"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

    General CommentSeems to be about secrets of one's past - skeletons in the closet.

    Talks about "vetting" the process of checking out someone's background, knowing about their past.

    I think La Grange refers to town in Texas with a nearby whorehouse (on which the film "Best LIttle Whorehouse in Texas" is bassed).

    The one line that really sticks out to me is "pennant tension ring" because it sounds so much like "penitentiary" which fits in really well with "strangers scattering" "passage in the wind" and the whole concept of a dirty past and not being judged for it "armor down... not to vet it". "Pennant tension ring" is the official lyric, but I wouldn't put it past Justin to make a play on the sound of the word, rather than the meaning. Or not - maybe the whole things about a musical. Haha!
