I Am One
(BC midsong: All I ever wanted was everything. All I ever wanted was everything. All I ever wanted was everything and all I got was shit! Nothing can be taken from me that has not already been taken. Nothing can be taken from me that has not already been taken. What you want is what you’ll get and that’s nothing! What you want is what you’ll get and that’s nothing. Hooooo-yeah! Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme nothing. Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme some more of that nothing. In my heart there are zeroes, nothing left for zeroes, there are no more heroes, it’s all a bunch of zeroes. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. 27 years. 27 years. Nothing. Nothing. Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme some more of that nothing. What have you got?! Nothing! What do you need?: everything! Where have you been, where are you going, hey man, where are you gonna do it, huh?! Nothing. What’s left for us? Nothing! A dirty planet, a dirty mind: nothing! Let ‘em blame it on us. Are you here or are you just a participant? ‘Cause it ain’t about rock and roll, it ain’t about dying, it’s about you! You, you, you, you, me, you, me and you. They can’t even fake Woodstock anymore, man. Peace and love, brother, for a hundred and thirty-five bucks. There are no more heroes! And if you stand up for what you believe, then what are you then? You are nothing! I don’t believe in god, I don’t believe in America, but I believe in pain! ‘Cause I’m mad! Nothing! Nothing!!!)
BC: Thank you all for being here, we really appreciate it.
Iha: Thank you.
BC: I realize we don't talk too much, we don't communicate too much, but we're just trying to play and uh...hope you're having a good time. I’m not very good at that “Hey, how're you doin’?” part but uh....
Iha: But we dance well.
BC: We are good tango-ers.
Iha: And now we will rock.
BC: And now we will rock you.
(BC alt last line: We fuckin’ love the U.S.A.!)
> Cherub Rock
BC: God bless you, thank you.
Iha: Merci! We thank you very much, every time we’ve come to Canada it always sucks, but this has been our best show yet, we’d like to thank everyone here.
BC: But wait! Wait, that’s not true, the last time we were here was really good too, so you can't say that.
Iha: Oh, well, you know, whatever.
BC: Heh heh.
Iha: Whatever. It's a feel good kind of festival thing to say, if anything it’s true. It is true about you.
BC: So then, we really appreciate those of you who stayed the entire day. It's pretty fuckin' cool, we really, super really absolutely appreciate it, I hope you understand that. And um...please be careful going home, don't kill each other.
Iha: “Got it, got it!”
BC: If you fuck each other, you know, be careful and all that kind of stuff.
