Miss Alice (explanation)

Book review By: CrowsSalvation
Song lyrics



(ONLY READ THIS IF YOU HAVE READ MY SONG) This is the explanation of my song 'Miss Alice'. Be warned that it may contain things you may not like. Im breaking it down to its lowest levels and things like religion are society are mentioned in negative ways. DO NOT take this as a stab at you personally, what you believe in, etc. I'm not trying to show hate for anythig, this is my personal opinion only. Read at your own risk.

The six purposes of Media

Creates the value: the imagination is a powerful thing.

Informs: there is always something hidden, something you dont know, etc

Destroys the value: fantasy vs. reality. we can dream all we want but we live in the real world.

Enertains: the song is both rhyming and distorted.

Re-inforces the value: the whole song is about a fantasy world, the imagination is a powerful thing.

Sells: the value of hiding and creativity.

Symbols (I could go on and decipher almost every line of the song, but these are the best ones.)

· Glass flowers - (Smashed glass flowers under insanity's hat) something stereotypically beautiful; a fake beauty.Insanity's hat, the destruction of the norm, of what's expected, that which others would consider weird, perhaps creepy, so on and so forth, etc.

· Copper trees - (Copper trees against my painted sky) in Greek mythology, we now live in the bronze era. The tree represents the people around me and of the current time. You may be able to make copper look like gold but in the end it's nothing more than copper, and eventually that copper will turn green. Green is envy, greed, egotistic.Painted sky, what I wish the world to be.

· Butterflies-(Butterflies under foot, laughter make no sound) caterpillars turn into butterflies, I used this as a way to express when someone reveals who they truly are, how they truly are, etc. having them 'under foot' is referring to when people don't accept the butterfly, who someone is, and tries to crush that difference.Laughter make no sound, someone talking behind your back, back stabbing you, betraying you, etc.

· Blue Paper Moon - (A sinister smile on the Blue Paper Moon) (Blue Paper Moon, showing us only what we want) darkness and beauty; a fragile existence.'Blue Paper Moon' is capitalized to state that it is a name/title (title as in status). Blue is loyalty. Also, it could be an expression to relate to religion vs. science; do gods really exist. In ancient times, people saw the sun and the moon as types of gods. The moon reflects the suns light. It shows us what we want, we don't like accepting the darker things in life, we want to stay in the light; that which we know.A sinister smile would suggest deception, for all we know, religion could have been all made up; someone pulling the strings from behind the sense since long ago. "Religion is the opium of the masses." - Karl Marx.

Methods(media class, the 13 methods. One of which, without fail, be present it any type of media.)

· Transfer:when something associates itself with something well known.

· Series:a group of _____ about a single (something) that tells a story.

· Magic ingredient:something that has a special element.

Literary devices (there are many, but I'm gonna list two)

· Allusion

· Personification

Light imagery

· Black

· Blue

· Monochromatic and complimentary colouring for the two above as well.

Theme

· Alice in Wonderland, references would be:the first line (Falling, falling, hidden by the darkness [the rabbits' hole]), 'the hare', 'the feline', 'clock', 'lullaby', 'little girl', 'tea', 'matted white fur', 'broken purring smile', 'torn hearts', and 'insanity's hat'.

Favorite line

'A sinister smile on the Blue Paper Moon'
