01. Rays On Pinion

Music by Baroness
Lyrics by John Dyer Baizley
Save your soul
It's bright with holes
Rays upon pinion
Lay me down

Our trust lies in mighty wing
As we thrust ourselves into the drink
Pitched boats sail and ploughmen toil
To drift on and work the soil

Stow your gaze
Away these waves
Stain reflection
May we drown

This is our last goodbye
This is our final cry
This separation of bird and bone
Is an introduction to tide and lung

We've resigned ourselves to soar home
Despite these wayward rays


02. The Birthing

Music by Baroness
Lyrics by John Dyer Baizley
Holy rake
You piss and shake

Comely waif
Your knees abraid

Turn your back on the birthing
It's sweet again
Keep it tucked in your eyes
Wet and alive
Seaweed inside

Holy rake
Comely waif
Birthed blisters
Rake


03. Isak

Music by Baroness
Lyrics by John Dyer Baizley
Isak
Hands in the gound
Buried traces of sound scream

Hem in the seed
Water to salt
Salt into rain

Isak
Tender the swine
Carry the hare and the barrow home


04. Wailing Wintry Wind

Music by Baroness
Lyrics by John Dyer Baizley
See inside
'Till you find me blindly
Slice the rind
'Till you see me bleeding
Thousand blades
Of an unbeliever
Sift the sand
Hear the wail of winter winds


05. Cockroach En Fleur

Music by Baroness
Instrumental


06. Wanderlust

Music by Baroness
Lyrics by John Dyer Baizley
Perambulation
Wading
Milk the keel through tidal slough at dawn
On and on
Grating and lapping at the swollen stinking skin
Imitation
Mating muscles cut through cords
Through mountain's own
On and on
Sated but engorged on mother's milk and fed as twins
Bold defecation
Raise the bow and aim for crimson dawn


07. Aleph

Music by Baroness
Instrumental


08. Teeth Of A Cogwheel

Music by Baroness
Instrumental


09. O'Appalachia

Music by Baroness
Lyrics by John Dyer Baizley
Raise your voices
This is where the good times went from me
Breathe in choruses
This is where the waning sated me
Stand in valleys
This is where the rivers coursed my veins
Line the shoreline
This is where my blood will ebb away
