Hospice is apparently a concept album. I just know that with “Two,” The Antlers put together a heartbreaking story of watching a loved one die of a cancer (I think; let me know if it means something else):
You had a new dream, it was more like a nightmare.
You were just a little kid, and they cut your hair,
then they stuck you in machines, you came so close to dying.
They should have listened, they thought that you were lying.
