about

This is the standalone version of "Green" from our debut album '333'.

lyrics

I’ve seen the gaps between our generations grow
Passed around the common grounds,
Which most should surely know
My people need reprieve from the ills and the rage of modern society, They can’t take it no more and all that they want and need,
All now has gone to seed

We pay handsomely for government to guide us,
But the least among the fortuned have to pay

Still this victim you portray, just a lie that distorts it all
You’re only doing this to sway, your political platform
We’re gonna say what we’re gonna say like it or not
We’re gonna do what we’re gonna do, perish the thought
Seems the best that we can do is
The best we can for us and us alone

Both hands rest permanently upon the number 4
Dispense formalities come glue me to the floor
‘Cause that’s all you wanted it to be.
Do more than turn the other cheek
Change starts with you instead of “c”
Not white, not brown, just green

Green, vanish into the smoke
Unplug ourselves
This ain’t a war, a lie, a paradise
You ain’t the first, it isn’t yours

Green, vanish into the smoke
Unplug ourselves
This ain’t a war, a lie, a paradigm
You ain’t the first, it isn’t yours
Green
I got your green
