"Sister Psychic" as written by and Gregory D./harwell Camp....
[Chorus:]

Sister Psychic won't you tell me does it ever get better
Can you really see the future or just predict the weather
Are we in our finest hour or headed for disaster
Use your super powers and rescue me

We were there at the start we've got Polaroids to prove it
Skateboards and scars and embarrassing home movies
But if you really want to see where it's all going
Switch on your TV she's all telling, all knowing
She knows everything

Can you help us find the ones on the missing posters
Is my baby being true, am I doing what I'm supposed to
Could you help me find my keys or better yet life's meaning
Are those tarot or dialogue cards that you're reading
Come on
Tell me everything

Sister, why would I tell you my deepest, dark secrets
So you could take my diary and rip it all to pieces
Just $6.95 for the very fist minute
I think you've won the lottery that's my prediction
You know everything

    My InterpretationI think this song is actually more about a bad relationship where the singer thinks his girlfriend is cheating on him than about Ms. Cleo. I believe it just uses Ms. Cleo as a theme.

    "Sister Psychic won't you tell me does it ever get better
    Can you really see the future or just predict the weather"

    This part fits the Ms. Cleo theme, of course, and sets the tone for the rest of the song.

    "Are we in our finest hour or headed for disaster
    Use your super powers and rescue me"

    This does, too, obviously, but instead of thinking the first line is something about a literal disaster, I think it's about his relationship.

    "We were there at the start we've got Polaroids to prove it
    Skateboards and scars and embarrassing home movies"

    Him and his girlfriend have pictures of their first time meeting, and perhaps they met at a skate park where neither of them knew how to skate, hence the scars and embarrassing movies.

    "But if you really wanna see where it's all goin'
    Switch on your T.V. she's all tellin' all known'
    She knows everything"

    Perhaps the singer decides to call Ms. Cleo or another phone psychic to see if he can fix his relationship.

    "Can you help us find the ones on the missing posters
    Is my baby being true, am I doin' what I'm supposed to"

    The singer is the one who is lost, in his relationship. He thinks his girlfriend is cheating on him (as expressed in the second line), and isn't sure if it's because of what he's doing.

    "Could you help me find my keys or better yet lifes meaning
    Are those tarot or dialogue cards that you're reading
    C'mon tell me everything"

    The singer possibly finds out that the phone pyschics are just a scam. They aren't predicting the future, and they can't answer anything simple, even "where are my keys". They are just reading dialogue, not tarot.

    "Sister why would I tell you my deepest dark secrets
    So you could take my diary and rip it all to pieces"

    The singer and his girlfriend get into an arguement - now he feels there is no point telling her all of the secrets in his life, because she will just make fun of him or use them against him.

    "Just $6.95 for the very first minute
    I think you've won the lottery that's my prediction"

    Perhaps the character divorces his wife/girlfriend, and she wins a lot of money in the court proceedings? Or maybe it's just another shot at Ms. Cleo for giggles, I'm not sure on this one.





    Either way, this is just my take on the song. :)
