"All My Colours" as written by and Ian Stephen/sergeant Mcculloch....
Flying
And I know I'm not coming down
You're trying
But you know you must soon go down
All my colors turn to clouds
All my colors turn to clouds

Zimbo

What d'you say
When your heart's in pieces?
How d'you play
Those cards in sequence?
That box you gave me burned nicely
That box you gave me burned nicely

Zimbo

Flying down
Flying down
All my colors turn to clouds

Hey, I've flown away
Hey, I'm blown away

    General CommentI have to admit that i heard the Nouvelle Vague (and Ian McCulloch) version before the E&TBM version.

    Ian sang on the Nouvelle Vague version so i assume he approves.

    I am convinced this is about cremation.

    I just wondered what "The box you gave me, burned nicely" was all about.

    My first thoughts were a box of gifts from an ex-lover that the lead character burns to try to scorch her out of his life.*

    Then i thought maybe the box is a coffin and he is referring to being cremated.

    This also fits with "all my colours turn to clouds"

    And ...

    Hey, I've flown away (his spirit)
    Hey, I'm blown away (the ashes after being scattered)



    * I tried this. It doesn't work. You might as well keep the stuff.
