Alison Hell

Album: Alice in Hell (1989)
  • Alice isn't frightening
    Alice aren't you scared
    Alice isn't is wonderful
    Living life afraid

    Don't look around the corner
    I might be lurking there
    Under the bed at night
    You're up till dawn again

    Alison hell, your mind begins to fold
    Alison hell, aren't you growing cold
    Alison hell, you are looking blue
    Alice in hell, what else can you do

    Alice

    I begin my rule, life hideous in your mind
    Crying out, you've lost your doll
    It isn't worth a dime

    Alison hell, your mind begins to fold
    Alison hell, aren't you growing cold
    Alison hell, what are you looking for
    Alice in hell, soon I close the door

    Sitting in the corner, you are naked and alone
    No one listened to your fears, you've created me

    Alice isn't frightening
    Alice aren't you scared
    I was killed at birth
    I shoot this final scene
    You're in the basement
    You're trapped insanity

    Alison hell, what were you looking for
    Alison hell, as I close the door
    Alison hell, here you shall dwell
    Alison hell, Alice dwells in hell

    Alice

    Alice
    Alison
    Alice
    In Hell

  • John Bates from VancouverThis story is patently untrue. I wrote the lyrics myself and it was inspired by a difficult relationship I was going through. I used metaphors liberally throughout but there was no unstable girl in Montreal.
  • Ozzy Osgood from St. Petersburg, FloridaWho was the actress playing Alison in the video?
