There was a time not so long ago
When I thought I knew my name
Now I can see there is more to me
More than I can explain
Not just a face or a bank account
More than a Yale degree
I spend my time keeping focus on
The things that I long to be

GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, GREEN
GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, GREEN
GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, GREEN
GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, GREEN

Vibrating each at a different rate
My thoughts cannot fall in line
I take a deep breath and I stand and wait
I still can’t make up my mind
Don’t want to be blue, yellow, red
They’re no good to me
They don’t give me what I need
I’m looking for peace
And for love and eternal bliss
I’m looking to be serene

I want to be…

GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, GREEN
GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, GREEN
GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, GREEN
GREEN, GREEN, GREEN, GREEN


To be in between
To see the unseen
To not need codeine
To build enough steam
To break the machine
To make a machine
To change the routine
To take a vaccine
To come up with a scheme
To wear gaberdine
In a Green submarine
I got to be Green…

    General CommentThis song is about someone having an awakening and realizing that they are more than just the body they inhabit. And "Green" refers to wanting to be peaceful or at piece.

    General CommentI believe "Green" has to do with chakra colors. It's weird, you never really hear thoughtful lyrics like this with such loud music.
