Lost Frontier
words by Lisa Derosia, music by Lisa Derosia and Greg Schultz

He walks across the street
Following the sweet smell of sorrow
He felt so alive
But how mush of this a btter pill tomorrow
He only asks for kindness
But love is what his body most desires
And he longs to be a rich man
But poverty is all that he requires

If there was a woman once
She’s long been left behind for drugs and dreaming
And if there was a dream
It has been denied by prayers and scheming
And if there is a god it’s not likely that you’re gonna find him here
Walking down the corridors that disappear into the lost frontier

Out in the lost frontier it’s where we go to disappear
To sink into the sidewalks
And sleep beneath the boardwalks
Where lovers coo and money talks
Like no one else is here

He was once his mother’s darling
Once a baby rocking in the cradle
But the boy grew up early
And that baby was soon hard to recognize
Now from the window of his rented room
He smokes a cigarette and tries hard to remember
How he wound up in this city
Not beneath the cover of a western sky

Out in the lost frontier it’s where we go to disappear
To sink into the sidewalks
And sleep beneath the boardwalks
Where lovers coo and money talks
Like no one else is here
