Take me away from the ocean, already gone away
I'm already gone

Take me up north to the blue grass, horse meat and pharmacies
I'm already gone

Board up the house
Hide your boys and girls
Board up the house
Hide your boys and girls

We wanted the best for our sweet little September castaway
I'm already gone

She's floating in acetone, covered in bruises and common colds
I'm already gone

Board up the house
Hide your boys and girls
Board up the house
Hide your boys and girls

Board up the house
Board up the house
Board up the house
Board up the house
Board up

Hide your boys...
Hide your girls...
Hide your...

    My InterpretationSo I think that I got the chorus. Baroness' lyrics are always cryptic and we'll probably never get what modt of them mean, but this double record - specially Green - is a lot more literal than the others, and I'm almost sure there's a message here.

    So let's get to the chorus, "Board up the house/hide your boys and girls".
    Now why do we board up houses? In most cases, in the USA, is to reduce damage caused by hurricanes. When the author tells us to board up the house, he means that something is coming, something big.

    So let's not get too literal, this isn't some apocalyptic prophecy, no, I like to interpretate this in a more intellectual level. So back in early 2012 (BOY it's been 5 years o m g), things were already pretty boiled in the field of the ideology, they were clashing amongst themselves, the debates were getting more and more serious, and we knew it was just a matter of time ubtil things get, well, just like theuly are today: ideologic chaos.

    Now, wait! This isn't a bad thing, actually this is very beneficial, so let's analyze today's "field of ideas". The era of "having deeps thoughts and expressing them os for nerds" era is just gone, everyone is looking to today's society, and to themselves, way more seriously, and people are developing a way more well aware mind than ever before, but with one cost: our innocence, and our capability of understanding and compassion, such as of a child's. All these debates and the heat turned us all into a bit cynical and individualist.

    So, finally, to the chorus.
    "Bpard up the house/hide your boys amd girls". It is a warning to the people who can't accept these changes: Protect your mind, and protect your innocence for what is about to come, a hurricane of new ideas and discussion.
    Too bad for people who just heard this song now that it's just too late now, haha.
