AM: Scratch vox for Sign of the Cross. Organ countermelody take (just to have in place). Baby toy shaker throughout (three takes for coverage).

PM: Basic drum machine. Sounds way grittier and more fun than I would have expected. Was going to record the crystalline piano part, but in light of the new beat, made it an Alien Chime (extreme warbly chorus applied to very high vibraphone). New scratch vox. Honing the vibe. I love the confluence of X-Files mystery music palette with the mystery of the (old hat, boring ol') spiritual.

The sign of the cross

And time is stopped

May God's mercy

On me, a sinner, fall

It's time for a loss

The scales fall

We're in his infinite wisdom

Inside of a loss

The scales, the earthly, fall...
