You lead the way I'll follow... You lead the way I'll follow... What was the plan here? I can't seem to stop Pissing and spitting from bottom to top Picking up viscera, tendons and broken remains Did you find another way? Was it my turn, or yours, to say? "Did you find another way?" Take my bones away I'll find them every day I took your advice and the requisite pills And the forbidden pies from a white windowsill Swallowing caveats, Baphomet's breath and migraines Did I tell you "don’t come home"? Why was your mouth beginning to foam? Did I tell you "don't come home"? Take my bones away I'll find them every day Take my bones away Take my bones away Take my bones away Take my bones away Take my bones away Take my bones away

MARCH TO THE SEA There was an anchor There was a silver-sweet refrain You tucked your fingers in between my troubled bones And what you did next was second-to-none You really let us down You tied yourself up And jumped in the sea Never to come home Valium You left me all alone Tell me when I will be whole again There was a whisper Once there were heralds and parades You sang your secrets through the tolling of the tide The fugitive rooms, the amateur tombs The silence and cries The quickening beat Your march to the sea Never to return Sweet morphine You’ve taken all of me Let me know When you will let me go Heroin Where did you take my friend? Tell me why Those ropes are hanging high Valium You left me all alone
4.
LITTLE THINGS Cry your eyes out A lesson left unlearned I wish I was airborne Then I could watch it turn They’ve taken everything Hung us out to dry They’ve taken every thing Playing enemy This is thought control You’re a greasy little thing You’ll scream before you sing And you make a lot of noise You lied about everything You greasy little thing I got with the program I tried to fall in line I wish I was drowning Then I could watch you burn They’ve taken everything Hung us out to dry They’ve taken every thing Now you’re. . . You’re a sneaky little thing You’ll scream before you sing And you make a lot of noise You lied about everything You sneaky little thing When the tide rolls in When the trapdoor starts to swing When the swans have sung I’ll be myself again

Twinkler 03:16
TWINKLER Though I stand in mire I will speak distant fire Though I’m laid to ground I will walk through age and sound Though I stand in mire I will speak distant fire Though I’m laid to ground I will walk through age and sound

Cocainium 05:08
COCAINIUM Seven branches on my window Waiting for the sun to come around Take this on an empty stomach Waiting for the spring to come around Save yourself By the way Never ride alone Take me down easy I can’t stand the sight or the smell It’s getting harder and harder and harder and harder to tell Tell me when the blood stops flowing Let it rest, it’s run into the ground Just in case the dogs are feeding Shut the door so they won’t hear the sound Save yourself By the way Never ride alone Show me no quarter I can’t stand the sight or the smell It’s getting harder and harder and harder and harder to tell Put me to pasture I can’t stand the sight or the smell It’s getting harder and harder and harder and harder to tell

BACK WHERE I BELONG Tell me now. . . Who’s in charge here? I thought help was on the way It took so many years to get out of here Now I’m back where I belong Now I’m back where I belong Next to you Stuck to you Here’s the rub. . . There’s no difference Between poison and the cure When the one tastes so great it’s a crying shame That I’m back where I belong Now I’m back where I belong Next to you Stuck with you Say goodnight to your mother Say a prayer for your father Wake me when the thunderclouds are rolling in Take me to a hazy Sunday morning I heard your eyes and I touched your tongue When we were kids we never felt so young Take me to a hazy Sunday morning I heard your eyes and I touched your tongue When we were kids we never felt so young Take me to a hazy Sunday morning

Sea Lungs 03:21
SEA LUNGS I can’t breathe Nor can I see the sun It’s so cold in here Where did I go so wrong? All these days I’ve sail’d cross these wicked seas And I have petitioned the deep For water to keep me clean When my ship comes in I’ll find a way to breathe again “Breathe in deep Let the sea fill your lungs Its better to brace for death Than die for a promised land” “Why so sad? Your tears are no match for mine I am eternal sea And you are a drowning man” When my ship comes in I’ll find a way to breathe again When my ship comes in I’ll find a way to breathe again When my ship comes in I’ll find a way to breathe again

Eula 06:47
EULA Settle down This won’t last long I’ve been out And I want back in So why not completely fade away When my bones begin to break And my head begins to shake It’s my own blood When my house becomes a cage And the neighbours turn away It’s my own blood Settle down This won’t last long I’ve been out And I want back in So why not completely fade away “Where the butcher’s hand is home” Laughs the blade above the throne “It’s my own blood” “Oh, this apple makes me sick” Cries the pig upon his stick “It’s my own blood” And I can’t forget the taste Can’t forget the taste of my own tongue And I can’t forget the taste Can’t forget the taste of my own tongue And If I had a heart I’d waste it on you But it’s all together far too long Since I took you down Settle down This won’t last long I’ve been out And I want back in So why not completely fade away When we’ve licked all of the lips And the salt-stained fingertips It’s our own blood When our lambs and lions made Debts no righteous man can pay It’s our own blood And I can’t forget the taste Can’t forget the taste of my own tongue And I can’t forget the taste Can’t forget the taste of my own tongue

BOARD UP THE HOUSE Take me away from the ocean, I’ve 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 and. . . Hide your girls and. . . Hide your. . .

