Bury Me
> Rocket
BC: Hi. Tack...whatever that means.
Guy in crowd: Silverfuck!
(intro to Quiet starts)
BC: There will be no song requests this evening.
BC: I have diseases, I don't want to touch you.
Guys in crowd: [unintelligible]!
Iha: What?
BC: They want our diseases.
Iha: You cannot have it! You may not, you will not have them.
BC: Wasn't that an AC/DC album title? If You Want Our Disease, You Got It?
Iha: Yeah, that's a live one.
BC: Sorry it's so hot. Sorry my throat's fucked up. That’s alright. That’s what happens when you get old. (crowd cheers) You're cheering getting old?
unknown (tease)
BC: Hey, I'm not your waterboy. It's not my fault you're thirsty. Plus you don't want to catch what I have. What? Heh heh, what?
I Am One
BC: Whoo, whoo! Woo-ooh! That's what we do in America, we just stand around and go whoo, whoooo! Whoo!
Crowd: Smashing Pumpkins! Smashing Pumpkins!
Iha: (joins in the chant in gibberish)
BC: (laughing) Don’t even bother.
Iha: Alice in Chains!
BC: (Carl Spackler impression) This is a little song that James is featured on.
Iha: (Carl Spackler impression) Hey, yeah, that's right, my name is Eric Clapton during our Unplugged tour.
BC: I thank you! Are we boring you? I realize we have so many long songs. They're all so emotional and overwrought and...well, we're sad people.
Iha: Sad but bombastic.
BC: So what do you wanna hear? (crowd yells requests) No one yelled the song I wanna play.
Geek U.S.A.
BC: Why are you so quiet? (crowd cheers) Yeah, this is a rock concert. Whoo.
BC: Oh, we're not done, we're just in space.
Iha: You are a curious crowd, you are quiet. Have the police broken your at Christiania?
BC: Yeah, what's with the police, man?
Iha: Heh heh heh.
Fuck Tha Police (tease)
BC: Fuck tha police, coming straight from the underground.
Iha: Damn, what a fucked up puss of shit, kickin’ that dope ass rhyme, hoin’ ass shit.
BC: No, young brother got it bad 'cause I'm brown.
Iha: Oh, yeah. Damn! Alright, (beatboxes), the human beatbox, (beatboxes). Alright, let's start another song and uh, this is a good one.
BC: Yeah, it is a pretty good song.
Iha: Yow!
Cherub Rock
[encore break]
BC: Hi. (glum) Hi. How are you? (normal) So I didn't get to see much of Copenhagen today. But what I did see, somebody tried to sell me some hash and uh, somebody tried to sell me some beads and then somebody else tried to sell me some bootleg tapes. It was great. I love it, I love your country. And I heard your football team won. (crowd cheers) Congratulations.
Iha: Hey, but he's no Mike Ditka. That’s a...I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
BC: That’s a Chicago joke, we're very sorry.
Iha: I take that back, I’m sorry.
BC: Thank you for coming to the show. Some people said we should've played a bigger place but the last time we were here, only a hundred people came to see us play, so.... Heh, no, I know. Who was at our show last -- like I don't know, a year ago, a year and a...? (a few cheers) Hi, nice to see you again. I know we were way better back then but I'm sorry, you know? So, again, thank you and, stumble home safely.
