"Someone In The Road" as written by and Marc Andrew Roberge....
I was riding down the highway when I thought I
Spotted someone in the road
I said, "You going my way?"
And he turned his head and said, "Man, I don't know."
So I asked about his government and he turned his head and then began to laugh
And I asked him, "what you running from?"
And he said, "My man, I'm running from my past."
And we laughed aloud, and sang aloud
And then we drank a brew

I didn't think a thought about Mr. Brown, he's through.
I heard the loud, marching sound, of a revolution coming through.
There's no need to come around unless you're true.
Someone in the road.
Well we kept on driving down that road for about an hour and half.
The way that we were moving left half myself
Reflecting in the past
Tired of endless talking, stopped the car and
Started walking down a path.

Lifted spirits to my heart,
Lord knows that anger never lasts.
And we laughed aloud, and sang aloud
And then we drank a brew
I didn't think a thought about Mr. Brown, he's through.
I heard the loud, marching sound, of a revolution coming through
There's no need to come around unless you're true.
Someone in the road.

    General Commentnot exactly sure, but its a theme in a lot of songs ("about mr. brown" for example)
    it could be like..the person the conforms to society, or someone that makes wrong choices. or pretty much whoever it is to you. the great thing about OAR songs is that they can apply to so many different things.

    General CommentPretty much every song on "The Wanderer" album is based off the short story "The Wanderer"...they have used this story to influence their songs in many ways. Yet all the other albums feed off of it to. I think it is amazing what they have done music wise.
