i wrote a song for your sister
i ??? in drugs
i wrote a song for your sister
she folded it fourteen times up
your father felt satan in hilton
and hte lord sucked the bad from his bones
and no one will touch you or feel you
closer than ever before
raise up and be strong
oh, be calm
oh, be strong
oh my god
be strong

i know your dad left your mother
before you can probably recall
but i hear the strength in your vocals
deciding that you can move on
and i picked you up dead in the forest
with your shirt ???? to your arms
your dad pinned you to walls in the kitchen
and he pinned you to walls in your heart

so raise up
and be calm
oh, be calm
oh, be strong
oh my god damn
be strong

so i'll write one more song for this cabin
with cement in the rocks to stand firm
i'll write one more song for my cousin
about all the drugs in her arm
and i hide a dream of our families?
not as bad as a dream of her ??
??we stood like our family
???never crying??
so i wrote a song for your jesus
you say if i'm lucky i'll call him mine too
and i sat there just ??? i'm weeping??
i believe in is finally through?
so i write a song for my jesus
if i'm lucky we can call him yours too
he looked at me just like his family
saying "andy, we're not through til we're through"

so shut up
and be calm
i am strong
oh, be calm
i am strong
just be calm
strong
just be calm
just be calm
just be calm

    General CommentI'm almost positive the second line is "Her stomach pumped charcoal and drugs". It implies a drug overdose (which is referenced later in the song as well), as charcoal is used to save someone from an overdose on certain types of drugs.
