Green means GO!!!

It's been 10 years and this song's still messing with my head. Sometimes it's almost like my folks talking to me... (so what's your plan? what are you gonna do now? what's next? what and when??!). But you know, it's not like you can just will something to happen overnight. There's no magic pill, no genie in a bottle and certainly no formula. Things just happen and I believe in right timing.

A certain shade of green
Tell me is that what you need
All signs around say move ahead
Will 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 the road is clear
And street signs point the way

Are you gonna stand around till 2012 A.D
What are you waiting for
A certain shade of green?
I think I grew a grey watching you procrastinate
What are you waiting for
A certain shade of green

Would a written invitation
Signed choose now or lose it all
Sedate your hesitation
Or inflame and make you stall

You've been raised in limitations
But that glove never fit quite right
The time has come for hand-me downs
Choose anew, please evolve, take flight

What are you waiting for?
A written invitation?
A public declaration?
A private consolation?
Remember when you procrastinate you chose last
