Shinedown – Her Name is Alice lyrics

[If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because, everything would be what it isn't]

I invite you to a world where there is no such thing as time,
And every creature lends 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,
Through shapes and shadows.
Alice [Alice],
And even though she's 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 painfully 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.


She's unlocked the meaning for you.

This kingdom,
Good riddance,
Good freedom,
And innocence,
Has brought this whole thing,


She's unlocked the meaning for you

(Red knights, white knights, marching into the fight. Drink me, shrink me, fill me to sink me. X2)

She's unlocked the meaning for you.

[And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?]

    I feel like I'm overreaching, but I think this song is also about someone who overdoses on some sort of pill, out of curiosity, and sends themselves into a coma, and when she (or he, I guess) wakes up, the person realises that they just messed up their life, and want to go back, but can't.
    And perhaps they got addicted to whatever they took? I'm not an expert on how these things work.
    This is what happens when you listen to a song too often, lol.

    I'm a fan of "Alice in Wonderland" ever since I've watched Johnny Depp is included as one of the characters. And as I listen to the song. All I can visualize is that the song is just all about Alice. Hehe very nice song by the way. One of my favorites. :)
