The dark faerytales contest made me think how would it be if the hatter was an evil vampiric hypnotizer, trapping Alice in dreams to be his puppet.
You know, kinda like that twilight dude.
Underland has a good potential to be nightmarish.
Shinedown - Her name is Alice - [link]
"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
And shapes the shadows
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 shes 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"
