Gruff Rhys - Frontier Man Lyrics




On the frontier of delusion
I'm your foremost frontier man
When they mistook you for beauty
They were eventually faced by a miserable clown

Still I sing my way to spaces
That modelling shouldn't quest
When the dinner isn't ready
I'm your uninvited guest

Frontier man, frontier man
On the frontier of delusion
I'm your foremost frontier man
Frontier man, frontier man
On the frontier of delusion
I'm your foremost frontier man

When the artists motivation
Are the gigs that come from rage
The nightmare of existence
Are thrust into the stage

But compared to the totalitarian
Their win seems soft and clean
When the future isn't broken
By a fence that we pool in

Frontier man, frontier man
On the frontier of delusion
I'm your foremost frontier man
Frontier man, frontier man
On the frontier of delusion
I'm your foremost frontier man

(Frontier man, come in, your work is done)
Feels like I've just begun
(Frontier man, can't you see what you've become?)
Just a monument of times gone wrong
(Frontier man, come [?])
Can't see without my glasses on
(Frontier man, let's sing a different song)
Wake me from my coma

Frontier man, frontier man
On the frontier of delusion
I'm your foremost frontier man
Frontier man, frontier man
On the frontier of delusion
I'm your foremost frontier man

    [Verse 1]
    On the frontier of delusion
    I'm your foremost frontier man
    When they mistook you for beauty
    They were eventually faced by a miserable clown

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Still I sing my way to spaces
    That modelling shouldn't quest
    When the dinner isn't ready
    I'm your uninvited guest

    [Chorus]
    Frontier man, frontier man
    On the frontier of delusion
    I'm your foremost frontier man
    Frontier man, frontier man
    On the frontier of delusion
    I'm your foremost frontier man

    [Verse 2]
    When the artists motivation
    Are the gigs that come from rage
    The nightmare of existence
    Are thrust into the stage

    [Pre-Chorus]
    But compared to the totalitarian
    Their win seems soft and clean
    When the future isn't broken
    By a fence that we pool in
