Track Name: Lee Harvey Oswald/Pornograph
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
Track Name: Captain Liebherr
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
Track Name: Christian Pony/Boston Cobra
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
Track Name: Cosmo Kramer
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
Track Name: Untitled #1
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
