A Certain Shade Of Green Lyrics

A certain shade of green,
tell me, is that what you need?
All signs around say move ahead.
Could someone please explain to me your ever present
lack of speed?
Are your muscles bound by ropes?
Or do crutches cloud your day?
My sources say...

    I would have to say that my interpretation of this song is probably as good as it's gonna get. The song itself is about marijuana; certain shade of green. It's true meaning is about getting someone to try it who is a little unstable and probably a little nervous about trying it. Brandon's lyrics sustain a sense of comfort for whom ever the song is for by insinuations that say "it'll be ok". These following lines attribute to my description:

    "Could someone please explain to me your everpresent lack of speed?"

    "Are your muscles bound by ropes?"

    "You're gonna stand around 'til 2012 A.D. What are you waiting for, a certain shade of green?"

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
