Biography

A band destined for big things is what you would think after seeing them live or listening to one of their songs. MojoRising is a rock & roll band from Melbourne fusing elements of blues, funk and rock in a world where reality talent contestants are infecting the charts. Lead singer, songwriter and keys player Jozsef James fronts the band in a way reminiscent of the late Michael Hutchence and is the creative center of the group. Backed up by the cliche 'crazy, don't know how long he wll live for' drummer is the hard hitting Aki Papas who is also a talented session drummer who has been in other Melbourne bands and on flaming guitar is prodigy Sam Ploutos adding his bluesy guitar riffage.

With many relevant themes in the songs you hear such as freedom, love, hurt, rebellion and music it is important to know that they play with a certain ferociousness on stage and is something that must be experienced. This band was made to fill stadiums, but for the moment they will pack clubs and pubs around town and wll leave you remembering the time you first saw them play live

Lyrics

Lost In The Desert Of My Mind

Written By: Jozsef James

I’ve been waiting for a lifetime waiting for you to come
I’ve been stuck on repeat drinking myself to death
It’s been so many years I never thought I’d find the one
I can’t pin my hopes up thinking that you’ll fix this broken son

[CHORUS]
I cannot see the light my eyes are burning
I cannot fight the fire if I’m hurting
There’s more here you can’t see of my inner workings
I listen to the voice in the breeze have you heard it?
Have you heard it? The world keeps turning. I gotta keep on moving

So the story goes on I want to talk about things to come
I’ve been scared so senseless trying to be the strongest one
I know in my mind when I call on you, you will come
But I can’t live my life waiting,
I gotta keep on moving

[CHORUS]

So the story goes on do you want to know how it ends?
Did she fuck with my heart – is my heart still on the mend?
And I know Im destined to walk this world alone
But we cant spend our lives waiting, we gotta keep on moving

Have you heard it? The world keeps turning. I gotta keep on moving.

Take Me There

Written By: Jozsef James

Do you fantasise?
Do you think about things
How we used to be
Do you think about me
And the love we made that night?
You’re no longer mine
But there’s been no substitute
No-one better than you
No-one makes me feel like you do

If I close my eyes
She takes me back in time
And this is what she said to me

CHORUS:
You make me feel weak
You make my heart sink
When you’d take me there
I’d feel vibrations
Sweet sensations
You’re the only one who could take me there

Do you fantasise?
Do you think about things
How we used to be
Do you think about me
And the shit you said that night?
You’re no longer mine
But there’s been no substitute
No-one better than you
No-one that has a mouth like you

When I close my eyes
She takes me back in time
And this is what she said to me

CHORUS X 2

Take me there (I’ll take you there)
Take me there (I’ll take you there)
Take me there (I’ll take you there baby)
C’mon c’mon c’mon ‘cmon now baby x 4
