Introduction
--------------------------------------------------------------
1.0.1 Intent of this document

This document is intended to aid people who are seeking mp3s, bootlegs and information on the songs Weezer played live over the summer of 2000.  It will list the songs, the dates, whether they have been taped and whether or not mp3s of the song have been circulated. Songs will only be listed as being taped if someone can confirm that they have a recording with the song on it.  However, the vast majority of these shows have been taped by somebody, so it's a pretty safe bet that recordings of all of these songs exist somewhere.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.0 Song List
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the listing of all known Weezer songs played on the 2000 summer tour.  As we now know, most of these songs (with the obvious exception of 'hash pipe') will probably never be recorded in the studio.  This makes the information of this document even more valuable, seeing that these recordings will probably be the only way to hear them.  First, is a simple listing of the song titles, and afterward there is a section with details on when and where the songs were played and whether or not they have been recorded.  Note that this list does not include the songs played at the Rivers Cuomo solo shows from 1998, only songs played in the year 2000.

----------------------------------------------
2.0.1 Songs that were played live
----------------------------------------------

1. Dope Nose
2. Ev'ry Nite
3. Hash Pipe
4. Mad Kow
5. Modern Dukes
6. My Brain (Is Workin' Overtime)
7. O-Girl
8. On the Edge
9. Peace and Quiet
10. Preacher's Son
11. Slob
12. Superstar
13. Too Late To Try
14. Your Sister (a.k.a.The Sister Song)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.0.2 Songs that have not been played live/Soundcheck Demos
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Note: These are songs whose titles have been learned from Karl or some other source, but have not been confirmed as having been played on any show's set list. These songs may have been played during sound checks, and have most certainly at least been rehearsed by the band at some point.

1. Disappointments
2. My Best Friends
3. Torture
4. Yer Fun To Play With

Apparently, some of the soundcheck demos done by the band in july and september of 2000 have leaked.  The above listed songs may eventually surface at some point, but then again, maybe not.  So far, a demo version of "too late to try" and "on the edge" have surfaced...with another demoed song rumored to surface soon.  I have no idea which song is from what demo, although it should be noted that they sound quite different as far as mixing and quality goes.  For more information on the soundcheck demos done in 2000, check out karl's recording history pages.  If you know Anything about the Soundcheck demos, let me know, even if its rumor, or just a bit of information, here.
 

----------------------------------
3.1 Song Details
---------------------------------

This is the meat of the document. Details are separated into three sections: Played, Recordings, MP3s. Played: Lists cities and dates that the song has been confirmed to having been played. Dates surrounded by question marks (?-XXX-?) are dates where it is unsure whether the song was played. Question marks in place of cities indicate that the location is unknown.(please note:this is not a definitive list of all the songs played in the summer). Recordings: Lists all dates confirmed to have bootleg recordings. MP3s: Lists the dates of the shows that have been encoded into MP3 format. Included is a description of quality, and track length info.

a word on mp3 information:

Since the downfall of napster, there have been great number of mislabeling of dates of songs.  Unless you can convince me of a wrong date, the information will remain the same.  This document has been the most up-to-date and accurate knowledge, I and others have put together.  However, if you do have a unmentioned mp3, or a disputed date, please contact me at weezerfaq@hotmail.com

4.0 Lyrics
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: These lyrics are the efforts of Nathan Scott and other fans to decipher what Rivers has been singing, often with only a bootleg to listen to. These are virtually guaranteed to be at least somewhat inaccurate. Whenever a lyric is utterly indecipherable, *'s are put in its place. Some lines may contain alternate wording, these will be contained within brackets, with a question mark following. Any lyrics within brackets that do not have a question mark should be considered background vocals (such as in My Brain).

--------------------------
4.0.1 Dope Nose
-------------------------

Dead, on my head
Wasting time on my own
Sleep, rescue me
Take me back to my home
(CHORUS)
For the times that you wanna go and Bust lines real slow
I'll appear, slap you on the face and Enjoy the show
This dope nose (knows?)
Trees, swing so good
On a vine, piece of land Phat, or big hair
Who could beat up your man?
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
[CHORUSX2]

-----------------------
4.0.2 Ev'ry Nite
------------------------

Every night,
When i go out to the clubs
Run away is the only way that I run
Stand there oh so still
I must be on some pills
Cause no one wants to see that I'm alive
Every night,
When I go out to the bars
People think i just came down from mars
Stand there oh so still
I must be on some pills
Cause no one wants to see that I'm alive
Now, Now
Every night,
When I go out crusin for some chicks
I drop a line
but nothing seems to stick
???shoes…
i sing the white boy blues
???other
Now, now
I don't see anything,
this is why I sing
to get these stupid feelings off my chest
Now, now.

