Crystal Frontier

This song is by Calexico and appears on the album Aerocalexico (2001).

Marco's shadow falls on the door
To the Seven Lost Cities of Gold
Finds a raven's head and a rattle snake's tail
Dead in his tracks, this Godforsaken souls
Unwanted here and his curse lingers for years

Amalia's face hides behind the mask
Sweating on the TV factory line
That smile on her face is starting to crack
While welding back the pieces of a shattered heart
That's scattered out here, with the ghosts of her peers
Searches for her lost child along the River of Tears
The River of Tears

The end of the working week
When drunken worlds meet
Both sides keeping a close eye
For a break in the line here
On the Crystal Frontier
The Crystal Frontier

The ground is shaking and is starting to crack
Can't find the pieces of their shattered heart
That's scattered out here, with the ghosts that never disappear
Searches for that lost child along the River of Tears
The River of Tears

Blood spills out on the streets
And bodies are missing for weeks
Both sides keeping a close eye
Watching the bullets fly here
On the Crystal Frontier
The Crystal Frontier

Ramon tightens up his leather belt
And slips through a hole in the fence
He can get you anything you want
It might cost you a life, it might cost you
The whole price of freedom here
On the Crystal Frontier
