Up close you see the greed and abuse
From a distance all you can see is the green and the blue

from Homeboy Sandman – Strange Planet Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Up close, to the planet you can see the greed of a world controlled by imperialist Capitalists (greed) and the abuse of leaders onto their subjects as well as everyday people onto each other. From far away (like a snapshot from space) the two main colours of the Earth are green (the land) and blue (the oceans, lakes and rivers.)
