Green to Black
Rebelution Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Do you feel it now music's up in ya
Do you feel it loud straight to the ears man
It's that mean bass singing pleasure to meet ya
The green and black throw it up so we see ya

Do you feel the sound? It's coming straight through the waves
While the music from the Earth keeps us sane
I'm feeling that herb when the sun hits my face


You create your mind so make your mental space

Much respect to all the people thinking green
Not just the color but the message in between
Here's a mental weapon that you'll use frequently
To stop evil people and end their beliefs

[Chorus]
Green turned to black,
Green smoked to black,
Green burnt to black
Yea that's what we stand for

Well Mr. Tough Guy he fights physically
When all the people really need is some peace
It are these moments where we turn to our needs
It never caused no death nor disease

Don't try to make it seem like we're some foolish youth
Throwing away our lives, but we're searching for the truth
Don't need authority/rules while we go unheard
See there isn't any crime using herbs

Much respect to all the people thinking green
Not just the color but the message in between
Here's a mental weapon that you use frequently
To stop evil people and end their beliefs


[Chorus]

Overall Meaning

The song "Green to Black" by Rebelution is all about the power of music and marijuana to bring people together and promote positive change. The first stanza talks about the physical sensations of music, how it can fill you up and make you feel alive. The second stanza focuses on marijuana, describing how it can help calm the mind and create a safe space for personal growth. Both music and marijuana are presented as tools for self-discovery and community building.


The verses also touch on political themes, referencing the need to think critically about authority and the power of propaganda. The chorus repeats the phrase "green turned to black," which can be interpreted as a metaphor for the transition from peaceful resistance (green) to more radical forms of activism (black). The song's message is one of solidarity and empowerment, encouraging listeners to take control of their lives and fight against injustice.
