"Her Name Is Alice" as written by Brent Smith and Eric Bass....
(If I had a world of my own, everything will be nonsense)
(Nothing will be what it is, because everything will be what it isn't)

I invite you to a world where there is no such thing as time
And every creature lens themselves to change your state of mind
And the girl that chase the rabbit drank the wine and took the pill
Has locked herself in limbo to see how it truly feels

To stand outside your virtue
No one can ever hurt you
Or so they say

Her name is Alice (Alice)
She crawls into the window
Shaped in shadows
Alice (Alice)
And even though she is dreaming, she knows

Sometimes the curiosity can kill the soul but leave the pain
And every ounce of innocence is left inside her brain
And through the looking glass we see she's thankfully returned
But now off with her head I fear is everyone's concern

You see there's no real ending
It's only the beginning
Come out and play

Her name is Alice (Alice)
She crawls into to the window
Shapes in shadows
Alice (Alice)
And even though she is dreaming
She's a locked for meaning for you
This kingdom good riddance good freedom and innocence
Has brought this whole thing down

Her name is Alice (Alice)
She crawls into to the window
Shapes in shadows
Alice (Alice)
And even though she is dreaming
She's a locked for meaning

She's a locked for meaning for you

(In contrary wise, what it is it wouldn't be)
(And what it wouldn't be it would)
(You see?)

    General Commentwell the meaning is pretty obvious, as it goes along with the new Alice in Wonderland movie. but i think that if you take some lines away from it, it could have a very deep meaning. like, "the girl who drank the wine and took the pill, has locked herself in limbo to see how it truely feels, to stand outside your virtue, so one can ever hurt you, or so they say..." and i feel like it's about someone who drinks and does drugs to numb themselves from the pain of everything, only to find that it's only a temporary fix. hence the, "or so they say.." and then when they say, "Sometimes the curiosity can kill the soul but leave the pain and every ounce of innocence that's left inside her brain." i feel like it's about someone who wants to know so much more about life than they can really handle, and it ends up hurting them and stealing away their innocence.
    maybe i'm reading too much into it, but i just wanted to put a different spin on it. oh well.

    Lyric CorrectionI think lyrics are:


    Her name is Alice (Alice)
    She crawls into to the window
    Through Shapes and shadows
    Alice (Alice)
    And even though she's dreaming
    Shes unlocked the meaning (/for you)

    General CommentThe background part is "Red knights, white knights, marching into the fight. Drink me, shrink me, fill me to sink me." as far as I can tell.
    By the way, the end isn't "in contrary was," it's "contrariwise."

    General CommentI was sitting in my room acting like a fucktard and thought "WHAT IF I'M KURT COBAIN???"
    ...
    "HER NAME IS FRAANCEEEEEEEEES!!!" And of course "Fra" is too soft of a sound so I implimented "Al" and got "No one else has a fucking soul". Alice is the female God of war--I think she has something to do with convealing, or the convoludence of "purity" because of the progression of time. A-lice ? "Yeah, Parker, you're right!" ":(" (Kind of like a-base--to disregard a start? a means "to not" [LOL Royals!]--to pick lice--is a "monkey" thing.)
    Rabbits reproduce like crazy. "She crawls into the window, through shapes in shadows"--"No she didn't..."
    "What?"
    A lot of my songs are hymnal, almost--it works like anthropology. It's like applying quantum physics to Universal Theory? I've kept a notebook since I was 14-16 (And played guitar since I was 12), so when I write, I take whatever feeling I have and express it through a story, then "cut" it to apply to a song (--if something feels "movie"-ish, it's because I think it's funny, or I thought it [would] fit better... I'm "still" working _with my voice_, and how that works is when you sing, or hear singing you start working the muscles in your throat towards that... My first guitar was (is) a Takamine--it's ENORMOUS, and the sound resonates.. so that's too much, so I became double-jointed and understand a lot more than most people would. If you listen to Enter Shikari, if Brent tries to sing like me it sounds BAD, the base note is on a flat--his entire voice would change, or he'd have to become double-jointed (tilt your head to one side!)... the result is sort of muffled [it bounces bad]--I think there are 2-3 things in your throat, and if the air escapes too unevenly pitch suffers. Bass/Tone/"Grit").
    And "Skies" was written in the same week (Or the same period of prolonged activity), if you listen to it from far away it sounds grrrrreaaaaaaaat. "Trancecore"--that's why "you" (collectively) want to keep hearing the songs.

    MemoryYou could wear this so much more snugly than Carroll's heroine.
    Not again--no thanks.
    It's not a plate of Brussels sprouts, you know.
    No? Pardon--I've already had my serving of "and through the looking glass we see she's painfully returned," so if you don't mind, I'll shift strategy.
    And if we do mind?
    That's me smiling ....
    Think you were the inspiration?
    I didn't chase the rabbit. The rabbit chased me. Doesn't matter. I like the song. Also like the Almost Alice cd.
