Like Alices
by C Kafka

The light slices through the window
The moon devours the room in speckled array
I look out to find a peace of mind
But the city below bellows her call
Of morbid decay

Nothing different here between night and day
Or maybe it's just my mood
My thoughts keep returning to you
And to the days when we were just us two
I try not to let them remind me
Of what you felt you had to do

And how I couldn't stop you

You and I were young, of course
Now I carry all the weight of the remorse
My thoughts unsteady and my steps unsure
Only time can mend the floor
That broke from underneath
And took so many in its toll

We were all like Alice 
Falling down some wretched rabbit hole
All the lives that it stole
The damage is still untold

And though I tried to…

We were ali Alices
Falling down some wretched rabbit hole
All the lives that it stole
The damage still untold

What you felt you had to do
I didn't stop you
I couldn't stop you

- ALICE IN A JAZZ BAR - Raymond DeMeriden stumbled upon Alice when he tumbled into a back-alley bar in New York.  He says he was lucky to have his cell phone (and his life) to capture this image and sound.

 

Credits Unknown - The musos slipped out the back door before Ray could ask them their names.  (That fellow holding the teapot looks familiar, isn't that James Billo? hmmmmm....)
