"Here Comes Alice" as written by and William Adam Reid James Reid....
Here she comes walking down the street
She's got something you would love to meet
It's her heart and her heart is black
Think of ice cream sliding into a crack

The heat sticks to summer's heavy sweat
Hang around it'll get hotter yet
You got the shakes and it's goin' get worse
Don't you know it's all a part of the curse

She's got the hit that takes you into space
Suck mud and make a deal for that taste
You got nothing but you're riding on a star
You couldn't guess that she could take you that far

Some things are so hard to say
Even though you'd say them every day
Don't let your life be the butt of a joke
Get your lips round a cool black Pepsi Coke

Here she comes

    General CommentI think Alice is consumerism here. Or more specifically, the "Pepsi Coke" that satisfies for no other real reason than that's what it's advertised to do.

    General CommentI think "Alice" is just anther name for heroine:

    "The heat sticks to summer's heavy sweat
    Hang around it'll get hotter yet
    You got the shakes and it's gonne get worse
    Don't you know it's all a part of the curse

    She's got the hit that takes you into space
    Suck mud and make a deal for that taste
    You got nothing but you're riding on a star
    You couldn't guess that she could take you that far"

    General CommentA friend of mine told me she thinks it's a song about anilingus: "Think of ice cream sliding into a crack [...] Suck mud and make a deal for that taste [...] Don't let your life be the butt of a joke", etc.
    I still think it's more about heroine.

    General CommentAlice is slang for LSD.

    But the sweat and heat sound more like withdrawal symptoms from something like heroin. And Heroin does come in black tar form.

    General CommentAnd Black Tar Heroin is effectively administered as a suppository, it has more impurities and not so good to inject.
