"Sister of Charity" as written by - Bazie, - Bazie, - Jyrki 69, Johnny Lee Michaels, Johnny Lee Michaels and Kris Kylven....
A new day for a mission
Another sunrise in your heart

Gimme tears of the wrong
The hate of convicts
The glamous of the damned
Rule of Benedict

I've never seen the dawn like this before
Tears on the night turn to diamonds on your eyes
In the face of the world's ugliness
Sister of charity
Remains a mystery

Love shines over aggression
Another wound heals in your heart

Gimme fears of the strong
The warfare politics
The decay of the west
Rule of Benedict

I've never seen the dawn like this before
Tears on the night turn to diamonds on your eyes
In the face of the world's ugliness
Sister of charity
Remains a mystery

    General CommentI really like this song because I learned that I had a great aunt that was a sister of charity (she died when I was 14). She still has this sort of impact on me. Any that don't know what a sister of charity is--its a nun thats in a sorta of convent but it more of a social group its hard to explain. I wonder if Jyrik knew a sister of charity...

    General Commentthis song means alott to me cus it lets me realise that by finding god (all thoe i dont believe in any) could let a person feel so good and totally turn his/her life around, and yet they dont even know the entire meaning of this faith. the lines that led me to believe this as what this song was about are

    " A new day for a mission
    Another sunrise in your heart" - which lets me believe that he feels that when he wakes up he is ready to devote his life to this beinng that he believes in and feels as thoe he is waking up to the love (sunrise in your heart) of this allmighty.

    "I've never seen the dawn like this before
    Tears on the night turn to diamonds on your eyes
    In the face of the world's ugliness
    Sister of charity
    Remains a mystery " - which i think means that since he started to believe in this allmighty being his out look in even the simplest things became so beautifull that it overwhelmed him and made him realise that everything is beautifull (as i might say death) in its own way.

    General CommentI think it's "Diamonds in your eyes" not "on your eyes". Other than that, this song is awesome to listen to.

    General CommentWell, it obviously has references to Christianity...although I always felt it was more about losing God than finding God. The melody is dark... and the lyrics--the ones that express more joy--seem sarcastic, in a way. The "tears of the night turn to diamonds" represent to me how sadness overwhelms one when you feel God has left you, but then the cold apathy that comes when you begin to think that there might not even be a God. And how the "Sister of Charity remain[ed] a mystery"...the Sister of Charity never found her way into the life of the person who had lost God. Hell, it could even be about a Sister losing her faith, and wondering why she even became a nun in the fist place. Either way...I think that this song is about losing your faith in God.

    General Commentthe way i see it is a Sister of Charity ("social nun") just wakes up for a new day. she cries every night because she sees the pain and misery every day. she wishes she can take the pain and sin away from the world. wakes up to another dawn that is painfully different. i dont know about how she keeps her faith at all... "Sister of Charity remains a mystery". just to throw it out there, some cultures of "nuns" follow the Rule of Benedict. im guessing it's always going to be part of her life to follow the rules that St. Benedict wrote and she cannot do a thing about it (which is why she cries).

    this is how i see it. correct me if im wrong.
