How Things Are Supposed to Be
> Cast a Stone
Don’t Let Me Down
Jesus, I / I’m Waiting for the Man
(BC over Sweeney intro guitar: I’m feeling, uh, sexy, let’s dim the lights, Matt, first. As I - I want to make love to you during this song and I’d like to dim the lights. As Jesus ordained.
Sweeney: Let’s do it.)
The Shining Path
Sweeney: I got this weird, like, little, just, tuft of hair caught in my guitar [unintelligible word].
What Have They Done to Me
Improv Jam
(BC: Get up on that horse and ride. Get up on that horse and ride. Straight out to the golden night. Gotta get up on that horse and ride.)
BC: Thank you for [unintelligible word].
Sweeney: I think it would be so great if we came out like that and just the straight boogie set. “Hi!” Alright, sweet.
My Life and Times (abandoned before lyrics - Billy starts song in wrong key)
> My Life and Times
BC: God bless, thank you.
[encore break]
Of a Broken Heart
What the World Needs Now Is Love
(BC near end: Keep going.
Sweeney: I wanna stay in the module eight.
BC: Same thing? Know what would be great? It would be great if you could do it for the show. Later, when we do the show? It’ll be great when you...get that module [unintelligible word].
Sweeney: Really [unintelligible word].
BC: Thank you, bye, heh heh. (song ends))
[encore break]
Sweeney: You know what this reminds me of? This re - this reminds me of that pirate movie. You - you know the one? You didn’t see...? That pirate movie. The one that’s rated aaaarr.
BC: That’s - wait wait - that’s not dirty, I wanted to hear a dirty joke. These kids are all Mormons, they wanna hear a dirty joke. Like to give a special shout out to Manny.
Sweeney: Yesss!
BC: Our friend Manny.
Sweeney: Manny [unintelligible last name].
BC: A real man. And uh, a special thank you to so many people who’ve come from so far to see us. We got Israel in the house, we got Italy in the house, we got Japan in the house.
Sweeney: We have New York in the house.
BC: New York’s not a country, Matt.
Sweeney: Yeah, that is.
Spilled Milk
(BC towards end: We are Zwan!! Zwan! Zwan! Zwan. It rhymes with bwan, don’t forget. Zwan. Zwan. Zwan. [2 unintelligible words] Zwan.)
BC: God bless you, we love you, thank you.
