Story Behind the Song

About a mentally ill boy that I met while working on the psych ward. Some people made fun of him because he was so mentally ill. He had a green tint around his eyes. It looked like he hadn't slept in years. That's where the "emotions come in many shades of green" comes from. He would often get on the phone and act as if he was calling someone. The song is about him and how I felt sorry for him. I knew he would always be alone & isolated in the bizarre world that his mind created for him.

Lyrics

He stands alone in the hall
His mind is there, but his thoughts he cannot call
Locked i his world unlike you've ever seen
Emotions come in many shades of green

Well, he is there and he is alone
He is standing there by the phone
No one there to say you look nice today
Instead all they want to know is why you like to roam

Metal Boy I know that your world is sad
aYour mind is troubled and your life's been really bad
Locked in your world unlike we've ever seen
Emotions come in many shades of green

Well, he is there and he is alone
He is standing there by the phone
No one there to say you look nice today
Instead all they want to know is why you like to roam

You go home
You roan
You go home

Mental boy, find your way home
Mental boy, you're so alone
