"From The Inside" as written by David W. Foster, Bernie Taupin, Alice Cooper and Dick Wagner....
I got lost on the road somewhere was it texas or was it Canda Dinking whiskey in the morning light I work the stage all night long at first we laughed about it my long haired drunken friends
Proposed a toast to Jimmy's ghost
I never Dreamed that I would wind up on the losing end I'm stuck here on the inside looking out I'm just another case Where's my make up where's my face on the inside All got you kicks from what you saw up there Eight bucks even buys a folding chair I was downing seagrams on another flight and I worked that stage all night long You were screaming for the villain up there and i was much obliged the old road sure screwed me good this time It's hard to see where the vicious circle ends I'm stuck here on the inside looking out that's no big discrace where's my makeup where's' my face on the inside

    General CommentWell, I've heard from many sources that this whole album is based on people he met while in rehab (back then rehab wasn't what it is today, they basically threw him in an asylum with psychotics and mental patients). So, Millie and Billie is about a murderous couple that was there, Nurse Rosetta is about a priest who, well, let's just say can't keep it down, etc etc. All supposedly based on real people. And this one, I believe, is about himself. I'd say that's pretty big of him to tell us all about the crazies in the asylum, but before he does so admit that he also was one and tell us about himself.

    General CommentI believe this one is pretty obviously about Alice's battle with alcholism.

    General CommentWhat Surgicalsteel said is correct with the Title Song, From The Inside and maybe one or two others about himself. Always thought How You Gonna See Me Now" was a great song and Same for "Quiet Room" which are the two others that are about himself.