--------------------------
4.0.3 Hash Pipe
-------------------------

(the lyrics featured here will differ from the album version of hashpipe, and im sure you can get those these elsewhere)

I can't help my  feeling that I'm out of my mind
These players come to get me cause they like my behind.
****************** trick.
Down on santa monica where tricks are for kids.
(CHORUS)
Oh, come on and kick me
Oh, come on and kick me
Come on and kick me
You got your problems
I got my ass wipe
You got your big cheese
I got my hash pipe

I can't help a fucking thing,
I'm out of control
I know that you don't care 
but I want you to know
************** favorite treat
oh man, that don't bother with a  taste of a teat
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
Oh, come on and kick me
Oh, come on and kick me
I got your remedy
You got your problems
I got my ass wipe
You got your big cheese
I got my hash pipe

-------------------------
4.0.4 Mad Kow
------------------------

I'm watching
And waiting
I'm disintegrating
I know that You'd hear me
If you could come near me
(CHORUS)
But no one
Can save me now
I'm lost
Just like a cow
Madness burning inside my brain
My brain
I'm falling
To pieces
I'm breaking my leases
I know that
You'd hear me
If you could come near me
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
[CHORUSX2]

---------------------------------
4.0.5 Modern Dukes
---------------------------------

Every time that I turn around I just hear the same old thing
Beg to try and just bring me back
To the place I couldn't keep
(CHORUS)
I'm an asshole
Storm the castle
Burn the bridges
Down to the ground
Take no prisoners
We're just visitors
We don't care about anything
That's the way these modern dukes should play It's every man here for himself
Every time that I turn around I just hear the same old crap
Trucks are trying to grease my
So that they can get laid back

4.0.6 My Brain (Is Workin' Overtime)
--------------------------------------------------------

My brain is workin' overtime
I need something to easy my mind
Cause as my thoughts go manic
I really start to panic
There's no place to hide behind I'm freakin' and hallucinating
Goin' last when I should wait
My parents think I'm lazy but damn, I'm goin' crazy
I can't help my mental state
(CHORUS)
You're all alone (he's trippin')
can't keep up (mental slippin')
take me brain out of my way
I work it to a frenzied clip
I bite the corners of my lip
I'm losing my appetite
My pants don't even fit right
Take away the night-glo bib
Give me something for my hair
Fresher pair of underwear
Cause if was hung over
My young friend would reach over
I just grip it, I don't care
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
I tell the world to fuck itself
Cause who decides what's sick or health?
And the people I see
That's making lots of benji's
Make me want to do myself
Start a brand new fashion trend
Closer off the deeper end ****
***** ******* ****
you'll fit right in.
[CHORUSX2]

4.0.7 O-Girl
-------------------

Oh girl, you look so sad
Burned out, and I've gone mad
Hell firing up the place
Tears on your face
Freaked out and scared to move
Don't wanna have to prove
That you're among the sane
Falling away
(CHORUS)
Oh girl, I thought you were cool
Until you tried not to get hurt
But now, I see in your eyes
The pain, that can be just lies
You're like me
Oh girl, you're trembling
Blank stare resembling
That you're among the sane (alt: That you're A.O.K.)
Please go away
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
Oh girl, you look so sad
Burned out, and I've gone mad
Hell firing up the place
Tears on your face
Freaked out and scared to move
Don't wanna have to prove
That you're among the sane
Falling away

4.0.8 On the Edge
----------------------------

Things are so complicated now,
I think I'm gonna throw up my neck
I don't know what tomorrow brings
and there ain't no way I can check
I go out to the movies
I tell my girl shes groovy
but no one never seems to get satisfied

Things are so complicated now,
I think I'm gonna curl up & die
one million things are in my head
and no matter how hard I try
can't seem to get sorted
Plans end up aborted
the dates that threw my country hands like rain

There ain't no better way to fly
I punched the devil in the eye
There ain't no better way to live
- On the Edge

Things are all jumbled up in knots
and I'm caught in the spiders web
only now just a matter of time
before he comes up to eat my head

So I better do now
funtime is all through now
give my presence to the zoo keeper

---------------------------------
4.0.9 Peace And Quiet
---------------------------------

Can I get some peace and quiet here?
I just want to drink an ice cold beer
Without feeling any kind of fear
Of what you're gonna say
Nestled in my hay
Waiting for someone to trip and fall
Fall
Can I get someone to pay my rent?
Turkey tidbits are just heaven sent
When you're living in an (Alto?) tent
With no sign of hope
Drinking shots of Skol
Waiting for someone to trip and fall
Fall
CHORUS)
Turn the beat up and down
(Turn the beat up and down)
Mesmerized to the sound
(Mesmerized to sound)
Make nobody believe who you are
Who you are
Can I get someone to pay my rent?
Turkey tidbits are just heaven sent
When you're living in an (Alto?) tent
With no sign of hope
Drinking shots of Skol
Waiting for someone to trip and fall
Fall
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]

