Pink Elephants on Parade Intro
(feedback intro to Rocket begins)
Iha: Thank you very much, great to be back in Kansas City. Oh my gosh!
> Tristessa
BC: Thank you. (Window Paine intro begins) In case you don’t know, we're from Mars. To, to the wid -– Midwest.
Window Paine
> Bury Me
Iha: Hey, thanks. We'd like to uh, start our next performance art concept, a trilogy of songs we've written especially for the [2 unintelligible words] stage. This next one begins in D minor, for any of you music buffs. (Siva intro begins) And here it is.
Kill Your Parents
> Siva
blues jam
(Iha begins blues jam)
Iha: Lazy. Lazy. I got these....
BC: No way, man! See what I fuckin’ get for handing over water, somebody throws it back at me, fuck you all! Hope you fuckin’ drown in your own lack of juices. ... Oh, now you're gonna throw shit at me ‘cause I said that, fuck you.
Iha: (laughs)
(rest of band joins in with jam)
Iha: Lazy. Lazy. Lazy. Lazy. Lazy. Bye to the [unintelligible word]. Lookin’ at [unintelligible word], we’re gonna spin buh-buh-balloon. [unintelligible], put her in this. (jam ends)
I Am One
BC: This is the portion of the show where we tell you to take drugs and kill your parents. Quit school now, there's no future, the world's gonna end in a couple years anyway. I mean, give up, you know. Probably shouldn't even be here, you should probably be at home doing whippets or something. So this song is written for you, you apathetic, frustrated youth, you.
