Lyrics:
Green Light [Version (a)]:

I kneel before the green light
Of her singing crayon eyes
And then I kiss her stomach
And then I realize
Her light is the night
I'm not blind
I believe in you
I see a green light

I kneel before the green light
Of her singing crayon eyes
And then I kiss her stomach
And then I realize
Her light is the night
I'm not blind
I believe in you
I see a green light

I see a green light
 
The Song:

Beck covered Sonic Youth's "Green Light" for a limited 7" record, which will also include Sonic Youth's cover of "Pay No Mind."

Beck a few months before this was announced covered SY's "Star Power in concert once. "Star Power" and "Green Light" are both on Sonic Youth's album, EVOL. Reportedly in fact Beck has covered the entirety of EVOL for some sort of Sonic Youth project.

The original Sonic Youth version is a fairly typical SY track, based around a churning electric guitar riff, which builds and builds into a climax of guitars. Beck deconstructs that though, turning it into a hypnotic acoustic guitar piece.
