Lyrics

Original

Woo!
Oh, yeah

Rolling around at the speed of sound
Got places to go - got to follow my rainbow
Can't stick around - have to keep movin' on
Guess what lies ahead - only one way to find out

Must keep on moving ahead
No time for guessin' - follow my plan instead
Trusting in what you can't see
Take my lead - I'll set you free

Follow me - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through
Follow me (follow me) - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through - prove it to you
Follow me - oh, yeah

Danger is lurking around every turn
Trust your feelings - got to live and learn
I know with some luck that I'll make it through
Got no other options - only one thing to do

I don't care what lies ahead
No time for guessin' - follow my plan instead
Find that next stage no matter what that may be
Take my lead - I'll set you free

Follow me - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through
Follow me (follow me) - set me free - trust me
And we will escape from the city
I'll make it through - prove it to you
Follow me
Follow me
I'll make it through - oh, yeah

Trivia

In the Sonic Generations version of the song (for Classic Sonic only), a segment of Endless Mine Zone's music from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 can be heard, most likely because Jun Senoue was a part of Sega's Sound Team behind some of the tracks in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic 3 & Knuckles. In Modern Sonic's version, the guitar riff from It Doesn't Matter (SA2) was mixed in, most likely because Jun Senoue was the composer for much of Sonic Adventure 2's soundtrack.
