Iha: Good evening, jaded Los Angeles.
BC: Thanks, hi. Don't, uh, kill each other, please. Have fun, love, enjoy.
Iha: Love your brothers, man. Love your friends. Be groovy, man. This is, uh....
> I Am One
(BC midsong: All I ever wanted was everything. All I ever wanted was everything. Just so don't wish for something ‘cause you might get it. And don't wish for nothing ‘cause you just might get it and don't ask a question if you don’t want an answer and I am negative, of this I am positive. Yeah, can you hear me out there? Are you alive? Do you feel? Do you wish? And nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken. Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken and there's nothing you can say about me that hasn't already been said. Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken, nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken and nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken! Yeah. So what you want is what you'll get: nothing. And what you want is what you'll get: nothing! Nothing. And there's in this world left for me. And there's certainly nothing in this world that I want more than everything. And there’s nothing. Nothing! Nothing! Nothing. Nothing! Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!)
BC: Well, to those of you who are listening, thank you; to those of you who choose to talk, go fuck yourselves. I don't know why you come to a show to talk, doesn't make any sense to me.
Iha: Jaded Los Angeles, we thank you, we thank you.
BC: Alright, can I ask you -– can I ask you for a favor? Is that too much, is -– can I ask you for a favor? Alright, it's my wife Chris's birthday and I wanna sing Happy Birthday. I'm sure she won't come out but she can hear you.
Happy Birthday (Billy and D’arcy sing w/guitar flourishes)
Iha: Let me see a sea of hands out there, people, let me see a sea of hands! (Billy starts Drown) Alright!
Silverfuck / Over the Rainbow
(BC as intro ends and song proper begins: Blast off.)
(BC after “bang bang you’re dead” verse: (singing) Some people never learn, some people never learn, some people never learn to shut their fuckin' mouths, some people never learn, some people never learn, some people never learn to shut their fuckin' mouths, yeah.)
(BC over big ending: I got motherfuckin' rock power! I got fuckin' rock power!)
