  • (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)

  • D-rock from Oklahoma Brent Smith and the ENTIRE band just click on all cylinders no matter what they are asked to do. They make music for everyone, no matter what you are going through in life, I think they have a song that can give you the strength to overcome the demons which we all face on a day to day basis. Truly Gifted and understand the struggles.... please keep doing what you all do, for all of us.
  • Claire from Forsyth, GaWhat's up with that part about the pill?
