As our more astute visitors will have already gathered, we’ve got a new website. Also, the blog and website now live in the same place. We’re updating the shows page different too, so you can subscribe to the “upcoming shows” feed as an RSS feed or even as an iCal calendar.


I’m not sure what’s in store for Mojave in 2010, but we have a lot of ideas. Lisa and I are moving to beautiful Tofino in a couple weeks for some solitude, change and to focus on writing and crafting our music. It’s exciting and scary at the same time.


Not all the blog posts from the previous iteration of the blog have been moved to the new site. I wanted to start fresh, while keeping in mind that the most popular posts of the previous blog should be part of the new blog (which I’ve done). There is a permanent archive of the old blog here.


As an added bonus: sign up for our mailing list & get a 6-song sampler of unreleased, live & cover songs, the mailing list is in the right hand column on our website.

faultline

why can’t i just be perfect, then i would be good enough for you, maybe then i’d meet your expectations, maybe then i would not disappoint. why are you afraid of silence, why are you not listening to me, hands behind you the knife is slipping. take me down as i start tripping, trust me, trust me, trust me, trust me, take me down when i’m not looking, turn your back when i reach out to you, maybe i was just too trusting, maybe i wanted this too much. loosen this grip and watch you slip, i know your lies won’t break your fall, words that crack can’t take them back, you promised me this wouldn’t hurt at all. why are you afraid of silence, why are you afraid of silence.


lights out

just walk away from this, take whats yours and i’ll leave with mine, dont look back to this, it has to end for my life to begin. so quickly time is fading, will i hear you before the lights go out. i’ll make amends one day, until then i will still be afraid, but im ok right now, i cant look back, i need my life to begin.


hollow

waking on empty, i’m leaving you behind, its better im hollow, then having you inside. oh hollow. looking for something. i’m travelling to find, this journeys not over, though my faith is going blind. comfort in confusion, indulge in discontent,

hanging on to past securities, ignoring what is left. i’m taking over, i’m taking back whats mine, it’s better im hollow, than having you inside.


not obsessive – written by eric vani

could we have a little talk, about the fact that i feel like mud, do i look that dirty. drizzle wet seasons, and i guess it’s too early to talk that way, because they barely know me. i’ve got this tendency to play things up, i’ve got this neurotic dramatic trait, and it feels obsessive but i know it’s not, it feels obsessive but i know its not, i know its not. everyday i feel the symbol, of something more worthy in the back of my head, as you tear at me, and pride will shake this out of you,

and pride will shake you out of me, i’ll kneel and wash the mud from my feet.


a place that time forgot

i’m walking in a place forgotten, how did we make it out this far, you cannot tell me that im dreaming, this place is everything i want. i am here with you, i am not without. you take me away, but will you show me the way home, have my footsteps been buried. i know we will not soon forget this, even when we are far from here, this moment only lasts forever in our minds, but i know well be here again. i know i’ll miss you in september, but sometimes things just come between.


casa rosita

yesterday, waiting for today to begin, take it all, and take it in, our lives are ready to begin. morning light burn through the door, let me in, home is right where we are, this room, this place, this moment is all i need right now. desert spring, i’m listening to the season again, stories end, and stories begin. filled with hope, fulfilled within, this journeys ready to begin

through it all youre here with me, now we are ready to begin.


here i am

talk to me, tell me what you’re thinking, tell me how you’re feeling, here i am wanting you, and wanting nothing more. i know, things are complicated, and we are both so jaded, trying to convince ourselves that we can walk away. you’re breaking me down, and i am starting to drown. this is tearing me apart, it’s breaking my heart, please don’t cry, this is not goodbye, beautiful words to a beautifully sad song, wake up beside me and tell me that it will be okay. i don’t have the right to ask you, who you give your heart to, but mine is breaking thinking it is someone else but me. it seems darker here on this night, it seems we’ve lost the light, but i don’t want to lose the moment that we were found. talk to me, tell me what you’re thinking, tell me how you’re feeling, here i am.


unbroken

unbroken, the silence, it’s just so complicated, no questions, no answers, i guess it’s better left unsaid. unbroken, the tension, it’s always so frustrating, no resolve, no release, i guess signs are better left unread. i hope you will find some peace inside, i hope that i can find some sleep tonight. unbroken, the moment, so much is still left waiting, no closer, no wonder, I’m just so damn impatient. unspoken, i’m breaking, it’s just too complicated, no power, no control, no way we’ll leave unbroken. this glass is half empty, my mind is full, i do not make the logic, do with me what you will.


one will fall

speak to me like you want a conversation, look at me like you want to know what i am feeling, can one be all. all for one and one is all, and now one will fall, how will you fall. be with me cause were in this together, wait for me cause you want to know where i am going.

For A While

I’m looking around and I can’t believe, nothing’s what it use to be, I’m fighting the thoughts that I cannot speak, all these lies that set us free. Forget me please don’t let me hear the truth, I am not ready don’t let me close my eyes for a while. I’m stopping my mind and I cannot breathe, my lungs are caving in on me, I’m trying to pretend that I do not need rescuing. Forget me please don’t let me hear the truth, I am not ready don’t let me close my eyes for a while. Windows so dark won’t you turn on the lights, so dark, so dark, I can’t see the light, so dark, so dark, I can’t see the light, so dark, so dark, so let me close my eyes.


