The shooter in the balcony Is closer than you think The bullet's in the back of my mind While I'm staring down the bridge Oh, he was watching everything The secrets I kept hid For fear that they would see my mistakes Or I'd see those older kids Where's my good fight? I'm my own Lee Harvey Oswald Taking my aim through the sight At my own parade Assassinating my character Long live JFK The shooter in the balcony Picks off everyone around I tried to tell you run for your life But I couldn't make a sound Where's my good fight? I'm my own Lee Harvey Oswald Taking my aim through the sight At my own parade Assassinating my character Long live JFK

You wouldn't call me flower If you knew what I had done You stayed up through the night To go and check on everyone It always makes me wonder How you never lost your way And would you stick around If she was asking you to stay? So many different people Who were glad to take your name I'll listen to your stories And I'll try to do the same You told me you were strong Inside the hospital that night You knitted him a uniform To make him see the light She runs She runs a tighter ship than me Oh, Captain Liebherr She runs She runs a tighter ship than me Oh, Captain Liebherr Her husband bought her sandwiches And kissed her on the lips The Captain said that he could stow away aboard her ship I saw them sail away As I was watching from the pier She told me they'd be back for me again This time next year She runs She runs a tighter ship than me Oh, Captain Liebherr She runs She runs a tighter ship than me Oh, Captain Liebherr

He's a regular Christian Pony Born in the Brooklyn Zoo You can see him with his Mother and Father Doing things that Ponies do Doing things that Ponies do Milk and cookies and baseball practice Played in the Brooklyn Zoo See him run in his nylon pinstripes Doing things that Ponies do Doing things that Ponies do Everyday the sun is shining Everyday the sun is shining through You see, everything's about to change for you Everything's about to feel brand new She's a regular Boston Cobra Born in my neighbour's pool You can see her sharp teeth growing Swimming in my neighbour's pool Swimming in my neighbour's pool Field rats and a broken bottle Swimming in my neighbour's pool See her slide up the deep end ladder Swimming in my neighbour's pool Swimming in my neighbour's pool Everyday the sun is shining Everyday the sun is shining through You see, everything's about to change for you Everything's about to feel brand new

Cosmo Kramer goes to slide into the room To find it's locked From the inside In the morning with a catchphrase locked and loaded Jerry's not on the inside Forgotten all the lines again But I don't need lines To hold a conversation Look into my eyes again Remind me how it flows Without my hesitation Over coffee in the diner down the street The penny drops on the inside No more script and no more need to bite your lips Now you're here on the outside Forgotten all my lines again But I don't need lines To hold a conversation Look into my eyes again Remind me how it flows Without my hesitation Oh oh, you You speak too soon Well there's a thousand different voices in my brain And I hate them all the same Cosmo Kramer goes to slide into the room To find it's locked

I ran for my life Bragged of my speed While all of my colours were running dry I sheltered my chest Locked it away Waiting for someone to come along Someone to pick my locks Who knows I've lost the key I walked to your door Looked at the sign Telling me I couldn't do this alone I need you next to me I made up my mind Let you inside Stopped for the first time in my life And now I am lying here, exhausted, crying next to you
