    The title and the words "...and we fell down a rabbit hole" are references to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll who reportedly wrote or imagined the novel whilst taking LSD or similar.

    "Pre-chorus 1" would fit with the experience of reading "Alice's Adventure's in Wonderland" whilst taking LSD, lovers having a shared hallucination ("I felt your arms twisting round me"). Verse 2 seems to describe the hallucination turning awry ("and whispers turned to talking/ and talking turned to screams, oh..."). The final verse appears to refer to the unnamed lover wanting more ("You searched the world for something else/ To make you feel like what we had") after their Wonderland had turned awry ("We both went mad").

    The chorus suggests that Taylor still cherishes the adventure in a bittersweet way ("We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it / And life was never worse but never better").
