Oh sister
You're not wrong, you're wrong-handed
Sister
Running back on the path from the sun
Sister
Everyone thinks you're off the radar
I know the reinvention has just begun

Spin the end into a start my little faint of heart
Come on
In the dark to a day we never knew exists
Come on

Sister
We're not strong, we're empty-handed
Sister
Terrified by the other lies
Sister
Nobody knows what you are made of
But I know you get to move on and survive

Spin the end into a start my little faint of heart
Come on
In the dark into a day we never knew exists
Come on

Oh sister
Come on
Oh sister
Come on

    Song Meaningi've listened to this song about 50 times trying to get the lyrics correct, so if anyone thinks i need to make any changes just let me know.

    i think this song is an ode to the ultimate "sister," mother nature (or perhaps humanity as a whole, using the feminine "sister" as representative of society as a whole) we're destroying her day by day, but she's a resilient entity and won't give up without a fight. just how many of us (including the members of young galaxy, obviously) feel.

    i think the lines "in the end into a start where there is major cost" and "in the end into a dream/day [which one?] we never knew exists" mean that yes, the collapse of our current structure will signify an "end" or a "dark" place, but only through destruction can we reconstruct to a hopefully brighter place.

    General CommentI'm not sure if I have a different version of the song, but these lyrics are totally wrong.

    How I hear them:
    Oh sister
    You're not wrong, you're wrong-handed
    Sister
    Running back on the path from the sun
    Sister
    Everyone thinks you're off the rail
    I know your reinvention has just begun

    Spin the end into a start my little faint of heart
    Come on
    Spin the dark into a dream, we're never who we seem
    Come on

    Sister
    They're not strong, they're empty-handed
    Sister
    Terrified by their own [not sure]
    Sister
    Nobody knows what you are made of
    But I know that you can't do more than survive

    Spin the end into a start my little faint of heart
    Come on
    Spin the dark into a dream, we're never who we seem
    Come on

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Oh sister
    Come on
    Oh sister
    Come on

    General CommentIf you had the album. You would be able to look at it on the inside and see all the lyrics.

    Spin the end into a start my little faint of heart.
