One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all

Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall

Tell them a hookah-Smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice when she was just small
When the men on the chess board get up and tell you where to go

And you just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen SLOPPY dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's LOST her head
Remember what the dormouse said

Feed your head
Feed your head

When logic and proportion
Have fallen so I'll be dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's off with her head
Remember what the doorknob said

    First off... This song is called white rabbit, not go ask alice. It's dormouse on both words, not doorknob as well... It's just a song with heavy references to alice's adventures in wonderland it's jeff air, they're gonna' make it their own, what do you expect? The whole concept is pretty awesome.

    I do not think it is dormouse or door knob in the Go Ask Alice verse. It has always sounded like dolmon, or dolman or dolmen in song. This paragraph explains why! The trade mark for Megalith Age is the dolmen. Many dolmens look much like a god-table. Maybe it was the idea of "Table for deities" since we see the growing virtual world in the sky. The gods were giants and humankind was the "legs for deities". Have a look at Orion or the Bearwatcher and you see the real giants. The dolmen would be a suitable table for the New Moon mare as they called her less than two thousand years ago. In Sumer Inanna sat at the god-table in face of Leo. That must be around midsummer after the harvest so she got fresh beer.
