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 hasn't already been taken
Nothing can be taken from me that has not already been taken
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, 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
Gimme gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme nothing
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme nothing
What have you got? Nothing
Where are you going? Nowhere
What can you say that hasn't already been said?
What can you do that hasn't already been done?
What is your name, what is your color, what do you feel? Nothing
Nothing, nothing, nothing
Loneliness is emptiness
Emptiness is cleanliness
Cleanliness is godliness
Godliness is nothingness
Nothing
Nothing
What do you believe in?
Straight from the heart, what do you believe in?
I don't believe in God
I don't beleive in America
I don't believe in rock and roll
I believe in me, I believe in me, I believe in me, I believe in me, I believe in me
Me, me, M-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme nothing
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme nothing
There is no safety in numbers
There is no safety anywhere
There is only nothing
There are no more heroes
There is only zero
There is no Generation X
There is no Generation Y
Life ain't livin'
Seein' ain't knowin'
Talkin' ain't knowin' shit
Heart and soul
Heart and soul
Heart and soul
Heart and soul
So at the end of the day, at the end of the day
Welcome to the end of the day
What have we got?
Nothing
Nothing but a name and a number
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing

Corgan: Welcome to the apocalypse!
Rocket
Corgan: Thank you...we're so glad it's a beautiful night tonight, I'm so glad you're here with us.
Rhinoceros
Quiet
Cherub Rock

Corgan: Thank you. We are the Smashing Pumpkins. We always have been and always will be the Smashing Pumpkins. Some people like that and other people dont, but that's ok too.
Iha: So R.E.O. Speedwagon's ok too.
Soma
Geek U.S.A.
The Sign (tease)
Corgan: Hi my name is Jerry and we're The Rocktones. We'd like to do a song about growing up in New Jersey.
Disarm
Today

Corgan: Thank you very much for staying to watch us play. I hope everyone has had a good time today...
Iha: Jaded New York, come on.
Corgan: Ah, lay off New York James.
Iha: Come on New York...jaded New York.
Corgan: I dont't--Now wait a second, I usually don't agree with James but last night the people here were pretty jaded, you people aren't so jaded so...thank you very much. You're fine, you're fine, there's nothing wrong with you, it's all in my head...but anyway, we hope you've enjoyed the bands, we're very honored to be on this bill with everyone...and I hope that maybe, I hope that maybe someday there'll be more than just Lollapalooza, there'll be more of these kinds of things for us to go see, be a part of. 'Cause music's pretty cool, and I'm glad to be a part of it. Thank you.
Silverfuck
(encore break)
Iha: Thank you.
Corgan: You sure you want us to play more songs? You know we've been on tour for fourteen months and uh, we've forced a lot of people to listen to a lot of shit man, if you know what I mean. That's why I ask. Alright who wants to catch a pass? I coulda been a quarterback. Can you--this is so--aw screw ya Bob. So thank you once again for your support. We realize that we're always not the best band, but we do try to be and...I hope you understand. I know that sounds really conceited but thats not the way I really meant it, I just...Sometimes when you reach for the stars you end up in the fuckin' shit, you know what I mean. THAT'S RIGHT!
Iha: That's right.
Corgan: So tonight we're gonna rock you tonight.
Iha: Let's see some evil hands, evil hands out there, evil hands...you know Ronnie James Dio...
Corgan: You sure you're into this? Really, are you sure? You're positive, you're absolutely positive...ok, all together now.
Hummer
Corgan: Bless your hearts, thanks. We'd like to do one more song for you, it's one of our favorite songs, and uh, it's gonna come out soon in America, it's never really come out except on import, its called Starla...actually I, I met the girl that I wr--I didn't write this song about a girl but I met a girl named Starla, but I met a girl named Starla and I met her about a month ago and I said uh, hey I wrote a song about you, with your name, and she said "oh, Darla?" and I went no, Starla...I know it's not very funny but I thought you might wanna know the genesis behind the song...actually this song's about eating carrots, I hope you understand that...that's midwestern humour for those of you that don't know...please tell your parents we said hello...we do love parents...my parents died in a car crash, sorry...I can't tell them hello, just kidding.
Iha: And now we'll start the song.
Corgan: Listen, if you're gonna throw shit at us we're not gonna play, so you might as well stop that part of it. Starla
Sweet Sweet

Corgan: Thanks, bye. Oh yeah, one more thing. When I--when I started singing this I heard someone yell "oh, it's another one of them songs about love."...well, it is, and I'm gonna keep singin' em forever too.