4.0.10 Preacher's Son
---------------------------------

I can't help it girl
I'm a preacher's son
I must live for peace
Until the day is done
(PRE-CHORUS)
But I will never let you go
Once I have got you in my hold
I'm gonna mold you into something that I'd like
I can't change my ways
I'm a puppets fool
If you need a fix
Then I'll be your tool
[PRE-CHORUS]
(CHORUS)
Always take me back
Falling off the track
Always I'm on fire
To be
With you
Tonight
To make your body come
I can't be someone
That you wish I was
Just a tag-along
After you because
[PRE-CHORUS]
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
I can't be someone
That you wish I was
Just a tag-along
After you because

I can't help it girl

4.0.11 Slob
--------------------

Leave me alone
I won't pick up the phone
And I won't listen to messages
Sent by someone who calls up and says
(CHORUS)
I don't like how you're living my life
Get yourself a wife
Get yourself a job
You're living a dream
Don't you be a slob
Slob, slob
Leave me again
Don't hang out in my den
Waiting for little clues to appear
That I drank some of Grandaddy's beer
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
[CHORUS]

4.0.12 Superstar
----------------------------

(Note: CONFIRMED by WFO [www.weezer.net/wfo/index.htm])

There used to be a better kind of rock and rollin' superstar
They'd strut around and do their thing all I know how to do is sing
(CHORUS)
And I don't do that so well
I never summon things from hell
I'm just a regular white guy who's afraid to rock
so hard I'd break my guard
and give myself away
There used to be a better brand of frontman personality
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
[CHORUS]

------------------------------------
4.0.13 Too Late To Try
-----------------------------------

(Note: CONFIRMED by WFO [www.weezer.net/wfo/index.htm])

I don't want to die
Even though I have to I just want to live a long, long time
And I see the gang to which I belong
Time to sing out our happy song
Wouldn't it be a cruel joke
If it's too late to try?
Why?
I don't wanna grow
Even if it's good growth
I just wanna stay just like this
And I see the comfortable place to rest
Time to get this shit off my chest
Wouldn't it be a cruel joke
If it's too late to try?
Why?

----------------------------------------------------
4.0.14 Your Sister (The Sister Song)
----------------------------------------------------

Leaves, and pain, and nauseating pills
Lies, and nails, and nauseating bills
(CHORUS)
Why am I so hung up on your sister?
Why am I so hung up on your mom?
I thought that I would never even miss her
I thought that I would never use the bong
And I never cry like that
And I never swear like that
And I never lose my mind
Leaves, and pain, and dragon colored tears
Still remain and cover up in years
[CHORUS]
[SOLO]
[CHORUS]

5.0 Conclusions
-----------------------------------

----------------------
5.1 Finding MP3s
----------------------

Napster used to be the easiest place to find recordings of the songs.  In many cases, you still can...with napster or other music sharing programs.
I would suggest punching in the dates, or the name of the club they performed at. (I've made a quick reference guide to dates, new songs played and club names here).  Keep in mind that just because an mp3 is labeled with a date, does not  make it so, this goes for titles as well.  There are some great weezer pages that do have mp3s from time to time.  For rare mp3s, including summer songs give the Knock-Down-Dragout kids a try.  For just 2000 summer songs, Roman has set up a great page that isnt as psychotically obsessive as this FAQ is, but is wonderful for starters..along with  mp3s of most summer songs!

Another way to get out started is to visit the bi-polar newsgroup and the mostly lame message board at weezer.com for the latest information on surfacing bootlegs and mp3s.  There you can set up trades, or IM someone to get an mp3. Good Luck.  Remember if you find an mp3 that doesnt seem to match up, drop me a line.

----------------------
5.2 Beeswax  (the album that wasn't to be)
----------------------

Most songs from the summer 2000 did not make it to the long awaited third weezer album.  Rivers went into yet a different style of song writing, in the fall and winter of 2000.  These songs had their own distinctive vibe to them, just as the summer songs had their own feel.  My personal opinion is we will never hear real studio versions of these songs.  The Soundcheck demos seem to be surfacing song by song, let's hope that continues.  If Karl ever does get to put together a Weezer "anthology" we may yet get to hear some treats.  Time will tell...

-------------------
5.3 Final thoughts
-------------------

Again, if you have any corrections or additions for the weezer summer 2000 song FAQ write at: weezerfaq@hotmail.com
I am particuarly interested in information on the soundcheck demos the band cut in july and semptemeber of 2000,  information on what you have heard is surfaced, or what you have. Any information at all,  no matter how small, drop me a line at the above email address.

All other emails send to: frenchmustard@hotmail.com Thanks for visiting and correcting me, that's what makes the FAQ viable.
