"Sister" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Sister sister
Keep the fire inside
And your dogs won't die
And now it's all clear
It's all clear
You can see the child
Before it's born
Yeah it's all clear
It's all clear
You saw your little son's smile
Before it's shone
Sister
We'll climb
We'll climb 'til the dogs
Climb over us
We'll climb

We'll climb
We'll climb 'til the dogs
Climb over us
Sister
Why'd you come and turn all the lights
All out, out
I can't see no more
Now I reach out
Now I feel for
Now I reach out
Now I feel for
Now I reach out
Now I feel for
Now I reach out
Now I feel for

    General CommentI think this is just about a sister who's pregnant, and she can "see the child before it's born" and feel "your little son's smile"... like talking about the relationship a mother has with her unborn child. i think?

    General CommentI think his sister contemplated getting an abortion but he told her not to (keep the fire inside) and her relationship with her baby is growing. I'm assuming she shut him out at the end after he supported her. (why'd you come and turn all the lights
    all out, out
    i can't see no more)