MTNS. (THE CROWN & ANCHOR) You’re never awake But you don’t seem to sleep at all Those stolen flowers inside your guts Will take you away Steady the hand that lays the child to bed Barbitals and decay The crown and anchor You’ll curse at the sky Three words for which the boys have no names How many beasts in the night To take you away What quivers and shakes? What fills your stomach and clogs your veins? Whose claws do scratch at your wooden limbs? And tear you away Steady the hand that lays the dogs to rest Barbitals and decay The crown and anchor We will never sleep We will never wake We will drift away We will never sleep We will never wake We will drift away
13.
Foolsong 02:57
FOOLSONG That fool who digs his own grave “I’m still trying to find my way out! But if it’s the long way I’ll sleep in this bed I’ve made.” The kids have fallen on blades It’s too late to figure out It’s too late for babies to beg for their beds It’s too late to ignore the storm up ahead It’s too dark to see my way out Now all I can do about anything wrong Is dig further down Further down When we finally awake We’ll burn our bodies on stakes A tower of ashes and sawdust will lie Where our castles were made
14.
Collapse 03:51
COLLAPSE We are all soured milk When we look in the mirror, we collapse When our time has come When our finger’s on the trigger, we collapse Arms are flailing Swirling like the poison in the sink Like the Southern Belle Playing songs of horror Like teeth amongst the grass Like the bullet shell Whistle and I’ll hum Watch the good folks run We are all rotten fruit When the pipeline starts to flowing, we collapse When our time has come When the courtyard needs a lynching, we collapse Arms are failing The devil’s in the eye of every man Water and the well A Baptist and a baby Were rolling in the weeds Keep her spirit well The tarpit daughter’s father Will lay her out to dry
15.
Psalms Alive 04:08
PSALMS ALIVE I am the nail that you can’t strike I am the spear that will run you through And when the shots were falling we were sound asleep And you filled your palms with dirty bombs Instead of hand-grenades I am teeth which cannot bite I’ll tear your garden up by the roots And when the shots were falling we were sound asleep And you filled your palms with dirty bombs Instead of hand-grenades Hear the seven bell tolls Ringing loud for you Coroners and vultures Cry out, “Gloria!” All across the valley Onward towards the sun The two-bit prophet sways and Pulls a price from everyone Feel the heavy hoof-beats Pound across the land The sin of our forefathers Lies within our clutching hands Watch the planes pass over Hear its call-to-arms The golden drunk of morning Made me straight my bended knee

THE LINE BETWEEN I turned my head up and the sky was empty I wasn’t looking for paradise And when I asked for comfort from the land of plenty I came to realize. . . You have taken this for granted Please don’t take it all away Feel the light of day. Feel it fade away Walk the line between the righteous and the wicked And tomorrow I’ll be gone. . . I thrust my hands in ‘til the nerves all went cold I tasted silver and I tasted gold And when the bandage lifted, our scars were newborn We still felt everything. . . I have taken this for granted Please don’t take it all away Feel the light of day. Feel it fade away Walk the line between the righteous and the wicked And tomorrow I’ll be gone. . . Feel the light of day. Feel it fade away Walk the line between the righteous and the wicked And tomorrow I’ll be gone. . . And tomorrow I’ll be gone. . .

about

Baroness' Yellow & Green finds a band that has developed into more than just giants of the metal underground, they are now fully formed hard rock titans. Fans of the band have come to expect nothing less than constant evolution from Baroness and that is precisely what the band has delivered, but in ways noone could have anticipated: the hooks are immediately seared into your brain, riffs that take just one listen to fully lodge themselves in your consciousness and vocals that are sung both heavily and beautifully. Some songs are more delicate than Baroness ever hinted to before while others are straight up arena rockers—yet all along Yellow & Green is unmistakably the Baroness that the world has come to love and look to for Record Of The Year quality rock and roll. It’s not hard to imagine any one of the 18 songs that fill out the Yellow & Green 2CD/2LP being rock radio anthems, and deservedly so. At no risk of hyperbole Baroness’ ‘Yellow & Green’ is on a very short list as one of the new millennium’s best rock records.
