Phlebia - Among The Waves

Her stone hands now clasped together.
Standing sentry at the siren's grave.
A prayer for the sea she whispers silent
The moon humming her reverie.

Gravel squares of aspiration gone to waste
Baptised in dust and blasted by the waves
Billowing towers frame the sea pierced with light
This toxic air like machetes in my skin

Oh Persephone please move me.
Fields doused in acid rain.
Artemisia embalming
And drowned among the waves.

Among the waves.

Observing dryad I become hollow,
robed in creeper and cloaked in poison
Slain in the daylight, why has it come to this.
A cold wind blows in the gallery.

Oh Persephone please move me.
Fields doused in acid rain.
Artemisia embalming
And drowned among the waves.

Please Move by Vom Vorton

Well you’ve got the LOUDEST SNEEZE I’ve ever heard
one blast of that thing and the birds flee from the trees
and so I’m asking you to pleeeeeease MOVE

And you’ve got no VOLUME CONTROL
I guess it should have been a warning
when we heard you screaming at your kid
on a Sunday morning
I wonder would you pleeeeeeease MOVE

walking past our window with no clothes you’re one big indecent exposure - I won’t comment on the odour
one hint of sun, speakers cranked on the patio, I’m thinking “heck no”, I don’t want to hear your German techno… can I get a little respect… no?

well you must be the RUDEST FOLK I’ve ever known
can’t take a joke, knock at my door and then implore
me to “turn it down”
it might be easier for you to please… MOVE?

Please Move - Tim Hinkle

Throbbing, pulsing waves of blood
and smoldering, overheating minds
tick and tock you into place
until no refuge I can find.

I try to focus on one thought
and carry on across the noise
before it can my will encase
and my volition it destroys.

Please move—
A tiny voice inside me fights to rise above the din.
Please move—
It gathers strength, my fingers twitch, I come alive again.
Please move—
I mumble audibly. “What’s that?” “No, nothing, just a song.”
Please move—
I have to hope this melody can propel me along.

At last the sun begins to set
sanguineous tides finally ebb
in the stillness of the night
my mind shakes free from daylight’s web.

Please Move - Paco del Stinko

We're drowning in plastic
It's tragic, I'm spastic
The only way out is through non-existant magic

We've had a good run but the end has begun

Please move it's all we can do (All we can do)
Make an effort we've got everything to lose
And it's me and you and the world (The whole wide world)
Singing the blues
Tired and true


So tried and true
So tired and true
So tried and true

The Earth is on fire
But we never tire of self-immolating
On our own funeral pyre (You know that I would be a liar)

We're headed for extinction a significant distinction
is that we did it to ourselves
The dinosaurs didn't and they went to hell
But what does it say about our own pathetic display
that we had the option to right our wrong ways
But we didn't and won't
for short term enjoyment like plastic and cell phones
So have your eight kids in your five bathroom homes
as we put in a Walmart where the buffalo roamed
Keep on drilling for oil
Breathe in the burnt coal
Man is short-sighted selfish and spoiled
Close the book on a story done told

We swept it under the rug
High on cheap drugs and
The only thing left will be roaches and bugs

Please move
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Please Move
Berkeley Social Scene

Looking down from a thousand feet
Vision so obscured
No markers or guides to show the way
With footing so unsure

I’ve been in this place myself
So many trying times
But if you can take a step right now
The rest will fall in line

Is the world crashing down upon your head
No exit you can see
A little sign that it’s ok
A smile you can free

I can see how you got here
Twisting on the vine
Trust that if you step right now
The rest will fall in line

Please move
I know it seems impossible but
Push through
Bright colors are seen all around in what
You do
You’re not alone, I’m right here now just
Please move
I know it seems impossible but

So many ways that you can go
There’s one that you can find
Trust that if you step right now
The rest will fall in line

Please move
I know it seems impossible but
Push through
Bright colors are seen all around in what
You do
You’re not alone, I’m right here now just
Please move
I know it seems impossible

Please Move

It's now your turn again
the game grinds to a halt
analysis paralysis
you're helpless in zugzwang
I'm sorry but you can only blame yourself
it fills my wounds with salt

I've got position
but you have points
your next decision
is gonna hurt
it's all connected
don't be a droid
all my intentions
you can't avoid

please move, please move
please move, please move
please move, please move

I will not take a draw
I think you should resign
your ego can't accept defeat
but now you're just wasting time
you've gone through all of the choices
there's no good way out of this bind

you had a vision
I read the room
it's so cathartic
to take a piece
you took the bait
it spelled your doom
not with a whimper
but with a boom

please move, please move
please move, please move
please move, please move

the consequences
are not so bad
it's just a loss
so try to learn
these circumstances
might make you mad
you make advances
with what you have

please move, please move
please move, please move
please move, please move

Please Move (Muevan por favor)
Micah Sommersmith

Hay un lugar, princesa, donde no hay tristeza
Y no necesitas droga ni cerveza
Deja tu toalla, pues no es la playa
El lugar se halla dondequiera que
La música suena claramente
Y la gente deja que sus cuerpos muevan

Por favor, muevan por favor

Ven, mi bien, ni modo que no sepas cómo,
Lo que hay que hacer pues es moverse
Hasta el amanecer
(Hasta el amanecer)
Hasta el amanecer
(Hasta el amanecer)

Sabes que el movimiento es el gran evento
Que nos puso Dios aquí para cumplir
Y sabes que el ritmo siempre es legítimo
Y siempre hay que nuestros cuerpos muevan

Por favor, muevan por favor
Muevan por favor, muevan por favor
