Rollin' down the highway
Like a rocket
Headed to town now
You can't stop it
Got wheel in my hand
As I stand
On the floor
Of the board
Of this car
On the road
Got this woman in the back seat
Yeah she's my wifey
In the middle of the delivery
Man she saves me
To this day I don't know why
She picked me up
When i was down on the road
With the wind when it blowed

Well a son's gonna rise in a mile
In a mile
In a mile
You'll be feeling fine
In a mile you will see
After me
You'll be out of the dark, yeah
You'll get your shot

    General Commentthis song, in the literal sense, is about the day his child was born and how he felt rushing his wife to the hospital. "Rollin' down the highway. Like a rocket..." And in one more mile, they'll be at the hospital and she will be fine. It's a mix of wanting to reassure his wife and being so focused on that everything else fades...hence the repetitive words...

    General CommentI first heard this song on One Tree Hill, and it was from that scene when they were all dancing. It just sounded so gound, i would dance to this song, it is chill, but it could make you feel better if you dance to it. i really want to get his cd, i hear its awesome and chill.

    General CommentI think the song is about hope. Something we all need. I like the little guitar solo thingy too.

    General Commentsons gonna rise to me means that days gonna come. The day that my dream world becomes reality or anyone in that matter who dreams in the dark, the sun will rise for you. Citizen Copes symplistic and repetative lyrics are amazing. I loved his music since i heard "salvation" its good to see other people appreciate good music!

    General Commenti believe the last line is "you'll get your child" not "you'll get your shot".
    anyway it's obviously about his wife in labor in the back of his car, at least on a literal level. and oprah tits is really funny.
