Iha: I see one evil hand, I see two evil hands
Corgan: Welcome to the rock show
Corgan: Thank you
I Am One

Corgan (mid song rant):
All I ever wanted was everything and all I got was shit
All I ever wanted was everything and all I got was shit
What is you is what you'll get and that's nothing
What is you is what you'll get and that's nothing
Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken
Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken
Behind every flapping jaw is an idle mouth
Behind every flapping jaw is a closed eye
And inside every heart that is a devil named Jack Shit
And of my negative attitude, I am postiive
Oh gimme a little more of nothing
Give me something to about nothing
C'mon, c'mon, gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme nothing
Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme nothing
What you got? What you fuckin' got? Nothing!
What do you fuckin' have? Nothing!
Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme nothing
Huh? Give me a little more something of that nothing
Gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme nothing
Nothing, nothing, nothing, theres nothing, theres nothing, theres nothing!

Corgan: Thank for being here. Hope you're in a good mood, we are... for a change. But you must know, the Smashing Pumpkins do not take requests. We are not a jukebox. And we kinda have a rule: the more you yell for something, the less likely we are to play it... What do you want me to say?
Iha: We will do 'Freebird' though

Corgan: Hi
Iha: And now we will rcok you
Geek U.S.A.
[various shouts for Freebird]
Iha: Hey we just played 'Freebird', didn't you recognise it?
Corgan: Wanna hear 'Freebird'? OK, this is what you do, you go home, ok, and you stick your head up your ass and if you stick it up far enough, you'll hear 'Freebird' I promise you... thank you very much

Corgan (mid song):
So what do you want? What's the matter, the rock show's not enough for you?
You're not part of the bored generation are you?
Yeah, you know the bored generation, b-o-r-e-d?
That's the generation I'm from
(to audience member) What? what? c'mon be a man...
Just keep playing?... Just keep rockin', dude
[sings the 'All this pain smothers me' part]
Louder? We cant go any louder I don't know what you want
According to these gentlemen, they would like D'arcy
That's all they want, D'arcy. I don't what that means
Do you want her to just jump in the audience for you, is that what you want?
That's sane gesture
[some calls for Corgan to jump in instead]
I'm the last thing you want
You dont get it, do you? You just don't get it
See, I gotta push you like this to get you to do anything
It's not about music, it's not abour rock 'n' roll, it's even about us
You're all fuckin' jaded, get it?
Oh what, I don't know? I don't feel it? I don't see it? I don't fuckin' know? I do know
Hey sorry, sorry to offend you y'know
See now you're angry, now you're fuckin' angry
Now I get some emotion from you.. hey fuckers
Do I have to make you more angry to enjoy the show, is that what you want?
Hey dude, if I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about, what are you doing standing down there and what am I doing standing up here?

Cherub Rock

Corgan: Thank you
[encore break]
Corgan mumbles Bye June off mic
Wretzky: You're embarrassing me
Corgan: Hey you're getting embarrassed, I don't know....
(To audience member) You want my what? Fuck my fuck? My fuck is empty but I offer it to you still... I'm glad we'll share the same diseases
Iha: Do you still that terrible chafing thing around your [unintelligible] God, sorry, sorry, I didn't mean it
[encore break; tape cuts in]
Corgan:... bad pigs, I'm sorry, please forgive me.. please forgive me, please forgive me...
Iha: You must repent... you are so bad...
Corgan (laughing): Please forgive me... sorry about that... only a sinner could repent so hard
Iha: As Rob Halford would say {in imitation voice) 'sinner, sinner, sinner'!
Corgan: Whiskey woman, don't you know you are driving me insane
Iha: That is from the book of the priest
Corgan: D'arcy Wretzky, are you ready?
Bury Me
[song plays through band's PA]
Iha: Damn, that dope jam again!
Corgan: Tommy turn it up so these people can hear it
unknown instrumental

C'mon let's go to the ride
C'mon let's go to the ride
C'mon let's go take a ride
C'mon let's go take a ride, yeah
C'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon let's go for a ride
Oh baby, you're my pretty woman
Take a chance on romance
Iha: And he walked on down the hall...

Corgan: Here's another song about nearly nothing

Corgan (mid song): What's the matter, nobody feel the need to get on top of people's heads anymore?
Have you lost your nerve?
C'mon, time to bodysurf
You've seen it on MTV, c'mon, let's recreate it here
I mean shit, I saw it in a Pearl Jam video, I guess I'm supposed to do it
[someone starts bodysurfing]
Corgan: There you go! Yes, everyone admires you now
Television created it but people purpetrated it
Just let 'em fall on their heads, they have to have somebody holding them up, right? Just let 'em fall!
Why should your entertainment value be cribbed upon because somebody wants to be on top of ur head?
I appreciate you being here and I want you to have a good time and not have people kick you in the head
Anyway enough speeches for one night
Well all I have left is love and [unintelligible]
Over the Rainbow (tease)
[audience shouts 'I' on the final line]
Corgan: No, wrong answer

Jackboot (tease)
Corgan: Hey just remember it's all a big lie, rock is dead
