"Motion" is Smes' person cancer anthem. Its upbeat attitude reflects Smes' outlook in his fight against cancer.


The morning's bright, the road is clear ahead
I'm feelin' right, and I don't want to be led
Freedom is calling me home
So kick her on, and go beyond your boundaries.

The wind is brisk, and I know the risks ahead
But my heart is light, as I see the sights again
We only get this one time around
So I'll be damned, if I'm gonna stand, without motion

Life is short, but I can report
Something I saw to be true
It's not the destination we seek
But the journey which is true

The trees I pass are green and full today
I feel serene as I make my way
The curves ahead are still unknown
Well damn the curves, I'll steel my nerves and keep going


My soul is still, the ride's become my life
When trouble comes, I won't yield to strife
The road ahead can fear or joy
Well it's my choice, so hear my voice, I choose motion


Repeat first verse
