"Green Man" is a track of the Type O Negative album October Rust, released in 1996. The intro part of the track contains sounds of a garbage man putting out garbage into the garbage truck, then the truck takes off. The title of this song, "Green Man", was inspired when someone called Peter Steele Green Man when he was wearing green jumpsuit when he worked as a garbage pickup. The song is not about his career as a garbage worker, but it is about Pete's love of nature having four seasons, rebirth, renaissance and spirits of the forest. The slowness and nature of this song may make some listeners feel natural, warm and inviting.

There is a fan-made music video for this song. The video shows the band members performing in all four seasons as well as background scenes and animations of each of those seasons such as flowers blooming in spring.

Lyrics Edit

Spring won't come, the need of strife
To struggle to be freed from hard ground

The evening mists that creep and crawl
Will drench in the dew and so drown

I'm the green man
The green man

Sol in prime sweet summertime
Cast shadows of doubt on my face

A midday sun, it's caustic hues
Refracting within the still lake

I'm the green man
The green man

Autumn in her flaming dress
Of orange, brown, gold fallen leaves

My mistress of the frigid night
I worship pray to on my knees

Winter's breath of filthy snow
Befrosted paths to the unknown
Have my lips turned true purple

Life is coming to an end
So says me, me wiccan friend
Nature coming full circle

[Incomprehensible]

Winter's breath of filthy snow
Befrosted paths to the unknown
Have my lips turned true purple

Life is coming to an end
So says me, me wiccan friend
Nature coming full circle

I'm the green man
The green man

I'm the green man
The green man

[Incomprehensible]
