JL: "Thanks a lot. I guess those of you who've seen our show will recognize that there are some songs that we really know how to play, and some songs that we are... concentrating very hard to play." JF: "But you know, I think there's something both exciting and - and profoundly frozen and disappointing about doing the record in order. You know, it's like this weird, you know, cryogenic... I feel like Walt Disney going on like 'I'm alive again!' Um." JL: "That's right." JF: "Or AC/DC doing that Back in Black tour. One or the other. So we're gonna get to - we're gonna do Back in Black for the second half of the show. Perhaps... does it open with Hell's Bells? We had to get the bell out of the warehouse. You guys ready for this one?"

1, 2, 3, 4!

Particle Man, Particle Man Doing the things a particle can What's he like? It's not important Particle Man

Is he a dot, or is he a speck? When he's underwater does he get wet? Or does the water get him instead? Nobody knows, Particle Man

Triangle Man, Triangle Man Triangle Man hates Particle Man They have a fight, Triangle wins Triangle Man

Universe Man, Universe Man Size of the entire universe man Usually kind to smaller man Universe Man

He's got a watch with a minute hand Millennium hand and an eon hand And when they meet it's a happy land Excellent man, Universe Man

Person Man, Person Man Hit on the head with a frying pan Lives his life in a garbage can Person Man

Is he depressed or is he a mess? Does he feel totally worthless? Who came up with Person Man? Degraded man, Person Man

Triangle Man, Triangle Man Triangle Man hates Person Man They have a fight, Triangle wins Triangle Man


JF: "Triangle wins!"
