The Things That Push Me Away

from by Smokey Folk



This song is an abstract musical representation of the adversity we all face through out our lives. Things that haunt us, trouble us, who and what we turn to to find truth and absolution. Personified by middle eastern undertones and neoclassical orchestrations, this song was written to instill a feeling of transcendence an aggression in the pursuit of resolution.


Waves that swallow all men and despair, souls that hide in our darkest dreams-the sun will shine on an open sea, the skies will light up the world
Swirling suns and clouds of a different kind, mask my view of the heavens way, The sun will shine on an open sea, the skies will light up the world, all these things that follow me, i will find them and push them away, all these things that swallow me, through all this pain only two will remain