Crow’s Funeral

Sinking deeper down, I die a little, Holding on too tight, oh my God I’m bitter, I’m so cold, how did I get this old, I’m dying. Flying high, over fear, I buried myself today, through the corridors they fly away, to my funeral. Am I good enough to live a little, am I strong enough, when left in the middle, I’m so cold, how did I get this old, I’m dying. Flying high, over fear, I buried myself today, through the corridors they fly away. At my funeral I’ve woken up to find myself, at my funeral I’ve realized I’m alive, at my funeral, I’m alive. Flying high, over fear, I buried myself today, through the corridors they fly away, to my funeral.


Save Me

Here I am watching you look out your window, why haven’t you seen me by now, I have been waiting for you to uncover, pieces of me that I left at your door. Take in this moment try not to remember, anything other than what I have said, I’m only happy when you keep on drinking, fill up your glass, empty your head. Casillero del diablo, Save me! Casillero del diablo, Save me! I am tired of waiting, you are nowhere to be found, my glass is empty and you have still left me, breaking your promise until the next round. Casillero del diablo, Save me! Casillero del diablo, Save me!


Escape Plan

Why did I find out in a phone call, did I mean so little to you, imagine how long I sat there dissecting, the letter that you left me at the door.You left me still wanting to know if you were okay, I hate you, now that’s clear, I don’t want you here. Live your life not knowing what you’re missing, or do you know and just choose to ignore, how’s your life been living in the shadow, cause the light that’s left is treating me just fine. You left me still wanting to know if you were okay, I hate you, now that’s clear I don’t want you here.


Wake Up

Where’s the bigger picture I fit in, where is it that I will now begin, take apart what’s left inside of me, is there anything here that is free. Falling much deeper beneath, breathing your weakness in me. Seeking something that I’ll never find, I am slipping much further behind, when will I wake up and see the truth, when will I wake up. Empty spaces waiting to fill up, trusting fate will never be enough. Falling much deeper beneath, breathing your weakness in me. Where is it that I went wrong, what is it that I am missing, wake up! Where is it that I went wrong, what is it that I am missing, wake up! Falling much deeper beneath, breathing your weakness in me, breathing your weakness in me.


California

Heading down the coast to California, spending all my money on hopes and dreams, packing up my life inside a suitcase, tucked away in there is your doubt in me. Ink into me memories, the stories are you and me, follow where the music leads, and trust that it’s all we need. Trying to find myself inside the chaos, looking for the answers, searching for the key, wanting a revelation inside of me. Ink into me memories, the stories are you and me, follow where the music leads, and trust that it’s all we need. Fortunes find us all along this highway, trusting the hope and beauty in everyday.


Your Silence Betrays You

Who are you lately, can you lift yourself up or is your heart too heavy, who are you to judge, can you look at yourself or is your life too ugly? Do you know or do you care, there is so much life out there, do you want to make a change, yours silence betrays. You cannot hear me, no matter how hard I knock there is no answer, you cannot believe, no matter how hard I pray there is no savior. Do you know or do you care, there is so much life out there, do you want to make a change. Do you know or do you care, there is so much life out there, do you want to make a change, your silence betrays.


One Mistake

Are you the only one, who’s shit hasn’t turned out alright, who have you left behind, easy out was only for yourself. Were you even listening, or maybe we wasted our time, was there more to your life, just one stupid mistake, now you’ll take it with you. One million reasons why, your addiction to disaster, has come (to an end), she’s the first to suffer and witness, just how you’ll haunt us, with what’s worth dying for. Do things disappear, when you shut your eyes, what are you so afraid of, minds burn white from the light, should we watch you disappear, slowly fade until nothing is left, why’d you fight this alone, guess you’ll take this on your own. Just one stupid choice, just let it slip away, just one stupid regret. One million reasons why, your addiction to disaster, has come (to this end), she’s the first to suffer and witness, just how you’ll haunt us, with what’s worth dying for, did you find the peace, you were dying for.


No Tomorrow

Are you just another fucking number, and do you even count, when the only thing that matters, is not having a way out. Stand next to me through the storm, our stinging wounds will keep us warm, don’t be afraid as we march on, towards the flame, no tomorrow. Reaching into shallow water, when will we have enough, as everything around us crumbles, and empires turn to dust. Stand next to me through the storm, our stinging wounds will keep us warm, don’t be afraid as we march on, towards the flame. Stand next to me through the storm, our stinging wounds will keep us warm, don’t be afraid as we march on, towards the flame, no tomorrow.


Thank You

Thank you for giving me, my freedom, my freedom, it took a year long struggle, to realize, to realize. How long I have been lost, in meaningless portraits I have painted, your idiocy has granted me some clarity, so thank you. Thank you for drowning me, I’m breathing, I’m breathing, it took me suffocating, to thank you, to thank you. I’m happy that you’re gone, and happier now that I have woken up, to see the truth, so thank you. Thank you, my freedom, my freedom. Thank you, I’m breathing, I’m breathing. Thank you, my freedom, my freedom. Thank you, I’m breathing, I’m breathing.
