and after a while play

D|0---------1-2-3-1---------

repeated

until ******AFTER******** he sings

"as she counted the spiders", then play

 

D|6-8-8-8-6-4-5-6-6-6-8-8-1

until the end

 

the 1 on D in the last riff is played with the bass drum
