Cherub Rock
Corgan: Hi. We're sorry that more of you can't be close.
Wretzky: Who- who are all these people in the front, are you like grand prize winners or something? Why is everyone else so far away? It's not very fair, I'm sorry.
Corgan: Because if there's more people then the floor will collapse and everyone will die.
Wretzky: Oh, really?
Iha: We're uh, we're going to have to cancel the show, sorry. Goodnight. Goodnight!
Corgan: I don't wanna be so far away, it sucks.
Iha: Why don't you just bring your mind closer, man? You don't have to move your body, just bring your mind there. Like the kids are rocking and everything. Just get it together. (uninteligible) It's going to be really hard to move those monitors...
Corgan: I feel like I'm in a puppet show way back there.
Iha: It's still rocking back there, man. Don't worry about it.
Corgan: I can't move here, but at least I'll be here.
Iha: Well that's cool too, that's really cool. But the fucked up thing is that, like you're not going to be able to hear those monitors, and like, you know... (uninteligible). Ladies and gentlemen don't worry, we'll play another song, hang on a second. This is a, uh...
Corgan: I want to rock!
I Am One

Corgan (mid song rant): All I ever wanted was everything
All I ever wanted was everything
All I ever wanted was everything and all I got was shit
What you want is what you'll get, and that's nothing
What you want is what you'll get, and that's nothing
Nothing can be taken from me that has not already been taken
And there ain't nothing you can say that ain't been said
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, get, get, get, get nothing
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, get, get, get, get nothing
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme nothing
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme nothing
And what have you got? Nothing
And what do you want? Everything
Ah, cut the shit
Twenty-seven years I have lived with pain in my heart
Twenty-seven years I have lived with a jealous heart
What you want is what you'll get, and that's nothing
What you want is what you'll get, and that's nothing
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme nothing

Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

Corgan: Shit! Thanks for coming to our concert. We're very - we're very sorry that you're so far away, it's not the way that we want it, we hope you understand. We don't take requests. We are not a bar band. We are the Smashing Pumpkins!
Bad Moon Rising (tease)
Corgan: Right now we'd like to do an alternative classic from the movie Sleepless in Seattle. This is called Drown.
Corgan: Thank you very much. This here is a song for all you lovers out there, you know who you ain't. Not that I've ever wanted - not that I've ever met anyone who's in love, but... it's about somebody who I figure what they feel like when they're in love, so if you can understand that you understand this song.
Geek U.S.A.
Corgan: You know, you don't sound very- like you're having a good time.
Iha: These people are uh, jaded. (uninteligible)
Corgan: I'm not - I'm not making excuses, but this is the most impossible place to play. It's really unfortunate that you're all so far away, I can't explain that to you. I'm not --- parallel, but... but I - I hope you're having a good time and we really appreciate it. And uh, we have uh, we have an off day tomorrow so we'll play as long as you want us to play.
Iha: So this will be our last song, it's in our contract, time's up, gotta go to the next city.
(Audience boos)
Corgan: We're just kidding!
Iha: You crazy people of South Carolina. (uninteligible)
Corgan: I think we need to get James to come up closer too.
Iha: (uninteligible)
Corgan: Come on James, don't be afraid.
Iha: Everyone in the motherfuckin' house. Motherfucking Vince --- in the motherfucking house, let's have a big fucking hand for him, I went to fuckin' high school with this guy and we're fuckin' rockin' out here on tour! Well I take that back, would you stop that obscene chanting you fools. Are you people in the college? Stop chanting. I don't know what you're talking about but I don't want to hear about it.
Corgan: Uh... All right, are you ready?
Iha: I'm ready!
Corgan: You have to be really quiet now, sssh. Sssh. Come on, we're all - we're all friends now, we can be quiet. Love two three four.
(James does a bunch of crazy noodling after Siva ends)
[encore break]
Corgan: What do you want to hear? What - what old song do you want to hear? No, we don't know how to play that anymore. I tell you what, in the, in the whole time that the Siamese Dream album's come out we have not played this song one time. So we shall play this for you and I hope you like it.
Corgan: Thanks.
[encore break]
Corgan: Waaah! Hey, you don't deserve no water. Hey, should I give them some water? There, there's some water. I ain't fuckin' Gunga Din... This is a little song James wrote back in uh, 1947.
Iha: This is uh, for uh, I dunno what the --- is.
Corgan: We'd like to play you a new song. We only played this a couple times so be kind.
Iha: We're trying to impress our A&R man who's here tonight.
Corgan: Somewhere out there...
Iha: Somewhere out there.
Corgan: ... is a big executive from Virgin records.
Iha: Everybody, have a hand for Mark Williams of Virgin Records. Don't clap! Don't clap! Don't you understand the irony in my voice?
Corgan: And listen, if somehow you don't like this song we may not get to do another record, so please, please clap even if you don't like the song. Please. So... this is our new song and we hope you like it. It's called... it's called... Bullet with Butterfly Wings.
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
[encore break]
Corgan: Hold on a second. Once again we'd like to thank you all very very much. Life, life is very short and I appreciate moments like this very much. I hope you've had a good time. I hope you felt your five dollars was worth it.
Iha: Ha ha ha ha.
Corgan: (laughs).
Iha: And now it's time for the human beatbox! (beatboxes) Yeah!
Corgan: Okay James.
Iha: I'm sorry.
Corgan: Has anyone ever seen James tap dance?
Iha: We'll I'm sure they want to. I ain't - I ain't doing it unless you get the microphone.
Corgan: Wait, this guy's giving us the finger. You don't like tap dancing?
Iha: Oh, he's a purist ---, he doesn't like the new style. He's not down with the new style, you know we're getting freaky over here, you know gotta understand there's this new thing on the street you know.
Corgan: So we'd like to do one more song for you. If my voice - if my voice can make it.
Iha: But the tape machine's running fine, the batteries are all the way up.
Corgan: I'm sorry, we're tired, we're just trying to get our breath here. We're getting old.
Wretzky: I'd just like to say man, don't throw us your bibles. Don't, oh jesus...
Iha: We at The Smashing Pumpkins do not support this message. This message is message is strictly of D'arcy Wretzky. (uninteligible) And um, you know us, we like to shock people, we don't really actually burn bibles, we just shock people. I don't know what overcame her, I have no idea.
Corgan: And then he came to South Carolina... And he spoke to them.
Iha: Ye shall rock.
Corgan: Let there be rock.
Johnny B. Goode (tease)
Corgan: We're all going to hell, so it's too late now. Wait, leave 'em up, leave 'em up. All right, last song, are you going to give us the last bit of energy you have?
Iha: (uninteligible)
Never Let Me Down
Bargain (tease)
