Song Squawk – Push Me Down

In the mid nineties, I had a little red Buick and a big ol’ bass box in the trunk, and would listen to “Christian Rock”, cranked to 11.

(What did you say?  Huh?  Can  you say that again, I didn’t hear you….)

I have gotten away from that genre for many reasons, the least of which may be a loss of hearing, but some songs have stuck with me over the decades.

The artist’s I listened to sought to reflect Scriptural teaching for the most part. They ranged from “preaching” pop culture religion to significant theological teaching. As I listened to the lyrics, I found some to be quite challenging.

To be honest, I listened because I could justify the rock beat with “sanctified lyrics”.

Occasionally I will post a song, supply the lyrics and make a comment or two. If you decide to listen to the tune, turn the speaker down unless you are already deaf. Some of the songs tend to have a certain “volume” about them!

This post will consider the song

Push Me Down – Plankeye

How can I move forward from this place?…of disgrace
I’m full of stone…immovable
Push me down
Push me down now
I might break in two
Suffer a chip
Create, create, create an opaque mess
I might break in two, Suffer a chip
Now all that echos in the chambers of my heart
Thin silhouettes of your truth
Push me down
Push me down now
Remove the veils that once were torn by your blood
Lift the scales that I might truly see all of you and you in me

Plankeye surprised me. Not a fan at the start, but they definitely became a band I would go back to. These guys were good

Let me know what you think of the lyrics, and of the tunes!

Thanks again for coming to visit. I hope you found something of interest in this post and would appreciate a comment, to begin a discussion.
