Calexico is a Tucson, Arizona-based Americana / Tex-Mex / indie rock band. The band's two main members, Joey Burns and John Convertino, first played together in Los Angeles as part of the group Giant Sand. They have recorded a number of albums on Quarterstick Records, while their 2005 EP In the Reins recorded with Iron & Wine has reached the Billboard 200 album charts. Their musical style is influenced by traditional Latin sounds of mariachi / conjunto / cumbia / Tejano music and also the Southwestern United States country music as well as '50s-'60s jazz and '90s-'00s post-rock, and they have been described by some as "desert noir" or indie rock. The band is named for the border town of Calexico, California. more »

From the empty streets to abandoned homes
There's a stinging feeling in my eye
Shelter underground in case the big one comes
Why would you plan for it not to work out right?

My focus was blurred
As the world became consumed
For who?

From the lookout tower another fired flare
I wonder if there's a light inside that heart
To escape the mess from every misstep
Why build another bridge that lead nowhere

My focus was blurred
As the world became consumed
For who?

What's embedded, we're coming up for air
Becomes outdated, we're coming up for air
Lost in the details, we're coming up for air
It's raining ashes, we're coming up for air
We're coming up for air

We're coming up
Even though they say it won't change a thing
These broken promises
Only can last so long
'Fore it all goes away
