Trent's Speech

Does anybody has a transcript (or could make one) for Trent's Speech from the Las Vegas show, December 13th, 2008??

I downloaded the show from here and it's really hard to understand - at least for me. english isn't my native language and trent is very hard to hear on the recording.

so if anybody could help, i would be very thankfull.. i'd like to add the speech to the lyrics MP3 tag in iTunes.

thank you!

All I remember is him saying something about taking the screens they used and installing them in his home so he could watch porn?

I was a wee bit inebriated at that show. :/

OK. Here's what I hear. Feel free to sing out if you hear differently. The stuff in parentheses I'm not 100% sure about... but I got most of it for you.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

(Read em this?) (Jesus Christ...)

"Trent, since you laughed at bras for big fucking titties here's some huge granny underpants. Sexy and practical." It's good to be me...

Thank you very much for coming out to see us tonight.

This is the, uh, the last show of the tour. The last show of this band actually. I'd like to, uh, introduce the guys in the band:

On guitar: Robin Finck
On the drums: Josh Freese
Keyboards: Alessandro Cortini
And on bass: Justin Meldal-Johnsen

We, uh, we've been working away at this for about a year and uh, this is it - after tonight we pack all this shit up. I gotta figure out how to hook this up in my house so I can watch porn on it, but I'm not sure if I can do that.

But, uh, tonight, as some of you may know, is, uh, Josh's last night in the band. And also, it's also Alessandro's last night in the band. And I would just like to say thank you to both you guys... It's been an honour, I love you, and I've been proud(ly) of you ??? this thing. Let's hear it for these guys.

All right, I'm getting all teary-eyed here. On our website the other day I posted something about not playing any more. And, uh, here's, here's the scoop:

We're going to reform. With these guys splitting, uh, we thought about it a lot and instead of trying to make this show again we decide to, uh, deconstruct everything. So we're going to start up in Australia in Janu-, uh, in February. As a four piece. We're gonna do things, uh, from scratch. And then we're gonna play a series of shows that I'm not supposed to announce yet. It's going to be in the States starting April. And then we're gonna go to Europe for a little while and then that's it, so... get it while you can.

That's it for now. I mean (but, you never know?) with me, you know? You never know.

I'd also like to, while I'm rambling on, uh, genuinely thank my crew for putting up with me and being able to pull of this show every night. It's an incredible pain in the ass, and I am an incredible pain in the ass. Thank you guys.

Who else can I thank? Be thankful that we got nominated for best R&B act on the Grammys? That'll go nicely with my heavy metal... best heavy metal performance that I get a few years ago and uh... uhhh, what can I say? (I give up). Thank you guys.
