"Hinnom, TX" as written by and Justin Vernon....
(Fall in
Fall out
Fall along)

In the first of light
Past the Noachide
Bodies wrapped in white

Stranded every pain
Baby, pasts are slain
'I got outta La Grange''

In Hinnom

All this time
With your heart in mind
Didn't you edit

In Hinnom

Go, the least
And the precious feast
The in-vetted

Sand it starts to steal
Dirt and ice imbed in cheeks
In the potter's field

Solar peace
Well it swirls and sweeps
You just set it

Strangers scattering
Nether passage in the wind
Off pennant tension ring

Armor, down
On the wettest ground
Not to vet it

    My InterpretationIn Hinnom in Israel there is a place where people where sacrificed and buried. It also means land without laws (hell).

    I think the author mixes a man experience with women with this place. At the beginning he talks about this man having sex with someone, and without finding it enough he goes to La Grange (a prostitutes place in a ZZ top song).

    I like the part that says "all this time, with your heart in mind, did you edit?" as he is asking him if he looked after his heart by doing this.

    He has lost his faith in love that he vets them (a check up before buying a horse) and by doing this he finds satisfaction (the in-vetted). In Hinnom there is potter's land and wet land. The man vets potter's land to find dirt mixed with ice in cheek (unappealing women) but at the end he find the wettest land and the voice tells him "not to vet it" as if he wont find anything horrible that would satisfy him (dead corpses). Land or earth is female in many cultures.
    Well, is my interpretation
