Transcript:

Know

Daron: Come on whiskey!

Serj: We're System of a Down.  How can you call it war?  Sending millions of funds by the C.I.A. for death squads in Nicaragua.

War?

Serj: If I can control your mind, then I can control your will.  If I can control your will, then I can control your desires.  If I can control your desires, I can control your destiny.  Look at each other.  Look at each other.

Mind

Serj: You ungrateful fucking whore!

Honey

Serj: That was a love song. Country without a race.  Formed from people you disgrace.  White, right, conservative might.  Killers of Kennedys with no fright!  The American Way!

Temper

Serj: This next song is a brand new song.  [Laughs], the fuck was that?  This next song is a brand new song called 'Marmalade'.  Spread it.

Marmalade

Serj: The soil still thirsts for the blood of it's lost children.  The soil still thirsts for the blood of your lost children!

Soil

Serj: For those of you who are still in love, I give you 'Blue'. Hey.

Blue

Suite-Pee

Serj: I see a peephole.  I see an island.  I see a palm tree.  I see the sun hazy, lazy, baked.  This song's about fucking getting high.

Peephole

Serj: This is gonna be our last song. It's called 'Darts'.  We're playing July, 30 at the Viper Room.  We're not playing the Opium Den,there is a misprint in the paper.  So if you see the Opium Den, we're not playing there.  I want to thank the other bands that are playing with us.  And we've got Kingpin coming up next so stick around.  We've got a booth back there: mailing lists, t-shirts, tapes, you fucking name it we got it.

Darts

Daron: Thank you very much.

Serj: Thank you very much for coming out.  We're System of a Down.

?????: You guys want to hear one more?  Make some noise.  Make some fucking noise!

Daron: I wanna thank everybody here who-that's supported us in the past couple years.  We love you all.  You guys are fucking the bomb.  We appreciate you all.  You guys rip, all of you.

Serj: Hey, we totally forgot to play 'Sugar' man.  The Kombucha Mushroom People.  Huh.  Oh, me.

Daron: I-E-O.

Serj: Uh

Daron: Awh. Awh-Awh-Awh-Awh-Awh.

Serj. Huh, heh.

Daron: Awh-Awh-Awh-Awh-Awh.  Sugar!
