"Sweet Cloud" as written by and Jamie/mosshart Hince....
She upset the weather
She upset my sweet cloud
Growing black
Thick and heavy

Strike me now gonna put me down
She upset my brother
She upset his sweetheart
I love him so I do not kill

I know no words to make it right
I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing

But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive
I know no words to fix my killing
But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive
Lost a lot of blood

Lost a lot of cool cool
Lost a lot of blood
Lost a lot of cool cool cool
She upset his morning

She upset his afternoon
I see no way
I see no right
The night calls it stays on the night

I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing
But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive

I know no words to fix my killing
But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive
Lost a lot of blood
Lost a lot of cool cool

Lost a lot of blood
Lost a lot of cool cool cool
Lost a lot of blood
Lost a lot of cool cool cool

Lost a lot of blood
Lost a lot of cool cool cool
I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing

I know no words to fix my killing
But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive
I know no words to fix my killing
But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive

I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing

I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing

    General CommentThat line's in At The Back Of The Shell too :)
    "See I've upset my brother.
    See I've upset his sweet heart.
    I love him so, in turn I kill.
    I know no words to make it right.
    I know no words to fix my killing.
    I know no words to fix my killing,
    but I'll do anything to bring my brother alive."
    Her brother and his girlfriend/wife/whatever break up so he kills himself, and she feels like it's her fault for some reason. That's my guess :)

    General CommentI do believe that the whole album No Wow is telling a story. In short, a girl is going out with a boy, but he pisses her off. After taking some drugs, she goes nuts and kills him.

    This song is her reaction post her murder.

    "See I've upset the weather.
    See I've upset my sweet cloud."

    This is basically an ironical way to say that she is upset, she was living in her "sweet cloud" and because of the boy (she doesn't to say it's because of her) her life is upside down.

    "I know no words to fix my killing." It's pretty self explinatatory.

    "but I'll do anything to bring my brother alive." Her brother finding out about what his sister did (kill her boyfriend) must have commited sucide or something, but I'm not really sure. She is upset and wants her bro to be back in any case.

    General CommentI didn't take it as literally...
    It seems more like, she doesn't really approve of whomever her boyfriend is dating and she upsets her, but only because of how much she loves her brother and wants the best for him and no one will ever be good enough for him in her eyes.
    She knows no way to fix her killing... she doesn't know how to start being nice to the girl and feel okay about their relationship, but she knows she needs to because he loves this girl.

    Now that I've read everyone else's I'm not sure, and maybe if you look at the whole album it's different but this is how I first interpreted the song.
