saviour computer
President Joe once had a dream
The world held his hand, gave their pledge
So he told them his scheme for a Saviour Machine

They called it the Prayer, its answer was law
Its logic stopped war, gave them food
suicidal computer
Don't let me stay, don't let me stay
My logic says burn so send me away
