All my tears will dry away
All my tears will dry away
All my tears will dry away

Words don't bother me no more
Black money falling to the floor
Flags out on the balconies
Black money washing to the seas
Oh my mind
What happened to the time
December

All my house got blown away
All my house got blown away
All my house got blown away
Walls of glass and walls of stone
Got blown away

Stations in the neon light
Your body strange as dynamite
Killers underneath our skins
Black mirrors black hyacinths
Oh my eyes

What happened to the skies
December
December
December

    General CommentLike '#41', this song is meaningless on the surface but clearly conceals something profound. All I can think of is to do a point-by-point (much of which is obvious):
    "All my tears will dry away": this unhappiness will be over
    "Words don't bother me no more"
    "Black money" suggests ill-gotten gains to me, and "falling to the floor" release thereof.
    "Flags out on the balcony" probably symbolizes something in reality.
    "Oh my mind/ What happened to the time": what has changed?

    "All my house got blown away": Something bad.
    "Stations in the neon light": ?
    "Your body strange as dynamite": Powerful, inexplicable effects of sexuality.
    "Killers underneath our skins": The 'inner beast'?
    "Black mirrors, black hyacinths": Powerful imagery, but ?
    "Oh my eyes/ What happened to the skies": As above.

    Having gone through it like this, it actually doesn't sound like any other David Gray song I know of.
