Marco's shadow falls on the door to the 7 lost cities of gold
Finds a raven's head and rattler's tail
Dead in his tracks, this Godforsaken soul's
Unwanted here and his ghost 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 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, crystal frontier

Ramon tightens up his leather belt and slips on 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

Searching for your lost love along the 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, crystal frontier
