"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 OpinionBon Iver is fronted by Justin Vernon, a proud Wisconsinite. La Grange refers to a city in Walworth County, WI, about 4 hours from where Justin grew up. In the dedication of Bon Iver, the album that "Hinnom, Tx" is from, he writes a thank you to "Lucinda Williams for giving us the thickest line in music . . . 'I finally did it baby, I got out of La Grange.'" I think this line refers to the deep longing to get out of small-town Wisconsin and make something of yourself (I should know - I grew up in Walworth County).
