O' Sister, what's wrong with your mind?
You used to be so strong and stable.
My sister, what made you fall from grace?
I'm sorry that I was not there to catch you.
What have the demons done?
What have the demons done?
With the luminous light that once shined from your eyes?
What makes you feel so alone?
Was it the whispering ghosts that you feared the most?
But the blackness in your heart it won't last forever.
I know it's tearing you apart, but it's a storm you can weather.

O' Sister, those lines etched in your hands.
They're hardened and rough like a road map of sorrow.
My Sister, there is a sadness on your face.
You're like a motherless child who's longing for comfort.
What's running through your veins?
That's causing you such pain.
Does it have something to do with the pills they gave to you?
What is eating at your soul?
Was it the whispering ghosts that left you out in the cold?
But the blackness in your heart won't last forever.

I know it's tearing you apart, but it's a storm you can weather.
(Oooh, oooh, Oooooh, Ooooh)

O' Sister, . . .
My sister . . .
O' sister . . .
My sister . . .

    General CommentI think that is about someone on drugs or in a big problem that cloud it mind, and the message is After the storm always the sun come out.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about depression. Lines like "But the blackness in your heart it won't last forever" or "That's causing you such pain. Does it have something to do with the pills they gave to you?" are actually talking about a person who is lost and sad, and they gave him/her pills to recover.
    My psychologist diagnosed me with depression, and I feel identified with this song.
    I mean... "O' Sister, what's wrong with your mind?" This song is clearly about depression.
