Green Shades by Sam Ock

2010 ISA Breakout performer Sam Ock released a new original track called Green Shades. Here’s a little more about the song:

This song is ‘Green Shades’. I’m not sure why. I’m not super sure what this song’s about. I keep hearing all these new songs from famous artists talking about how they’ve got it all going great for themselves, that they have the truth in their rhymes. I’ve come to realize that admitting you don’t know much of anything and welcoming advice in your life is a path to finding true and lasting relationships with people. The more you know, the more you know you know nothing. I turn to Jesus for knowledge and strength. What about you? =]

Lyrics to Green Shades by Sam Ock

I’ve come to realize the older I get
The lesser I know, the less I respect
The image of a man who boasts in his strength
In mental fortitudes, or of his higher rank
I’ve come to realize more about knowledge
There’s more to life than saying that you “got this”
More to questions than having just the answers
What is pride, but a mental type of cancer
Killing you slowly while you’re on that pedestal
The world spinnin’ under you, while you’re standing still
Boasting in yourself, I call it weakness
You don’t understand the valor in “meekness”
No, see you don’t really get it
This is the truth, that doesn’t need no edit:
When you humble yourself, then you know
That “love” is dependence, and in that, you grow

*Sometimes, I’m stuck in my own world
Can you pull me out?
I wanna love and get yours too
Can you pull me out?

If I die, the world won’t stop
Spinning on its axis, no it cares not
If my body and soul pass away
What kind of memories will stay?
No, I don’t have much to give
I’m still just a kid
Just these testimonies of stupid things I did


The catalyst to growth is need
Leanin’ on something bigger than me
The catalyst to growth is need, that’s why I need my God, you see?
