"Little Sister" as written by and Alexander Henry Foster....
Dressed with invisible pearls and lighted colors
She's a broken flower in a huge wounded body
Traveling for years to find some place to stay
She loses herself in someone else's, someone else's tragedy

Spinning round like the gypsy fallen queen
Schizophrenic shining secretly
(Waiting sometimes)
For the man to gently say
(Waiting sometimes)
How wonderful she used to be

Tell me, little sister, is it warm and safe in there?
Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry
Any words to fill the blanks, speak out, little sister
(Any words to fill the blanks, speak out little sister)
Are you waiting for me somewhere deep inside?
(Are you waiting deep inside?)

Standing on the corner she's trying sometimes
To touch my world, to reach my side of the wire
Walking the whole universe to cross the line

Spinning round like the gypsy fallen queen
Schizophrenic shining secretly
(Crying sometimes)
For the man who used to say
(Crying sometimes)
How wonderful she used to be

Tell me, little sister, is it warm and safe in there?
Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry
Any words to fill the blanks, speak out, little sister
(Any words to fill the blanks, speak out, little sister)
Are you waiting for me somewhere deep inside?
(Are you waiting deep inside?)

Carousel has slowly stopped spinning around
(Spinning around)
Alice won't be back this time, Wonderland's fading
As she closes the ride and drops the bottle down
Wonderland's fading, Wonderland's fading

Tell me, little sister, is it warm and safe in there?
Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry
Tell me, little sister, is it warm and safe in there?
(Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry)
Your face is like winter and your eyes seem so dry
(Any words to fill the blanks)
Speak out little sister
(Speak out little sister)
Are you waiting for me somewhere deep inside
(Are you waiting deep inside)
Are you waiting

    Song MeaningSounds to me like the song is about suicide. The girl obviously died as implied by lines like "your face is like winter and you eyes seem so dry." "Wonderland's fading" also seems to be saying the world is fading around her as if drifting off to sleep. "A man to gently say how wonderful she used to be" sounds like a eulogy. I guess it never specifies suicide, I just assumed from the mental illness references that she did.
