"December" as written by and Wayne R. (not Static-x)/lacey Wells....
I still feel the cold
Of long past days
I knew my worth
Put in my place
It's no surprise
I realize
Some time before

December

Sun shines through haze
I put my thoughts
Toward future days
It's no surprise
I close my eyes
And close the door

Feeling so old
Years pass like days
Fastly changing
So many ways
My eyes perceive
Yes I believe
In nothing more

    General CommentThere is a girl sampled, sounds like a phone conversation or something
    between the lines 'And close the door' and 'Feeling so old'...

    just before the loudest thing she says, she goes 'please tell him that I am sorry' - then she says something like 'record my air sign' - which is blatantly wrong, but still :)

    General CommentI think the song is about the point in everyone's life when they get very old and realize they're close to death; they then think about how they lived their lives and question what they believe about the afterlife.

    The following is nothing but my own opinion on each line's meaning. Keep the word OPINION in mind.

    "I still feel the cold of long past days" = He realizes how much of his life is over, and how little time he has left. Realizing the grim, inevitable situation, he's overcome with a cold feeling.

    "i knew my worth; put in my place" = He realizes his powerlessness under Death and realizes he must accept it.

    "it's no surprise, I realized, some time before" = Now going back and thinking it over, he realizes that he should've seen it coming. He had thought about it before, but it never really hit him until now, as close as he is to death.

    "December sun shines through haze" = Now we know the time setting...it's December. The sun is Death coming for him; the sun is as inavoidable as Death. The haze is his cloudy, unsure thoughts about Death itself...what to expect from it.

    "i put my thoughts toward future days" = He switches his train of thought to the actual days he has left...how much time he may have, and how he will spend that time.

    "it's no surprise; I close my eyes, and close the door" = He closes his eyes for the last time, and as such, has closed the door of life; there's no turning back now.

    "Feeling so old, years pass like days." = As he closes his eyes, he realizes the situation he's in to the fullest and feels very old. As his life flashes before his eyes, the years pass as if they were only days. He realizes just how short life really is.

    "Fastly changing, so many ways; my eyes perceive" = Watching is life flash before his eyes, he sees himself changing physically and emotionally throughout the years.

    "Yes, I believe in nothing more" = He gives up any preconceptions of the afterlife that he's ever had and just takes Death as it comes, allowing whatever happens to happen...and he dies.

    General CommentSimilar to what Sess said only I think it applies a little sooner than close to death. I believe it's when you hit those early twenties and realize you aren't a kid anymore. You are an adult.

    The whole aging thing applied over this sound is funny to me because my birthday is in December. :P

    General CommentAmazing song really and the fact that he wrote it so early is just unbelievable. In this song he's talking his way till death. The whole life flow. It starts out with a few minutes of pure music vibes which resemble the life passing by. Then lyrics and then the hevier beat which now, again, resembles the time passing time. The beat is now harder and we can hear some woman talking. It doesn't actually matter what she's saying. I think the beat and the gibberish resemble the life events, relationships, hard times, life passing. Then again lyrics, which are now at the end of his life. Finally strong everlasting beat which means only one ting - slowly fading away. It's pure GENIOUS. I'm high.
