Alice doesn't know she's been forgotten
She doesn't know
She doesn't care
Alice doesn't know that she is everything in everyone
who saw her slouched and sitting there
Holding out her hands into the air

All is good, all is clear,
Alice could begin to wonder if her hands are even there
All is floating in the air between her shoulders and your heart
As she sits paralyzed and stares
all is fair

Alice sips and swallows what she's given
her soup is cold
Her bread is bare
Alice doesn't know that she has swallowed what was left of what was living
She's just sitting there
Hiding neath her blanket by the stair
All is good, All is clear
Alice could begin to wonder if her brother sees her there
All was frozen in the air between your shoulders and her heart
As you stood paralyzed and stared
All is fair
All is fair

Alice could be anything she wants to be
Alice could anyone she's ever seen
Alice could be shivering
And Alice could be simmering
And Alice could be glittering
Like diamonds, like the pearl she's hiding
Hold on for Alice
Hold on for Alice.....
