Son's Gonna Rise Lyrics
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...

Keep it simple. He is driving his wife to the hospital. She is in labor. His son will be born, and he will rise and get his shot to live.

I think it speaks of heroin addiction. The son's gonna rise in a mile. In a mile you'll be feeling fine(since you've taken that shot of dope). In a mile you will see after me you'll be outta the dark, yea you'll get your shot.(In a few mins you'll get a chance after I've taken my shot of dope...you'll get your shot of dope which will bring you "outta the dark"---where addicts are in the time in between fixes---when "you get YOUR shot.
Rolling down the highway like a rocket---things are good when you're HIGH. Got a woman in the back seat she's my wifey, in the middle of delivery---she's fixing up his shot of dope, gonna "deliver" it OR you could say that the Heroin is the wife...Man she saved me(with a fix)...she picked me up when I was down on the road with the wind and the cold(that's how every addict feels about heroin when they feel the rush and it saves them from the horrible feelings before the fix.
Just sayin'---I love this guy's music and SOOO many of his songs have heroin themes or references...no harm meant in my interpretation

A song about prophesying the coming birth of his ''Son's Gonna Rise'' moment. In coming with the glow of hope, to do good for all good people as a future global Citizen that will be able not to be in need for a cane to raise himself up with, but only his Father that will teach him well to see after him when he gets his chance to come out of the dark to see the light of life that his son will be born into.

The song start off with a character, lets assume it's clarence ( Citizen cope), driving down a high way. He has is "Woman" in the back, who is his "Wifey". And this woman is in "Delivery" Meaning she is going into labor. The song describes the way he feels as he is driving her to the hospital to have his baby be born. "The son gonna rise in a mile" His son will be born in a mile, when they reach the hospital. The baby "will be feeling fine" once they reach the hospital. The baby will "See, after me" Meaning he will raise him and he will see the way Clarence does. "Out of the dark" means out of the womb, and into the light of the day. And he will "get a shot" at life.
