    The song is a prediction of what will happen in the next financial depression. The "Grey Men" are suiciding from their stock broker offices on the fourteenth floor at the same time covering their financial tracks by striking out evidence in their black books. The singer has realised that distancing himself from these people will enable him to survive,

    I think the song refers to depressions of various kinds: economic ("catch the grey
    men, etc."), psychological, and the unraveling of a mind ("strike the big red words from my little black book"/)physical
    ("lay down in a hole/until I satisfy my soul"). And because the song has such a downbeat subject matter, and it's an SD song,
    it must be an uptempo one!
