BC: So I wanna say hi to everybody way up there, it's hard to see you but I know you're up there.
Iha: Hi. Hi.
BC: Hello! Hello!
BC: Care to say something witty?
Iha: Um...boy, what a Fourth of July that was. Did everybody enjoy their Fourth of July? I of course sided with the British again this year. I say we revert back to the old country and become a colonial superpower, come on. Come back, come back.
BC: Most people think this next song is about my childhood, but it's actually “lay down your arms, let's go back to the old country.”
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans / Beautiful / Rocket
Iha: Yo yo yo, thanks, thanks.
Iha: Alright. That was fun. Did you all dance a little bit? Heh heh. Maybe not, maybe...maybe you were thinking of...I don't know, the Liberty Bell and all the things it has brought Philadelphia.
(Iha: Yeah, I know that dope ass riff you’re playing. Fuck yeah, here we are in the motherfuckin’ birthplace of the nation, you know what I’m talking about? We’re talkin’ about Washington, Adams, Jefferson, kickin’ that dope ass beat, come on Philadelphia, up on your motherfuckin’ feet. Come on! I can’t fuckin’ hear you! Aw! Damn, this shit’s hot. So hot I’ve gotta get a pot that I’m gonna mix it all in, we’re talkin’ about the birthplace, the cosmopolitan nation, every race, creed and color mixed in, America. Come on! I know it’s the day after Fourth of July but we don’t forget about that shit! Come on!! Fuckin’ jump around like you just don’t motherfuckin’ mother independence care. We’re not talkin’ no Independence Day, we’re talkin’ about our day today, come on. Alright, alright, just settle the fuck down.)
Iha: Alright, thanks, thanks again.
BC: Thank you very much. Ethan? (crowd cheers for lights being turned on) Thank you. Thank you so much. This is one of our older songs, I don't know if you know it. We send it out to you if you're confused like we are.
Iha: Of course. Of course a horse.
BC: I know you're confused 'cause I sure am.
Iha: I haven't got a clue.
BC: Are you confused, Johnny? Cool. We're all confused, so join in the confusion.
Iha: Hey! We're back, yes, thank you. We're back and we're ready to rock. How about that? Will you take that? We're back and we're ready to rock. Can I hear you say that, “we're back and we're ready to rock.” (Billy starts intro feedback for Bodies) I can’t hear you! I'm just kidding, just kidding, alright.
> Silverfuck / Space Jam / Eye / Dose
BC: Thank you. God bless you, goodnight.
