Lyrics:

Oh sister
Whats wrong with your mind
You used to be
So strong and stable
My sister
What made you fall from grace
Im sorry that I
Was not there to catch you
What have the demons done?
What have the demons done?
With the luminous light
That once shined from your eyes
What makes you feel so alone
Was it the whispering ghosts
That you feared the most

But the blackness in your heart
It wont, last forever
I know its tearing you apart
But its a storm you can weather

Oh sister
Those lines etched in your hands
Theyre hardened and rough
Like a roadmap of sorrow
My sister
There is a sadness on your face
Youre like a motherless child
Whos longing for comfort
Whats running through your veins?
Thats causing you such pain
Does it have something to do
With the pills, they gave, to you?
What is eating at your soul
Was it the whispering ghosts
That left you out in the cold

But the blackness in your heart
Wont, last forever
I know its tearing you apart
But its a storm you can weather

OOOs (x4)

Oh sister
My sister
Oh sister
My sister
