"Alice Said" as written by and Conner/lanegan....
Alice said to come on in now it's time for bed
The hour's Quite late I need a nap to clear my head
And later, down, the pillow softly calls to me

I've never sent down, bounced all around
Now I can't see
Blind, happily

Alice said have you forgotten what will be
Concealed in smiles that come too late now I can't see
The sun goes down, thoughts go astray
She might take my soul away

Don't close the shade
Until the twilight fades

Alice said to come on in now it's time for bead
The hour's Quite late I need a nap to clear my head
The sun goes down, thoughts go astray
She might take my soul away

Don't close the shade
Until the twilight fades

Don't close the shade
Until the twilight fades

Alice said

    General CommentI think this song is about trying to fight off addiction, and seeing your life slowly changing schedule to revolve around your addiction.

    General CommentFirst i just wanna say, like the other 20 people who wrote about these guys' song) these guy are amazing and didn't get the cretid they deserved. and they also remind me of The Door; mainly because of Makr lanegan's voice.

    Anyway i think this has somthing to do with drugs. Alice is a symbol for that drug. it's just a thought. this is a really cool song though, especially since Chris Cornell (lead singer Soundgarden & Audioslave) does some backup in the end. showing u these guys had respect from some of the other bands of the time.

    My InterpretationI agree with Tallbob that Alice could be a drug.
    I've only ever heard "Alice" used to refer to LSD, but the lyrics and Lanegan's known habits point to her being heroin.
