"Make a Move" as written by Christopher Charles Lloyd, Waynne Jason Nugent and Kevin John Risto....
I'm at the end of my report again
For those who won't do apathy
You had the perfect opportunity
But pled the fifth and walked away

Say something
Make us proud
Cast the first stone
Say anything at all

Make a move
For every one thing we're ignorant of
A thousand more things beat the maze
You saw the apple hanging on the tree
But missed the orchard in your gaze

Say something
Make us proud
Cast the first stone
Say anything at all

Make a move
(hands on the eyes are the engines of demise)
Make a move

I'm cautious of who I would call a friend
Who you aquaint is who you are
The darkest hours are when we choose a side
So make your pick and take a fall

Say something
Say anything at all
Make a move
(hands on the eyes are the engines of demise)
Make a move

    General CommentBasically it's saying get off your ass and go do something...make something of yourself. It's pretty obvious what they're saying...but I suppose there could also be some deeper meanings. But right now I'm too lazy to look into it. =P

    General CommentBrandon's saying "Hey, you've never made the first move before. Why not try and see if you can do something for once?"

    This song could've easily gone on Make Yourself if it was written back then. this song is freaking insane.

    General Commentthis song is pretty awesome, was this song written after ACLOTM? I think it was, if so it demostrates that incubus hasn't lost their way because last records was different of what fans where used to.. still its a GREAT record.
    i missed this incubus's sound..

    General Commentthis song rocks so much.

    I think it means like...if you're having problems with your friend's, but everybody's acting like it's nothing, you need to be the one to step up, and make a move. Cast the first stone to end the silence.

    I'm speaking purely from experience because I'm in this spot with my friends.

    "Hands on your eyes are the agents of demise" is an important phrase because it says...if you all pretend like nothing is wrong then it will all eventually destroy you.

    General CommentThe point isn't knowingly having a clue as to what they mean, it's about knowingly having a clue as to what it means to you, simple...

    General CommentI think the message depicts how one might fail to branch out into other points of view, or just might refuse to, due to their own narrow dogma. Also, notioning towards being weary of the choices that you make, because your choice becomes your label, kind of like...be open to your own suggestion, and explore all aspects. "Make your pick and take your fall", a chance is all you've got, so you might as well take it and seize the opportunity for all it's worth.

    Oh well, blah, that's my take, because I forgot about it in my last post...sayonara...

    General Commentwell friends, this one definitly has some "Make Yourself Sound", and its really fun and awesome just the same. Though it was first released on the "Stealth" movie OST. And that album has "Aqueus Transmission" on it, and a couple of others. Though its got old sound, the new video for it really gives it some new edge. Go check it out for yourself!
