"Alice's House" as written by and Richard/butler Butler....
In the house where Alice lives
(Alice's)
it's a mess of souvenirs
let to remind you telling the time
?
?
people say it's cold outside
you disagree, she's telling me...
(CHORUS)
Come and spend the day at Alice's House
pass some time away at Alice's House
write a note saying "Please don't go, please don't go"
In the
without a key
the butler is serving tea
wearing a shirt without any sleeves
(CHORUS)
in the bedroom down the hall
your secret sleeps
why don't you stay?
In the house where Alice lives
(Alice's)
It's a mess of souvenirs
let to remind you telling the time
(CHORUS)
Alice's house

    General CommentThis is all I could find....

    Butler's explanation: "'Alice's House' is an asylum, and it's just a song basically about madness. Where it says, 'in the softest room,' you can take that as a padded cell, and you sing without a key.' Well, I always associate people who are insane as singing way out of tune, plus, you're in a room without a key. 'The butler is serving tea' is just sort of a wild image, and wearing a shirt without any sleeves' is simply a straitjacket. It works on illusions like that."

    So, I guess it is about a psycho-ward or something like that.... creepy
