Bill, webmaster of the popular NIN site "Screws In My Cranium," has received a promo CD for "Three MC's and One TR", which features two versions of the title track: the original and a 15-second-long radio edit.
He was kind enough to pass along a scan of the cover (right) as well as the lyrics (below). Rock on.
All I've undergone I will keep ON!
Underneath it all until the break of DAWN!
All the hands of hope have been with-DRAWN
MCA, try to help me to hang ON
My name's MCA and I am numb all THROUGH
But underneath it all I can still feel YOU
I rock the microphone, it's what I have to DO
Before everything else, I was like YOU!
I'm rockin' to the rhythm in the great be-LOW
Droppin' beats in the heads of everyone you KNOW
Catchin' a groove in arms of under-TOW
There is no other place that I can GO
Yeah, I'm drinkin' at the fountain of de-CAY
Leavin' all my insides cold and GRAY
Party people listen to the words that I SAY
I'll be rhymin' till the day the world goes a-WAY
(yeah that's right)
Three MC's and one TR!
Stayed on this track, now we've gone too FAR!
Mixmaster Trent, don't you fall a-PART!
(goddamn this noise inside my head!)
It is rumored that the Beastie Boys will be performing these songs live with Nine Inch Nails during the American leg of the Fragility tour. How in god's name they intend to pull that one off has yet to be seen.
You heard it here first!
